Guests register online and the location and campsite details are sent by SMS to their phones. The campsites feature a library, wifi, a small fridge and kitchen area.

This is a great example of people bringing a country pursuit to the city. For more on how people are yearning to connect with their local community, read our Rurban Revolution macrotrend.
