Tents, stoves, sleeping bags — “camping gear” usually refers to the same thing.

So, normally when I say “the best new camping gear,” I am about to tell you about a new tent or a new chair — almost always a small design tweak or a new color.

But in 2020 when I say “new,” I really mean it. The best new camping gear is something so new you might not even consider it when you are preparing to hit the road.

It’s an app. And it lets you search for sites without service or WiFi.

The Best New Camping Gear of 2020

For the first time ever, you can turn your phone or iPad into an offline campsite finder with The Dyrt PRO.

What is The Dyrt PRO? The Dyrt is the #1 camping app in the App Store and Google Play, and PRO takes it to another level. Imagine having every campsite, every review, and every tip from campers who have ever camped anywhere in the US — all of it downloaded to your phone so every camping option in the U.S. is always available, regardless of no service or WiFi.

PRO solves the pains of trip planning and last-minute cancellations, and connects you to hundreds of thousands of campsites and reviews across the U.S.

At just $29, it is cheaper than almost every piece of gear in your kit—yet it may just be the most essential.

“I have been using it for a while now and absolutely love it. I use it to plan all of our adventures.” —Scott, The Dyrt PRO user.
