Camping makes up nearly one-third of the leisure travel market, with more than 58 million households spending time around the campfire last year. And 38% of campers say they will camp this winter. (That’s a 20% jump over 2022.) Moreover, another 27% of respondents say they probably will.
What’s sparking a new love affair with winter camping? Benefits include fewer crowds, opportunities to ski and snowboard, and the chance to savor snowy, cozy landscapes. Of course, so-called “snowbird” campers use the winter months to escape to warmer destinations.
Cabins and glamping also continue to grow in popularity, with more than 12 million households choosing them for luxury family holidays in 2022. Compare that to 5 million in 2021, and you can see a serious trend on the rise! Check out these winter glamping options.
