'Hipcamp' is a public and private campsite app that will take all the stress out of planning your next camping trip. The site was created by Eric Bach and Alyssa Ravasio, who felt that there was no streamlined service for finding and booking appropriate campsites. To combat the issue of fragmentation, Bach and Ravasio created a handy app for finding public and private camping accommodations.

The app is extremely easy to use and allows you to simply search for campsites based on location. However, what really sets the campsite location app apart is the ability to track down and book a private campsite.

Similar to the idea behind 'AirBnB,' the Hipcamp app allows landowners to rent out a portion of their property to campers as a way to earn extra income while still conserving their land. The service is beneficial for both parties in that campers have access to a whole new host of camping spots and landowners have a new way of diversifying their income.
