Devastating wildfires are once again sweeping through California, Oregon, Colorado, and the entire Western United States, affecting nearly every county in the state with poor air quality and disrupting livelihoods well beyond the active fire zones. Communities have lost family, homes, land, and livelihoods, and many more are being evacuated.
As in years past, we’re working with our Host partners to help those who may need assistance during this time. Below is a list of Hipcamp Hosts who are willing to host fire-displaced evacuees and animals free of charge.
Evacuees should contact these Hipcamp Hosts directly via Hipcamp to learn more about what they are providing (Click the ‘Have a question?’ button on their listing page). Evacuees can then get in touch with the Hipcamp support team to get a unique discount code to stay at these Hipcamps at no charge.
