Hipcamp Is the New Airbnb for the Outdoors

Explore the huge tracts of pristine nature previously locked away as private land.

By //Travel

Airbnb is great for those looking to get away from the city, but what if you want to get away from civilization entirely? Enter Hipcamp, a fledgling San Francisco-based startup that allows you to find and camp in private land, thus opening up large tracts — approximately 60% of the U.S. — of previously (legally) inaccessible parts of nature to the enjoyment of all. Along with unspoiled camping grounds that provide a pure, no-frills camping experience, there are also properties that offer organic farming, wild foraging, and outdoor classrooms. This new part of the sharing economy goes both ways, with the new source of revenue from campers providing funds for landowners to further pursue conservation efforts. Covering 36 states, 1,700 parks, and 6,500 campgrounds in the U.S., head over to Hipcamp now to discover more camping options.
