Glamping in Arizona: 5 Unforgettable Getaways for Couples

Glamping in Arizona may be the best way to experience the beauty that this stunning state has to offer. You can cozy up outside your tent, drink in hand, with cacti as your neighbors and dazzling stars above. We have five glamping getaways for you to choose from to make your next visit to Arizona unforgettable.

Perks of Glamping in Arizona

While Arizona is a fantastic place to go regular camping and RVing, glamping in Arizona gets you out of the RV park and into unique lodgings that show the best Arizona has to offer. In our opinion, these accommodations far exceed any motel or hotel when it comes to experiencing the REAL Arizona.

Choose between all the luxuries of a fancy hotel or a bit more rustic, with just a bed and a wood-burning stove under a canvas tent. Many of these locations are near national parks and amongst incredible desert scenery.

5 Amazing Places for Glamping in Arizona

Glamping in Arizona is an experience like nothing else. With many National Parks right in your backyard, the vast expanse of the sky at night, and the cacti that seem to arise everywhere, glamping here is a true getaway. 

You can choose from luxury canvas tents, backcountry yurts, small canvas villages, and even an Airstream or a covered wagon. These five unique places for glamping in Arizona will provide you with many memorable moments.

5. Arizona Nordic Village

About: Fifteen miles northwest of Flagstaff, you’ll find the Arizona Nordic Village. In the Coconino National Forest, you can choose between backcountry or frontcountry yurts.

Glamping Amenities: If you like to rough it while being snuggled in a shelter that is more than just a tent, this glamping Arizona experience is for you. Each yurt has either beds or bunk beds with mattress pads, wood-burning stoves, picnic tables, and nearby portable toilets. 

You’ll need to bring in your sleeping bags and pillows. You’ll also need to bring water, food, and cooking utensils. There are battery-operated lanterns provided, but if you want more light, be sure to obtain a headlamp with you, as well.

For those who cherish a hot cup of joe and a warm shower, pay a visit to the lodge after exploring the many nearby trails on your morning hike. The club has complimentary coffee, tea, and hot chocolate, along with hot showers for an additional fee.

Arizona Is the Perfect Place for a Glamping Getaway

Arizona is the perfect place for a glamping getaway regardless of the weather. Winter in Northern Arizona is full of exciting possibilities, with hiking, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing. Coming home to a canvas tent with a wood-burning stove and cozy blankets is a great way to spend the evening after playing in the snow.

Summer in Arizona can be pretty toasty, but there’s still much to explore. When you’ve spent your day hiking around Verde Valley, Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument, or the Grand Canyon, heading back to your glamping site for a soak in a cold tub is luxury.

But the weather isn’t the only reason to go glamping in Arizona. The diversity of the terrain makes Arizona perfect for glamping. From the wooded forests of Northern Arizona to the southern valleys that house the millions of majestic Saguaros, Arizona has a lot to offer.

Do Glamping Getaways Have Toilets?

Most, if not all, glamping getaways will have toilets. Some may be outhouses or vault toilets. There may be composting toilets located inside the tent or shelter itself. Some bathhouses may be shared with other nearby glamping guests. There may be real flushing toilets with everything you’d expect from a hotel bathroom. Rest assured, though; you will have a seat somewhere when glamping in Arizona.

Treat Yourself While Glamping in Arizona

From vintage campers, canvas tents, and covered wagons, your camping expectations have skyrocketed. This isn’t your traditional camping trip. Glamping in Arizona isn’t camping. It’s an experience full of natural beauty and fine luxuries, all combined to create an unforgettable getaway.
