Campgrounds are getting ready for what hopes to be another busy year in Door and Kewaunee County. According to the 2018 North American Camping Report, popularity is growing in the United States with an increase of 2.6 million camper households in 2017. Requests for campsites and rental units have been hot since they started taking reservations in December, but it was the cold and snow that Harbour Village Resort Manager Judy Pfister blames for many area campgrounds getting a slow start in their preparations for the season.
According to Forbes, 42 percent of campers stay in national/state/municipal campgrounds while 25 percent stay at private facilities.
