2022 North American Camping Report
Over the past two years, COVID-19 has significantly impacted travel. While much of this impact has been negative, camping has seen a dramatic increase in participation. In 2021, camping accounted for 40% of all leisure trips with more than half of travelers (53%) including camping in some or all of their travel. Leisure travelers, who would otherwise stay home, have utilized camping as a preferred form of travel and many are indicating camping will be part of their plans in 2022 and beyond.

The results summarized in these reports represent the latest efforts to measure camping incidence and behavior on a monthly basis in order to more accurately define and monitor the camping market in the U.S. and Canada. Surveying is conducted each month using a core set of measurements used to identify camping participation and intent over the course of the year. The sampling methodology targeted a randomly selected sample of U.S. and Canadian households. Sampling was designed to obtain n=1,500 completed surveys among representative U.S. and Canadian households. A sample of n=1,200 U.S. households is associated with a margin of error of +/- 2.83%. Among Canadian households, a sample of n=300 is associated with a margin of error of +/- 5.66%. All surveys were completed online via an outbound solicitation sent to a randomly selected cross-section of U.S. and Canadian households. The sample of households from which the surveys were completed was statistically balanced to ensure that the results are in line with overall population figures for age, gender and ethnicity.
