5 Inspiring Camping Pics to Get You Outside!

We view the outdoors as sacred places of exploration and adventure, and we're pretty sure you do, too. Our meals fuel this adventure, and we want to provide some more fuel for you: 5 pictures to inspire you to pack your packs and hit the trail.

All these images are from our contests on The Dyrt, one for Illinoisand one for Wisconsin. Anyone who’s ever camped in these two states can enter our contests by submitting campsites reviews to TheDyrt.com. Submitting a review automatically enters you to win a contest, and at the same time you’re helping us make camping even better. Winners each receive a 5-Day Food Kit, and September is the last month of our contests!

Because these images are all user-submitted, that means they’re from real people just like you and me. They have dedicated their summers to exploring the outdoors from their campsites. Here’s to following in their footsteps!
