Is there heating in the tents?
Due to recent changes in New York State fire code, we are no longer allowed to use propane heaters in the tents. After testing every bedding solution on the market, we'll be adding the super heavy-weight Rumpl Super Fleece Blanket over our duvets on cold nights. We've also prepared The Glamper's Essential Packing List to help you pack smartly for the weather. For more details, read our blog post.
Are dogs allowed?
YES. Friendly dogs are allowed for an additional $25 per night in our King Tents only. Please check the box for 'pet friendly' when making a reservation through the booking system. We ask that dogs sleep on the floor, and are not left unattended at any time during your stay.
Is there electricity in the tents?
NO. We provide battery-powered lanterns to illuminate the tents. For your convenience, we offer a charging station for your phones, computers, and other devices in our lobby tent, but we encourage you to unplug during your stay and immerse yourself in nature.
Is there (hot) running water?
YES. Our bath house has hot running water, electricity, flushing toilets and everything else you need to feel put the "glam" in glamping!
How far is Firelight from downtown Ithaca?
Firelight Camps is just far enough from town to be quiet and peaceful, while still offering easy access to a range of activities. The glampground is 1 mile south of Ithaca College and 3.5 miles from downtown Ithaca (a 5-7 minute drive). Cornell University is about 4 miles away, or a 10 minute drive.

What time is check-in and check-out? Is early check-in available? Is late check-out available?
Check-in is at 3pm, and check-out is at 11am. Please contact us if you will be arriving to Firelight after 9pm, or if you would like to arrange late checkout 1pm for an additional fee of $20. Due to the short time we have to flip the campground, we do not offer early check-in.
Do the tents have their own fire rings?
NO, due to fire code regulations, our Camp Hosts tend two fire rings centrally located in the lobby and lounge area.
Can we pitch an additional tent on our site? Do you have RV hookups?
