Driving and setting up an RV is 100% the worst part about RV camping. Enter Autocamp, a glamping company offering a hassle-free RV experience in some of the country’s most beautiful locales.

Accommodations differ depending on the location. But for this story, we’ll zero in on what the Joshua Tree Autocamp site offers.

We’ll start with the Airstreams, each of which offers 31 feet of classic road-trip experience (except you didn’t have to drive it there!). Or, bother with securing a campground reservation or place to park.

Each airstream sleeps three adults, or two adults and two children (this varies by location, but expect Autocamp accommodations to sleep two to five guests). There’s heat and AC (important in Joshua Tree!), and, per the Autocamp website, the linens have high thread counts. (Hello, glamping!)

Speaking of which, the bathrooms in these bad boys are not your standard RV setups. Autocamp calls them “spa-inspired,” and each one includes a “walk-in rain shower and spacious vanity area.”

Outside the Airstream, kick back on the private patio — complete with fire pit and dining area.

Much More Than Just Camping

If Airstreams aren’t your thing, Autocamp also offers standalone buildings they call “X Suites.” Think KOA but with extra-fancy sauce. As the name implies, X Suites offer more space for families, couples, or large group retreats. These snazzy digs include a living area and full kitchen, in addition to the kitchenettes in the Airstreams. Finally, Autocamp offers ADA-accessible suites as well — something many “glampsites” aren’t set up for.

You want complimentary Wi-Fi, coffee, and tea? You got it. How about a shared hybrid spa/plunge pool? Check. Complimentary mountain bikes for tooling around on the property? Say no more.

As far as food is concerned, feel free to do all your cooking in your Airstream. But if you feel like pampering yourself, you can zip over to the Kitchen & General store at the Joshua Tree, Cape Cod, Yosemite, and Zion locations, where “local chefs who focus on organic and sustainable ingredients” will prepare food from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Each AutoCamp location that offers dining facilities also offers perks like takeaway grill kits for your private campfire areas and daily happy hours.

Each Autocamp location also offers “experiences” tailored to the opportunities in those areas. For instance, at the Joshua Tree location, you can stargaze with an astronomer (free!) or go on a guided morning hike complete with backcountry espresso ($120/person). At Yosemite, you can enjoy guided climbing, yoga, and nature therapy.

As for those other locations, they include Asheville, Cape Cod, the Catskills, the Russian River, and locations outside of Yosemite and Zion national parks. Autocamp locations are also planned for Sequoia National Park and Texas Hill Country in 2024.

Interested? Bounce to Autocamp’s website and begin by selecting your location. (You can even book AutoCamp on Hipcamp now too!) Once you’re there, a handy booking tool will help you check availability and lock in a date. Note that you can’t bring your own tents or RVs to Autocamp’s spaces — you’ve got to use their facilities.

But hey, chances are they’re nicer than anything you’ve got.
