Camping Remains Healthy in Idaho
The recession doesn't appear to have hurt RV camping in Idaho, with private and state-run campgrounds that offer services to motorhomes reporting rising bookings and robust business.
The Idaho Statesman reports camper registrations at Kampgrounds of America Inc. climbed 7% between May 1 and July 15, compared with the same period last year.
And reservations at state parks are up 15% since July 1, according to the Idaho Department of Parks and Recreation.
Anne Chambers, director of the Idaho RV Campgrounds Association, says "RVers are still out RVing."
Ron Lundquist, manager of the Boise-Meridian KOA just west of Idaho's capital city, says his business has been good for several years.
