You might be asking yourself, what types of Hosts is Hipcamp looking for? Our mission is to get people outside, so we’re looking for landowners that help support that.

Here are a few indicators a landowner is a good fit for Hipcamp:

1. Location — is the land close to a…

  • National park, state park, or national forest?
  • Swimmable water body, like a lake, river, hot spring, waterfall, or the ocean?
  • An outdoor activity, such as fly fishing, rock climbing, river rafting, hiking, stargazing?

2. Nature features — does the land have…

  • More than 5 acres?
  • A water body, like a lake, river, hot spring, on it?
  • Good views?
  • A secluded spot in the woods?
  • Rolling hills or peaceful meadows?
  • Hiking trails?

3. Uniqueness — does the land have…

  • Great spot to pitch a tent?
  • Working farm? Orchard? Ranch?
  • Farm animals?
  • Cute cabin or treehouse?
  • Glamping structure, like a yurt, canvas tent, dome, or converted bus?

4. Bonus amenities — does the land have…

  • Fire pit?
  • Toilet?
  • Drinking water?
  • Outdoor shower?
  • Picnic table?
  • Communal kitchen?
  • Pet-friendly policy?

These are just rough guidelines, so if your friend has something not listed here, don’t worry—we’d still love for them to sign up. We’re always looking to partner with new and unique landowners in our mission to create new places to get outside.

 

How do I explain Hipcamp to others?

 

Hipcamp connects landowners who want to keep their land undeveloped with responsible, ecologically-minded campers. In doing this, we can use recreation to fund the conservation of this land.

Campers can search and discover privately-owned land by location, amenities or activities, across the US.
