Hipcamp – a fun camping alternative!

My husband & I really enjoy backpacking & tent-camping in the warmer weather. While family campgrounds are plentiful & convenient, we’re currently in the phase where we’d like to have a quieter spot. We often spend most of our trip trying to find a “rustic” or “backwoods” spot & sometimes cave and go to a campground.

This year we stumbled across something new to try – a website called http://www.hipcamp.com (think Air BnB for camping). We found a great spot on a tent platform overlooking a small pond on a person’s land.

This site (web & camping) did not disappoint! The owner was friendly and welcomed us when we first arrived. She had a clean outhouse on site & it was so peaceful! It also was dog-friendly!

While the mosquitoes were out in full force, we had an amazing view & relaxing time, all thanks to hipcamp. If you’re looking for a great/unique camping experience, I recommend you give it a try! Our site even cost less than at a campground!
