Every week we’re rounding up camping and outdoor news, along with stories you might have missed from The Dyrt Magazine and around the web. This week, we feature a helpful Idyllwild camping review from an explorer on The Dyrt. Your contributions could be featured next week!

It seems like just yesterday that fireworks were lighting up the sky and already, August is here. Cue end of summer panic: Have you gone camping yet?!

There’s plenty of time, of course. And campers continue to offer so much inspiration for future camping trips, in the form of campground reviews and photos on The Dyrt. Those campers are also winning some pretty sweet gear from our brand partners. (Here’s the scoop on our 2018 Great Camping Giveaway.)

Now that you’re frantically searching for campgrounds to fill the final weeks of summer, here’s some more inspiration and news about camping and the outdoors, from The Dyrt and around the web:
