The Dyrt Report Reveals Increase in Campers Working from Campsites

The Dyrt, a camping application, reported an increase in campers working from the campsites. The app’s latest report shows that 28.9% of campers worked remotely from their campsites last year, up from 23.8% in previous years. This uptick comes despite companies nudging employees back to office settings.

“Work-from-campsite is here to stay. I wasn’t surprised to see the portion of campers getting in some work stay level from 2021 to 2022, but to see that the number increased last year is incredible. There are a lot of people out there who aren’t too keen on going back to the office but are also tired of working from home. Where better than a campsite?” The Dyrt founder Sarah Smith said in a press release.

Key technological advancements have enabled this shift, with 76.6% of private campgrounds now offering high-speed Wi-Fi. This allows remote workers to fulfill their job requirements from virtually anywhere, blending work responsibilities with the relaxation of natural surroundings.

PJ, a camper from Missouri who uses The Dyrt, finds that working while camping is less bothersome as it allows him the freedom to set his work conditions. He describes the experience of setting up his laptop on a picnic table and working outdoors as liberating.

The demand for reliable internet and other professional amenities has spurred campground operators to innovate. Campgrounds are evolving into work-friendly zones that cater to a demographic of campers who integrate work and leisure.

“I work while I’m camping because it’s the easiest way to make sure that I’m outside camping! Typically, there are fewer campers during the workweek, and my career only stipulates the requirement of a decent enough internet connection. I’ve worked while camping in winter and summer, and my ideal workday usually involves being able to watch my family have fun while I’m still paying the bills,” The Dyrt camper Kevin O. of Oregon said.

For campground and RV park owners, with technology bridging the gap between the office and the outdoors, the trend of working from campsites can provide a new approach to considering high-speed Wi-Fi and amenities suitable for remote workers.

Campgrounds are stepping up their game by providing office pods in the woods. It’s like a cozy retreat from all those chirping birds during virtual meetings. ‘Glamp-working’ is on the rise, and who needs a dull office when you can work surrounded by nature’s beauty? Cool, right?
