There is a shortage of available campsites across the nation but something exciting is happening to fix that problem, according to a report by KPNX..

The National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds predicts more than 53,000 new RV sites will be built all over the U.S. this year.

“The RV industry, the sales just went through the roof,” Jo Anne Mickelson, executive director of the Arizona Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds, said.

Mickelson said the association has grown by about 20 members in the last year. She’s also owned Flagstaff’s J & H RV park for decades with her husband.

Mickelson said she’s seeing more parks pop up in Arizona too.

“We’ve had quite a few,” she said. “There’s three in the works in Flagstaff right now.”

It’s not just new campgrounds breaking ground, owners are also investing in revamping their properties.

“We have one here in Flagstaff that was completely rehabilitated, called Woody Mountain,” Mickelson said. “That park has been in existence for probably, 45 years.”
