Looking for some unique outdoor lodging? Try some of these tipis & glamping trips.

Organized glamping trips feature all of the exposure to the great outdoors as traditional camping trips without the bugs, wild animals, sudden storms, leaking tents, smelly sleeping bags, and questionable food. Despite being outdoors, they come with awesome amenities such as tents rigged for electric power. That means occupants can operate appliances, reading lamps, and climate controls. People may sleep on full-size or regular-spring air mattresses. The tents or tipis are like stand-alone rooms with canvas walls and ceilings, hardwood floors, and made-up beds with heated mattress pads.

If you can’t find something of interest here, then look at our cabins, safari tents, vintage caravans, tiny houses, railroad cars, yurts, treehouses, and eco domes for other unique glamping options.

Tee Pee Motel and RV Park in Wharton, Texas

Wharton tipi

This tipi motel was originally built in 1942 and operated for 40 years. That is, until the highway system rerouted travelers. In 2006, Tee Pee Motel and RV Park reopened by new owners who brought the property back to life with a lot of charm. The teepees feature picnic tables, grills, and firepits for roasting marshmallows. They have full-size and queen-size beds.

Round Top Tip & Glamping Trips

Rancho Pillow

Rancho Pillow in Southeast Texas has been an artistic adventure for owner and designer Sheila Youngblood. An air-conditioned, king-sized dreamland, the teepee is a favorite for guests. With hand-painted imagery of the Four Elements tattooed on the sheet-rocked walls, this is truly a secret, sacred place for a good night’s slumber. And the Rancho PIllow bathhouse is just a few steps away.

The wide open spaces at Rancho Pillow provide both fun and relaxation for everyone.
