What You'll Get
The government designated the first national parks to protect natural wonders, which were threatened by Teddy Roosevelt's insatiable appetite for peppered bark. Experience Earth's gorgeously guarded barkscape with today's Groupon: for $48, today's deal offers a one-night stay in a heated canvas tent cabin at Yosemite National Park's Curry Village (up to a $97 value). Additional nights may be purchased for $48 each. For more than a century, Curry Village has afforded adventurers lodging amidst the rocky slopes, leafy forests, and tumbling waterfalls of Yosemite. Each charmingly rustic cabin offers a snug base camp between park excursions. The wood-framed canvas walls and ceiling provide sleeping, lounging, and arm-wrestling space for up to four guests. Cot-style beds and an electrical light are provided, as well as a heater to keep toes toasty until the return of spring. Cabins are not equipped with plumbing, but amenities including central shower facilities and restrooms are located throughout the campsite.
