<p>I canceled my dinner reservations.  The view outside was simply too inviting to forgo for a meal.  So instead, on a warm autumn day, I flung open my safari-style tent to find the most dazzling sunset I’ve ever seen and drank it in until the last burnt-orange glow disappeared below the horizon.  This gorgeous scene was exactly what I expected to find at Sankoty Lakes, a divine little glamping outfitter 12 miles north of Peoria, Illinois.</p>
<p>Sankoty Lakes, which opened its doors (or rather, its tent flaps) in 2021 just a tad inland from the Illinois River, is an adventure retreat both for fishing fans and those look to, frankly, do nothing at all. </p>
<p>All 20 tents, open from April to November, are much more than your average pop-up.  Each comes with electric heaters to stay cozy when the temperature drops at night and feature a kitchenette, bedroom, bath, and dining table that seats up to six guests (including your pup, as this is a pet-friendly space), just in case you’d like to throw a little dinner party.</p>
