Study Shows People Working from a Campsite Nearly Tripled Between 2018 and 2021

Camping app The Dyrt has discovered that the number of people who worked from a campsite nearly tripled between 2018 and 2021.

According to a press release, as the pandemic caused remote work to become more common, campers soon discovered that work from home could become work from campsite.

In the recently published 2022 Camping Report, 23.8% of campers reported that they were working from a campsite in 2021.

“I’ve been traveling on the road in my camper van for the last year and a half,” says Michelle Micallef, SEO manager at The Dyrt. “It began as a pipe dream; maybe one day I’d find a remote job and spend time seeing the country. The Covid-19 pandemic ended up expediting my van life into reality. With remote work becoming the norm, I realized that I could be creative and productive while safely nurturing my love for nature and the outdoors.”

The 2022 Camping Report reveals that 70% of campers said their camping trips include weekdays as weekday camping no longer has to mean using PTO or vacation days.

The most essential part of living on the road is being able to find reliable service and Wi-Fi for video calls and other tasks because my career is what’s funding the lifestyle,” says Micallef.

“Being able to change my office view from mountains and deserts to lakes and beaches has been a dream come true for my work-life balance. Camping in beautiful areas of the country while analyzing data, developing comprehensive SEO strategies, and executing successful digital marketing campaigns has allowed me to be the best version of myself.”
