I n c o m e Overall, there is a direct relationship between household income and frequency of camping, with higher income households much more likely to camp three or more times each year. Higher income households are also more likely to report that they travel longer distances from their homes. Lower income households are likely to camp the fewest nights, with a majority in the lower income brackets saying they spend one to three nights camping. The type of primary camping accommodation is also related to household income, with lower income households seeking more affordable types of accommodations. Indeed, nearly two-thirds of campers who come from the lower income bands camp in tents; by comparison, about one-fourth of higher income campers stay in a deluxe cabin as their primary form of camping accommodation. Also, across the board, there are only minor differences in household income based on the ethnicity of the camper, with the exception of Asian American campers who tend to come from a somewhat more affluent demographic when compared to all other campers. Indeed, 40 percent of Asian American campers report a household income of $75,000 or more, compared to only one-fourth of campers from all other ethnic categories who report a household income of $75,000 or more. I N C I D E N C E B Y A G E Overall, campers tend to be somewhat younger than the overall population, with recent results showing a slight uptick in camping by 25 to 34 year olds.
