The most stunning scenery in the country is found throughout the Adirondack mountains, so glamping in the Adirondacks is a natural choice. As camping and glamping season nears, more state and national parks offer tent and cabin camping while private glamp spots continue to grow in number, with ever increasing amenities and activities.
The Adirondack mountains are a vast wilderness in the northeast part of New York state, bordering Vermont to the east and Canada to the north. We recommend checking out these five glamping Adirondacks destinations, where you can truly get away from crowds and into the shady forests and cool mountain waters.

Nearby activities, with arranging services offered by the hosts, include tubing or kayaking adventures, fly-fishing, hiking, swimming in the Battenkill river, cycling or more. With prices starting from $120/night, this place is a bargain for a comfortable stay in the Adirondacks.
