The city of San Jose is situated among Silicon Valley’s green hills and was named its unofficial capital. It is one of the most populated cities in the Golden State and the entire United States of America. San Jose is a vibrant destination for any traveler eager to explore its world-class attractions, festivals, nightlife, and a wide variety of cuisine. San Jose, and California in general, is also gifted with the beauty of nature as hundreds of rivers run through it, such as the Guadalupe River. Plus, you can indulge in nature at the scenic Alum Rock Park and Sierra Vista Open Space Preserve. This city has become a traveler’s favorite spot for camping since we can remember. As time goes on, the glamping trend has emerged, so check out these best glamping spots near San Jose, California.
If you, your partner, family members, or friends are vegetarian or vegan, this campsite on top of the Santa Cruz Mountains surrounded by redwoods will be a perfect fit for your glamping trip.

This luxurious dome offers the sensation of owning the whole forest to yourself, but with a comfy queen-size bed at your service. This rental is powered by Jackery 290 battery. You can also access a camp sink, toilet, and shower at your disposal. Moreover, the dome is fully sealed, but bugs might occasionally find their way inside, so you might want to bring bug repellant and a flashlight since city lights are not visible.

This site offers glamping and a spa in the redwoods by a mountain. They have private wood and canvas yurt with a queen-size bed, skylight, heater, and fridge, but there’s no kitchen. The unit has a detached bathroom and shared access to outdoor showers.
The private spa and sauna will cost you 100 USD for a two-hour session by reservation only but are closed on Mondays for maintenance. Moreover, this rental applies quiet hours from 10pm to 10am. Just be mindful and cautious as wild animals might enter the grounds, including coyotes and mountain lions.

This site near the Santa Cruz Mountains offers a spacious yurt with a queen-size bed, an additional mattress, sheets, and pillows. There is also a private detached modern bathroom. They also provide various amenities, including a small fridge and a toaster oven.
The host also commits to enhancing their cleaning process as a fee for it is included in your bills, so you don’t have to do any chores before check-out. On top of that, the site is also pet friendly. However, don’t leave your furry friends behind when you’re out of the premises. Additionally, this is an upscale facility, guaranteeing a different experience than modest camping.

This glamping tent offers cozy accommodation for a small group in a strategic spot. The tent is near the shared bathrooms with electrical outlets and an outdoor amphitheater. Note, though, that there is no electricity inside the tent. However, you’ll have a satisfying stay and can indulge in cycling, unwinding in the wildlife, discovering a waterfall and some creeks, hiking, and star gazing, all at an affordable price.

This campsite offers a private cozy safari-style canvas tent with a queen-size bed or bunk bed with beddings. You can also use the additional five-person pop-up dome tent if necessary. Additionally, they provide a platform behind the tent with a camp toilet and solar shower.
Pets are welcome, but it’s best to keep them inside during nighttime due to the wandering mountain lions and coyotes. The host encourages you to preserve nature and leave no trash behind upon check-out.
