Good news, glampers: The high-end Airstream experience is coming to Joshua Tree, Zion National Park, and the Catskills. AutoCamp, the outdoor lodging brand that’s quickly become a favorite among outdoor adventurers who still like a little luxury, recently announced its plans to open three new properties later this year and in 2022. These locations will join the existing glampsites in Northern California’s Russian River, Yosemite National Park, and Cape Cod.
Coming this fall, the 25-acre Joshua Tree property will be the first to open with 47 Airstreams and the company’s first-ever outdoor bar, mobile kitchen, and joint hot tub and plunge pool, alongside various wellness experiences. Excursions within the national park are, of course, also available to guests, who can feel as good about where they’re spending their downtime given the brand’s commitment to sustainability and respect for the area’s cultural heritage.
Designed with environmentally conscious features like solar panels, low-use-water plants, dark-sky-compliant lighting, and an on-site water treatment system, AutoCamp Joshua Tree will also come with a common area modeled on a traditional Quonset hut and decorated with artworks by local artists. Says CEO and Founder Neil Dipaola of the new expansions, “[They continue] to fulfill AutoCamp’s mission that is centered around creating a deeper appreciation for the outdoors through meaningful exploration and memorable adventures, all the while preserving the integrity and cultural significance of each destination.”
Glampers will have to wait a little longer to enjoy AutoCamp Zion National Park, slated to open in the spring of 2022, and the Catskills site. But if the reviews for the Russian River, Yosemite, and Cape Cod properties are anything to go by, we’re pretty sure they’re gonna be epic.
