Hipcamp

This ordinance change was sparked after an illegal campground was posted on Hipcamp.

About 70 people gathered in front of a northern Cambria, Calif., home on Oct. 2 to learn more about possible additions to San Luis Obispo County’s camping regulations, according to The Tribune.

If approved, the modifications covered in a draft document could affect their neighborhood and the entire county. As currently drafted, adding “incidental outdoor stays” would allow for permanent or temporary camping facilities on privately owned residential, agricultural and rural properties as small as one acre. That would include properties offering campsites via the popular site Hipcamp.

That size parcel could accommodate up to two campsites, according to the proposal. The draft would allow up to 15 campsites on parcels of 30 acres or more.
