How does Hipcamp work?

Hipcamp partners with property owners to create new places for people to get outside—whether that’s pitching a tent on land, or staying in an existing structure like a small cabin.

Hosts sign up with Hipcamp and create a listing that shows the area(s) available to Hipcampers.

Hipcampers book and pay for their stay directly through Hipcamp, and hosts keep 90% of the payment. Hosts set their own prices and are covered by Hipcamp’s $1 million liability insurance.

Is my land a fit?

Hipcamp properties range from one acre to thousands, from rustic cabins to glamping tents, from working farms to remote forests, from developed campgrounds to raw land. Campers can book primitive tent camping with no official “amenities,” to glamping setups with every modern comfort included.

The diversity of options is what makes Hipcamp special, and we bet your land has something great to offer the community.

What knits all Hipcamp hosts together is simple: an interest in sharing your slice of heaven with others, and the desire to protect your land for future generations.

What Hipcamp Hosts are saying

We had the most incredible Labor Day Weekend. I had no idea how this website works and I decided to “just give it a try”. What a surprise! We filled up immediately with amazing, fun people who traveled quite a distance to camp with us.
Michelle, Host of Horse Lovers Land in Washington.
Hipcamp is what we had been unknowingly searching for. It was like finding that lost puzzle piece and saying ‘Boom let's do it!'
Michael, Host of 1955 Trail Chief Pop-up in California.
Hipcamp has totally changed my life and made my dream of the horse and animal sanctuary sustainable! In addition, the people that come to our land really love nature, are incredibly friendly and respectful. Not a single bad experience!
Montrese, Host of WildTender Ranch in California.
The truth is, Hipcamp has allowed me to keep our land the way it is. I don’t have to think about selling this place because this business model supports my long term plans. The empty promise of a bulk sale would bring cash to my family, but the dream of keeping this natural space protected, respected and accessible would die
Mackenzie, Host of Mendocino Magic in California.
Hipcamp is one of the greatest things that I've run into in this lifetime with regards to combining a community sense with a profitable return. Win-win for everyone. I'm ecstatic to be sharing my beautiful land, campers love being there, and finding a way to supplement my income I couldn't be happier.
Gary, Host of ShastaView in California.

Top 7 Frequently Asked Questions

What about insurance?

We are thrilled to provide the peace of mind that you will be taken care of in the rare event of a camper injury or property damage. Our Hipcamp Insurance Policy protects hosts for up to $1 million for general liability claims per occurrence.

We take safety and liability seriously at Hipcamp—all hosts must have an insurance policy in order to have a live listing and receive bookings. Hosts can choose to leverage their own commercial insurance policy, or qualify to be covered under Hipcamp’s Insurance Policy. This policy is in excess to your homeowner’s insurance, and in the event you do not have coverage under a homeowner’s insurance, this would act as your primary coverage.

Do I need bathrooms or other amenities?

In short: nope! Any amenity you offer is up to you. Some campers are looking for toilets, a shower, even electricity access. Others want to totally unplug and enjoy a rustic backcountry experience. All campers are encouraged to follow Leave No Trace principles. The key is communicating what kind of experience you’re offering, and letting campers decide.

Learn more about basic campground amenities.

How much should I charge for my listing?

For tent camping, we recommend pricing similar to local public campgrounds in your area, generally $10 – $40/night.

For structures such as cabins, glamping tents, etc.—the range is broader, from $40 – $250/night, depending on the amenities offered, location, etc.

What we’ve learned is that it’s best to start on more affordable side to get your first few bookings in, then if you want, move to a higher price as you get the experience ironed out.

What if a bad experience happens on my land?

We’ve got your back. In addition to protecting you with the Hipcamp Insurance Policy and Property Protection Plan, we make every effort to protect you against bad experiences before they happen. Before they can book a stay on your land, each camper signs an agreement stating they’ll follow your unique property rules and guidelines, and reviews the Leave No Trace principles. Finally: we have a single strike policy. If a camper is flagged within the community as misbehaving, he/she will be banned.
