Georgia is home to a surprising number of awesome glamping rentals.
From minutes to beaches to deep in the mountains to smackdab in the middle of farmland, there’s a glampsite for everyone in the Peach State.
Here are our top 7 picks for the best places for glamping in Georgia.
Glamping in Georgia
Whether you prefer a night in a canvas tent, tipi, yurt, cabin, or something even more unique, one of our 7 favorite Georgia glamping rentals is sure to be a perfect fit.
Historic Banning Mills
There’s a lot to love about glamping at Historic Banning Mills in Whitesburg, Georgia.
In addition to hotel rooms, cabins, and RV campsites, this adventure resort offers one of the most impressive glamping rentals in Georgia – their one-of-a-kind treehouse rooms.
Rent a treehouse room and you’ll see like you’re straight out of Swiss Family Robinson.
The treehouse rooms are cozy and well-appointed with everything you need for a luxurious glamping trip. Expect king beds, private bathrooms, and spacious decks with views. You’ll be treated to a complimentary country breakfast each morning of your stay.
While staying at Historic Banning Mills, you’re always just minutes away from a wide-range of fun activities, including ziplining, rock climbing, horseback riding, and so much more.
Georgia Glamping Company
Georgia Glamping Company offers awesome glamping experiences in two parts of the state.
Whether you go glamping at their Lake Lanier or Clarks Hill Lake location, you can expect comfortable glamping tents to get you up close and personal with the great outdoors without sacrificing modern comforts.
Indeed, these glamping tents are extremely comfortable, not to mention stylish. Each is set up off the ground on a wooden platform. Inside, you’ll find a comfortable bed with proper linens, plenty of places to sit and relax, and romantic mood lighting.
All the tents offered by Georgia Glamping Company are completely rainproof. Air conditioners and heaters are also available depending on the season.
Both the Lake Lanier and Clark Hills Lake locations are quiet, pleasant, and relaxing. In addition to hanging out around the fire pit, you’ll be just minutes from hiking, swimming, and other outdoor activities.
Sweetwater Creek State Park
Sweetwater Creek State Park is one of the most popular state parks in Georgia for tent and RV camping.
But did you know they also offer glamping rentals?
Staying in a yurt at Sweetwater Creek is one of the best ways to enjoy this state park. You’ll still be out in the peaceful great outdoors, but you’ll still have the modern conveniences of home close at hand.
Not only are these yurt rentals cute and cozy, but they have comfortable beds, a large indoor sitting area, and a spacious outdoor deck to hang out. Outdoor cooking accommodations are also provided. Restrooms with hot showers are just steps away.
Yurt camping at Sweetwater Creek State Park is perfect for those that want to experience Georgia’s natural beauty – but with a few more luxuries than camping.
Little Racoon Key
Georgia has a lot of awesome glamping opportunities – but Little Racoon Key might well be the very best.
The unique beach glamping rental is set on beautiful Little Racoon Key, a small reef island off Georgia’s coast. It’s part of the state’s Golden Isles.
Not only does island glamping really help you disconnect and feel separate from the rest of the world for a few days, but it also provides the chance to see wildlife you can’t see anywhere else, including dolphins.
Another special thing about glamping on Little Racoon Key is that the rental is for the entire island. The folks that run this glamping resort currently only accommodate one group at a time – so you’ll have your very own private island for the night!
As for the accommodations, expect an exceedingly stylish glamping tent with a comfortable memory foam bed (and luxurious bedding) and string lights. Bring your own food, have the resort deliver groceries, or opt to eat chef prepared meals (often made with local ingredients).
Owl in the Oak Treehouse
Prefer to find your Georgia glamping rental through Airbnb?
Then let us recommend Owl in the Oak Treehouse, a unique treehouse glamping experience near Duluth, Georgia.
The treehouse is conveniently located in a neighborhood forest, but due to the thick growth of oaks it feels very isolated.
Visitors can expect a small living area plus a lofted bedroom with plush queen bed. Outside, a wraparound deck offers the perfect place to relax. This Georgia treehouse rental also has a small kitchenette and a small bathroom.
Not only is Owl in the Oak Treehouse an incredibly special space, but guests rant and rave about just how friendly and communicative the hosts are through the entire stay.
Jackson North / St. Mary’s KOA Holiday
Glamping at a KOA? Yes, it’s possible!
Head to Jackson North / St. Mary’s KOA Holiday for the best KOA glamping in Georgia.
In addition to the standard full hookup RV sites, grassy tent campsites, and cabin rentals, this KOA also offers a handful of cozy glamping teepees.
Be forewarned though – these teepees are a little less luxurious and quite a bit more rustic than other Georgia glamping rentals.
That said, they do have comfortable beds, mini fridges, and even a television. Heat and air conditioning are also provided.
But what really makes glamping at a KOA special is the amenities. Children in particular love the on-site amenities which include a year-round pool, hot tub, game room, mini golf, and complimentary breakfast.
Getaway is quickly becoming one of the premier glamping providers in the country.
With destinations in several states, each Getaway rental is designed to help guests unplug from society (particularly from their smartphones) and reconnect with family.
In Georgia, Getaway Chattahoochee is specifically designed to help you escape Atlanta.
The handcrafted tiny cabins are tucked away deep in nature. The surroundings are absolutely beautiful. Inside the cabins, expect fluffy queen beds, hot shower and private toilets, and a small kitchenette area for cooking.
Unique among Getaway glamping rentals is the provided cell phone lockbox. Guests are encouraged to forgo cellphone use while staying here to better appreciate the one-of-a-kind relaxing experience.
DIY Glamping is Another Option
One of the awesome things about glamping is that it doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg.
If you prefer to forgo a Georgia glamping rental in favor of a do-it-yourself approach, then you’re in luck – DIY glamping is totally possible.
Like traditional camping, it all starts with bringing the right tent.
Of course, a standard camping tent – like a family camping tent – will do the trick, but seasoned glampers know that a dedicated glamping tent – like a canvas glamping tent – makes the experience even more magical.
In fact, we recommend focusing on luxury and comfort while preparing for a DIY glamping trip.
Start with your sleep system. Ditch the standard sleeping pad and sleeping bag in favor of a large air mattress – ideally with its own sheets, blankets from home, and comfortable pillows.
From here, think ambiance. Add in some string lights and a camping lantern for atmosphere.
Personally, glamping (and camping) is all about the food. I like to plan delicious camping meals beforehand and bring a fully outfitted camp kitchen to cook them. Don’t forget a French press to make camp coffee in the morning!
The great thing about DIY glamping is that it can be as luxurious or as rustic as you want – and it’s almost always affordable.

RV Glamping is Yet Another Option
Not everyone who is interested in glamping wants to stay in a glamping rental or go the DIY glamping route.
Well then, it sounds like RV glamping is for you.
In a way, camping in an RV is the original form of luxury camping. You’re still able to appreciate the great outdoors, often in a beautiful campground, but you still have all the luxuries from home.
Most RVs, trailers, and even camper vans not only have a comfortable place to sleep and a small living space, but also pack in a kitchen to prepare meals and a bathroom to shower and take care of business.
