Glamping - short for “glamorous camping” - has surged into the spotlight in recent years as more and more people are looking to enjoy the outdoors without having to renounce the luxuries we’re so used to in our everyday lives. And so glamping breaks into the scene combining the desire for adventure with the need for a comfortable, relaxing holiday. Located in the southeastern state of Georgia and at the edge of Chattahoochee National Forest, Ellijay might not be glamourous in its own right, yet it offers many glamping opportunities. Surrounded by forested land, inhabited by less than 2000 souls and far from the big city of Atlanta, this small town is an ideal spot to launch your first “glamorous” outdoor adventure in search of quietude and inspiration. Read on to learn more about the top eight glamping spots near Ellijay, Georgia.

1. A futuristic-looking domed tent near Carters Lake (from USD 159)

A short five-minute drive from the unusually irregularly shaped Carters Lake, this property is popular among glampers. Its white domed tent, set on an elevated wooden deck, has all the comforts you need without taking away from your camping experience. Offering one queen-sized bed and two single beds, the spacious tent can accommodate up to four guests. It’s equipped with all the bedding essentials, as well as toiletries, kitchenware, basic condiments, a stove and a coffee maker to make you feel right at home. However, in perfect camping style, the bathroom, shower and tub are located outside on the deck. You’ll also have a barbecue area and plenty of pastures and forests to explore on bike or on foot.

6. A spartan tent with access to a game room, pool and hot tub

The best thing about this property is that you’ll have the opportunity to live the real camping experience with your family, inside a simple, house-shaped tent with an inflatable mattress whilst being a short walk from all the comforts of a hotel. If you visit with kids, they will surely adore the game room complete with a bowling lane and, if they’re the adventurous type, they’ll get to show their canoeing skills down at the lake. The parents, meanwhile, can relax in the pool or hot tub before cooking a meal over the fire pit, just outside the tent.

7. A spacious tent by a creek for a true camping experience

The hosts provide essential toiletries and cooking basics and there’s an outhouse just a few metres away from the tent. Other than that, be ready to live an authentic camping experience with your family. No electricity on site means you’ll have to turn your attention elsewhere rather than your phone screen. And you have a plethora of possibilities: relax on the hammock, immerse yourself in a book by the stream, fire up the charcoal grill, go kayaking or gather round the fire pit at night. Everything you’ve ever imagined camping life to be, you can have it here!
