Re: Best (backountry) camping site for bringing your own gear?

Currently looking into trying a new approach to camping, ususally stay at state parks, and have heard about HipCamp and Tentrr. Has anyone tried either survice? I'm cuious about which you would recommend. I usually bring one medium/standard pop-up tent, and a clip backpack along with my boyfriend's.

hey! i have used Tentrr in the Poconos. The way i used them was threw AirBnb. amazing site but primitive. Tent, table, 5 gallons of water and a portable Loo. It was amazing spent 4 nights there. Let me know if you have any more specific questions


Oh wow, what amazing pictures! The grill does look a bit primitive. Would you say for the price paid you were happy with the accomodations? Looking to book on the East Coast as well this month. 


I was very happy with the price, these days it’s hard to find a quiet campground on the east coast. I would go back too


Just went on my first stay this past weekend! Settled on Morning rise in NY. Was happy to know what was included from your answer, we just stayed 2 nights. I got 15 off with this code tentrr15, figured it could help you out if you're planning on going again 🙂
