Glamping: a style of camping with amenities and, in some cases, resort-style services not usually associated with "traditional" camping
Glamping combines a day hiking, paddling, cycling with a sleep in the luxury of a comfortable sleeping tent and in many cases, full-course meals and guiding services. To all the hardcore backcountry campers reading this, try it sometime. It's actually a ton of fun! FOLLOWING ARE the top 10 places we've found in the great Province of Ontario.
1. BARTLETT LODGE, ALGONQUIN PARK - Guide tent's
It's a cabin with a fabric roof and walls. Each tent is fully furnished with a king-size bed. Bartlett Lodge has been creating memories for Algonquin visitors since 1917. Located on Cache Lake at around the mid-point of the Highway 60 corridor, the magic begins the moment you enter one of the two park gates, park your car on our shoreline and board the ‘freighter canoe’ for the short ride to our Lodge. From that moment on, you’re closer than you ever dreamed possible to Algonquin’s history, the inspiration for Canadian impressionists, wildlife and the sense of calm that is part of every experience.
