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.

2016. What a year. A lot has happened. In the political world, in the tech world, in the entertainment world — everything looks very different coming out of 2016 than it did going in.

One thing that’s remained relatively the same: camping, and our love for it.

And we’re not alone. You all make The Dyrt what it is: a community of campers and outdoor enthusiasts who know what’s important in life and how to prioritize it. And you’ve come out in droves, making The Dyrt the fastest-growing camping web app (soon to be the top mobile camping app in 2017… more on that soon).

So, we want to celebrate camping, getting out there, and enjoying the best parts of nature.

Here are the top 8 most popular camping images from our Instagram in 2016.

Looking back on how many people have liked, commented, and shared these posts with their friends, we can’t help but feel grateful to have found such a passionate community of outdoors enthusiasts.
