And, while many of these places book up fast, you'll definitely want to check them out. You can grab a few pics to share on IG or Facebook, and then toss your phone in your bag and enjoy nature with your friends or family (or both!)

Our family spent a long weekend in the family treehouse last summer and had an absolute blast. It has a net ceiling that connects two lofted areas, sleeps 8 comfortably and has a bathroom with a shower plus a kitchenette. The campgrounds have a pool and hiking trails, dog run and other fun for the kids. The airstreamsare pretty neat and the yurts look amazing too.
