    The Treehouse CampSo you don’t
    have a tent or RV? Or maybe you’re just interested in trying out something
    new. You’re in luck! Tree houses offer you the convenience of rental
    accommodations and an element of adventure!

    “They are
    popular, especially for those people who don’t have any camping gear,” said
    George Reagan, who owns and operates Frontier
    in Ocean View, N.J. He says his
    campground was the first on the Jersey Shore to offer furnished tree houses,
    which come equipped with comfortable beds, a full kitchen and half bathroom.
    “Our tree house guests can cook up scrambled eggs. Fix dinner. We have a
    covered deck outside. They can sit out there even if it’s raining or snooze
    or do whatever they want to do,” Reagan said.

    While tree
    houses are popular with children, they have a special appeal for adults, too.

    you haven’t had a chance to sleep in a tree house yet, you’re in luck.
    Several campgrounds across the U.S. have them, including the
    Co/Toledo North
    Lakes KOA – Prizer Point
     and Mount
    Olympus ‘Zeus’ Village and Camp Resort
    in the
    Wisconsin Dells.

    Some campgrounds even have tree houses
    available for rent in winter, including The Treehouse Camp at
    Maple Tree
     in Rohrersville, Maryland. The tree house cottages
    come equipped with mattresses, wood burning stoves as well as tables and
    chairs, Soroko said, adding that the wood burning stoves can be used for
    cooking as well as heating during the winter months. “It’s a cozy rustic
    retreat,” she said with a smile, adding that the campground also has 12
    secluded tent sites.

    in Narvon, Pennsylvania, families
    and other big groups often rent the park’s tree house as overflow space for
    guests who don’t have their own RV or for people in their group who simply
    want the experience of camping in a tree house, said Jerome Bakker, the
    park’s owner. Lake-in-Wood also has other unique rental accommodations,
    including a double decker bus; a covered wagon; a teepee; a yurt; a caboose;
    and a Gnome home, a Gnome-themed park model cottage, each of which are
    located near clusters of RV sites so that people who travel in groups. Bakker
    said people who rent the tree house or other unique accommodations often come
    back the next year and rent something else.
