Glamping is about more than just being comfortable in the great outdoors. It’s easier, and a real time-saver: not having to set up a tent and cook dinner on a campfire gives you extra time to enjoy the destination.

On top of that, there’s nothing wrong with wanting to enjoy more of the outdoors without giving up basic amenities. And in San Antonio, glamping is quite popular, so you’ll find plenty of spots where you can leave the big city behind and enjoy more unique digs in nature where you’re still guaranteed a good night’s sleep.

By the kitchenette area, there’s a counter to enjoy your meals while admiring nature, though you can get even better views from your large private deck. The lux bathroom includes a spa tub along with the shower, but you’ll definitely want to try the outdoor shower, too.

If you’re in need of somewhere to glamp in San Antonio with a big group, this is a great choice as you can book all the tents on property to sleep up to 12 guests.
