As domestic travel becomes increasingly safer, and we slowly move towards returning to “normal”, campers & glampers alike are itching to get back on the road and start planning their vacations. While the future of travel has been hard to predict recently, we did our best to pull together some trends we plan to see in the upcoming year!

Based on a survey of our Instagram followers, along with data from online booking site Campspot, these predictions show how the emergence from COVID-19 will influence travelers’ plans, destinations, and goals.

Time to start planning

78% of you still have to work out the details of your vacation! We understand that with travel restrictions it’s a little bit tougher to plan in advance, but it’s been proven that outdoor vacations are the safest way to get away. So, it may be time to put pen to paper and start thinking seriously about your upcoming vacation – the earlier you book, the more options you have for site types, dates, and add-ons!

Staying close to home

For those of us traveling this year, 63% percent are planning to stay close to home. Who doesn’t love a good staycation! You don’t need to get on a plane to explore somewhere new. Plus, there are tons of great surrounding attractions to our Camp-Resort. Check out all of our recommendations here!

Trying something new
As many travelers had their vacations taken away from them last year, it makes sense that over half of you indicated that you’d like to try something new this year. 53% will be looking to try a new destination, way to stay, and much more. And why not try something new at Jellystone Park™? Even if you’ve stayed with us before, try camping during a different themed week, try a different cabin or campsite type, or rent a new add-on. Plus, we’ve added a couple new things this year – read about them here.
Relaxing trumps educational

We don’t blame you. 97% of you are looking to relax on your vacation instead of making it an educational trip for your family. Well good thing for you, there are endless ways to relax! Stake out some chairs or rent a cabana at the Water Zone and park it for an afternoon, camp out around the fire as the sun goes down, or read a book at your campsite with the sun on your face. It’s time to R-E-L-A-X!

Length of trip

A little over half of you are planning for a week long trip, while the remainder are planning a weekend getaway. No matter how long you’re looking to stay, we have a deal to save you some money when you book! Check out all of our deals here. Plus, we have fun themes no matter the length of your getaway – check out all our themed weeks and weekends here.

Staying outside

When it comes to a camping trip vs. a city trip, 29% of you said you’d prefer camping to a hotel, and 71% said exploring the outdoors over the city. We agree! The city can be crowded, now’s the time to look for wide open spaces with room to explore. Breathe in the fresh air!

Where do you align with these trends? Now’s the time to plan your outdoor camping vacation! Whether you’re pitching a tent, parking your RV, or glamping in a cabin at Jellystone Park™, isn’t it exciting to be thinking of your next trip? Start planning today by checking rates and availability here!
