Sometimes you need a quick getaway to clear your head or maybe just for a change of scenery. Then there are the times when you and your peeps jump in the car for no reason at all; except to have a fun time and experience something new (insert the Urban Swank girls here)! That’s what happened recently when we set out on our first glamping adventure.

For those that aren’t quite sure if that was a typo and we meant camping, you would be incorrect! Glamping is the glamorous version of traditional camping, which offers deluxe accommodations and facilities.

Kayak’s-North Shore Park

For this first time adventure, we traveled to North Shore Park, an LCRA Park in Bastrop, Texas, which is located about 30 miles from Austin. We picked this location because they’ve recently added several Airstream Travel Trailers as lodging options. This park offers guest swimming, fishing, hiking, volleyball, camping (traditional and glamping), mountain biking, and so much more.

In addition to all the fun times we had laughing and relaxing on our very spacious crushed granite terrace (equipped with our own fire pit), we enjoyed grilling on our outdoor gas grill while the hanging lights set the vibe for what was a fantastic girls getaway. When it was time to head indoors we were steps away from our brand new 25’ Flying Cloud Airstream — and it did not disappoint.

If you want to glamp in style this is surely the way to go. Perfect for a group or family of 4, each Airstream camper comes with a queen bed and two twins. The “luxe” amenities continue from there with granite countertops, dual AC units, a private restroom with a shower, linens, towels, two TVs, DVD player, fridge, microwave, stovetop, cookware, dinnerware and a Keurig coffee maker! Need we say more? The only thing we needed to bring was any clothing (of course), food and drinks we wanted.

Another great thing is you can rent one Airstream or make it a party and rent all five. We had such a good time that we are already looking to visit again soon! FYI…Airstream rentals are $225 per night, require a two-night minimum stay, a $225 deposit and do not permit pets inside the campers.

Urban Swank did receive a complimentary stay but the opinions expressed are our own.
