Whether you’re looking for a secluded romantic retreat in the woods or want to be right in the heart of the action with activities for all ages, Texas has something to offer glampers of all kinds.

Cypress Valley Treehouse – Spicewood, TX

This gem is located deep in central Texas, around a 30-minute drive west of Austin. It’s a great location as it’s just as close to outdoor adventure as it is shopping and fine dining that Austin provides.

But what sets this glampground apart from the others is the elegant and beautiful treehouses that adorn the property. It’s truly a magical experience.

Cypress Valley boasts five different treehouses ranging in size and amenities. If it’s just you and a loved one, you might go for something smaller like the Yoki, which sleeps 2-3 people. However, if you have a family or friends getaway, you might be interested in The Nest, which can sleep 4-6 people.

Regardless of which treehouse you choose, you’ll soon find out that the experience is like none other. That is why Cypress Valley tops our list of glamping destinations in the Lone Star State.

Another magical experience is the Skybox Cabins in Glen Rose, TX. This gorgeous property has 50 acres of pure Texas beauty.

Skybox has several elegantly decorated cabins throughout the live oak and cedar trees. They all boast incredible views and include all of the amenities you’d expect from a premium glamping resort. Comfort, luxury, and adventure; the Skybox Cabins have it all.

When you’re not lounging in the cabins, you’ll find there are endless things to do in and around Glen Rose. Start by exploring the historic Glen Rose town center, getting off the beaten path, and exploring outdoors at the Big Rocks Park, Dinosaur Valley State Park, or Fossil Rim Wildlife Center. Also, don’t forget there’s the Paluxy River or Wheeler Branch Park if you’re looking to enjoy a day or two on the water.

When you really want to glamp in Texas, this glamping destination has all of the options. Want to stay the night in an elevated cabin? Ever try glamping in a teepee? Maybe a treehouse is more your speed?

Whichever you choose, you’re sure to find luxury, glam, and paradise at the Geronimo Creek Retreat.

While you’ll never find accommodations like these anywhere else, you’re going to be equally amazed at everything the retreat has to offer. This is the perfect place to bring your entire family as there’s so much to do outdoors.

Grab a kayak and take a stroll across the creek. Hop onto one of the rope swings and make a splash. There are even paddleboards if you want to give that a shot. The creek is a place to make memories. And, because it’s spring-fed, it generally stays the same temperature throughout the year.

Lucky Arrow Retreat – Dripping Springs, TX

Located 20 miles west of Austin, Lucky Arrow delivers a rustic and chic glamping experience.

Choose to stay in one of the many private cabins or even yurt, either way, you’ll love the decor and comforts. They’re brilliantly decorated to give a warm and cozy feel while adding a rustic touch.

Are you planning an event with a full guestlist? Those are welcomed as well. Whether you want to bring together the team from work or have a significant life event on the horizon, such as a wedding, Lucky Arrow has the facilities to accommodate it.

Sure, you’re going to love the lodging and venue, but what makes Lucky Arrow stand out is the Arrow Excursions in their Land Rover. Take a tour of the wine country, steal some sips at local distilleries and breweries, or take in the scenery at Pedernales Falls and Milton Reimers Ranch. The tours are a lot of fun and give you the whole Dripping Springs experience.

It’s all about the little details at Sinya, where every comfort has been carefully considered and the decor expertly curated. It’ll be a memorable experience and perfect for an anniversary or birthday excursion.

There’s plenty to do as well. You may unwind all day in its peaceful solitude or take advantage of the hammock on the porch or a refreshing dip in one of the area’s swimming holes, such as Wimberley’s famous Blue Hole. Wimberley is known for its fabulous shopping, fine dining, and beverage options if you’re looking to get back to civilization.
