Summer Glamping Essentials at Whispering Springs Wilderness Retreat

Summer Glamping Essentials: What to bring on your glamping getaway

So you’ve booked your glamping getaway at Whispering Springs and now are wondering what to pack. Well, along with your most Instagram-worthy outdoorsy outfits here are a few items we suggest throwing in your suitcase prior to heading to the springs:

Insect repellent

It’s officially that time of year again! While we are doing our best to diminish the skeeter population, it’s still a good idea to throw some mosquito repellant in your suitcase or purchase some bug repellant at The Watering Hole.

Hat & Sunscreen

Whether your style is a baseball cap or cowboy hat, be sure to pack some headwear to protect yourself from the hot summer sun, and I’m sure you have heard it a million times before but summertime calls for: SPF, SPF, SPF! Be sure to throw some sunscreen in your suitcase before embarking on your glamping getaway.

Bathing suit

A bathing suit at the springs is an absolute must so that you can spend lazy afternoons at Saltwater Springs. Our saltwater pool is perfect for cooling off on a hot summer day and nothing beats an evening hot tub as you watch the stars come out to shine.


Even in the midst of summer, evenings in the great outdoors can get chilly. We suggest bringing a cozy sweater for cool nights around the campfire and early morning explorations.

Appropriate footwear

Be sure to plan your footwear accordingly to your vacay at the springs. We suggest bringing flip-flops or sandals for days at the pool and hiking boots or running shoes if your plan on exploring our forest trails.
