Let's Go Glamping!
Looking for something different to do this summer? Georgia offers an abundance of outdoor options, including several “glamping” campsites where visitors can be one with nature, and still have indoor plumbing and plug in their hair dryers.
To get away from the hustle of Atlanta, look no further than Buckhead. It’s home to one swanky Atlanta treehouse that is set back on a wooded lot near a peaceful creek. Three separate tree houses connected by bridges make this space large enough for two people to stay, but children and pets are a no-no. The owner originally built the triple platform treehouse as a space for him and his wife to get away and enjoy nature. Now it’s booked weeks in advance by guests from all over the world!
Stone Mountain Park
Yurts, or circular tents with modern amenities like beds and electricity, are also an option for the glamping set at Stone Mountain Park. Each yurt has air conditioning and heating, electricity and furniture, but campers still need to bring sleeping bags or linens. Children are welcome, but pets are not allowed.
Sweetwater Creek State Park
Tucked away in Lithia Springs, Sweetwater Creek State Park opened up its 10-yurt village last year. The yurts are fully furnished and have electricity. Bathhouses are within walking distance. During the summer, the park also offers boat, kayak, paddleboard and canoe rentals at the George Sparks Reservoir.
