If you love the concept of camping, but not necessarily all the packing, unpacking, set-up, and living life on roll-up beds or fold-up chairs, then you might be more of a fan of “glamping.” If you really want to get a feel for enjoying the “stars at night” in Texas, if might help if you’re enjoying where you’re staying a whole lot more. That’s why glamping exists. It’s not a new concept, but it’s one that’s taken off like wildfire and is the amalgamation of the words “glamor” and “camping.” Sleep under the stars but in a comfortable bed with the use of electricity and a private bathroom. That being said, Texas has some outstanding natural beauty and some equally outstanding glamping sites from which to view it. Here are three such sites, including the comforts of home.
Places to Stay
Foolproof Texas Glamping Trips to Enjoy the ‘Stars at Night’
Geronimo Creek Retreat in Seguin

Each tipi comes fully furnished, has satellite TV, two to three queen size beds, a kitchenette, and a private bathroom. They accommodate a total of six adults, which makes them a great option for friends and families.
The Texas Bell in Spring Branch
