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.

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, enjoy a Glacier campground review from The Dyrt camper Deanna C. Will yours be next?


The kids are heading back to school soon, and the occasional cool day is sneaking into the forecast.

Some us can’t wait to pull a soft sweater over our heads and watch the leaves change. Others are scrambling for ways to soak up those last rays of hot summer sun. Either way, the changing of seasons give us even more reasons to get outside.

(And did we mention there’s still plenty of time to win free camping gear?)

The anthology was definitely a scam to get her parents to buy a bunch of anthologies, but she's still pretty proud of her panda poem. When she's not at her computer, she's (hopefully) outside, hiking or camping with her dog.
