6 Reasons Why You Need to Try Glamping This Summer

Updated: Jan 18

Is camping good for you? What about glamping? If you’ve never thought about glamping before, now is the time.


Whether it was one trip in your childhood or regular weekend escapes, chances are you have had at least one experience with camping. But have you ever considered or tried glamping?


Especially now, “the tonic of wildness,” stepping away from the media notifications, the daily overwhelm and time spent isolated at home - is one of the best ways to off-set the many challenges of the past few years.


Yet with cancelled vacation plans, and burnout - many of us would benefit from a simple, no-stress getaway. Glamping at Four Corners Algonquin is Algonquin Park camping at its simplest and easiest. Right next door to Algonquin Provincial Park on 90 acres deep in the Canadian Shield, you and your ‘bubble’ can experience the wellness benefits of camping without the set-up, gear, or common discomforts. From transparent bug-free dome bubble tents where you can stargaze all night, to prospector tents, bunkies and more, Four Corners Algonquin makes camping - well, glamping - easy, relaxing and accessible.


Here are 6 reasons why you should glamp at Four Corners Algonquin this year:



1. Glamping: No equipment or experience necessary

No tent? No sleeping bags? No problem! Whether

you’re a city person with no room to store camping gear, a busy young family who would rather not pitch tents and sleep on rocks, or just the type of person who enjoys a blend of comfort and the outdoors, we have the glamping option for you. Choose from a variety of tents and experiences that suit your needs and preferences. We’ll even deliver the firewood, pillows and boardgames right to your site.




2. Accessible camping options in Algonquin

“Accessibility” means different things to different people. At Four Corners Algonquin, accessibility means glamping with us is:

  • Affordable - We have priced our nightly rates at almost 30% lower than our competitors to provide a budget friendly experience to our guests

3. Reduce stress, depression and fatigue

Lockdown has taught us the value of being outdoors. If you’re one of the 52% of Canadians experiencing physical or mental health impacts as a result of the pandemic, a weekend spent glamping can support your journey to improved wellbeing.


Getting out in nature, breathing fresh air, changing your routine and experiencing a new environment are all methods to improve mental and physical wellbeing. Scientists are still trying to understand just how this works, but the more we learn the more we are certain that time spent outside is beneficial for the mind, body and soul. A visit to Four Corners Algonquin can help you reduce symptoms of stress, depression and fatigue. As we like to say, we can help you “glamp it off.”



4. Experience Algonquin Park

Have you ever witnessed a moose crossing a lake? Slept under the awe-inspiring Northern Lights? What about crackling campfires with your kids? Experience all that Algonquin Park has to offer (with the comforts you’re looking for). We’ll provide you with a free park pass so you can hike, rest, breathe, connect with wildlife and truly reset.



5. Glamp Your Way to Quality time

Spend quality time with your family or friends outside the city limits. Physical distancing is built-in to camping experiences making it among the safer covid activities you can enjoy this summer. Get away from home, screen time and to-do lists, and settle in with a board game, a book, and stories around a campfire. The best part is, you won’t have to set up a tent or remember to pack your games – we have everything you need to help you get back to basics.





6. Support Regenerative Tourism with Sustainable Glamping


We’re off the grid, socially responsible and net-zero energy, which means we produce the energy we consume on-site. Sustainability isn’t a gimmick at Four Corners Algonquin - it’s who we are. We’re doing our part to keep Algonquin beautiful and accessible for generations to come. Experience what it’s like to live off the grid for a while.
