Do you love sleeping under the stars in the great outdoors but also prefer a little extra comfort? At Timberline Glamping, an elevated camping experience in Jonathan Dickinson State Park, owners Zachary Graeve and Amanda Kyle will be your camping concierges.

In November, the married couple erected six luxurious tents, each the size of a small studio apartment, in the Pine Grove Campground Loop at the Hobe Sound park. The boho-chic accommodations come in three configurations—a king bed with two sets of bunks, two queen beds, or a queen bed with one set of bunks—all raised on a deck so you’re not sleeping on the ground. Amenities include fresh linens, pillows, a mini fridge, a Keurig coffee maker, and two hammocks. Plus, they’re temperature-controlled, so bougie glampers won’t sweat in the Florida heat.

Outside, the campsite includes a firepit, a charcoal grill, string lights, two camping chairs, and a picnic table. Just bring clothing, food, and sporting equipment if you plan to take advantage of the many amenities the park has to offer—including biking, hiking, birding, or fishing and kayaking on the Loxahatchee River—and leave the prep, setup, and cleanup to Timberline. “If you’ve ever thought about camping but felt it sounded a little bit daunting, this is definitely a way you can dip your toes in the water,” Graeve says. Timberline can customize the experience to include firewood, s’mores kits, extra chairs, lawn games, a pop-up screen enclosure outdoors to keep bugs away, and more.

Timberline Glamping was founded in 2018 by a Georgia couple and operates franchises in Georgia, Virginia, Alabama, and Florida. Graeve and Kyle’s Jupiter franchise is the third in Florida (the others are located in Sarasota and Tampa). A couple since their college days at the University of Colorado Boulder, they have long shared a love of hiking and camping, but when they had their son, Tyler, they found they needed a few more amenities to make camping comfortable with a child. After a visit to the Timberline site in Tampa, they decided to open their own franchise and settled on Jonathan Dickinson State Park.

During the week, guests are welcome to book a campsite for just one night, but there is a two-night minimum for weekends and holidays (and a maximum stay of 14 days). For now, glampers have access to bathrooms maintained by the park, but Timberline hopes to add plumbing and private bathrooms with a shower, toilet, and sink to several of their tents next fall. Eight guests are allowed per campsite, and dogs are also welcome (two furry friends per tent). Accommodations start at $149 per night; 561.230.3330
