Camping is a fantastic way to get out and experience nature as well as spend quality time with your favorite people. It does require a lot of prep to make sure you have the equipment, food, and supplies you need and that they are properly packed. That's why glamping is such a great alternative.

What is glamping? Short for glamourous camping, it means that the place you're going has just about everything you need already set up and all you have to do is show up, get comfy, and enjoy being immersed in nature.

Recently, North Shore Camping Co. opened for business and they offer a cool glamping experience in Beaver Bay, located on Minnesota's scenic North Shore. They have a variety of walk-in sites featuring tälts that are fully outfitted with everything that you need. This can be both a massive time saver and a stress reliever.
