Our Story

Colorado became a state on August 1st, 1876. We became a company on Colorado’s Birthday, August 1st, 2018, and Spirit of 1876 was born.  With 3 kiddos by my side I wanted to get back outdoors but I knew it wasn’t going to be as easy as it once was.  Hours upon hours of research left me with decision fatigue and a lot of questions.  “How does this YouTuber know the best tent for me”, “Why do these two things look the same but vary in cos?”, What rack is best for this tent and awning?” 
There’s a lot of choices in this industry and it seems as though the pandemic brought us even more.  Our main goal is to help individuals and families of all skill sets get outside while giving back to this beautiful state we call home.  That’s why we plant trees with OneTreePlanted & that’s why we follow the “Leave it Better” motto, because we want this paradise to be around for our kiddos.  That’s the Spirit of 1876.
