Book a camping trip through Airbnb

The world's largest vacation rental site is filled with people who are more than happy to let you pitch a tent in their backyard, as well as small independent campgrounds that promote listings on the site, too.

All you have to do is plug in your desired location and filter for campsites specifically. You can still find plenty of the unique experiences that Airbnb is famous for, like camping on a farm in Maine or in a riverside meadow in California.

Although you won't be able to find a private campsite inside a national or state park, you can still find campsites close to the entrance like this well-stocked campground just 7 miles from Utah's Zion National Park or this beautiful forest-adjacent field just 10 minutes Washington's Olympia National Park.

Pros: It's familiar and if you've built up a high rating as an Airbnb guest, you might be more inclined to stay on the platform.

Cons: It's not commonly known as a place to list campsites, so it may not offer a good representation of all the private campgrounds in the area. Additionally, service, cleaning, and occupancy taxes may be applied to the total bill.
