2021 North American Camping Report

The annual North American Camping Report is an industry-leading research initiative that shares insights on the behaviors and attitudes of North American campers. The 2021 report provides a detailed look at the camping behaviors and trends from the year prior (2020) across North America. Participant campers were surveyed in January 2021, and the data reflects an intimate look at how COVID-19 impacted camping activity in 2020. To learn more, download the report HERE.










Monthly Research Reports

Following the annual release of the North American Camping Report, KOA tracks camping incidence and behavior for ALL CAMPERS throughout the US and Canada on a month-by-month basis. These new monthly reports evaluate the North American camping market by looking back at the previous month and looking forward to trends and evolutions as they occur.

















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.



The COVID-19 Fall 2020 Update to the North American Camping Report surveyed general leisure travelers September 4-9, 2020 to understand if behavior and sentiment toward camping had changed from initial reporting conducted in May 2020. At the time, data reflected an increase in activity from initial projections in May, and also showed that many travelers now considered themselves “campers,” having taken their first camping trip during the pandemic. This Special Report from Fall 2020 is a supplement to the 2021 North American Camping Report, which is the most current look at North American camping behavior in 2020.
