Glamping!

Cozy huts, tucked privately into the woods.

Cozy huts, tucked privately into the woods.

If you like the idea of falling asleep under the stars and roasting marshmallows around a campfire, but the hassles of pitching a tent and sleeping on bumpy ground just don’t do it for you, then glamping, the new term being used for upscale — or glamorous — camping, could be your ideal vacation.

Wild Yough is proud to introduce glamping to the beautiful mountaintop playground of Garrett County, Maryland.  “Yough” is short for Youghiogheny River, a state designated wild and scenic river which runs through the heart of the property.  The owners of Wild Yough split their time between this property and their home just outside Amsterdam in The Netherlands.  They have stayed in many glampgrounds across Europe and Africa and are bringing those experiences, combined with a down-to-earth, Appalachian twist, to Wild Yough Glamping Huts.

The idea is simple- our glamping site will offer a true camping experience without all the hassles and fuss.  With 350 acres of private ground, adjacent to thousands of acres of state park and forest, Wild Yough offers plenty of space to spread out, stretch your legs, watch the deer, and howl with the coyotes.  You won’t be packed into a row of RV’s or tents where you can hear your neighbor snoring.  You won’t have to set up camp in the rain.  And you’ll never have to sleep on the ground!   You’ll have your own heated hut, warm soft bed, and private space for long evenings around the campfire.  And our bathhouse and pavilion facilities are designed with comfort, cleanliness and relaxation in mind.

We invite you to spend some time and explore our site, and better yet, book a vacation at Wild Yough and experience glamping first hand.

  1. Good luck with this new venue Dan. I’m keen to visit Falling Water sometime so your glampground sounds like a great place to stop on the way. Cheers Alison (Swets, Australia)

  2. Garrett County is one of my favorite places. This sounds like a wonderful alternative to a huge sprawling house or a motel room. Can’t wait to try it!

    • Hello Margaret – We’re still working on the website and really appreciate the feedback. Pricing and interior photos are available on the links to the reservations page, but I’ll look at adding them into the main site as well.

  3. Could not find reservation page or pics for “Glampground.” Was really interested in seeing what this place had to offer, but this website is not user friendly. Moving on to a new search.

    • Hi Shannon – Maybe your browser isn’t rendering the site properly. There is a drop down menu at the top right of the site with links to all of the Glamping huts and tipi as well as pictures of the overall site and a map of the full 400 acre property. There is also a link to the reservations page, which is managed by our partner Offlake Rentals. http://www.offlakerentals.com (search for glamping). Please let me know if you still have difficulty with the site and what browser you are using so that I can make any adjustments needed to the code. Thanks!

  4. Hello! Your cabins look great. Were they built custom or locally? We vacation in Garrett county and will add your cabins to our list of places to stay!!

    • Hi Paul –

      Thanks! The huts were custom designed and built by a company from Ohio. We wanted solid wood instead of plywood or pressed board so that they are as nice on the inside as they are on the outside. We’d love to have you come out and stay with us.

      Cheers,

      Dan
