As an Australian Dad who loves to camp with the family, I was excited to try out Hipcamp – an online platform that helps you discover and book unique camping experiences. Here’s my review of Hipcamp, and why I think it’s a great choice for families across the nation who love the outdoors.
Range of Camping Options
Firstly, I was throughly impressed by the range of camping options available on Hipcamp. Whether you’re looking for a private campsite by a tree-lined creek, or a more unique glamping option like a treehouse or retro caravan, Hipcamp has it all. With over 300,000 campsites to choose from, there’s literally something to suit every budget and preference. We chose a beautiful spot in Crescent Head, just beside Racetracks beach. It was a large grassy area encased by trees offering campers plenty of space, and it was signifcantly cheaper than staying at the caravan park in town.
Ease of Booking
Booking through Hipcamp is a breeze. You can search for campsites based on location, type of camping experience, and available amenities, and then book directly through the website. Payment is also handled through the platform, making it a risk-free, reliable and convenient way to book your next camping destination.
Hipcamp also offers a community of outdoor enthusiasts who share their experiences and recommendations. This is a great way to connect with like-minded people and get insider tips on the best places to camp, hike, and explore. You can also join groups based on your interests, such as birdwatching, stargazing, or kayaking.
Unique Camp Grounds
What sets Hipcamp apart from other camping platforms is the range of unique camping experiences on offer. We’ve had some incredible experiences on Hipcamp, from camping on private land with stunning views to glamping in a beautifully decorated yurt. Each campsite is different and offers its own unique experience, making every camping trip a memorable one.
One potential downside of Hipcamp is that some of the more popular sites book up quickly. This means you may need to plan your trip well in advance to secure your preferred campsite. However, with so many options available, you’re sure to find alternatives if your first choice isn’t available.
To book a campsite visit the Hipcamp website and create an account. From here you can browse options, book online and speak directly to your campsite owner to finalise the details of your trip.
Hipcamp Review – Final Word
Overall, Hipcamp is a fantastic platform for anyone in Australia who loves camping. It offers a huge range of camping options, an easy and convenient booking process, a community of outdoor enthusiasts, and unique camping experiences that you won’t find anywhere else, plus it’s less busy and generally cheaper than the more established caravan parks.
Why not give Hipcamp a crack and see where your next camping trip takes you!
