PHOENIX -- If the idea of sleeping under the stars appeals to you, but the reality of roughing it makes you cringe, you could be a good candidate for "glamping."

That's the new buzzword that means upscale, glamorous camping. On Friday's Good Morning Arizona, the folks at REI showed off some products that can provide campers with all the comforts of home.

"There's a lot of different stuff to make it pretty nice and just like home," says Joe of REI. That includes camping stoves, pots and pans, steamers,  colanders and even wine carafes.

You can bring in a little technology to the campsite as well. "We've got a solar charger, charging my phone here," he says. "I've got a stereo box that can run off my phone."

If you're feeling eco-friendly and don't want to use paper plates, you can buy a portable sink to do your dishes. Other items include tents with quick set-up and loungers meant for those long maps in the great outdoors.
