Glamp Like A Pro
I have always been an adventure camper. Hiking in, setting up a tent, eating freeze dried food and sleeping on the ground was what I was used to. Then when I moved to Nashville I started car camping on climbing trips. I hadn’t even really camped in too many designated campgrounds. I had definitely never tried glamping.
I came across The Green Canteen Company on instagram when I was planning a weekend trip with my gals. It seemed like the perfect fit for a group creatives because 1. the campers are extremely photogenic, and 2. They are equipped with all of the amenities we might need for sleeping, cooking and comfort. This allowed us to bring all of the photo props we needed with extra room in the car. I figured I could give up a little adventure for the weekend because let’s be honest, everyone likes to be comfortable every once in a while. I am no exception :)
The Green Canteen Company is a family owned business based in Franklin, Tennessee. They are so friendly and made us feel right at home. They have two different retro campers to choose from. The seafoam camper (Comet) is 16ft and sleeps 3 adults. The buttercream trailer (Daisy Lou) is 19ft and sleeps 4 adults. The interior is modeled after the original 1960’s campers with modern amenities such as a flush toilet, shower, TV, AC/heat, stove, microwave, kitchen utensils, and super clean bedding. I was also SO impressed with the upkeep of the camper. Setup is also included in every stay.
We chose to take our camper to Montgomery Bell State Park, but you can really take it anywhere you want. Here is a list of places they recommend taking it. All you have to do is book an RV camping site somewhere with an electric hookup, and they will take it there and handle the setup for you. All you have to do is show up with yourself, clothes, and food. There are links to book campsites at different state parks around Tennessee on their website as well.
If you are looking for weekend glamping, or a cute photoshoot location I highly recommend staying with the Green Canteen Company :)
