Glamping — or glamorous camping — is basically an upgrade in accommodations for those who love nature, adventure, and the great outdoors.
Whether it be in a treehouse, yurt, RV, caboose, teepee, geodesic domes, vintage airstream, or lodge, these places are for those who either want a unique sleeping experience, or lots of luxury. (Or both!)
Our list includes everything from accommodations that come with a private chef, to just a simple step up from popping your own tent with outdoor showers. Read on for some of the best glamping Georgia has to offer.
Getaway… to a cozy cabin in nature starting at $99! Getaway takes this mantra to heart, with a mission to offer people, couples, friends and families the ability to disconnect and recharge – and live life a little more deeply.
Originally building escape pods in the Northeast, Getaway has ventured into our neck of the woods for the first time, with a “camp” in Suches. Even the most avid North Georgia adventurist might need help with that location…it’s in Union County, but much closer to Dahlonega that Blairsville. Expertly, in the middle of no where.
What’s the worst part about camping? For me, it’s sleeping on the ground. That’s why I love glamping so much…especially when it comes with a comfy, cozy bed!
Think of RVShare as the “AirBnB of Camping.” Pick your glamping home…a camper van, a pull-behind trailer, or a 36 ft home on wheels. You decide. And when you rent, you can pick the RV to match your destination and amount of time you’ll be on the road.
Pick up the RV of your dreams…or have one delivered to your favorite camping spot. You decide. Either way, a good night’s rest, air-conditioning and indoor toilet make glamping unforgetable!
There is nothing as fun – and cozy – as a treehouse. Blue Ridge is home to at least three unmatched beauties. You’ll find one vineyard location built by The TreeHouse Guys… another sitting on a 33-acre farm with plenty of stocked ponds… and yet another location with four unique builds designed just for you.
Pack your bags… and the s’mores… it’s going to be a great weekend.
Glamping Tents at Lake Lanier and Clarks Hill Lake
Complete with queen and twin beds, linens, a mini fridge, heat and air, rugs, and lighting – when you think of glamping, you think of this. And if you have family and friends that want to join you, Roxy the Retro RV is also available at Shady Grove.
We stayed with them shortly after they opened, in the tent pictured above. Since then they have grown considerably, mostly in north Georgia.
Other locations include:
- River Forks Campground, also at Lake Lanier
- NGCT Park in Lula, GA
- Amicalola Falls
- Clarks Hill near Augusta
- Unicoi State Park
- Kingstone Downs in Rome, GA
- They even offer wine bungalows at Chateau Elan (for day use)
You'll find bell tents (like the one in the photo), safari tents, geo domes and the cutest retro RVs.

Stay in a Teepee at Jacksonville North/St. Mary's KOA

The teepee sleeps four, and comes outfitted with air conditioning, a mini fridge, and two full-size beds. It would make the perfect home base for a day trip to Cumberland Island.
Treehouses at Historic Banning Mills
Live high in the trees with a stay in a treehouse at Historic Banning Mills!
Dubbed "a cozy rendition of the Swiss Family Robinson’s rooms but with all the modern conveniences," these stilted rooms in the tree canopy are accessible via a skywalk reminiscent of a short suspension bridge.
They include a king bed, gas log fireplace, jetted tub for two, private bathroom with shower, and covered back deck overlooking the Gorge. While there is only a microwave and mini fridge, your stay does include breakfast each morning at the main lodge.
Glamping with Tentrr
Georgia’s first Signature Site from Tentrr (pictured above) was located on 23 beautiful acres of farming land near Athens, GA. We loved staying at this fruit farm! Unfortunately, this particular spot has since closed, but there are now other great options in Georgia that you'll love.
Think of Tentrr as the “AirBnB of Camping” if you will. You reserve a designated location for as low as $99 per night, and they handle the hard parts.
Yurts at Georgia State Parks
The 10 yurts at Sweetwater Creek State Park in Lithia Springs offer a unique stay at the park.
The yurts here sleep 6 and have bunk beds and a futon – you provide the sleeping bags and/or linens. They include heat, a ceiling fan, wood floors, front and back decks, and electricity.
Yurts can also be found at other Georgia State Parks too -- including High Falls, Red Top Mountain, Fort Yargo (seen above), Cloudland Canyon, Skidaway, and Tugaloo.
Safari Tents & Yurts at Stone Mountain Park
The safari tents are set up for you on wood platforms and include a queen bed, two camp mats, a dining table and chairs, a fan, and lamps. Outside you’ll find a deck overlooking the lake, a grill, a picnic table, and a fire ring.

