Introducing the Airbnb of Camping

In recent months we've introduced you to companies aiming to be the Airbnb of RVs and the Airbnb of boats. Now we'd like to introduce you to the Airbnb of camping.

It's a startup called Hipcamp, which lets you select campsites from among 280,000 options across the country. You can stay in glamorous yurts, on rustic nature preserves and working farms, and even in Airstream trailers. All the necesary tent pitching and sleeping-bag schlepping is taken care of before you get there.

The service seems ideal for those who want to commune with nature without feeling like they've been in combat with it.
