From what i have gathered hipcamp.com is like AirBandB for campers with people sharing a few spots on private property for nice rates and with limited accommodations.

It also appears they are sliding around shutdown orders as several places are currently accepting reservations.


I searched this forum and found very little discussion about it.

Hipcamp seems to be encouraging travel for their own profit.

Not familiar with them but I say more power to them.

If they are taking reservations for locations where such reservations are prohibited, it says a lot about the integrity of the website and the individuals who are renting those sites.

Not sure if that's the case- In my area state parks are closed, private campgrounds have a lot of restriction regarding activities (like don't have any)

But there are no travel restrictions so if an owner or private property allows you to drive on and his property and camp it probably falls within the rule.


I'm looking for pre-zombie apocalypse feedback on the service.

Private property owners offering one or two camp sites are not necessarily doing anything contrary to social distancing. I don't see a problem. But I suppose anyone who thinks dogmatically that all campers need to stay home, period, would have a problem with this.
