Firelight Camps – Luxurious Camping In The Fingerlakes

We love to camp as a family, but the truth is, ever since we had our little girl this past June, we weren’t able to go camping. Just the thought of packing for three kids on top of our tent, our sleeping bags, and all our camp cooking essentials just made me even more exhausted than I already am as a homeschooling mom of three!

So when I stumbled on to Firelight Camps in Ithaca NY, a “glamping” (glamorous camping) experience, I convinced my husband to jump on the opportunity to give it a try. Firelight Camps offered the best of both worlds, being out in nature while still maintaining creature comforts like king-sized beds and daily complimentary breakfasts. We are so glad we decided to give them a try!

Here are a few pictures from our trip:

We stayed in Tent #9, which accommodated a king-sized bed and a double where my boys slept.

We also spent some time doing easy hikes. One of our favorite ones was hiking to Lucifer Falls in Robert H. Treman Park. It is GORGEOUS there!

We explored a little bit of Ithaca, stopping by the town commons and checking out the famous Farmer’s Market.

We had a really great time. I don’t think I’d give up regular campig, but glamping certainly has a place in my heart now!
