28.46 million households across North America plan to camp over the Labor Day holiday, the August edition of Kampgrounds of America Inc.’s (KOA) Monthly Research Report suggests.

This is a 60% increase in camping households compared to Memorial Day Weekend and 44% more than the Fourth of July.

One-fourth of campers will camp during the Labor Day weekend. Nearly 1-in-5 camp for one or two extra days around the holiday. Only 12% plan on camping the whole week.

Campers who plan to camp only for the weekend, or less than 30 days make up 40%.

As 28% of campers plan to make more trips this fall, the popularity of the holiday weekend will continue. COVID is still a concern but overall cancellations and changes in camping plans will be minimal – only 1 in 5 campers have reported that they made changes to their fall camping plans.

 “This month’s research and our advanced reservations show that fall camping is becoming more popular,” said KOA President and CEO Toby O’Rourke.

August shows that 54.5 million households intend to camp in 2021, based on the entire year. KOA projects that 5.3 million households will be added to their camp by 2021, a 1 million increase on the May projections of 4.3 million.

KOA tracks key indicators in the camping industry, including participation, future intent, and incidence, as well as the preferred type of camping.
