Camping is regulated differently in every state, county and city. Do your homework and make sure you’re compliant with all applicable local laws.
- There may be state, county or local laws that regulate or even prohibit hosting Hipcampers on your property. They’re typically found within zoning regulations, county ordinances, and building codes.
- We expect you to comply with these laws. They can be quite confusing, and your local government or lawyer may not be able to easily interpret how they apply to your specific camping activity. So, please do your research.
- Hipcamp wants to work with you and your local government to clarify these laws and create sensible new ones where they’re needed.
- We believe that more camping is good for local economies, a powerful engine for farm, ranch and land conservation, and also essential to inspire the next generation of people to take care of our planet.
- If your land is part of a land trust or homeowners’ association, you may need to ask permission from or notify certain people or organizations in your area.
