About The Dyrt

The Dyrt is the fastest-growing camping app with more than 100,000 user generated campground reviews, photos, and videos. We’re successfully changing the way 45+ million Americans search for campgrounds, just like Yelp changed the way we look for restaurants. Through user-generated reviews, The Dyrt is building an ever-expanding database of campgrounds across the country, making it easy and enjoyable for campers to find the information they need.

The Dyrt also works with outdoor brands to build communities and help them connect with customers. The Dyrt provides the perfect platform for campers to find their next favorite campsite and for brands to engage with their target audience. The Dyrt produces stories for those brands on The Dyrt Magazine. It’s important that these sponsored stories are offering value to our readers and value to our partners, while also aligning with our own brand.
