The state of Alabama is gastronomically, culturally, and environmentally rich. It is a popular destination for glampers, campers, and hikers who troop in yearly to enjoy its beautiful outdoors. The state has five parks administered by National Park Services and four national forests, making it a real paradise for adventurous souls seeking thrilling encounters with nature. A better way to get the most out of Alabama would be to go camping in the wild. However, if camping sounds too basic and you still want to enjoy the outdoors without worrying about the heat, rain, mosquitoes, and other nuisances that nature can throw your way under a tent, then you should think of getting a yurt. With that said, read below for a brief look at some of the top yurts in Alabama, USA.

1. Luxurious yurt in the heart of Fort Morgan (from USD 69)

The tent is christened Crows Nest, and it is a bell yurt canvas tent located right at the heart of Fort Morgan. Inside the tent, you will find a queen bed, a single bed, TV with regular channels, beach bags, rags, and a table. Within the property, guests will have access to an outdoor shower, a swimming pool, free WiFi, and plenty of outdoor seating. From the tent’s location, the beach is just a few meters away and within a comfortable walking distance. For more fun, the property has kayak rentals, umbrella rentals, board games, cornhole games, and a Frisbee golf practice spot so that guests will never run out of fun activities.
