You pick the spot, and Camp'd Out comes to you.
Across the US, companies are ramping up the glamping game. Here’s where to stay when you want the great outdoors, creature comforts, and next-level hospitality all rolled into one.

Having brought high design and five-star hospitality, but not brick and mortar, to luxurious tent camps in destinations such as the Texas Hill Country, the Hudson Valley, and Vail, Colorado, Collective Retreats is coming to Governors Island, off the tip of lower Manhattan. Founder and CEO Peter Mack dubs Collective’s approach “Aspen Hospitality”—a blend of traditional hospitality and new, adventurous spirit. “You have all the benefits of an amazing hotel where a fine hotel can’t exist,” Mack says. The Governors Island camp will be no different. When it opens on June 1, tents—and soon, customized shipping containers—will offer unparalleled views of the Statue of Liberty. From $150.
Ever been to a beautiful place in the wilderness (or even somewhere less far afield) and thought, “This would make a great site for my dog’s birthday/best friend’s bachelor(ette)/family reunion camping shindig,” but then grown weary at the idea of lugging all the required gear to make it so? Camp’d Out has got you covered. The new company, which launched in March, allows patrons to pick the place for a luxury camping experience, and it does the rest, from setup to tear down. Rent one of its beautiful canvas tents and choose what you want to deck it out with. Mattresses, coolers, plants, even a camp butler are at your disposal. From $1,500.
