We have a variety of books, cards and board games located in each geodome.  Additionally, we have yard games scattered throughout the property (and marked on our property map).

While Glamping Wild guests have a Solos Brand stove on their deck for private use, we also have a larger in-ground communal firepit for our more social guests to enjoy.  So get out there and mingle with like-minded glampers if you’re so inclined. 

We have a communal hot tub in the same area as the communal fire pit.  So you can mingle in there as well!  Don’t forget your swimsuit!

Heard of geocaching?  Geocaching is similar to a hide and seek game, but you go in search of hidden treasure using GPS coordinates and clues.  We have tucked away some caches right on property for our guests, and there are also caches offsite and nearby for guests to find!

It can get breezy up in the Flatwoods, so we figured it was the perfect place for a few kites (and windchimes….) to fully embrace the magic of a breezy day!  We have a set of kites stored onsite for guests to enjoy!

There is nothing quite like enjoying a picnic beside the sound and beauty of flowing water.  There are a number of spots onsite where you can enjoy a picnic streamside.  If you have booked our Caim or Dochas tent, then you will enjoy a private set of stairs and sitting area beside the stream below your tent.  Additionally, we have three sitting areas along our wetland preserve walking path. Each geodome is equipped with a picnic basket for guest use.

One of the best things about our location is optimal conditions for stargazing!  For observing faint stars and meteors, the darker the sky, the better, and the amount of skyglow from light pollution diminishes as you venture farther outward from a population center.  Stargazing party, anyone?  

Experience one of our favorite features at Glamping Wild!  We designed a walking labyrinth inside our wetland preserve.  In case you’re not already familiar, labyrinths are used for walking meditation.  It is a single winding path that weaves in different directions throughout a circular space, and ultimately dead ends at the center.  Labyrinths are used worldwide as a way to quiet the mind, calm anxieties, recover balance in life, enhance creativity and encourage a meditative state, insight, self-refection and stress relief.  The practice of labyrinth walking integrates body, mind and spirit.  We hope you will set your best intention, and give it a whirl during your stay!  It’s a great enhancement to what you will already being doing at Glamping Wild….disconnecting from the day-to-day and reconnecting with nature, loved ones, and yourself.

We have an abundance of trails on property.  Put on your hiking boots, grab one of our walking sticks, and go explore our 40-acre property!  You’re welcome to stay at lower elevation, or if you’re feeling ambitious, climb to our top ridge (3,400′) and take a peek at the best view of Pond Mountain!

Our 40-acre property has an approximately 2.5-acre wetland preserve.  Inside the wetland preserve, you will find walking paths and streamside sitting areas, as well as our walking labyrinth.  We highly recommend picking a day during your stay to get lost in there!  Please be sure to stay on the designated walking paths and sitting areas at all times to preserve the fragile plant and animal ecosystem of the preserve.
