Ravasio knows camping. As the
founder and CEO of Hipcamp
— an online service that books
campsites on private property,
public parkland, and Army Corps
of Engineers campgrounds
nationwide — Ravasio has been
“getting more people outside”
since 2013. Here she shares
tips for making your summer
camping trip a breeze.
1 Escape the Crowds Find your zen with midweek
micro-adventures. Mare Island Preserve, Kirby
Cove, Angel Island — lots of camping areas are
accessible by public transportation or even a short
2 Work from Nature Search for a spot with Wi-Fi
(filter for this feature on Hipcamp) and small cabins
or other structures with amenities, and you’ve got
yourself an outdoor office for the length of your stay.
3 No Tent, No Problem Find places with amenities
provided — aka glamping (you can filter for this as
well) — and don’t be deterred by lack of gear: some
local companies offer affordable equipment and
apparel rental. Try the Alite Ranger Station or Last
4 Get Close You can explore Yosemite or other
national parks without staying inside the park. Find
the best camping near national parks at Hipcamp.
5 Beyond the Bay New Cuyama, in Santa Barbara
County, is just four hours south of the Bay Area and
has incredible camping and outdoor access.
6 Dream Big Create a nature or camping goals list to
push yourself to get outdoors more.
7 Traffic Sucks Leave before 3 p.m. on Friday or
before 7 a.m. on Saturday.
8 Beat the Heat Driving even an hour out of
the Bay Area can land you in 80- to 100-degree
weather. Find water and camp near it.
9 Don’t Overthink Look for last-minute options on
Hipcamp; thousands of new acres for camping are
added every month across the U.S.
Name Your Namaste
Yoga may be a familiar part of the Bay Area fitness landscape,
but not everyone signs up to practice. If the usual poses haven’t felt
right, one of these hybrid classes might. KIER HOLMES
