At The Dyrt, we share camping tips from our community of campers and campgrounds. With so many campers staying home, we continue to share this info so you can plan future camping trips across the U.S.

Deep within the rugged and wet terrain of the Pacific Northwest lives a beast named Sasquatch. While some say this animal is just a cryptid, like a unicorn or the Lochness Monster, many claim to have seen his lumbering figure in the distance, or heard his beastly cry, just outside their tents. There are even videos to prove it.

If you’re drawn to the mystery of this mythical creature, you’ll need to be prepared for the fog, rain, and chill of the region Sasquatch calls home.
