Top 20 Prepping and Survival Sites

Looking back on 2015, I feel very fortunate; with all the insane events that transpired, we were still given more time to prep and get ready. It gave me a chance to remember some of my earlier lessons I learned when I began prepping and ultimately, helped me remember how important it is to stay alert and hopeful in dire circumstances. It seems that each year brings new emergencies and events that cause many of us to go into panic mode (Need I bring up the Ebola scare of 2014 or the buckling economy in September of this year?).

All the while these events were evoking fear and trepidation, there were prepping and survival websites weighing the information and providing solutions to help their common man better prepare. This is why I love the prepping and survival community so very much. Rather than going about their daily lives, the editors of these websites are tirelessly putting forth effort to provide the much-needed answers to help the layman get through these harder times. As Mike Snyder from The Economic Collapse blog points out, the general public needs all the help they can get.

And sadly, the truth of the matter is that most Americans are not prepared for much of anything at this point.  The following statistics come from a survey conducted by the Adelphi Center for Health Innovation.  As you can see, a substantial portion of the population is not even prepared for a basic emergency that would last for just a few days…

  • 44 percent don’t have first-aid kits
  • 48 percent lack emergency supplies
  • 53 percent do not have a minimum three-day supply of nonperishable food and water at home
  • 55 percent believe local authorities will come to their rescue if disaster strikes
  • 52 percent have not designated a family meeting place if they are separated during an emergency
  • 42 percent do not know the phone numbers of all of their immediate family members
  • 21 percent don’t know if their workplace has an emergency preparedness plan
  • 37 percent do not have a list of the drugs they are taking
  • 52 percent do not have copies of health insurance documents

Survival and prepping have come a long way since I first started Ready Nutrition. In that time a lot of websites have been created, but there are some who stand out. I wanted to take the time to showcase some of my favorite prepper and survival sites that I go to regularly. I respect these sites because, as I said earlier, writing about preparedness and survival takes a lot of time and effort and they set the bar high when it comes to quality content. As well, this list is also my way of thanking these websites for their hard work. As many of them know the thank you’s for all they do are few and far between in this line of work. In no particular order, these are some of my top picks for the best prepper sites out there.

  1. Graywolf Survival 
  2. The Survivalist Blog
  3. Survival Blog 
  4. Prepper Website 
  5. The Organic Prepper

  3. Andrea says:

    Wondering if any of the people running these sites have plans in advance of no access to internet to create a way for us to continue to communicate as a united group? I realize we are all spread out but now is the time to figure out how things will work without an internet or broken down society and govt. Just putting the thought out there bc we will need to ban together even if we are dispersed. Thoughts?

    • Tess says:


      Sadly, I do not perceive there being a way for that to happen. My advice is to find other preppers in your community. The more prepared your community is, the stronger it will be. When enough communities are prepared, we will all be better off.

      I’m some what suprised, they haven’t come up with a large scale plan for us all to meet up some where to start a comunity after shtf. But I understand the logistics would be almost imposible and the security issue of free loaders…

    • Mad Monkey says:

      There is a lot of talk on various prepper groups on ham radios – it is a fair investment in equipment and licencing.
