When you think about camping, you might be assaulted by memories of summer vacations spent fighting with your siblings and warding off bugs. Banish those images. Guerneville's AutoCamp will make you rethink camping with its shiny Airstreams and luxe canvas tents and design-y clubhouse-slash-general store that stocks wine, beer, snacks and camping essentials. By day you can romp around the redwood forest, canoe the Russian River, play lawn games and have a picnic in the meadow. By night you can unwind around a fire pit and sleep on comfy Casper mattresses (the Airstreams even have walk-in showers). This glamping excursion will make up for many a childhood trip spent in sleeping bags.


A glampground in the redwoods with Airstream trailers and canvas tents.
You like being in nature. But you also like a plush bed (and Wi-Fi, okay?).
