KCR GLAMPING PACKING LIST

Glamping = luxury camping in nature

 

The one thing you will not find at Kimberly Creek Retreat is WiFi.  We believe that glamping should be a time and place where you can unplug and relax.  If you must connect, you can use your cell phone anywhere on the property.

 

At Kimberly Creek Retreat we eliminated tents.  We literally offer you the luxury of a private hotel cabin in the middle of our woods.  Our motto is that all you need to bring are some clothes, your toothbrush and an attitude of experiencing all the fun Mother Nature has to offer.

 

To help you prepare for your Glamping adventure, we offer the following tips and recommendations.

 

We provide

At Kimberly Creek Retreat you'll find most of the amenities of an extended stay hotel, plus some extras to enhance your glamping experience.  In your private cabin you will find:

  • Air conditioning and heating for year round comfort.

  • Sheets & pillows on your bed. Blankets during the cool months.

  • Freshly laundered bath towels.

  • Bathroom inside your cabin with flushing toilet, hot shower, shampoo, conditioner, soap, and hair dryers.

  • Based on your cabin selection you will have a mini-fridge, microwave, toaster, toaster oven, & coffee pot.

  • Silverware, plates, cups, pots/pans, kitchen utensils, grilling utensils.

  • All cabins come with their own cooking grill and firepit. Larger firepits for groups are available to rent for an additional cost.

  • We provide power outlets with USB charging ports in each cabin.

  • Snacks (s'mores!), beverages, sunscreen, bug spray, are available for purchase.

Clothes

Even in the warmer months the temperature can drop in the evening so be sure to bring warmer clothes than you think you'll need! 

  • Casual clothing for hanging around the glamp-ground and exploring town and nearby attractions.

  • Trail-friendly clothing for hikes and outdoor adventures.

  • Evening wear for a nice meal at a restaurant or vineyard visit.

  • Swimwear and a beach towel if you plan to visit a lake or swimming pool. (Both Mahoney and Platte River State Parks have swimming).

Layers

  • Base layer (a.k.a. leggings/long johns “Under Armour”) top and bottom for hiking, lounging, layering or wearing as pajamas.

  • Fleece, insulated jacket or vest for added warmth or layering under a raincoat or shell.

  • Sweatshirt or sweater for cozy, casual warmth and layering.

Shoes & accessories

  • Trail shoes: depending on the forecast or what activities you have planned, you could bring hiking shoes, rain boots, or sneakers. Bottom line: something you can walk in and don't mind getting muddy.
