Arizona’s Village Camp Flagstaff delivers stunning views of the San Francisco Peaks from its 50-acre site in Bellemont, surrounded by Coconino National Forest. But that’s not all it offers.
As glamping continues to trend with today’s travelers, the glamorous Northern Arizona camping resort features a diverse range of accommodations to attract a wide range of outdoor enthusiasts.
Village Camp Flagstaff offers posh cabins, spacious RV sites and opportunities to own mountain retreats. Guests or owners will have base camps with the amenities of a boutique hotel, such as a resort-style swimming pool area and bistro.
“The whole concept is to promote living simply with a smaller environmental footprint – from more efficient use of living and outdoor spaces to shared amenities,” said Village Camp founder Scott Roberts. “Environmental stewardship and taking care of public lands and open spaces in Village Camp’s backyard is a primary focus. Village Camp outfitters will play a key role in teaching Leave No Trace principles through programming and events, including wilderness safety and preparedness, wildfire education and how to travel like a local in Flagstaff.”
Village Camp was developed by Roberts Resorts, an Arizona family-owned business with more than 55 years of experience developing outdoor resorts. “We used this experience, and our own love of RV camping and the outdoors lifestyle, to find the right balance of amenities and activities to enhance the outdoor experience,” said Roberts. Village Camp Flagstaff is the second location of the recently launched brand. Village Camp Truckee in California opened recently. A Village Camp in Moab is next on the docket.
“We carefully designed Village Camp to blend in with the natural environment and create a seamless transition between indoor and outdoor living, for example, using minimalist designs and natural materials like wood, stone and lots of glass, to showcase the breathtaking views of the surrounding landscape,” said Roberts.

Glamping Adventure Cabins at Village Camp Flagstaff are constructed by Cavco Industries, the leading manufacturer of park models, cabins and cottages. They are fully furnished and provide sleeping arrangements for four to eight people. Pet-friendly cabins are also available.
Shared amenities include a community center, pool and spa, general store, bar and bistro, lounge area with indoor firepit, outdoor patio and event lawn. The property offers a Summer Concert Series and movie nights as well.
Mountain Retreat Ownership Option
“We are offering ownership for our glamping Adventure Cabins, which also sets Village Camp apart [from other glamping resorts]. Our brand promise is ‘Creating shared memories through outdoor adventure’ because we are trying to build a community of people that want to connect with the outdoors and other like-minded individuals and families,” said Roberts.
Adventure Cabin ownership includes property maintenance and access to Village Camp’s professionally managed vacation rental program. Ownership perks include early access to event tickets, celebrity chef dining experiences and winetasting events.
RV Sites with Shared Amenities
RV sites are reportedly larger than many other RV resorts. Upgrades include firepits or a full fireplace and grill. Amenities including programs, activities and events.
According to Grandview Research projections, the global glamping market measures $3.15 billion for 2023 and is expected to grow 10% annually to $5.93 billion in 2030.
