16 Best Glamping Spots in Washington State

Washington State is blessed with bustling cities with famed sites and cuisine, as well as natural wonders within its beautiful state parks, pristine lakes, rivers, and dramatic coast—and camping is one of the prime ways to delve into much of it. If you find it hard to depart from the city and totally embrace the natural surroundings, there’s always glamping. Glamping is now a term officially listed in the dictionary and is quoted as “a form of camping involving accommodation and facilities more luxurious than those associated with traditional camping.” So yeah, Washington’s got that, and these are the most beautiful places to enjoy it.
