Ah, the great outdoors. There is nothing quite as therapeutic as an immersive nature experience – except for a nature experience that includes high thread count sheets and a wine bar.

We recently heard about the new AutoCamp phenomenon from travel writer Kelly Lack, who visited the new glamping grounds and summarily landed herself on the cover of Sunset Magazine with one of their shiniest Airstreams!

AutoCamp is a brand new travel experience with locations in two gorgeous California areas, Santa Barbara and Sonoma County. Both locales offer a similar experience: Enjoy the stunning natural atmosphere while cozied up in one of their Airstream trailers for a modern glamping weekend like no other.

The Russian River location is smack in the heart of Sonoma Wine Country, and centers on a charming mid-century clubhouse of the kind we’d expect to find in Ojai. In the place of a concierge, you’ll find an “Adventure Desk” and glampers can stay in either trailers with walk-in showers and wifi or beautiful tents with plush linens and a private fire pit.

In Santa Barbara, it’s Airstream only. Six trailers, all dressed to the nines in luxe linens, mid-century modern furniture, soaking tubs and kitchens. Beach cruisers are included with the stay and downtown Santa Barbara is just a short ride away.

As summer comes to a close, we’re thinking about how to keep the off-the-grid weekends and travel vibes alive through the new season and it’s little spots like AutoCamp that make us believe it’s possible!
