Camping’s not for everybody. I get that. It’s dirty. There’s no air conditioning. Cell reception is terrible. A bear might eat your kayak.

My husband wants to go camping everyone now and then and I'm like, nope unless there's a comfy bed, and a door I can close I'm out. He gets so mad at me. However, have you heard of glamping? The concept of “glamping” (i.e. “glamorous camping”) you’ll find plenty of “off the grid” options for a unique weekend getaway right here in the Tri-states!

I'm always looking for a different place to getaway with hubby, or the family and we love trying new things. Some of these glamping sites are perfect for both, and some are great to leave the electronics at home and de-plug from life for a few days. Whether you looking for hiking trails, fishing, or just sitting on a porch and enjoy what Mother Nature has to offer, these glamping sites are perfect for all of that and much more. And the best part, no of the require you sleeping in a camping bag, on the ground with bugs and snakes.

Here are just a few of the coolest (and oddest) glamping sites in Missouri, Illinois, and Iowa.
