“I have camped at multiple campsites in the Red River Gorge area over the years in every season,” says The Dyrt camper Lauren M. about the Kentucky campground. “This is my all-time favorite place to go. We even got married on Rock Bridge Trail.”
“There’s never been a better time to be a camper,” says The Dyrt CEO Kevin Long. “Because of camping’s explosion in popularity, property managers and private landowners are meeting that demand by expanding their calendars, offering more amenities and adding new types of camping.
