$8,000 Cairn Gift Card Camping Giveaway

June 30, 2016 | 19 comments

Summer is here and so is camping season. And this year, Cairn is teaming up with TheDyrt.com to make it the best season yet!  We're pumped to be a part of the $100,000 Great Camping Giveaway on TheDyrt.com where you can earn points and win prizes for submitting useful campground reviews.

Here at Cairn, our Crew is always ready to share opinions and tips with each other about regional campsites. While some keep detailed notes on backcountry locations and accessibility options based on river levels, some of us are experts on campsites within walking distance of a cool brewery.  Hey, we all have our priorities.  

Camping in the Forest

Cairn Crew Megan found a fairytale location to set up camp.

As outdoor enthusiasts, we think it’s high time that we all work together to end the pain of searching online for a campground. We’re stoked for these camping contests with TheDyrt.com because it's infinitely easier to find a great place to pitch a tent when you can see photos and videos of the places you want to go.

Cairn is giving away $8,000 in gift cards through two of the contests:

Every month this summer (June–September), the top 10 reviewers for each state (Texas or Washington) will each get a $100 Cairn gift card. What's really cool is that you can follow your progress on the state leaderboards, which reset each month. With $8,000 in gift cards, 10 winners each month, and four months to win, your chances of winning are pretty good!  And even if you can't participate in the Texas or Washington contests, some of our favorite outdoor brands are giving away sweet prizes for contests in other states.  

Dog Friendly Campsites

Sometimes finding a campsite can be ruff, according to Cairn Dog Tubb.

So get out your recent camping photos or embark on new camping adventures (hey, just one more excuse to get outside).  Then submit your experiences to our contests and watch yourself move up the leaderboard. A $100 Cairn gift card means you’ll end the summer with four free boxes of Cairn awesomeness!

What's the #1 thing you look for in a campsite?  Let us know in the comments below.

My dream campsite will be close to a source of moving water, in a flat patch of grass under a grove of trees… Any water, any amount of grass & any type of tree. ??

Far enough from crowds that my son with autism can roam safely and not bother people. Close enough to people for someone to get help should we ever need it, as a single mom I idealize safety and privacy while I commune with nature and revitalize.

I’ll camp anywhere with a view with a growler! Bonus if it’s quiet & near water, as my pup and I love to cool off and do some fishing!
Cheers!

MUST be able to bring the pup!
MUST have 30 amp hookup for my T@B! (Especially in Texas in the summer!)
MUST have water, hiking, or some other fun things for my tweenager with 2 trees close enough together for me to hang up my hammock!

My campsite could be anywhere in nature/wilderness/forest, but I prefer somewhere by pine trees and in or near mountains—I love the sound of the wind in pine trees!! There is no better lullaby.
Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness is my favorite place for camping (paddling and portaging)!!!

My campsite must have “my Family”. The most beautiful stream, majestic views, freshest air, softest grass always comes up a little empty if I camp without my wife, children and dog. Family and friends make it all worthwhile, as the memories grow and take on a life of their own, when relived with those that share your campsite.

My number one is access to a stream – Fly fishing is always on the list and being able to fish right from camp is a huge plus!

Beside a stream or ocean. I love the sound of water and the activity of the wildlife. Its a constant, consistent thing you can count on-moving water….consistency is so rare in todays world. Lots of privacy and trees. Plus, the dog MUST be welcome.

The pups MUST be allowed, shady spot, stream or lake, roomy camp spots = perfection. We’ve found that state run campground’s are much better than the private.

The first thing I look for in a camp spot is a safe way to exit if trouble should come. You can never be too safe. The next thing is a place to find solitude and peace. With the hussle and bussle of the crazy wold around us I need a place to center myself. An awesome view of sun rise and sun set are a must!

My very first choice anywhere is to pitch camp near a stream or lake because sound mesmerizes me to sleep. My only other important hope is that it is remote enough to only run into another 4 or 5 other quiet, respectful hikers to share the night sky and the night sounds with. ;D

I have three things I look for in a camping spot: hiking trails, water source and no primitive spots!! I love open spaces, lots of trees, mountains and rivers.

The more tress, the more rustic the better. Huge bonus If there is a lake view ? I can’t wait for our family camping adventures this summer

I look for a water source nearby and a place for a nice little fire.

I look for a little elbow room between sites and trees. Lots and lots of trees.

I love finding a flat, dry spot with no chance of flooding and firewood close at hand if we have a spot to have a campfire.

I love having a remote, private location. I enjoy running into other avid campers from time to time, but having an isolated campsite to enjoy the peace and quiet or go all out is ideal for me :)
