About Us

Chris and Kaard hiking to Cuyamaca Peak in Rancho Cuyamaca State Park, CA

Here’s us; the glory days of youth and free time (also known as 2011). Beginning as juniors in high school, the increasingly fewer free weekends that came our way became increasingly devoted to camping. As life became more and more hectic, the allure of relaxing by a warm fire under a star-lit sky became more and more beautiful, and when we turned it into a bi-weekly event, our girlfriends began calling it an obsession. Which it definitely became. And still is. But tell us, what’s wrong with getting out of the city, out of suburbia, and into nature? We made it our goal to share our newfound love, and TentTalk was born.

However, we quickly ran into a problem. A lot of sites had little information besides the patchy paragraphs on ReserveAmerica. Some didn’t even have photos. Other review sites we checked were just a list of bullet points. It was really hard to get a feeling for the campground, let alone which site might be best out of the ones available.

On TentTalk, our reviews are in-depth and personal – we want to give you as much info as we can to help you in finding that great campsite. We include maps and official information, photos from our stay (we only review sites we’ve stayed at), a list of our favorite sites, and  are ready to answer any question you might have.

You can use tags to navigate, or visit our archive page to see lists of campgrounds we’ve reviewed, broken down by state. In addition, longer-form stories can be found under our TentTalk Chronicles Page, and our video “vlogs” from our adventures can be seen on the TentTalk Travels Page.

Leave us a comment, send us a message, and let us help you get out and camp!  We will be your camping companion. Stay tuned to TentTalk!

    Hello guys!

    we are a couple from Ukraine coming to Vegas this May,
    and of course we planed a 1-2 day visit to the Grand Canyon,
    therefore would like to rent some camping equipment: one tent,
    two sleeping bags and pads, one lantern, etc.

    Any advice will be much appreciated as this is our first time in the USA
    as well as camping in the Grand Canyon.

    Thanks in advance!

      Welcome to the US, and thank you for getting in touch with us! You’re going to love the Grand Canyon.

      Personally, I have never needed to rent any camping gear, so I can’t specifically can’t recommend any one place. However, I was able to find this great list of all of the places you could go to on your way from Vegas to the Grand Canyon.

      My first choice would be REI, they’re a really well-respecting gear and clothing outlet here. However, their only store in Las Vegas is about a half hour away from the airport in the opposite direction of the Grand Canyon, so depending on your travel plans that may not be ideal. Also, keep in mind that if you’re going to the North Rim you’ll be nowhere near Flagstaff, and Flagstaff is also about a 90 minute detour from the South Rim, so I would recommend getting what you can in Vegas before heading out.

      Best of luck and let us know if we can help with anything else!
