New to the Outdoors? Camp for Free With Eddie Bauer

Eddie Bauer is giving away — get this — 1,000 free campsites for one night only this summer.

Want to go camping? Better yet, want to go camping at a gorgeous state park, for free? Eddie Bauer is here to make that dream come true for 1,000 lucky adventurers.

On August 7, Eddie Bauer is giving away 1,000 free campsites across nearly 70 Washington and Oregon state parks.

Eddie Bauer said it’s providing free campsites “in an effort to welcome more people to the outdoors and help eliminate barriers some face to getting outside.”

As part of that effort in increasing equity and access, the Pacific Northwest-based brand is partnering with several nonprofits who work with underrepresented communities, including Unlikely Hikers, Disabled Hikers, SoulTrak Outdoors, HBCUs Outside, The Venture Out Project, and more.
