Skip the crowds (and the pricey entrance fees) and head to a nearby state park.You may dream of seeing the geysers of Yosemite or the overwhelming greatness of the Grand Canyon, but chances are you have a handful of little wonders in your own backyard. State parks like Goblin Valley in Utah hold their own against the neighboring Arches National Park (or Canyonlands, for that matter), while Maine's Baxter State Park is arguably just as wild as the well-known Acadia National Park (Baxter doesn't even have running water!). Plus, state parks tend to be less crowded and more affordable, two things that bode well for overnight guests.
Hope for a good season
«Easter is traditionally a period of time, which is more spontaneous and dependent on the weather forecasts," said Association of Christian Günther. "Generally, mountains and sea also pull here." For the camping industry, the start of the season can actually only be better after the companies around Easter in the two previous years had significant losses. "Last year we had to look at how our guests were driven in such a foreign destination," Günther said.
The association assumes that the numbers of the campers are slowly attracting: "In April, there is a quiet awakening on campsites. With the better weather from May and at the latest from the ascension is then full, "says the association's executive. "So if you want to enjoy the peace, you should take a camping right now."
Overall, the association expects a good season - "If further Corona restrictions fail and the effects of war in Ukraine the German consumers do not burden even more», as Günther said restrictive. At the prices, no extraordinary changes are expected.
Last year, the campsites in Germany counted almost 33 million nights, around one million less than 2020. With almost 9.5 million nights, there was a record value in August. However, the losses of the first half of the year have not been compensated for the BVCD. Camping was particularly in demand in Bavaria, Schleswig-Holstein and Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.
