Camping Starts Here

It all started with a love of the outdoors and a desire to make camping easier for everyone.

However you camp — in a tent, trailer, RV, or cabin — we’re committed to helping you have the best camping experiences possible. Here you’ll find resources and connections to the most active camping community in the world. Welcome to The Dyrt.

The Dyrt is for campers, by campers, and we are built on the contributions from our community.

Meet Our Founder, Sarah Smith

Camping is a source of joy for Sarah, since childhood. She grew up in the north woods of Minnesota and spent hours exploring, picking berries, camping and fishing. The Dyrt was born through her desire to help make camping easier for everyone. Sarah has the unique ability to inspire others through the collective power of people — demonstrated through The Dyrt’s loyal community. Sarah was named to the 2022 Inc. Female Founders 100 list of the top women entrepreneurs in the world.

    We Believe in Sharing

    Not only can we take better care of the places we love, we can also help others fall in love with them. The outdoors are for everyone, so we should all be able to find our spot and be equipped to camp responsibly. As always, Leave No Trace (LNT).
