Glamp It Up with a Portable Spa

Sometimes you get lucky enough to be in a special place and witness a natural phenomenon called a hot spring. These are produced by the emergence of geothermally heated groundwater that rises from the Earth’s crust – often in magical ways.

If you’re even luckier, that hot spring is the correct temperature for bathing (many of them are way too hot for humans) and you get to enjoy nature and the restorative properties reported to be associated with soaking in the hot mineral water of the spring.

But not everyone can get to a hot spring (or camp near one), so in that case you may want to glamp it up and bring your own spa.


Behold, Coleman’s Lay-Z Massage Spa, a portable hot tub that will definitely take your outing from camping to glamping. You and 4 to 6 of your friends can relax and sit in water temperatures up to 104 degrees while communing and nature. Talk about living large.

Of course, I can’t recommend using this on a shorter trip as that would be somewhat wasteful of our most precious natural resource – water. This especially applies if you’re glamping in California, since we are experiencing a serious drought here in the Golden State and water is a precious commodity that is in short supply. But if you’re headed out to an area that is not drought stricken and will be staying for a few days, this could be ultimate glamping accessory.
