In these increasingly warm days, it’s all about working al fresco. Enter Campsyte’s Outcamp, a new venture that bills itself as San Francisco’s first outdoor shared workspace.

In addition to typical office amenities—printing, wifi, complimentary coffee, even kombucha and beer on tap—this SoMa-based space comes with private camper trailers (named Sandy, Betsy, and George) and tree tents. It also boasts a fire pit, a barbecue grill, and a kitchen stocked with snacks, Philz Coffee, Black Hammer beer, and more.

Located in a converted private parking lot at 9 Frelon, near Fourth and Brannan, it sits near noted artwork by muralists Ian Ross, Ricky Watts, and Antoine Marnata.

Space inside the camp can be rented out for $5/hour, $11/day, or $33/month.

Campsyte also offers conference rooms in repurposed and furnished shipping containers.

The shared co-working space market has turned into a multi-billion dollar industry over the last couple of years. WeWork, for example, currently worth an estimated $16 billion, has several spots in San Francisco and plans on opening their first Oakland spot later this year.
