CAMP FIMFOSome call it luxury camping, glamorous camping or more commonly “glamping.”

And in the heart of Central Texas, you’ll find a unique retreat where nature and luxury meet, according to KXXV.

It’s a term that was created over a decade ago to describe an elevated form of camping. Now glamping has become a big part of outdoor recreation. At Camp Fimfo Waco, off Lake Shore Drive in Waco, Texas, you’ll find they bridge the gap between traditional camping and all the comforts of home.

“We’re glamping at its best, honestly,” said Brian Crownover, Camp Fimfo’s guest experience manager.

Crownover said the park’s 211 acres along the Bosque will someday be able to accommodate up to a thousand guests enjoying camping of all sorts.

“Some people go rogue and they have their tents and they want to experience the weather and the heat and the cold,” said Crownover. “But for some people, I guess the term glamping was coined with air conditioning and softer beds and a way to get out of the weather when your kids and all that are kind of tired of it. So we built these cabins that can hold up to 12 three bedrooms, very soft mattresses, TVs, microwaves and refrigerators. Glamping is a fun term.”

Waco’s Camp Fimfo just opened in July and is still a work in progress. Eventually, there will be 150 cabins and 150 RV sites.
