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.

From retro trailers to safari tents, these are some of the top-notch places to glamp near San Antonio to consider for your next Texas getaway.
