Kentucky is a southeastern state in the United States of America. The state has the world’s largest cave system known as Mammoth Cave National Park, which serves as a major tourist attraction. It is also home to the horse industry, thanks to a species of grass known as Kentucky Bluegrass, which is found in many of its pastures. Hence, horse racing in Keeneland Fall and the Kentucky Derby are major events that people look forward to. Kentucky is also blessed with natural beauty. This consists of mountain ranges, lakes, forests, and rivers, and they make for great spots for glamping. If you’re planning a trip, read this specially curated list of the best glamping spots in Kentucky, USA, below, for an adventurous and unforgettable glamping experience in the vicinity of nature.

1. Renovated tiny home with a large deck (from USD 109)

This rental unit may be a 200-square-foot (18.58-square-meter) tiny house, but it is well equipped. Technically, there’s only one double bed inside, which can sleep two people, but if there’s a third guest, they can sleep on the futon. The kitchen is also adequately furnished, and once you’ve cooked your meals here, you can dine on the large deck. That way, you can enjoy the cool breeze while you’re eating.

If you don’t want to cook, restaurants are only a short drive away. Some of the attractions you might want to visit in your adventure are Kentucky Kingdom, Riverside Farnsley-Moremen Landing, and The Waverly Hills Sanatorium.
