The day of calling a campground to reserve a campsite, hoping that there are trees to hang your hammocks and wondering if there will be water nearby, are over thanks to HipCamp.

Although it launched only a couple of years ago, HipCamp hosts listings for thousands of campgrounds across the United States, and they are rolling out a land-sharing program to make it possible to camp close to wherever you are!

HipCamp is a social phenomenon and with a quarter of a million active users and counting, there will soon be images and descriptions along with reviews and recommendations for all listings. ┬áIt’s a beautiful program, and we are looking to get involved.

Look out for updates on Tentsile sites at Oak Mountain State Parks, insights on where to make basecamp for climbing around Alabama, and much more from the Idlewild HipCamp profile!
