Maine’s status as “Vacationland” just got upgraded. In a partnership with ‘glamping’ management company Tentrr, the State Parks system of Maine is set to include 10 fully-stocked glamping sites at a number of state parks in the state, complete with luxury amenities like wood stoves, canvas tents, and outdoor showers.

This partnership is the first of its kind for installing Tentrr’s glamping tents at public campgrounds in state parks.

Tentrr’s glamping tents will be available in seven of Maine’s state parks, and each one will come with cozy amenities more often seen in private campgrounds (like these Texas glamping destinations).

Maine’s Bradbury Mountain State Park near Portland will see the first of these sites open for Memorial Day weekend.

Tentrr also works to establish glamping campgrounds on private land throughout the U.S., currently numbering at more than 600 campgrounds in 35 states. According to GearJunkie, Tentrr will be establishing their Maine glamping tents in six other state parks: Rangeley Lake, Camden Hills, Mount Blue, Lamoine, Peaks-Kenny, and Warren Island, all of which are set to launch on the Fourth of July.

“With this partnership, we look forward to providing a new way for people to experience our parks as campers, and to maximize the benefits that come with spending time outdoors,” said Amanda Beal, commissioner of the Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation, and Forestry (DACF), in an interview with GearJunkie.

The reservable sites will cost $100 per night, available through Tentrr’s website and not through the state park system.
