Close your eyes. What is the first thing that comes to mind when you think of camping? Nature, tents, sleeping bags, lantern lighting, a technology-free zone? All the camping basics. Now, reimagine camping with all of that but add cozy beds, hot showers and electricity.

From cowboy ranches in Montana to hideouts in New York's Adirondack Mountains, these campsites offer a respite from chaotic everyday life with a touch of sophistication, grace and luxury.
