Let’s be honest – the reservation system at California State Parks isn’t the most user friendly experience. That’s all about to change with the state parks’ partnership with Hipcamp. Now, you can easily book your trips online.
Whether youâ€™re researching campgrounds in the Bay Area’sÂ Mount Diablo State ParkÂ orÂ up north in Castle Crags State Park, simply check out the Hipcamp park pages to see what park and private campsites are available on various dates. You can take a look at photos, read reviews, and then pick the site that works best for you, either booking a private site directly on Hipcamp or getting directed toÂ ReserveCaliforniaÂ to make a state park reservation.
The partnership aims to make getting into the wilderness easier for the whole family as well as inspiring the future generation of outdoor adventurers.
â€œAs the pandemic continues, people are craving a deeper connection to the outdoors and the need to be outside has never been more important,â€ Hipcamp founder and CEO Alyssa Ravasio says. â€œOpen data unlocks access to public land to a greater, more diverse group of people and helps Hipcampers avoid overcrowding. This integration comes at a transformative time and weâ€™re so excited to have California State Parks as a part of the Hipcamp community.â€
From the North Coast to the Shasta Cascade, and all the way down through Tahoe and the Eastern Sierra, there are so many great opportunities to get outdoors. Make your adventure just a little bit easier by booking your state park campsite on Hipcamp. Check out the full list of California State Parks on Hipcamp, as well as photos and reviews here.
