Our Best-Kept Secret for Someone Who Loves Nature but Hates Roughing It

Here at The Everygirl, we’re separated into two groups: the campers and the glampers. Leading the glamping pack with honor and pride is Ally, our Chief of Sales who likes to classify herself as a “bougie outdoorswoman” AKA she loves spending time outside but doesn’t consider roughing it a vacation. Long walks to communal bathrooms, sleeping on the hard ground, and spending way too much money on camping supplies she’ll never use again? Couldn’t be her. But a weekend spent in nature with real beds, private bathrooms, and A.C.? Sign her up.

Ally has perfected her glamping skills over the years—including finding the ultimate hidden gem for a weekend getaway: AutoCamp. As Ally puts it, “AutoCamp strikes the perfect balance between camping and staying at a boutique hotel.” You can get all the comforts of staying at a 5-star hotel (hello, 24/7 concierge service) but with all of the perks of being out in the great outdoors—without packing the toilet paper. If you’re in the glamper camp too, we’ve got your next solo trip, girls’ weekend, or romantic getaway planned. Here’s why Ally is already booking her next stay:

 

Ally’s Favorite AutoCamp Features

 

Luxurious Accommodations

Each AutoCamp location offers a range of unique stays—from high-end Airstreams to gorgeous cabin suites. Ally, being the Sharpay Evans of camping that she is, booked a Classic Airstream for a quick getaway with her husband in Cape Cod. When she pulled up to the property, she immediately noticed the cozy outdoor space—two large Adirondack chairs by a private campfire with a BBQ grill and a picnic-style table with two benches. 

Inside, the Airstream itself is large with a private bedroom with blackout curtains, a modern kitchen with a mini-fridge and microwave, many convenient outlets, a TV, and a cozy bed that’s 5-star hotel quality. One of her favorite features was the spa-inspired bathroom, “It was so charming and modern (and 1000x better than any campsite bathroom I’ve ever seen). The walls were tiled in marble and the toilet and sink were all full-size—my husband even commented that the bathroom was both larger and nicer than our primary bath at home!” The finishing touch for Ally was the decor: “no detail was spared down to the chic books in each room.” If you’re looking for a luxury getaway without the luxury price tag, this is it and for a limited time, you can get 20% off your stay with code EVERYGIRL, so now is the perfect time to book.

Cleanliness & Safety

Two of the biggest turnoffs to traditional camping are 1) littered and dirty campsites that haven’t been cleaned in what looks like 10 years and 2) the risk of running into wildlife while you’re gathering wood for a bonfire. Thankfully, glamping at AutoCamp limits these headaches. Ally was impressed with how pristine the property was: “Housekeeping and maintenance staff can be seen riding on golf carts all over the property maintaining the space and it shows. I did not see a single piece of trash and the campsite itself was very manicured.”

Plus, at check-in, you are set up with a direct line to contact the 24/7 on-site concierge with any issues you may have during your stay (so you don’t have to lift a finger—or run into a bear—while preparing for a campfire). Ally needed an extra fire starter so she texted the concierge and they sent maintenance immediately to help her out: “I love this feature if you are traveling solo, with a group of girls, or just want peace of mind that help is available whenever you need it. I felt safe knowing they were there overnight.”

 

The property was beautiful, peaceful, and luxurious creating the perfect way to unplug and enjoy the outdoors.

 

Incredible Destinations

AutoCamp has six incredible locations you can visit—from Cape Cod to Joshua Tree—and all of the properties are situated in a way to best enjoy that destination. Ally was a 10-minute bike ride from the town of Falmouth and an incredible beach and other classic Cape Cod sights were just a few minutes away by car. She mentioned that the location was one of the largest perks of staying there: “AutoCamp allows you a unique way to experience some of the country’s most beautiful outdoor destinations that you wouldn’t otherwise experience when staying at a hotel. Relaxing outside and enjoying the vehicle- and light-free campground with a glass of wine in hand was a great way to connect with my partner and unwind.”

On-Site Experiences

Days off the grid can feel a little monotonous: breakfast, hike, lunch, swimming, dinner, bonfire, sleep, repeat. After 3 days of the same old same old, you’re ready to hit the road and head back home. AutoCamp offers an abundance of on-site experiences so you don’t even need to leave the property (or consider heading back home early). From taking a long bike ride, listening to live music while sipping on a glass of wine, or trying out a yoga or craft class at the community clubhouse, there’s so much to explore beyond the beautiful sites around you. Ally and her husband took full advantage of the complimentary bikes and games during their stay, “They were a great way to enjoy the property without bringing our own entertainment…yay for packing less.” She wishes she had time for more—especially trying out the fresh Oyster bar.

 

The question isn’t if I book another trip to AutoCamp, it is when and where.
