Tent for Two on the River near Prairie Grove, Arkansas
Who It’s For: A couple looking for a true wilderness moment
Glam Scale: Rustic and remote
If spending time on Ozarks waterways just makes you wish you had your own private piece of the river all to yourself, then you’ll probably enjoy this glamping tent tucked away in the woods near Prairie Grove, Arkansas.
A spacious wooden deck holds a canvas bell tent, dining table, outdoor sofa, grill and even some tiki torches and string lights for a little ambiance. Inside the tent, you’ll find a comfy bed, mini-fridge, seating and some storage. And even though you’ll be roughing it ever so slightly more at this spot than some of the others on the list (there’s no air conditioning, for example), you still have access to a separate bath house with shower, sink and compost toilet.
It’s the area just outside the tent that is the most enticing. There’s a firepit perfect for roasting marshmallows. Comfy hammocks are strung up between some of the trees on the shady lot, and a scenic stream pools into a perfect, private swimming hole just steps away.
When you need to find your way back to civilization, Fayetteville, Arkansas, is only about 15 minutes away. There you can stock up on groceries for your tent, or find a spot to dine out.
