Click on a Campsite: Website Opens Up Private Land to Campers
A Portland startup online at LandApart.com is expanding the share-economy Airbnb-model concept to private landowners and campers. People that want to camp or rent a cabin in a beautiful area can pay a private landowner for access. CEO Ven Gist says the move is in part a response to sometimes crowded public lands that often cannot be reserved. He says, “We’re basically collaborating with landowners to open up new wild spaces that people can find and book for truly secluded, unique outdoor experiences.” Prices average between $30 and $40 per night.
