Add this to your list of socially distanced trips to take: AutoCamp just opened a new luxury campsite in Joshua Tree, California, with stylish accommodations in sleek Airstreams and glamping tents. It will soon be followed by locations in New York’s Catskill Mountains in spring 2022 and outside Zion National Park in Utah in early 2023.

Established in 2013, AutoCamp already has two locations in California—near Yosemite National Park and the Russian River in Sonoma County. The Catskills location will be AutoCamp’s second East Coast location, following the opening of AutoCamp Cape Cod in 2021.

When all three of the new locations are open, they will bring the total number of AutoCamp sites to six, effectively doubling the number of properties the company operates across the United States. Here’s what you can look forward to at the new sites.

AutoCamp Joshua Tree

Book now: from $299 per night, autocamp.com; expedia.com

Located just outside of its namesake national park, AutoCamp Joshua Tree features 47 Airstreams, 4 accessible suites, and 4 X Suites spread across 25 acres. While some of these units come with outdoor showers, all of them feature updated HVAC systems to accommodate year-round travel even during the hottest months in the summer.

Guests can also expect AutoCamp mainstays like a general store stocked with food and drinks and a common building known as the “Clubhouse,” with a café and bar serving organic comfort food and local California beer and wine. A seasonally heated plunge pool will open in March 2022.

The World's Biggest Tree House Resort Is Opening Near This U.S. National Park

  The World's Biggest Tree House Resort Is Opening Near This U.S. National Park The finished resort will have 130 treehouses on 40 acres in East Tennessee.When Amanda Jensen's four kids were younger, her husband Brian built them a tree house, complete with bunk beds, a trap door, a swing, and a zip line. "After the kids decided they were on to more important things than playing in it, we joked about renting it out because tree houses were becoming 'a thing,'" she told Travel + Leisure.

Inspired by arched metal Quonset huts, the design of the Clubhouse at Joshua Tree is meant to be a nod to local midcentury-modern architecture while also blending into the natural desert landscape. Guests will find artwork both indoors and out here, including a wall sculpture by Ana DiGiallonardo, an outdoor mural by Jaque Fragua, plus a tapestry by the Avo design studio hung in the lounge.

To reduce the site’s environmental impact, AutoCamp Joshua Tree has an onsite water treatment system and solar panels on the Clubhouse, while the landscaping features plants requiring minimal water. Those who plan on visiting Joshua Tree to go stargazing will also be happy to hear AutoCamp uses dark-sky compliant lighting to protect the area’s status as an International Dark Sky Park.

Why Tea Tree Oil Is the Key to a Happy, Flake-Free Scalp

  Why Tea Tree Oil Is the Key to a Happy, Flake-Free Scalp Nope, it's not just for your pimples.If you've ever had a pimple in your life, you probably already know about tea tree oil (and if you haven't had a pimple, how does it feel to be the universe's favorite?). This little essential oil is frequently touted as one of the best natural skincare ingredients for acne (and there are some studies to back it up), but let me ask you this: Did you know it moonlights as a natural haircare ingredient, too? Specifically for treating, soothing, and calming your irritated, itchy, and flaky scalp.

AutoCamp Catskills will be located in the town of West Saugerties an hour or so north of New York City. It will have 95 accommodations, including Airstreams, luxury tents, cabins, accessible suites, and X Suites. The Clubhouse will be inspired by the architecture of the barns you’ll often see in this agricultural region. Guests can also look forward to a seasonally heated swimming pool.

AutoCamp Zion

When AutoCamp Zion opens in Utah in early 2023, it will have 72 Airstreams, 10 luxury tents, 5 accessible suites, and 4 X Suites for guests to book.
