This Majority Black-Woman Owned Glamping Site Opens This Week
If you’re looking for a little something outside of your norm without sacrificing your need for luxury, this new Kentucky camp spot is for you. Camp Bespoke is set to open this month in Williamstown, Kentucky.
The majority Black-woman owned 32-acre campground was co-founded by Lexington native Nicole Brassington, Misty Smith, Latasha Reid, and Dr. Angela Strickland.
“We wanted to create a destination with Camp Bespoke where there is a little something for everyone,” Nicole Brassington said in a news release. “Whether you are an outdoor enthusiast or prefer to lodge at hotels, Camp Bespoke is the perfect blend of both.”
According to the website, visitors can choose to stay in tipis, cottages, or decked out cabins. For the true nature enthusiasts, you can also stay in a more primitive site.
There are also several experiences to add to your stay like bourbon and wine packages, culinary arts experiences, as well as horseback riding, and other Kentucky-themed excursions.
“Camp Bespoke is truly a Kentucky Proud project designed to be an elevated camping experience with unique lodging accommodations and curated excursions authentic to Kentucky that will create memories that last a lifetime.”
Phase one of the development is set to open this week, with the second phase opening in 2021. A portion of all sales from stays will be donated to organizations that uphold standards of fairness and equality across the state.
