Given that small businesses of all varieties are trying to find new sources of income, a decent number of wineries and farms across the country have opted to offer camping. If you have a particular spot in mind, take a look at their website and social media to see if it’s something they’re advertising (or just call them).

Otherwise, the easiest way to find a place is to use sites like Hipcamp and Harvest Hosts, which operate like Airbnb, but for campsites. It’ll be an adventure, and you could meet some really interesting people. Plus, roughing it might be a little easier with direct access to
