Luxury Glamping

Go camping in Style at Autocamp Russian River.



Aubrie Pick

Camping, much like Brussels sprouts, is an acquired taste. Sleeping on the ground, getting dirt under your fingernails, and trekking to the bathroom with a flashlight can make overnighting in the outdoors a tough sell. 

But the Airstream trailers at AutoCamp Russian River have a sparkling way of making outdoor adventure comfortably fun. Set in a sleepy redwood grove off of Highway 116 in Sonoma County, Radio Flyer little red wagons serve as colorful luggage carts, but you don’t need to bring much with you. Airstream galleys have a well-stocked kitchen with a sink, convection microwave oven, and small refrigerator. The nearby sofa converts into a full-size second bed. The bedroom boasts a queen-size bed, two small nightstands, a TV, and electrical outlets. The bathroom has a walk-in shower with about seven minutes’ worth of hot water. Heat and air conditioning make the posh trailers usable year-round.

Every Airstream has an outdoor patio with a table, chairs, and a fire pit with grill top. You don’t have to cook, though; nearby Guerneville is loaded with tasty eateries, but plan on roasting s’mores. 

May through October, the boutique campground also offers platform luxury tents, with queen beds, electric blankets, lights, and electricity. Bathrooms and showers are located in the AutoCamp clubhouse. 

With a front desk and small store selling wine, beer, snacks, and souvenirs like mugs and sweatshirts, the open-air clubhouse (complete with heat lamps) is much like a traditional hotel lobby. Guests are encouraged to hang out by the fire pit or spend quality time with a classic board game.

Rates at AutoCamp Russian River start at $225 per night in the Airstreams and $159 per night in the luxury tents. Wi-Fi and parking is complimentary. AutoCamp is a nonsmoking property. 14120 Old Cazadero Road, Guerneville, (888) 405-7553, autocamp.com/guides/location/russian-river.
