Wyoming, Montana See Increase In Travelers And Glamping Demand

Glamping offers the comforts of luxury yurts, cabins, tents, RVs, and campers, as opposed to camping in the Wyoming wilderness and taking on the natural elements in the rough.

As fall continues and winter approaches, northern Wyoming and Montana glamping hotspots close following a bustling Labor Day weekend.

However, the end of the summer season doesn’t connote fewer tourists.

According to a report, Stacy Packard said that the Sheridan/Bighorn Mountains KOA had seen a surge in the number of travelers who visit at the end of the season.

The owner explained that the KOA has witnessed the number of campers increase during the summer through the fall. COVID-19’s restrictions have prompted people to travel frequently across the U.S.

The KOA offers a community fire pit and a pool, as well as a store and horseshoe pit.

Packard noted that the KOA is a popular destination for campers, particularly in the time of Born in a Barn at the beginning of September.

“I think glamping has picked up because people can make it their own, like the little campers. It’s a fun way to get away, it’s not necessarily expensive, and they can keep to themselves, but they can (also go) with their friends,” Packard said.

Campervans are now among the most popular types of glamping, Packard has observed. Packard said that campers are challenging to purchase and the price has increased. She’s spoken to numerous travelers who have traversed all of the U.S. to buy a camper. They will travel long distances to get these campers, she said.

Glamping is becoming more popular, and the need for camping spots that are open all through the winter and fall months grows. Accommodating this demand is also a factor for the KOA and Apsaalooke Glamping on the Crow Reservation in Montana.

Kathleen Carpenter, the owner of Apsaalooke Glamping, said glamping has become an appealing way to vacation. It allows smaller groups to enjoy private, more spacious locations to explore while being distanced from people.

“I think a lot of people starting looking into glamping and Airbnbs, you know just renting RVs and cabins. I think a lot of people got interested in glamping during this time. It is all the rave,” Carpenter said.

The enduring desire for glamping during the autumn months encourages tourists to take to the road and inspires glamping businesses to grow.
