Apply today to join The Dyrt’s elite team of real campers from across the country: the Rangers. Submit your application below.

The Dyrt’s mission is to solve the pain felt by 50 million people searching for a campground online. But we can’t do it alone; we’re a small team. So, we’re building an army of Rangers to lead the charge in our campground review revolution. Together, we can change the way people search for campground, and make camping information more accessible for everyone.

Are you a business that wants to put gear in our Rangers’ hands? Go to The Dyrt product review page.

What is a Ranger on The Dyrt?

Rangers review campsites often, help us shape our technology, and sometimes get gear to review in the field. A Ranger is someone who camps often and is interested in new outdoor gear.

Have you ever felt the pain of searching for camping information online? Do you want to help solve this pain and be a member of an elite camping community across the country?

Rangers know how hard it can be to find camping information, and they want to help solve the problem.

How does the Ranger program work?

When you become a Ranger, you join our community of Rangers from across the country. As part of our elite Ranger community, we’ll ask you to do monthly initiatives to help us make camping even better.

We might ask you to search for campgrounds in a state you’ve never been to and then ask you: What info is missing you wish we had? We might ask for suggestions of a nonprofit that could have the biggest impact on improving access to camping. We might ask you to tell us a story about a time you got lost in the woods, or about the greatest moment you ever had camping. We would then build your stories and responses into The Dyrt. We might ask you to test gear and review products at campgrounds as a Ranger Review. See examples of that below.

Meet Rangers on The Dyrt

Our current class of Rangers are the originals — most have been with us since the beginning.

They’ve helped us shape the website and mobile apps, they’ve reviewed thousands of campgrounds, and they helped us launch our Ranger Review program.

The Dyrt Ranger Jen G.

Jen and her husband Brady started a blog about their adventures called The Wild Groves. She’s based in Sandy, Utah. Active on Instagram and Twitter. We asked her to take some gear into the field and write a review, and this is her Ranger Review of OOFOS sandals at Indian Cove Campground, CA.

The Dyrt Ranger Dave V.

Dave spends 70-100 nights outside each year. He is a veteran living in Florida. He posts regularly on Instagram and Twitter. He is a Ranger Review extraordinaire: read his Ranger Review from when he took Klymit’s Static V sleeping pad to Grindstone Campground, VA.

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 growth and 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.
