With the eclipse just around the corner, public campgrounds, hotels, and Airbnbs are either all booked up or charging exorbitant rates for the last available spots. Unbooked spots are few and far between—let alone affordable ones.
Enter Hipcamp—a startup that creates new campsites by unlocking access to beautiful private lands such as nature preserves, farms, and ranches. With over 1,000 new campsites (and counting) unlocked in the eclipse “path of totality”, Hipcamp has just compiled a list of their top 23 unbooked campgrounds offering spots for $25 to $87 — everything under $100. They also have the most comprehensive map of all camping options in the path.
Where better to experience this natural phenomenon than in nature?
“This is a huge deal. It’s the first coast to coast solar eclipse in 99 years in the US. This is a pretty special thing.” —Alyssa Ravasio, Hipcamp CEO
