Glamping has filled a void for adventurous travelers who don’t want to brave the wild in a nylon tent, but still want to experience nature away from RVs and packed campgrounds. But as with most new things, the quality and experience of glamping can vary, with guests often unsure of what to expect.

Tentrr is a new site that’s hoping to take the unknown factor out of glamping while providing campers with exclusive access to locations across the U.S. — many of which are totally remote. Tentrr partners with private landowners to install a fully equipped campsite on their property. Every Tentrr Signature Campsite has a sturdy canvas tent on an elevated platform, bed, wood stove, Adirondack chairs, fire pit, grill, picnic table, sun shower, and camp toilet.

Guests can choose from over 600 locations across the U.S., and since Tentrr works with private landowners, guests won’t have to deal with loud neighbors or crowded campgrounds. Glampers can experience life on a lavender farm on the banks of a river in Maine with site-specific perks like kayaks, fishing, and daily breakfast — featuring homemade lavender honey — for an additional fee. On the West Coast, Tentrr has a property in a California redwood forest that’s adjacent to a 2,500-acre state park. The site boasts miles of hiking trails and a private spring.

Glamping sites start at $100 per night, and are equipped with the basics. Glampers will need to pack essentials like linens, cookware, firewood, and light sources.
