Hipcamp.com - Very Promising Camping Resource

I'm big user and fan of the Alllstays App for finding campgrounds and boondocking possibilities, but this website Hipcamp.com might just be the best such resource at this time. It provides very complete information on public lands campsites and other camping opportunities. Plus, I'm really glad to see that it has formed a cooperative effort among various camping interests to persuade the government to open the public lands reservation system beyond Recreation.gov.


Safe Travels,
Jamu Joe

Hipcamp is a pretty neat web site, never seen it before. I like the map that shows all the campsites in the area. There are some in the KC area that I didn't even know about. We used to live north of Weston, MO when they developed Weston Bend State Park, before the camp sites were added. We tried to get some horse trails put in but were met with resistance.

They seem to be focused on public campgrounds. No rv parks or boondocking locations, like the rad spot you're currently in!

Hipcamp is a really cool concept. One major suggestion: Include a nearby town name of the campsite/park. The only thing i get are geo-ref grid coordinates and a state name on the five I've looked at so far. In other words, HTML 101, make it easy to use.

Otherwise, nice site.

Must be more for the western U.S. scene. I did a search around me and there were plenty places missing.
