The Dyrt Honors Top 10 Glamping Destinations in the US

The Dyrt announced the winners of its 2024 Glampy Awards. Now in its third year, the Glampys recognize and honor the most unique and innovative glampground destinations throughout the United States.

Glamping may have started out as niche, but it has quickly gained momentum as a fast-growing segment of the camping industry. According to The Dyrt’s 2024 Camping Report presented by the All-New Toyota Tacoma, 26% of private camping properties surveyed said they now offer glamping.

“My favorite part about the rise in the popularity of glamping is the creativity,” said Sarah Smith, founder of The Dyrt. “Glamping is growing every year and rapidly evolving to take so many forms — Airstreams, domes, pods, cocoons, fire towers, covered wagons, cabooses. Spending time in nature is always rewarding, but glamping adds another dimension of fun and originality.”

For the second consecutive year, a property in Texas tops the list of Glampy Award winners. Loving Heart Retreats offers domes in Texas Hill Country a little over an hour outside of Austin. The next spot on this year’s list is Salmon Gypsy Bed & Breakfast, a custom-built wagon on the Salmon River in Idaho.

Nominated by The Dyrt’s camping community and awarded on a subjective basis, the winning glampsites were chosen for overall glampiness, originality and Instagram-ability. Availability was also a necessary criteria. Previous Glampys winners weren’t considered.
