San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) July 31, 2013
More than 40 million people in the U.S. went camping last year, but that statistic means something very different nowadays than it did just 10 years ago.
The entire definition of camping has changed over the past decade, and although traditional campers might scoff at that statement, it is nevertheless the truth. Studies show that “camping” now incorporates more than just a pitched tent on a patch of ground in a State Park. According to the 2012 American Camper Report, RV’s, cabins, tree houses, and other unique outdoor quarters can now be found under the same umbrella as traditional camping.
Glamping Hub offers hundreds of unique accommodations, the majority of which incorporate a level of luxury and amenities that separates them from traditional camping, but the platform also now has 185 glamping sites that offer both luxury and traditional camping side by side. This milestone number has been reached with the addition of dozens of sites managed by Kamgrounds of America. KOA, who has long been a major proponent and purveyor of traditional camping space all over North America, now offers teepees, Airstreams, tree houses, yurts, cabooses, and deluxe cabins, through Glamping Hub and their own website, with amenities like air conditioning, flat screen TV’s, WiFi, and places to plug in small appliances like hair dryers, iPod docks and cell phones.
Swinging cabin doors, kitchenettes and wood burning stoves right next door to crackling, hotdog-laden cook fires and hastily erected nylon domes? Can these different worlds and their inhabitants exist in harmony? Glamping Hub, the world’s largest booking platform for glamping around the globe, says yes, and plans to be a take a big bite out of the 143 billion dollar “camping” industry.
More than 80% of campers venture into the wild, not just for the lodging, but also for the innumerable outdoor activities. So whether the walls of the shelter are solid wood, shiny Airstream silver, or pulled tight over a frame and staked to the ground, the exhilaration that accompanies adventure, exploration and discovery is present and accounted for. It could take time for traditional campers and glampers to shake hands and admit that their objectives and sentiments are the same, but they can’t deny they are both active contributors to the $646 billion industry goliath that is outdoor recreation. And Glamping Hub’s growing catalog of alternative accommodations is helping to accelerate this realization.
