About Us

P1015131Our Story

Beyond The Tent was started by Kelly and I (and our 5 kids) as a family camping blog back in 2012. We traveled all around Minnesota, Wisconsin and even into South Dakota staying at as many campgrounds as possible.

Along the way we have been sharing what we learned, our thoughts on the different campgrounds, what gear has been a lifesaver and what gear to avoid.

We’ve even managed to find ourselves promoting family camping on different TV stations across Minnesota, newspapers, blogs and even Canadian radio (you can see some of our media appearances here).

Along the way we’ve grown to love camping, gotten burnt out on camping and found a love for it again. The best part for us is getting out with the ones we love, undistracted and experiencing all that nature has to offer.

Gear & Reviews

A big part of what we do here at Beyond The Tent is reviewing gear and letting you know our thoughts. We want you to know that we never recommend any gear that we don’t use ourselves or that we wouldn’t buy. If it’s not worth your money we’ll either tell you or we won’t mention the product.

The Blog

Beyond The Tent strives to bring our readers high quality blog content on a consistent basis. We share our family trips, tips and whatever interesting stories we find along the way. All to make your camping experience the best it can be.
