Frequently Asked Questions

What is the average cost of a glamping tent?

The cost of a glamping tent can vary widely depending on the size, shape, and additional amenities. The average glamping tent costs around $400 on the low end and easily $5,000 or more on the high end.

What are round glamping tents called?

Round glamping tents are either called bell tents or glamping domes.

Do glamping tents typically have toilets?

Luxury glamping tents, if pithed at an established campsite, should have access to a toilet, although it may not be in the tent itself. There may be an attached outhouse, shared public restroom or, in more upscale glamping set-ups, an en-suite bathroom.

Are glamping tents waterproof?

Yes, glamping tents are designed to be waterproof or water-resistant and are often made with a durable, tightly woven canvas that is itself water-resistant. Often a waterproof coating is added for extra measure on luxury camping tents.

Can I take a glamping tent on a backpacking trip?

We’d advise against it. Glamping tents are typically designed for semi-permanent to permanent installation and are often larger, heavier, and more cumbersome than traditional backpacking or camping tents—making them unnecessary extra weight (and work) on a hiking trip. That said, Danchel Outdoors does make a 24 lb yurt tent that is considered “lightweight” for glamping tents, so if you must, try that.
