The staff here at The Dyrt works hard to ensure that our users find the best campgrounds in beautiful places around the U.S. Most of us at The Dyrt are here because, like you, we are passionate about camping and getting outside as often as possible. The editorial staff decided to give a sneak peek
into The Dyrt staff’s favorite campgrounds to showcase the places we’re dreaming about on and off the clock.
The Dyrt Staff’s Favorite Campgrounds
Listed below are some of The Dyrt staff’s favorite campgrounds. This isn’t everyone, but we hope you enjoy getting to know us a little better.
Riverside Campground—Mt. Hood National Forest, OR
“I love camping along the Clackamas River in the Mt Hood National Forest. There are quite a few campgrounds along the river but Riverside is my favorite. You can camp right on the bank of the river and listen to the water go by all night. Plus is fairly easy to get to from Portland.” — Sarah Smith, CEO
Cape Lookout State Park—Tillamook, OR
“Cape Lookout State Park. Close to the ocean, close to the oysters: Nevør Shellfish Farm is right outside the park and sells oysters by the bag. Nothing like shuckin’ around the campfire.” — Ryan Fliss, Chief Marketing Officer
Umbagog Lake State Park—Errol, NH
“Umbagog is a unique experience because you are dropped off at your campsite from a boat! You are welcome to bring along kayaks, hammocks, pets, and as many supplies as you want which allows for a remote yet comfortable camping experience.” — Maggie Fisher, Production Coordinator
Mathews Arm—Shenandoah National Park
“Mathews Arm campground in Shenandoah National Park—I love it because it’s right off the blue ridge parkway, has awesome stargazing and you’ll usually see some black bears roaming the surrounding woods.” — Kevin Johnson, Assistant Editor
Alabama Hills Recreation Area—Lone Pine, CA
“Alabama Hills Recreation Area in Lone Pine, California. It’s BLM land (so free camping) that’s beautiful high desert. Many westerns have been shot there and it’s a short drive up to the eastern sierras.” — Taylor Kalsey, Production Coordinator
Marion Lake Campground—Willamette National Forest, OR
“Marion Lake – Central OR – 3-5 mile hike into the Cascade Range to reach a lightly populated alpine lake with mountain views, hiking, fishing, relaxing in the summer sun and fresh air.” — Mark Friess
L.L. Stub Stewart State Park—Buxton, OR
“L.L. Stub Stewart State Park in Buxton, OR. Love the cabins and biking along the adjacent Banks-Vernonia State Trail.” — Tanya Bushnell, Community Manager
Tawas Point State Park—Tawas City, MI
“When I think about camping, the first thing that comes to mind is family trips while growing up in Michigan. Every summer a large group of us would car camp at Tawas Point State Park to enjoy Lake Huron, beaches, catching frogs and watching the sunset.” — Jenn McHale Marin, Senior Product Designer
Polebridge—Glacier National Park, MT
“I love camping in Polebridge, MT. Saw the northern lights come out while dancing to a local band” — Anthony Easton, Head of Audience Development
We hope you find inspiration from our favorite campgrounds. And of course, happy camping–from all of us at The Dyrt!
