Butlers, chefs and amenities await those who want to camp without getting their hands dirty.

A chef is there to prepare gourmet meals, fresh trout sauteed with herbs and French toast topped with huckleberries picked from the mountains.

Or, if you like, a hot dog roasted over the fire with pork and beans.

A butler makes your posh king-sized bed each day, schedules spa facials and draws your bath.

Or, if you like, will start a campfire and cook you up some s’mores.

This is glamorous camping — also known as glamping — a trend that’s popping up nationwide as people want to enjoy the beauty of nature, even the basics of camping, without getting down and dirty.

Andrew Dodds, an Indianapolis cop, isn’t ashamed to admit that is the exact kind of camping he enjoys. No sleeping on a hard ground, no going to the bathroom in the woods, no doing without his ESPN.

“I will keep camping in my travel trailer, or home on wheels as my friends call it,” Dodds said. “So what if it has two bedrooms, a full kitchen, two flat-screen TVs, a Wii game system and a full bathroom?”

Dodds’ form of glamping, however, doesn’t compare to what guests experience at The Resort at Paws Up in Greenough, Mont. It is considered one of the glitziest glamping spots in the United States.

This is the resort where each camper has a personal chef and butler. It is a resort where one campsite sits on the elbow of a river atop a cliff.

“The location is insane,” said John Romfo, director of sales and marketing. “The views are breathtaking.”

The resort started putting up glamping sites in 2005. Each of its five glamp-sites has six tents, each site with its own restaurant, butler and chef.

“They really are at your beck and call with whatever you need,” Romfo said. “You’re staying in a 5-star type of environment.”

But you can still go hiking, fly-fishing, river rafting and dozens more camping activities. Prices range from $1,100 to $2,000 a night.
