  • Glampout in Montana

    HEY THERE, GLAMPING GIRLS!! We are less than a month away from the glampout my daughter and I are hosting at her farm in Geraldine, Montana. June 6th, 7th and 8th! I’d love, love, love to see a bunch of glampers on the place! We have 110 acres of prairie and gorgeous mountains to the south and west. Central Montana is heaven on earth in June!

    We are planning a meet & greet/bonfire Friday night. Exploring, antiquing and potluck Saturday. It will be a mostly dry camping experience, but there is water and power fairly handy if needed. I also have an adorable bunkhouse that sleeps four, for those without their own glamper.

    If you are putting our glampout on your calendar, PLEASE let us know! I’d love to be able to plan and prepare as well as possible! Email Barb at prairiebarbie@gmail.com. Thanks!

    There is also lots of info about the farm at www.prairie-mom.blogspot.com and www.prairiebarbie.com.

  • Dunes Glamping Weekend

    • When: June 6–8, 2014
    • Where: Indiana Dunes State Park, Chesterton, Indiana
    • Contact: Brad Bumgardner at Bbumgardner@dnr.in.gov

    Indiana Dunes State Park will offer another special themed weekend to explore the natural and cultural resources in the dunes from a woman’s perspective June 6–8.

    Programs will focus on important women in dunes history, arts and crafts, a camping recipe exchange, and other activities. Additionally, park naturalists will be on hand throughout the weekend to highlight ways to commune with the great outdoors while enjoying the comforts at home.

    The weekend coincides with National Glamping Weekend, a special weekend that celebrates luxury camping, and the ability to experience the great outdoors with many of the advanced amenities we have come to depend on in our daily lives.

    “The nice thing about glamping is it allows folks that don’t want to rough it the opportunity to enjoy the semi-wild and appreciate the resources of a place like the dunes,” said Jessica Rosier, park interpretive naturalist.
