There’s no doubt that more Americans are camping than ever before.  According to a recent KOA survey, 56.9 million families would camp in 2021, an increase of over 15 million households from 2019. 

In addition, more than 9 million families were first-time campers in 2021. As the number of campers grows, campsites and campgrounds are expanding and opening new places to meet the demand. 

Whether you’re a first-time camper or a seasoned visitor, these are the new campsite and glamping spots launching in 2023.
