Would-be campers can enter to win a getaway until Aug. 15, 2022, and winners will be selected at random.
Winners will receive an overnight stay at one of five Hipcamp sites that have been fully outfitted with REI-curated gear, available for purchase at the scan of an onsite QR code. They’ll also be able to share the experience with a friend or family member.
"Imagine arriving at a seaside ranch or an incredible mountain vista to find your campsite set up and waiting with your dream list of gear," said Hipcamp Head of Partnerships Kristen Vasan. "We see an opportunity to create more magical experiences by surprising and delighting Hipcampers with gear and amenities that will make their trip unforgettable. We’re thrilled to collaborate with REI by delivering some of the most popular outdoor gear to campers at our one-of-a-kind Hipcamp sites."
REI and Hipcamp conducted extensive user research before determining which gear to include at #SaveASpot Hipcamp sites. Based on that research, each site will include basecamp essentials for sleeping, cooking, relaxing, and exploring. Because the majority of campers named stargazing and hiking as a few of their favorite camping activities, winners of the giveaway can look forward to onsite telescopes, stargazing guides, and a quick-reference book for mushroom foraging.
Additionally, every Hipcamp site will include:
The SOLO bonfire pit
Kuju Coffee pour-over pods
Selk’bag wearable sleeping bags
A GoPro camera
A Matador towel, stuff sack, and waterproof canister
"Hipcamp has enabled a better solution to book incredible campsites across the nation," said Rachael Minucciani, REI strategic brand partnerships. "We're excited to spread the joy of camping by surprising a few campers with some of the best gear available to help make their adventure comfortable and enjoyable."
Winners will stay at one of the following sites:
