Unique Camping Experiences on Hipcamp

There are so many ways to enjoy the outdoors, and everyone’s experience in the nature is their own. Here are 13 unique camping experiences you can find on Hipcamp—everything from private waterfall glamping in California to morning muffin service in Maine.

Camp next to your Own Private Waterfall

Dreams do exist—you can camp next to your own private waterfall and swimming hole at Clear Creek Ranch in the heart of Shasta County, California.

…with views of the San Francisco Bay. The Mare Island Preserve in Vallejo, California is only 40-minutes from San Francisco and accessible via public transit! Learn more about this grassroots-led conservation project here.

Glamp with Your Dog

Because you should never have to leave your best bud at home. This glamp is at Kenosha Pass, Colorado, but you can search for hundreds of pet-friendly Hipcamps by using the filters on the left side of the discover page.

Feed Tiny Adorable Piglets

“What better way to start your morning than cuddling with baby pigs?” Make farm friends at Best Friends Farm in Winston, Oregon—far from the noise and light pollution of the city.

Soak in Hot Springs

These hot springs are a short 5-minute drive from Paradise Shores in the Eastern Sierras, California. The husband and wife team that own this tent and RV campground next to Bridgeport Reservoir “believe in campfires, starry nights, good laughs, exploration, a deep sleep and an early rise.” Best part of early rises at this Hipcamp? You’ll be the first one to those hot springs!

Bodega Bay, California looks like Rivendell from Lord of the Rings when you stay at this treeehouse at the Salmon Creek Ranch.

Pick Bananas, Papayas (and Mangos) on a Mango Farm

You’ll arrive and never want to leave.Sunrise Hale in Historic Mango is *the* way to experience the beauty and hospitality of the Big Island.
