With my the first total eclipse on the horizon and set to happen this Monday, August 21, a lot of moon over sun watchers are arranging camping trips to get the best look at the astronomical wonder!
But also with the eclipse being so close away, public campgrounds, hotels, and Airbnbs are either all booked up or charging exorbitant rates for the last available spots.
Unbooked spots are few and far between—let alone affordable ones.
Enter Hipcamp [https://www.hipcamp.com]—a startup that creates new campsites by unlocking access to beautiful private lands such as nature preserves, farms, and ranches. With over 1,000 new campsites (and counting) unlocked in the eclipse “path of totality”.
Hipcamp has just compiled a list of their top 23 unbooked campgrounds offering spots for $25 to $87 — everything under $100.
The site also has the most comprehensive map of all camping options in the path [http://hipcamp.com/discover/
Plus, the solar eclipse is really a great natural phenomenon….
Where better to experience it than in nature?
