outpost glamping ontario

This glamping resort is the ultimate Ontario wilderness escape

Luxury camping might be all the rage these days, but not every resort with prospector-style tents actually lives up to term "glamping." For that, a resort needs to offer exclusivity, seclusion, amazing food and accommodations that blend opulence with rustic charm.

outpost glamping ontarioOutpost Co. is the quintessence of glamping in Ontario, and everything about it is over-the-top in a way that recalls how the ultra rich would have travelled over a century ago. There's no electricity and certainly no WiFi, but everything else is all about a pampered wilderness experience.

outpost glamping ontarioThere are only eight people booked to stay here at any given time, so for all the rustic luxury, the idea really is to escape the city and soak up what is one of the most beautiful landscapes in the province. Guests are encouraged to go on guided hikes and canoe trips around the grounds.
