AutoCamp, a Santa Barbara-born startup, offers an outdoor glamping experience in which guests get cozy in deck-out Airstreams and luxury canvas tents. The company recently opened its newest location just outside Yosemite National Park. Right now the camp is open for preview stays. Guests can hibernate in 15 luxury tents, three cabin suites, or 80 deluxe Airstream trailers on AutoCamp’s property. There are also five ADA accessible suites designed by Los Angeles-based M-Rad Inc. Each site comes with its own fire pit with compressed logs to reduce smoke and fire danger.
