In recent years, luxury camping retreats have been gaining popularity, and in this perpetually hurried society it’s not hard to see why. All of us have that explorer buried somewhere inside of us that aches to connect with nature, and sometimes a resort, no matter how remote, doesn’t give you that feeling of really being in the wild. Just because we heed the call doesn’t mean we have to be completely uncivilized about how we choose to do so.
