Heard of glamping? It’s upscale camping, with ready access to comfortable, occasionally 5-star amenities. Sure, you could stay another few nights in your trusty RV (or put up your frayed nylon tent in the dark), but why would you when the Dallas-Fort Worth area offers glamping destinations that will make you feel like a VIP? Enjoy the great Texas outdoors from your cozy perch in a bell tent, a breezy yurt, an airy treehouse, or a decked-out vintage Airstream with a/c and views for miles. We’re warning you, though: Glamping in the Dallas-Fort Worth area might just woo you away from your old-school outdoor adventures for good. 

Here are our top picks for glamping with your RV crew near the Dallas-Fort Worth metro area:

The Range Vintage Trailer Resort, Bristol, TX (30 mins SE of Dallas, 59 mins from Fort Worth)

The Range Vintage Trailer Resort owners are Airstream aficionados who want to create an eco-friendly haven for others to enjoy vintage trailer life. Just a 30-minute drive from Dallas, the Range is tucked into stunning wildflower country. Guests can soak up 30 acres of rolling countryside in their choice of vintage trailer. Guests can also rent open sites for their own Airstreams or vintage trailers (but be sure to check with the owners on size and space restrictions). 

 

From the 1953 Boles Aero all the way up to the 2016 Airstream, there’s definitely a glamping situation here to please anyone looking to immerse themselves in vintage vibes. The trailers are spread out over the sprawling property, so no other site is closer than 100 feet. Each one includes a deck with a Weber charcoal grill, a custom, handmade table and benches, pretty string lights, a hammock, and a propane fire pit. Guests are also allowed to use the private entrance to the owners’ hiking trails.

Paradise Cove at Lake Grapevine, Southlake, TX (30 mins NW of Dallas, 28 mins from Fort Worth)

 

Is a yurt on your bucket list? You’d be surprised how many guests at the Paradise Cove have been dreaming of a yurt stay. Choose a yurt or a safari-style tent (but remember, the yurts are definitely more glam, each with a private bathroom, a/c, queen bed, nice linens, real furniture, dining area, refrigerator, and a slew of games). Tents include a bed and linens, but bathrooms are located separately. 

 

Either way, you’ll love peaceful evenings by Lake Grapevine, toasting marshmallows by your very own fire pit and grill. The lake is famously home to fantastic fishing, kayaking, swimming, and stand-up paddleboarding. Dreaming of a gazebo wedding? Paradise Cove hosts quite a few glamping-themed weddings at the resort if you’ve got any lovebirds on board.

 

Purdon Groves, Purdon, TX (1 hr 15 mins south of Dallas, 1 hr 27 mins from Fort Worth)

 

Three open-air glamping tents (the Magical Bell, the Farmstay Getaway, and the Sagebrush) and one adorable tiny house/skoolie on wheels (the Supertramp) await weary guests at Purdon Groves. Each tent has a private deck (nature sounds are free) and cozy beds (size varies by tent). Bathrooms and free parking are close to the tents for easy access. 

 

Huge oak trees provide a majestic backdrop to your glamping retreat, and the serene catch-and-release pond is a favorite of those who travel with their rods. The owners delight in showing folks around their farm. They’re also happy to allow groups larger than four people to stay, but you’ll have to bring your own mattresses and linens for overflow friends and family (maximum occupancy is six, but the owners might bend on that if you’re real polite). Historic Corsicana is nearby, too, if you’re hankering for a meal and some shopping. You can also opt for extras like continental breakfast, coffee, grazing boxes, firewood, and s’mores fixings. The hosts are also happy to arrange personalized chef-cooked meals at an extra cost. Bonus: there’s very little light pollution, so you might catch a shooting star or ten.

Casa Estiva, Weatherford, TX (1 hr 20 mins west of Dallas, 30 mins from Fort Worth) 

 

Listed as one of the “most loved homes” on Airbnb, the Casa Estiva is a breathtaking nature retreat with irresistible accommodations. The hosts describe it as “an inverted treehouse” — you’ll descend 14 feet into your picture-perfect perch on stilts, situated in a ravine in a thick oak forest. Songbirds and crickets and frogs and other nature are the only sounds you’ll hear from your secluded den. 

 

There’s a bedroom with super-high ceilings, streaming TV, and relaxing chairs, as well as a covered area with an outdoor table and chairs, sofa, heater, and outdoor TV. You can bring along food to microwave or grill (grill provided, but bring charcoal) or enjoy dining in nearby Weatherford. Gotta work? No problem: The hosts provide great wifi for digital nomads. And speaking of the hosts, they sure love to pamper their guests. Expect delicious homemade goodies and fresh eggs from their chickens.

 

Magical Treehouse with Slide by Brazos River, Weatherford, TX (1 hr 20 mins west of Dallas, 30 mins from Fort Worth) 

 

“A Fairy Tale Adventure,” according to Fort Worth Magazine, this 15-foot-high lodging location is unique in many ways! Not only does the treehouse have a slide, which is an immediate selling point for kids, but there’s also a hot tub, which is an immediate selling point for adults. This magical treehouse takes family fun to whole new heights—pun intended! These wooded digs are on the fancier side of glamping, so if four walls, comfy furniture, and indoor amenities are your thing, this is the spot for you. Three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a full kitchen are perfect for individuals or groups. You’re also a short drive to the river, making it easy to use the complimentary kayaks and tubes for some waterside fun. 

 

Some of the most out-of-the-ordinary aspects of the Magical Treehouse are the furry friends on the property. Glampers are invited to meet Dennis the donkey and Dolly Llama and visit the hen house where you can harvest farm fresh eggs. There are even more kid-friendly activities like rock painting and a petrified wood laboratory. For the more adventurous of the bunch, there is axe throwing in the barn! 

Cross Timbers Glamping Company, Mineral Wells, TX (1 hr 24 mins from Dallas, 1 hr west of Fort Worth)

At Cross Timbers, you can choose from three yurts or a covered wagon if you’re feeling Western. Ascend into a massive, wood-framed yurt that’s tucked into live oaks, and relax on an up-high deck overlooking the valley. There’s a plush queen bed, a private bathroom, and a fully equipped kitchen. But you might just forget to eat when you get hypnotized by the beautiful surroundings. Above the bed, there’s a dome window (say hi to the skies and stars), and if you really, really need it, there’s wifi too. Got a big RV crew (or caravan)? There are two houses for rent on the property as well, making this a fun choice for a family reunion.

 

Savannah’s Meadow Treehouse B&B, Celeste, TX (1 hr 25 mins NE of Dallas, 1 hr 29 mins from Fort Worth)

 

Savannah’s Meadow is a magical bed and breakfast in Celeste (the breakfast arrives in the form of eggs, oatmeal, and coffee you can cook yourself). The property is surrounded by gorgeous lavender fields that are perfect for small weddings or vow renewals, lovely woods, and a few friendly animals (say hi to Simon, the donkey). 

 

There are two treehouses for glampers — Bare Creek Hollow and Majestic Oaks. Both are perched two or three stories above the beautiful property and have kitchens, baths, living areas, and bedrooms. There are private decks and balconies in the treehouses, too — perfect for stargazing. The Majestic Oaks even has a crow’s nest with three twin beds for the younger stargazers in your crew. The beds are super comfy, and guests also enjoy the use of a private pool and hot tub. Bring along your fishing gear and try your luck in the stocked pond. And, if you become addicted to the smell of lavender, the owners offer amazing homemade lavender products in their onsite shop.
