In Northern New Mexico, about three hours by car south of Colorado Springs, Turner House (doubles from $1,600, all-inclusive) is the newest addition to the private, 558,000-acre Vermejo, a Ted Turner Reserve — one of four massive wilderness retreats owned by the media mogul turned conservationist. The just-launched property has a mere 10 rooms, some with a fireplace and soaking tub, and promises 30 miles of fishable streams and 19 well-stocked lakes right on your doorstep.

Outside Missoula, Montana, the founders of beloved ranch-retreat the Resort at Paws Up will open the Green O (doubles from $2,730, all-inclusive) this fall, with 12 adults-only cabins, including four elevated, glass-walled “Tree Hauses”; four bungalows with skylights and living roofs covered in native grasses; and four home-size suites with outdoor decks and hot tubs. While guests get the full run of the 37,000-acre Paws Up Ranch — rafting, rappelling, and ATV tours are among the exploits on offer — the intimate new retreat is set on a secluded parcel of wilderness a mile away from the original resort. Rounding out stays are locally sourced menus (ranch-raised meat, house-made brioche and sourdough) from chef Brandon Cunningham, formerly of restaurants Castagna and Renata, both in Portland, Oregon.

And in New York City — as incongruous a place for a camping retreat as any — Collective Governors Island (doubles from $399) plans to be open through October. The formerly tent-only campground on a small island in New York Harbor had its first season in 2018, and now it’s gotten a serious upgrade in the form of new shipping container–inspired Outlook Shelters, equipped with king beds and decks lit by fairy lights. The property has also added morning yoga classes, a wood-fired kitchen turning out multicourse meals, and — most notably — private boat transfers from downtown Manhattan and Brooklyn, offering an alternative to the Governors Island Ferry.
