Want to RV or Camp in a Garden? Try Gamping!

A look at Gamping.com and the popularity of garden RVing and camping

Gamping.com gives you the chance to try out garden RVing. Gamping.com

​The world is full of unique campgrounds, parks and sites. It seems like there is almost a limitless number to choose from which is great for most campers but you do run into a few issues. The quality campsites are usually packed out, especially during peak season. This goes not only for the United States but for most of the developed world.

Also when you get out of the United States you may find that there are less options when it comes to a decent site. You don’t want to be driving around the English countryside and jamming your RV into a tight camp or not have a decent place to stay close to a favorite vineyard in Napa Valley right?

Well, luckily for RVers around the world, Gamping.com offers a unique experience hardly found in the RVing world. So what is Gamping.com all about? We’ll explore gamping as an alternative to traditional RV sites including what the organization is about, how they work as well as the types of sites that Gamping.com can offer up.

What is Gamping.com?

Gamping, or garden camping, and their associated website Gamping.com offer a unique alternative to traditional RV camps and sites. The concept is simple. If a property owner has a location or site they hardly find themselves using, such as a farm, vineyard, private beach or any location, they can choose to rent out the space to campers and RVers.

This is great to RVers for many reasons. Many RVers prefer privacy when on their excursions and you’re not likely to find privacy in popular camping locations, especially close to popular locales. Instead of renting a space at an RV park near the Grand Canyon that you know will be crowded, you might instead opt to choose Gamping.com to find a location that is just as close but with one private site.

Gamping.com is also great if you’re trying to find a location that may not be near traditional RV or camping sites. Say you’ll be fishing in a more remote location in Montana or trying to find a great place to stay in the rolling hills of Ireland. These areas may not have RV sites near but Gamping.com may have a private landowner nearby who is more than happy to rent their private space to you.

Gamping is also great for budget travelers. Many of their private sites are free of charge but most come with charges that will still be much less than traditional sites. You may have to sacrifice in amenities when it comes to some of these private sites but to many RVers, the low cost and privacy is well worth it.
