If you like a little more pampered approach to the outdoors but don’t have an RV, consider “glamping” (glamorous camping). These two locations are affordable, fun and ready to treat you right.
North Lawrence, Ohio: Clay’s Park Resort You’ll find Amish-made queen-size beds, a day bed and bunk beds atop wood platforms in the glamping tents overlooking the lake at this pastoral campground 50 miles south of Cleveland. Guests rent golf carts to zip to the restaurant and water park and activities. Big-name country music concerts (Darius Rucker and Lady Antebellum in 2013) fill an outdoor amphitheater. From $126.

Nehawka, Nebraska: Slattery Vintage Estates (pictured) Sip wine, dine on wood-fired pizzas and listen to live music under a big sky 35 miles south of Omaha, then retire to room-size tents with comfy beds and amenities you’d see at a country B&B. You’ll wake up to see ducks, deer, turkeys and eagles and enjoy a three-course breakfast in the wine-tasting room. From $65. See Midwest Living's review. (402) 267-5267; svevineyards.com
