The Dyrt, the No. 1 app for camping information and booking, has announced the 2023 Best Places to Camp: Top 10 in the U.S. based on reviews and ratings from its vast community of campers. Campsites run the gamut of what makes camping so popular.

The Dyrt, the top app for all things related to camping, recently unveiled its list of the Best Places to Camp in 2023: Top 10 in the U.S., based on ratings and reviews from campers. As usual, these campsites have something for everyone – from great scenery, to convenient amenities.

“If you ask 10 people their favorite thing about camping, you might get 10 different answers,” says Sarah Smith, founder of The Dyrt. “Whether your favorite campsite is up in the mountains, beside the ocean, in the middle of the desert or close to a big city, they can all offer once-in-a-lifetime experiences and become your favorite memories. Our annual Best Places to Camp list recognizes campgrounds that are truly next level and resonate with a wide variety of people.”

Over the past three years, Alabama Hills Recreation Area has been included on The Dyrt’s national Top 10 list of Best Places to Camp. Meanwhile, Palo Duro Canyon State Park, Goblin Valley State Park, and Many Glacier Campground have each made their way onto the list twice. All four locations were ranked either at the first or second spot in The Dyrt’s Best Places to Camp Regional Awards that were announced back in May.

“Every day that goes by, The Dyrt community of campers keeps adding more photos, reviews and general information that further clarifies and captures the essence of camping in the United States,” says Kevin Long, CEO of The Dyrt. “Releasing this list each summer is one of our favorite things to do. It’s the culmination of another year of campers generously sharing their knowledge to help other campers optimize their own adventures and make the most of their time in the great outdoors.”
