A new survey of state parks by the National
Association of State Park Directors
features some encouraging news for the camping and
RV industry. For 28 state-park systems reporting on camping activity for calendar year
2009, all but one reported an increase in camping. The sole exception is Hawaii, which has
experienced a significant drop in tourism overall. The average increase in campground stays
for 2009 over 2008 for the 28 states was 7.38%, according to a preliminary report issued by
Philip McKnelly, NASPD executive director. The same states also reported a significant
increase in overall state-park visitations with just two states – New Jersey and Arkansas -
reporting declines. The overall increase in visits for 2009 was 6.94%. Story courtesy of href="http://www.rvbusiness.com" target="_blank">RV Business.
