Camp in Style

"Glamp" in a rustic canvas tent, à la fancy African safaris. The lodge staff totes dinner to your site's grill, where you cook up your own harvest feast of wild salmon fillets, corn, and veggie kebabs under the stars. The Lakedale Resort campground includes cozy canvas-wall tents, lodge rooms, and log cabins. Rates start at $32 (campsites), $149 (lodge rooms), $179 (canvas tents), and $249 (log cabins); 360/378-2350 or lakedale.com.
