With three bookings under my belt, I can confidently recommend Hipcamp to anyone looking for a unique outdoor experience. Hipcamp’s mission is to ‘get more people outside,’ and serves as a marketplace for people to discover and book tent camping, RV parks, cabins, treehouses, and glamping—everywhere from national parks to blueberry farms.
It’s a great alternative to the terrible user experience of booking a campsite through a government agency’s website. So far, I’ve found the hosts on Hipcamp to be extremely welcoming as one would expect from a private campground or an Airbnb. Though the prices vary and are often higher than a traditional public campsite, the convenience and service is well worth it!
Situated on off of a two-lane highway in Williams, Arizona and just 30-minutes from Grand Canyon National Park, this Hipcamp listing called the High Country Tumbleweeds Campsite was easily accessible yet decently private. My group enjoyed the ranch vibes and stargazing by the firepit ahead of our trip to the park. And like my past Hipcamp experiences, the host was extremely communicative from booking to check out.
