When we talk about going camping, some people aren’t so sure if “roughing it” is for them. That’s until them try glamping (luxury camping). We had so much fun in Oklahoma City glamping inside a Conestoga wagon. We thought we would seek out and share more locations around the country where you could do a little covered wagon camping.
Here are 8 unforgettable glamping experiences you can try. They range from all-inclusive dude ranches to more primitive lodging with the basic amenities. Yet, all deliver an experience you’ll be telling your friends and family for years to come.
