Camping in Wisconsin is more popular than ever after a year where people were staying socially distanced and outdoors, according to WTMJ.
Whether you’re camping in a tent, glamping or taking the RV, it’s all about getting away from it all and being in nature.
Wisconsin Department of Natural Resource’s Chris Pedretti says state parks saw an over 6% increase in camping in 2020, despite the parks being closed for several months due to the pandemic.
Once state parks reopened, campgrounds saw bookings up more than 25% in July and about 15% in August of last year.
Campers also enjoyed the outdoors later in the season too. The state park system saw an increase of 62% in October and a 190% increase in November compared to the same time in 2019.
Pedretti says the trend is continuing into this year.
