Campsite sharing service expands into Maine

PRESQUE ISLAND, Maine — A New York-based campsite sharing company is expanding into Maine.

Tentrr has built about 30 campsites in Maine since last summer. The company rents out semi-permanent tents on private land using a model that’s similar to Airbnb. The company started in upstate New York in 2015.

Property owners pay a fee to join and receive 80 percent of bookings for use of their land. The sites run about $110 per night. Property owners can earn more by offering additional rental services for activities like kayaking and mountain biking.
