I’m willing to bet that my mom unintentionally started the term “Glamping”. I say this because when we were loading my family’s 1964 Ford Econoline van to go camping, my mom insisted on bringing some of the luxuries of life. A little television, a VCR (since getting a signal in the hills might be difficult), and, believe it or not… an oscillating fan. My brother and I would always joke about how mom would plug it into a tree. My dad was tech-savvy, and jimmy rigged extra car batteries with outlets so my mom could “Glamp” in style. Early 80’s style, but still style.

Glamping is more of a common practice in today’s world. The levels of glamp vary. Some people need Wi-Fi along with their escapism. Others may require a working toilet inside their tent. Whether you head to a resort-style spot with your RV that has more hotspots than the sun, or a log cabin with a fireplace that you can light by clapping your hands, you might want to check out these spots in Oregon.
