WHY IT RATES: When trying to find the perfect campsite for your vacation, the Hipcamp has travelers covered.—Donald Wood, Breaking News Senior Writer.
Today, Hipcamp announced the launch of its mobile app, designed to help people discover and book camping, “glamping”, and RV experiences on over 300,000 campsites across America. Released just ahead of Memorial Day weekend — the kickoff to camping’s busiest season — the Hipcamp app unlocks access to hidden, undiscovered private camping destinations on vineyards, ranches, and farms, as well as detailed information for popular public parks and outdoor attractions.
From remote, romantic treehouses to basecamps near the most-visited national parks, Hipcamp is the most comprehensive camping resource in the US, offering unique outdoor experiences for new and seasoned campers alike.

“Our mission is to get more people outside, and as everyone starts planning for summer camping season, we wanted to create a resource that makes getting outside simple, straightforward, and fun,” said Hipcamp Founder and CEO Alyssa Ravasio. “With our new mobile app, you can now plan your next outdoor adventure entirely on the go. Whether you’re booking a private campsite on an apple orchard or setting up a trip to a state or national park, we’re making it easier than ever to get outside.”
Some of the app’s key features:
—One-of-a-kind camping experiences: By partnering with private landowners, Hipcamp showcases hidden, off-the-beaten-path outdoor experiences entirely unique to the hosts who create them. From camping on private vineyards to glamping in cozy cabins, Hipcamping is entirely personal, always memorable, and never cookie-cutter.
—Filtering for every travel need: Looking for a pet-friendly RV site near Yosemite? Glamping in the Great Smoky Mountains over Thanksgiving? Group campsites for 30+ people right on the Pacific Ocean? The Hipcamp app filters campsites and lodging according to your travel needs, including price, group size, structure type, pet-friendliness, amenities (from toilets to outdoor kitchens), and access to activities such as hiking, fishing, and surfing.
—Detailed information on public and private campsites: In addition to private campsites, Hipcamp shares real-time campsite availability on federal land, including sites in America’s most beloved national parks. We’ll help you nab that last-minute federal campsite if it’s available. If not, we’ll help you find an amazing alternative on private land nearby.
“Hipcamp has completely changed the way I camp. It’s connected me to places I’d otherwise never go, people I’d never meet, and adventures I’ve always dreamed of. Now that there’s an app, planning my next trip will be even easier. I can’t wait to check it out,” said Hipcamper Brian Dawson.
