Texas Safari Tents, Tipis, Glamping Tents, & Eco Domes

Looking for some unique outdoor lodging for a glamping trip - try these safari tents, tipis, or eco domes. Organized glamping trips feature all of the exposure to the great outdoors as traditional camping trips, without the bugs, wild animals, sudden storms, leaking tents, smelly sleeping bags, and questionable food but with amenities such as tents that are rigged for electrical power, which means occupants can operate appliances, reading lamps, and climate controls. People may sleep on full-size air mattresses, or even regular spring mattresses. The tents or tipis are like stand-alone rooms with canvas walls and ceilings, hardwood floors and made-up beds with heated mattress pads.

Blue River Camp Glamping Tent

Glamping (glorious camping or camping without the pain of setting up a tent, sleeping on air mattress that goes flat, no water, etc.) is the new fad and it doesn't get much better than spending the night in a glamping tent at Blue River Camp. First off, the glamping tent has cots with comfortable mattresses, a couple fans, and a table plus outside the tent is a water spigot, picnic table, and light. Second reason to glamp here is the cool Tiki cabanas and chairs and tables along the shore of the San Marcos River which is perfect for tubing, swimming, and relaxing. Read about our fun weekend at Blue River Camp.
