Tent Camping on the Rise

According to Leave No Trace, overall visitation to the National Parks had been decreasing since 1996, and tent camping had been falling short since 2003. However, according to the 2011 statistics, this year marked a 6.24% increase in tent camping and a 4.3% increase in overall visitation. These statistics suggest that in difficult economic times people spend their vacations closer to home. And recreating outdoors is a great way to spend a vacation!
