Best Parks in America affiliates are ready for the camping and RVing season reporting overall enthusiasm for getting outdoors is improving over 2011.

According to a press release, the Memorial Day holiday beginning May 25 kicks off the summer season with campers and outdoor recreation enthusiasts booking reservations at Best Parks in America RV parks and campgrounds. Many of the 66 Best Parks in America affiliates report that bookings for RV sites and cabin rentals are ahead of 2011. And with Memorial Day weekend indicators of high occupancy at many parks, it looks like consumers are anxious to get outdoors.

Anaheim Resort RV Park near Disneyland in California still has a few sites left for the long weekend and Pine Acres Resort in Oakham, MA reports the Memorial Day weekend is nearly at capacity and that bookings for the summer season ahead of last year. Gas prices haven’t dampened enthusiasm for camping with Holiday Trav-L Park in Virginia Beach, Va., and Keen Lake Camping and Cottage Resort in Waymart, Pa. Both resorts are reporting campers are coming from closer locations and staying longer.

“Trends at Best Parks affiliates clearly indicate that the consumers are anxious to get outdoors and spend quality time with family and friends, enjoy the natural environment found at RV parks and campgrounds, and enjoy leisure time closer to home . . . and we encourage leisure travelers to contact Best Parks when planning their vacation”, says David Gorin, president of Best Parks in America.
