Introducing Free Data Coverage Maps to Make Working from Nature Easier

We’re excited to announce the unlocking of free data coverage maps—for everyone—now available on

At Hipcamp, we believe in free access to public data that makes it simple for everyone to get outside.

“We’re proud to be the first outdoor stays company to offer free in-platform access to this data,” says Hipcamp CEO Alyssa Ravasio. “During the past several years, we’ve seen a tremendous increase in the number of digital nomads using Hipcamp to find incredible places to work from nature. Placing public mobile coverage data behind paid membership walls or costly subscriptions greatly limits who can be confident about planning their outdoor stay, and we’re pleased to offer all campers richer information about what they can expect when they get outside with Hipcamp.”

Do I need a pro subscription or pro membership to view public land boundaries and cell service maps?

No. Too often outdoor industry apps take advantage of publicly funded open data and obscure it behind “pro” memberships or subscription paywalls. Hipcamp is made by Outdoor Enthusiasts for Outdoor Enthusiasts, and we don’t seek to capitalize on this open data.
