Campspace is a startup that allows consumers to rent private land like back yards for unique outdoor experiences, bringing camping into the 21st Century

The world can be anyone's back yard—even when it's technically someone else's. Netherlands-based startup Campspace allows campers to search and book sites that are privately owned, including plenty of homeowners' back yards.

The startup's goal is to make camping available for adventurers anywhere in the world, democratizing the experience for those who don't have access to of the budget for traditional sites. Offering the opportunity to explore and experience new locations across Europe and North America, Campspace is an entirely new kind of sharing economy service.

The platform connects homeowners, or hosts, with campers, or scouts. Users can search campsites based on both camping style and location. The site also lists getaways by themed categories, like romantic camping and city escapes. Much like other booking sites, costs, reviews and photos are front and center. Other amenities, like hot water and stoves, are included as well.

Campspace is shifting camping into a more personalized experience, disrupting a category that has remained the same for decades. As campers become more tech-savvy, so will their tools—and Campspace is a look into that future.
