In Vol. 35, No. 3 of Farm Show (2011), there is an article on “Glamping” as a rural getaway (glamorous camping). “You still sit around the campfire under the stars and enjoy nature. But your wall tent will already be pitched with a real bed and real linens with amenities like running water, electricity, a refrigerator, and gas barbeque for cooking.” I’m all about traditionali camping, but, willing to spend a little money, this sounds pretty good to me! A host to a glamping site says, “People come out here and uncharge.” He suggests it’s an idea rural producers could use to diversify their income, although you may need to look into permits and zoning that might be required.

I've seen the concept bandied about before and it seems like it might be something worth looking into.

Would definitely be a zoning isue here in Deschutes County. Rural wedding venues have really caused an uproar.
But I'd much rather see Glamping than more golf course destination resorts.

I went glamping for a night in a tipi that featured air conditioning, a bed, a dresser, and power outlets. It was pretty fun!

Here's Dog Mountain Farm east of Seattle that has added a lovely glamping feature to their place
