Elk Mountain Tents
Elk Mountain Tents has two excellent options when it comes to glamping. Both their Canvas Wall Tent and their Yukon Bell Tent are very high-quality and not too expensive. Prices for the wall tents range from $795-1245 and prices for the bell tents range from $600-750. The canvas material that these tents are made of isn’t like traditional cotton canvas but is polyester-based allowing it to be more waterproof and avoid condensation issues. This is also helped with reinforced seams. This material is also much stronger and sturdier than cotton canvas, making it less likely to tear or break. This durability is increased by multi-layered canvas in the corners and wherever the material comes into contact with the poles. Elk Mountain Tents are sure to last you a long time, as unlike most canvas tents, they are resistant to mold, rot, and mildew. These tents are only made better by including a stove jack and room for a wood stove. Having a wood stove to heat your tent during the night and cook delicious gourmet food is one of the best ways to enjoy glamping. The best part is, when you order one from Elk Mountain’s website, it ships for free. All of Elk Mountain’s tents feature large doors, so it won’t be much of a hassle to get a mattress, chairs, a table, or whatever other furniture you would like inside. The tents have plenty of room for several people to lay down and stand up straight in and come in several different sizes. The wall tents are available in 13 x 13, 13 x 16, and 13 x 20 ft. sizes and the bell tents are available in 13 ft. diameter and 16 ft. diameter options.
Other Tent Options
Another popular option in the realm of bell tents is the White Duck Outdoors Premium Canvas Bell Tent, available for $800. The rounded floor and vertical walls offer plenty of room to move around inside the tent and place furniture wherever you would like. Feel free to bring along a queen-size mattress, a couple of side tables, and a few chairs, and they should all be able to fit inside with ease. There is even room in the tent for a convenient mudroom, so you don’t need to worry about mud trailing through the sleeping area.The material is heavy, and the zipped-in groundsheet is thick and durable, which keeps you dry, clean, and cool, no matter what time of year you go camping. There are three options, all of which are sizable enough to live in luxury, so whether you opt for the 13 ft., 16 ft., or 20 ft. diameter, you will not be disappointed!
For just $750, one of the least expensive glamping options (while still extremely high-quality) is the Canvas Camp Patrol Deluxe Tent. The tent’s cotton material is made to be waterproof and breathable, and its design (which is very similar to old-style military tents) is sturdy and durable enough to weather any storms that come your way. It includes 4 doors, all with mesh windows that allow a cool breeze to travel through during the night. The tent also comes with a groundsheet that is tough enough to withstand whatever weather comes your way.
Less Expensive Tents
Another less expensive option is the Nemo Wagontop. There’s no fluff with this option. Every inch of the tent has a purpose and its design was extremely well-planned. All four walls include a large mesh screen window for constant airflow. Inside of the tent is a convenient removable vestibule that offers storage for your gear as well as protection from the weather. The ceiling of the tent is high enough for even the tallest campers to stand up straight in, and you will find that 2 or even 3 people can be very comfortable inside the tent. Setup is also simply designed to remove the frustrations that often come from trying to pitch a large tent. It has a single-walled construction (no rainfly required) and it has two central poles that pop the tent up with ease.
If you want a high-quality tent but don’t want to break the bank, consider purchasing the Big Agnes Big House 6 Deluxe tent, which is available for $400. While it is a 6-person tent, for it to be ideal for glamping you may want to limit it to 2-4 people so you can have plenty of room for all the things you want to bring and you won’t feel cramped. For how spacious it is, it is remarkably sturdy and sure to withstand many strong winds that might come your way, with strong aluminum poles, a waterproof floor, double-walled design with a reliable rainfly, and adjustable guylines. With a ceiling height of 68 inches, there is a lot of room to move around comfortably and sit up straight in your bed. Other details that make this tent stand out among other tents its size are the fold-out welcome mat, front vestibule, and 12 interior pockets for convenient storage.
Though you’ll find that it isn’t quite as high-quality as a lot of other tents listed here, the Ozark Trail 14-person 4-room base camp tent is the thing to buy if you are all about space. This tent can divide into 4 separate rooms, all of which are large enough to fit several people inside. If you anticipate rough weather, this might be the tent to use, since there is enough room to stretch out and use different rooms inside for different purposes.

One fancy option is the Lotus Belle 16-foot Outback Deluxe Camping Tent. Just from looking at this tent, you can tell that it is intended for a more luxurious camping experience. It’s 16 x 16 ft. size makes it perfect for a large group to go glamping in. There is enough room to fit 6 twin-sized mattresses inside.

Though it is definitely on the more expensive end when it comes to glamping tents at $2,700, if you want as much comfort as possible and plan on using it often, it is worth the investment!
A very unique design that offers an excellent night’s sleep is The Cave from Heimplanet. This is a 3-person tent (but maybe better limited to 2 for glamping purposes) and offers plenty of room with almost vertical walls and a very wide floor. The Cave is so named because the material it is made of is designed to keep light from creeping inside during the daytime. If you love the idea of sleeping in late during your glamping adventure, then this might be the tent for you! The other thing that makes The Cave ideal for glamping is that it sets itself up. No fumbling with poles required. Just take the tent out of the bag, attach the pump, and watch it inflate. The whole process takes less than a minute!
