What is a glamping pod?
Many glamping pods or teepees are typically made out of wood or a strong fabric, with many even including electric and indoor plumbing. Yes, you will not be forced to hike to the bathroom and dig a hole to do your business.
These luxurious pods usually offer you the comfort of a hotel stay, such as a bed, chairs, a small table (or two), lights fixtures, pools, and more.
Whether you're hoping to be close to the desert, mountains, a waterway, or completely enveloped among the trees, glamping makes it possible for even the most basic camper to have an overall fun experience.
