Glamping – ‘Glamorous Camping’ is the Latest Trend in Outdoor Travel

Glamping is a refreshing way to experience the great outdoors while having all the creature comforts of home like a comfortable bed, electricity, heat and other modern necessities. Look no further, Sweetwater Bungalows brings that desirable camping experience to a whole other level!
These deluxe Bungalow tent cabins by Sweetwater Bungalows combine the stability and protection of a wood frame with the lightness and beauty of fabric wall. Together with windows and door, a cozy Bungalow is created. Unique to the market of prefabricated and portable shelters they are affordable, versatile and provide an attractive lodging option and revenue source for campgrounds, RV parks and other resort types. Richly atmospheric and intimate in scale, these charming Bungalow tent-cabins create harmony between indoor and outdoor living. Co-owner Blair Paterson comments, “The Bungalows allow you to feel at one with nature and experience the pleasures of the outdoors in a truly comfortable environment.” One might call this glamping on steroids or perhaps “house camping.”
