Increasing demand for VIP camping trend

Growing number of US luxury-camping providers

The paradoxical term “camping butler” is becoming more familiar to affluent travelers. As part of the experiential travel trend, more luxury “campsites” are meeting increased demand for this type of accommodation.
In the “great outdoors” in the US, tents with hardwood floors or cabins with more amenities than most upscale hotels are attracting guests. The properties run by the company Delaware North Cos include the Yellowstone Park Hotel and the Ahwahnee Hotel in Yosemite National Park.
Next month, it will debut a product it calls Explorer Cabins in West Yellowstone. The single-bedroom or two-bedroom cabins have flatscreen TVs and WiFi, and will cost two to four times the $75 rate charged at other cabins in the park. Agents will be paid commission for renting the cabins.
Other luxury-camping providers include El Capitan Canyon near Santa Barbara, California, and Resort at Paws Up in Montana, which has 30 luxury tents in five camps with Jacuzzis and butlers.
