With another summer of staycations expected due to the pandemic, Massachusets campgrounds are already reporting a busy season ahead, according to Western Mass News.
At Southwick Acres Campground in Southwick, Mass., the phones have been ringing non-stop with people looking for a place to stay this summer.
Owner Janice LaFrance told Western Mass News that she has never seen business quite like this.
“This year has just been unbelievable. They have not stopped since last September. We have people…I have no more seasonal sites… it’s been a phenomenal year. This is the busiest I’ve seen in the almost 40 years I’ve been in business,” LaFrance said.
Not only are parks filling up quicker, but people are also staying longer.
“This year, because of the pandemic, I have essential workers here, which is very unusual, especially to have so many early like this. I have about 15 of them. They came in early,” LaFrance explained.
