As travel restrictions get lifted, more and more people are planning their next vacation, and an old favorite is making a comeback in a big way.

Interest in camping has been steadily climbing for the past decade and surged to new heights last year. Toby O'Rourke, president and CEO of KOA Campgrounds, says campgrounds have been filling up.

"Camping has definitely changed over the years and glamping is one part of that," she says. "People are looking for unique ways to stay and they're looking for those unique vacations."

KOA campgrounds have canvas tents, tree houses, yurts, deluxe cabins, and more. You can also stay on the site in your own RV.

There have also been steady increases in the diversity of those who are camping, including more people of color as well as younger people.

There are 24 KOA campgrounds across Florida. If you want to find the one closest to you, you can check out their website at