Treehouses at Treetop Hideaways
Whatever you imagine when you think of staying in a treehouse room – think bigger and better and you’ll get these tree houses at Treetop Hideaways! On the side of Lookout Mountain, about 15 minutes from Chattanooga, you will find two amazing treehouses.

If you’re looking for a glamping experience that can handle your large group – the six luxury glamping tents in Ellaville would be perfect! Located two hours south of Atlanta on a beautiful family farm, you can rent all of them for your group, or just one for your family.
They all feature fresh linens, towels, heating and air, private bathrooms and showers, electrical outlets, mini fridges, a fire pit and porches with view of the lake. There is also a shared lakefront dock house with a fireplace, TV, porches, and a full commercial kitchen for your use.
Atlanta Alpaca Treehouse
Located in the City of Atlanta, in the middle of a bamboo forest, surrounded by animals, in a treehouse made entirely of reclaimed architectural antiques? Sign. Me. Up.
The Atlanta Alpaca Treehouse is gorgeous, and has all the amenities you’re looking for when you think of glamping. The treehouse sleeps 4, and features a queen size bed, and a full size sleeper sofa. There is a composting toilet, marble wash basin, and small fridge for you inside the treehouse, and a fully-outfitted, private bath a short walk away.
The Hike Inn
Putting the Hike Inn into words is so tough, because it is just so completely unique and amazing! You must do it! The Hike Inn is located at Amicalola Falls State Park, and the only way to get there is to hike the 5 miles in.
Once there, you’ll be staying in a small room with bunk beds – but the real magic is outside and all around. You are completely surrounded by nature and like-minded people, you will be served the most amazing dinner and breakfasts, you will be able to relax and rest your mind, or challenge others to a game of cornhole or chess.
You will not regret waking early to see the sunrise over the mountains, before hiking the 5 miles back to your car.
Stay on Little St. Simons Island
Little St. Simons Island is accessible only by boat, and only 32 people can stay here at a time, so it’s the perfect place to get away from it all. (Pictured above.)
There are several accommodation options, including rooms in their Hunting Lodge, shared cottages, or you can reserve a house all to yourself.
This is an all-inclusive experience with meals and snacks being served throughout the day. There are plenty of activities to take part in here including fishing, swimming, birding, and boating!
For all you train lovers out there, this experience is for you!
The Folkston Caboose offered by Railside Lodging – Ms. Chessie – can sleep 5, and features two sets of bunk beds, a couch, a mini fridge, and a large covered deck.
It’s located along the busy CSX Funnel, which means you can see as many as 60 trains go by every day!
Glamping on a Private Island
No, seriously. You can stay on your own private island!
Little Racoon Key is only 10 minutes from Jekyll Island, and you can be the couple who has it all to yourself.
Here you will stay in a 26 x 15 foot luxury canvas tent and sleep on a memory foam bed with designer sheets. Groceries can be ordered from St. Simons Island for your stay if you’d like to cook your meals yourself, or a chef prepared meal can be arranged.
You will also receive an ancient oyster reef lesson as part of your stay, and even the trip over to Little Racoon Key will be an adventure, as the waters are teaming with dolphins and other wildlife.
The Sereni-tree Treehouse located in Suches was built from reclaimed lumber from the old Hoyt Farmhouse. Filled with character, the treehouse sleeps 2.
And bonus -- you can walk right out the front door and begin a hike through the national forest up to Pilot Mountain!
