Hipcamp makes it easy to list, discover, and book camping, glamping, and RV accommodations on private and public land.

One of our core beliefs is that people who are connected and aligned with nature are happier and healthier humans. Our mission is to get more people outside. We accomplish this by making nature more accessible, creating revenue to support the protection of land, and creating community across the urban-rural divide.

Working at Hipcamp

    • We take team camping trips together, have a stocked gear library and access to pro deals at various outdoor brands.
    • Our sunny, plant-filled office is located at 965 Mission St. close to the Powell BART station.
    • We hope you have a (well-behaved) dog to bring to our office.
    • We love sunlight, plants, the enneagram test, avocados, smoked salmon, bitchin’ sauce and hope you do too.
