About Us

At Territory Supply, our goal is to help readers embark on unforgettable travel experiences. We feature some of the best places to stay and explore in the U.S. and beyond.

Whether you’re looking for cabin rentals, glamping spots, or ideas for a weekend road trip, we can help you find your next big adventure.

We believe in the spirit of exploration: the pull of the open road, the allure of far-off mountains, and the effort it takes to get there. We’re inspired by the places, people, and stories around us, and we’re on a mission to share ’em.

Our Story

Territory Supply began in 2015 after a group backpacking trip in the Grand Canyon. Founder D.T. Christensen and his brother went to work creating a lifestyle brand focused on exploring unique outdoor spaces, and the gear needed to get there. The mantra in our early days was “Go like hell,” and off we went, exploring new trails, campgrounds, cabins, and unique places to stay around the Southwest, and eventually across the country. Covering everything from epic hikes to eco-friendly glamping sites, Territory Supply put a spotlight on some of the most unique outdoor experiences around the U.S.

More than eight years later, Territory Supply inspires thousands of readers every month with new outdoor travel ideas, from long-distance road trips to the leg-busting backpacking routes that made us fall in love with nature years ago. Today, we work with talented travel writers and adventurers around the world to bring first-hand knowledge and recommendations to a diverse audience looking for unforgettable outdoor adventures.
