WHO WE ARE
Ramble is a Colorado-born business comprised of everyday people -- outdoor enthusiasts, weekend warriors, creators, dreamers, and disruptors -- brought together by a shared mission of creating amazing ways to enjoy and make the outdoors a welcoming place.
Our founder, Matt Oesterle, took a road trip with his family and stayed in traditional parking-lot-style campgrounds for the first time. Compared to his many experiences backpacking and camping in more remote places, he found the experience of being on top of each other in paved parking lots to be terrible and lacked the experience of being in nature.
This turn of events led to conversations with outdoor-minded friends and family and the insight that there wasn’t a great national brand with nature-focused campgrounds. The result was Ramble, born in an effort to bring a great outdoor camping experience to all Americans.
With an amazing initial team in place, Ramble breaks ground in Mosca, Colorado to begin construction and turn vision into reality.
2023 brings the grand opening of our flagship campground — Ramble at Great Sand Dunes National Park in Mosca, Colorado. Meanwhile, we’re developing additional locations including Mesa Verde National Park and Buena Vista.
You can expect a Ramble campground within an hour of every metropolitan city within the United States. Each will be designed to accommodate various camping experiences and inhabited by the most diverse, welcoming and environmentally focused group of humans.
