Horrible and dangerous experience!
I have used hipcamp many times and I have NEVER had an experience so horrible! I usually use it to backwoods camp but I thought we’d try out glamping while we were on vacation. For starters the lodging sites are in terrible shape! The original attempt at staying in our selected site, the tent was absolutely covered in mold and smelled awfully. The mold was visible, inside and out. You could touch it and come away with mold. There was also an active wasp nest inside the window of the tent. We contacted the host and he moved us to an airstream on the same property. Unfortunately, this “upgrade” was significantly worse! We opened it up and the whole thing smelled terribly of propane, like someone had left it pumping into the unit. Some of the windows wouldn’t open at all and the ones that did had no screens so bugs were just flying in to the light inside. We had no real way to air it out. We contacted the host AGAIN and he said he’d have to charge us more to move us again! Neither place was safe to sleep in! We needed a place to stay so we tried to make it work there. Unfortunately, one of the people in our party was vomiting within half an hour of being inside. We let the host know and he didn’t respond. We ended up driving back roads to the nearest town at 11PM to find a safe place to sleep and paying another couple hundred for a hotel. Avoid this place at all costs! The images are misleading and the host is doing nothing but scamming people regardless of their safety.

Slate Crossing: Creekside Dome
The spot is fabulous! Right off the river with peaceful flowing sounds. The campsite is quiet and maintained. Everything you need to feel at home is provided. The host Jamey is so considerate and even accommodated a last minute change to our plans. We can’t recommend this spot enough!
