How to Upgrade Your Camp in Red Dead Redemption 2

Firstly, you’ll need to know how to upgrade your camp in Red Dead Redemption 2. You can donate your own money to your camp through the ledger, marked by the dollar sign in a briefcase on the mini-map, and you can then use the ledger, which is right next to it, to make upgrades using the money you’ve accumulated.

Dutch’s Tent Upgrades in RDR2
