With 22 national parks and monuments and 35 state parks, Arizona has an impressive range of landscapes. From the Grand Canyon, one of the world’s seven natural wonders, to the Sonoran Desert, the only place where you will find saguaro cactus, to the Coconino National Forest, where you will find the largest Ponderosa Pine forest in the world. The state is home to two famous waterfalls, Grand Falls and Havasu Falls, and seven sky islands, or peaks above 3,000 ft (914 m), thrusting towards the sky from the low-lying terrain below.

The Grand Canyon State is a magnet for adventure lovers who revel in its natural beauty. So it’s not surprising that camping tops the list of activities in Arizona. But, if you can’t bear the thought of roughing it, the good news is there’s a choice of glamping tents, pods and RVs where you can camp in style. Here are some places to go glamping in Arizona to help you plan your next getaway.
