Founder and Main Contributor for Brighten Your Campsite

Hello! I’m Derick and my love of the outdoors and camping in particular, led me to create Brighten Your Campsite. Through personal experience and extensive research, my goal is to bring you the best advice on outdoor equipment. I’d love for this to be your go-to site for camping, hiking and outdoor research. It would be very much appreciated if you clicked through our Amazon links since that’s how we keep the lights on – but if you would rather just keep up to date with the latest outdoor equipment, that’s fine too!

If there’s a topic you’d like me to write about, please feel free to reach out and let me know at brightenyourcampsite@gmail.com.
