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.

It’s day 5 of our 40-day #GetOutAndGO Giveaway, featuring a $200 gift card prize from Beyond Clothing and a chance to enter for the $10,000 grand prize GO Camper package from SylvanSport.

Our fifth stop on the tour is the gorgeous Wissahickon Gorge. Only 11 miles north of Philadelphia, and with public transportation routes to and from the city, there’s no excuse to not #GetOutAndGO.

Wissahickon (pronounced just like it looks) Gorge provides visitors with 57 lush miles of hiking trails over 1,800 acres of green space, including the extremely popular Devil’s Pool.

And, of course, every day of the #GetOutAndGO project you can enter to win the grand prize $10,000 SylvanSport GO camper.

    Ryan leads Growth at The Dyrt. With over 10 years writing and digital community building experience, and even more experience in the outdoors, he is excited about The Dyrt's early trajectory. Ryan, like most people, is an onion (figuratively speaking), and finds byline bios reductive, though useful. He is writing this himself in the third person, and—to him—it feels strange.
