places to rest your head. This is Reacher, and here
are 15 unique campsites, resorts and in between. (techno music) – [Announcer] Number 15. – [Narrator] This first entry on our list is a collection of six uniquely
titled and appropriately themed vintage Airstream travel trailers. Located in Landers, California, the namesake of Kate’s Lazy
Desert is none other than Kate Pearson of the
musical group, the B52s. The trailers range in
length from 19 to 32 feet with sleeping accommodations
for two people. Standard amenities are
available in each one as well as a communal
and above ground pool for those hot days. Rates for all the trailers
start at $175 per night. – [Announcer] Number 14. – [Narrator] Okay,
hipsters, pay attention. This completely off the grid, family owned and operated eco resort is located in South Big Sur, California, just off of highway one. In addition to the organic
garden, pool and hot tub, the lodgings include a
bring your own tan area, multiple yurts, an autonomous
tent and two structures built from tree branches
called the Human Nest and the Twig Hut. Rates start as low as
$95 dollars per night for the BYOT area, with
the most expensive option being the autonomous tent
at $595 dollars per night. – [Announcer] Number 13. – [Narrator] This privately
owned ranch sits on the plains of Utah, offering plenty
of outdoor activities, as well as the option of
sleeping in tents and wagons reminiscent of the Old West. The structures are hand built
using frames of iron and wood with homespun canvas serving
as the walls and roof. And though they’re old in
style, they offer all the modern features for a family to
enjoy the camping experience. The tents have room for up to eight people while each wagon has room for up to six, with rates starting at $115 and
$145 per night respectively. – [Announcer] Number 12. – [Narrator] The Crater
of Diamond State Park in Murfreesboro, Arkansaw
has the distinction of being one of the
only places in the world where people can search for real gemstones and keep what they find. The Visitor’s Center provides
both information and tools for searching the 37 acre
field, which sits atop the eroded surface of a volcanic crater. Over 33000 diamonds have been found here, including the 40.23 carat
Uncle Sam, the largest diamond ever unearthed in the US. If you want to try your
hand at finding riches, you can score a camping space
starting at $13 per night. – [Announcer] Number 11. – [Narrator] A trailer park
on the roof of a hotel? Why? Because they can. In the heart of the city
center of Cape Town, South Africa, sits the Grand Daddy, a 123 year old boutique hotel. Taking the elevator to the roof will bring you to a collection of
seven airstream trailers all decorated with themes
unique to the country as well as having the necessary amenities of any standard hotel room. Additional features include
an open area roof top cinema with snacks and catering. Nightly rates start at
$274 for two people. While you’re trying to

the Seneca State Forest in West Virginia, sits the
Thorny Mountain Fire Tower. The 65 foot tall structure
was originally constructed in 1935 for wildfire detection,
but is now open to guests who wanna get away from, or above it all. A picnic table, campfire ring
and out house are located at the base of the tower,
while up top is a space that can accommodate up to four people. Unobstructed views of the
mountains and the night sky make the $100 per night
price tag well worth it. – [Announcer] Number nine. – [Narrator] Located alongside
South Carolina’s Edisto River in an area only accessible by boat, are a series of tree houses. Built from locally harvested materials, these out-of-the-way structures
are private from the others with an outdoor grill and
dining deck at each one. You’re also in the middle
of the 48 acre Edisto River refuge, which offers plenty
of hiking trails and wildlife as well as swimming and boating. The tree houses vary in size,
with sleeping for anywhere from two to eight people. Prices start at $160
per person, per night. – [Announcer] Number eight. – [Narrator] Sitting just below the summit of Mount Leconte, at an
elevation of 6400 feet is Leconte Lodge. Guests are situated in hand-built cabins with a sleeping capacity
for up to 12 people. Unlike most of this list, the site has no roads leading to it. Instead, there are five
different hiking trails ranging from five and a half
to eight miles in length by which travelers can gain access. All meals are included in the price, with supplies brought in
on the backs of llamas three times per week. Per person rates start at $151 per night. – [Announcer] Number seven. – [Narrator] Established
in 1986, Thames Skiff Hire has been providing camping
excursions with a twist. Travelers rent out a
camping skiff complete with a rooftop cover. After choosing a
destination and travel dates the skiff is put into the water, allowing a go at your own pace
trip along the River Thames. Multiple restaurants, pubs
and docks are available along any of the routes, as
well as gear to allow sleeping in the boat. The company offers trips
up to eight days long with starting rates of $425. – [Announcer] Number six. – [Narrator] This caravan
hotel located on the ground floor of a former vacuum cleaner factory, is located in the heart of Berlin. Sleeping accommodations are
provided by any of the eight caravans and three wood cabins, as well as the six standard
hotel rooms for those who want a conventional option. Bathing facilities, a cafe
and a court yard garden are a few of the amenities in
addition to the added bonus of free Wi-Fi and free parking. Rates for up to two people
will run you $80 to $115. – [Announcer] Number five. – [Narrator] If you like
the idea of being immersed in nature without having
to fight a wild animal for your food, then you’re in luck. Safari Lodge at the Zoo
de La Flèche in France offers multiple themed cabins integrated into the habitat areas. Bay windows in each one
are all that separates human from animal, allowing
you to observe and be observed. So if you like the idea of being
stared down by polar bears, lions and tigers, this one is
probably where you need to be. Per person rates for a two night stay start as low as $160. – [Announcer] Number four. – [Narrator] Located on a 70
acre tract of the California High Desert is an
ever-evolving testing ground of artistry known as AZ West. Within that area, you’ll find
a series of 12 futuristic pods, known as the Wagon
Station Encampment. Each one is big enough for just one person to stay in, providing
room to sleep and store a few essentials. There’s also a communal
area with facilities for cooking and bathing. Unfortunately spending time
here is by invitation only as it’s privately owned, but
monthly tours of the area are available for the curious. – [Announcer] Number three. – [Narrator] If the
ocean is more your style, then look no further than Wilson Island. Located about 45 miles off
the coast of Australia, this private getaway is accessible
via boat and helicopter. It has six safari style tents, offering room for up to 12 guests, along with an on-site chef,
providing gourmet dining for every meal. Day trips are available, or
you and 11 of your friends can book the whole island
for a minimum two night stay at $928 dollars per person. – [Announcer] Number two – [Narrator] Seeing the
Northern Lights usually means you’re gonna get cold. Real, real cold. This arctic resort in Finland
is no exception to that rule, having a location where the
temperature can get down to the single digits in the winter months. In addition to log cabins,
they also offer glass igloos which allow an uninterrupted
view of the night sky, along with wooden sleighs
to tow your luggage. And for those of you
interested in a winter wedding, they’ve even built a special
chapel out of snow and ice for such occasions. A night’s rest in the cabins
and igloos will start around $300 and $490 respectively. – [Announcer] Number one. – [Narrator] Located in
the Southern Arizona town of Bisbee, the Shady
Dell has the distinction of being the oldest operating
trailer court in the state, having started in 1927 as
Thompson’s Motor Court. Fast forward 91 years,
and you can book a stay in any of its eight vintage trailers, as well as a 1947 Chris-Craft boat and a 1947 Tiki bus. All of these have been
remodeled and decorated in period appropriate decor
down to the last detail. So much so, that you’d
think you’d hitched a ride in a flying DeLorean and
taken a step back in time. Nightly rates start at $85. – Hey guys, this is Cassie. I hope you guys enjoy this video. Tell us in the comments
