2023 Outdoor Accessibility Report

Kampgrounds of America, Inc’s first comprehensive research report focused on the state of camping and outdoor enjoyment, viewed through the lens of accessibility. Inclusive of physical, cognitive and socio-economic factors, accessibility in the outdoors continues to be an industry-wide challenge that KOA endeavors to unravel, starting with this impactful report.

Around 1 billion individuals – approximately 15% of the global population – live with one or more disabling conditions. The report, Outdoor Accessibility: Charting Paths to Inclusion, dives into incidence, behavior and barriers those with limitations impacting their camping experience face (38% of those surveyed). Encouraged by findings that 48% of accessibility-challenged campers assert the activity is a more accessible travel experience than other outdoor activities or leisure travel, there is still much to be done to turn this knowledge into tangible progress to bring the outdoors to everyone.
