Glamping St. Louis is about luxury, seclusion, and convenience. Come experience the beauty of our pond, private island, and the Mississippi River while staying in one of our secluded luxury camps. Our Safari Camps complement the natural surroundings of our site, and encourage a sense of connection, relaxation, and renewal.
Weekend Glampers can check-in anytime after 3:00 pm on Friday and your hosts; Peg & Lee, will give you a brief tour of the Lodge and property. Join us in the Lodge at 5:30 pm to meet the other Glampers and enjoy a glass of wine. Freshly roasted and brewed coffee will be awaiting you Saturday and Sunday mornings at 8:00 am in the Lodge. You can spend Saturday at the beach on 521 Island, bike through the farmland of St. Charles County, do a winery tour, drive the Great River Road, cross the Mississippi by ferry, or hike at Perre Marquette State Park. Upon returning you can unwind in your secluded Safari Camp, barbecue on the provided grill, and toast marshmallows around your private campfire.
***Glamping St. Louis is in Missouri’s great outdoors so be prepared to accept the inherent risk of your adventure including wildlife, insects, and unpredictable conditions (we can’t control weather or the River). Come with an adventurous and open mind, and
