About Us

Purple Tent is an online marketplace that connects local landowners with travelers looking for an affordable place to rest for the evening.


Our founders grew up managing a family camping business. We noticed that a large percentage of our tent campers were travelers who chose to stay with us because the campground met their few fundamental needs: affordability, safety, convenience, and privacy! We realized it’s not easy to find a place that checks all these boxes, so we created Purple Tent.


Hosting travelers and providing memorable experiences is fulfilling, and we believe everyone deserves this opportunity.
