Camping With Steve

If you want insider tips on backpacking, camping, rafting, and other outdoor adventures, the Camping with Steve YouTube channel is a good place to start. Although his camping adventures occur only in Canada, his advice can be applied anywhere you camp. He tends to camp more on the wild side and has tips for if you want to camp off the beaten track or at more established sites. If winter camping is something you are interested in, Steve’s insight from years of experience will help you be successful. With 1.35 million subscribers, this “ABC (Always Be Camping)” guru emphasizes safety, and survival tactics are often discussed in his current library of 286 videos. Steve even has his own line of hoodies and tees

Homemade Wanderlust

Not all camping happens at campgrounds. Just ask Dixie, the face behind the outdoor survival channel Homemade Wanderlust. What began as a way to document her long hikes on the AT (Appalachian Trail) turned into a super popular channel for those looking for insight on hiking and backpacking. Featuring gorgeous scenery, a good range of hikes, and a plethora of topics, it’s no wonder that more than 420,0000 subscribers come to her channel for her firsthand knowledge. From beginner mishaps to tips on thru-hiking some of the most popular trails, including the Continental Divide Trail and the Florida Trail. Check out her favorite gear and learn from her mistakes.

Outdoor adventure is not all serious. There is plenty of humor to find in camping mishaps and mistakes, and that is where the Outdoor Boys come in. Over 3.25 million fans subscribe to their channel for insight on all kinds of things outdoors, including fossil hunting, backyard DIY projects and camping. Posting a new video weekly on Saturday mornings, there is always fresh content to enjoy. They also have their own YouTube fishing channel with over 300 videos.

If you find yourself getting too serious about pack weight or the best fishing bait, head to the Outdoor Boys’ YouTube Channel for a reminder of why we get outdoors in the first place.

Adventure Archives

The Adventure Archives began in 2009, and, since then, this group of four outdoor enthusiasts have traveled around the world from Japan to Disneyland, documenting their explorations. Hailing from Ohio and Indiana, Andrew and Bryan are brothers, Robby is their cousin, and Thomas is close friend and neighbor. When you watch their videos, you can see the family-like bond between all four of them as they travel to national parks, learn to identify edible plants and make campfire-worthy flatbread. Solo backpacking, climbing a mountain peak, getting caught in a hailstorm—these are just some of the insights you can gain from their 290 videos. They even have teasers about upcoming videos.
