What About DIY Glamping in Florida?
Just because you want to go glamping in Florida doesn’t mean that you have to stay at one of our top-rated Florida glamping destinations.
DIY glamping is another option. So, what is DIY glamping? Well, it’s basically like tent camping turned more luxurious.
Unlike staying at a glamping destination, you pack along all of your own glamping gear, including a glamping tent. The best DIY glamping tents are typically canvas wall tents or canvas tipis thanks to their overall portability.
As for the glamping itself, you have a few main options. You can build a permanent or semi-permanent wooden platform for your tent if you own land in Florida or know someone who owns land. Or, you can take all of your glamping supplies to a campground like you would when tent camping.
For most people, the second option is the more likely scenario. Remember to pack other important glamping gear like a warm sleeping bag, a cooler, and a camping stove.
To me, what really makes glamping so special is great camping lighting and a portable power station so I can power all my favorite devices while still enjoying the great outdoors. A camping hammock, like our top-rated Mock ONE, is another fantastic addition.
RV camping is another popular style of glamping. Don’t have your own RV? Our RV rental tool can help you find a great RV rental in your local area.
