Glamping in the Selway - Bitterroot

Camping at the end of the road may not be for everyone, but when it's inside a wilderness area and your accommodations include a real bed and private chef, you might just be persuaded. It's called Glamping, or glamour camping, and it's catching on in Idaho. The camp we visit is run by Storm Creek Outfitters in the Selway - Bitterroot and Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness.

Guests awaken to the aroma of coffee and fresh baked bread. After a hearty breakfast, they can take a trail ride, go fishing, hiking, or just relax until lunch. And then there's a social hour at 6:00 pm, followed by a gourmet dinner. Glamping harkens back to the days of the African Safari when wealthy, white hunters were pampered and catered to by the native people. It might not be what we imagine when we think of camping in the wilderness, but for some the extra comfort is worth the extra price.
