SAN DIEGO, CA (March 16 2023) – With camping popularity steadily increasing over the last several years, Terra Vista Management, which manages three Southern California campground resorts including Newport Dunes Waterfront Resort in Newport Beach as well as Campland on the Bay and Mission Bay RV Resort in San Diego, prepares to welcome new and returning campers this spring and beyond. According to the latest research from popular camping resource, The Dyrt, more than 7.2 million Americans went camping for the first time in 2022, showing the increase in camping popularity has no signs of slowing down.
According to The Dyrt, there are nearly 80 million total campers in the U.S. in 2022, with 35 million Americans choosing to camp in an RV. In San Diego, after removing abandoned mobile homes for the De Anza Cleanup and Improvement project, Mission Bay RV Resort received approval to add 147 temporary campsites. These campsites will be available for booking in the summer of 2023.
Campers reported to The Dyrt that it was 5 times harder to find an available campsite in 2022 than it was in 2019. According to the campers surveyed:
Other reasons include first-come, first-served sites are full (16.4%), closures due to fire/weather (4.7%) and other (7.6%).
Many campers are booking in advance, according to the Dyrt survey. 60.9% book three months or more in advance, and 8.6% book at least a year in advance.
