A Quarter of Campers Work From the Campsite, says 2023 Camping Report

PORTLAND, Ore., June 2, 2023 ~ A quarter of campers worked remotely while camping in 2022, according to the 2023 Camping Report from The Dyrt, the No. 1 app for camping information and booking. This statistic is identical to the work-from-campsite stat from the prior year, despite return-to-the-office efforts across the country.

"You can't put the toothpaste back in the tube, and you can't put a productive working camper back in the cubicle," said Kevin Long, CEO of The Dyrt.

The survey found that 13.4 percent of respondents were categorized as avid campers, meaning they took more than 10 camping trips in 2022. This group was found to be nearly two times more likely to have worked from a campsite last year than other campers. Vanlifers are one of the main groups who take their work on the road, and Long and founder Sarah Smith ran The Dyrt from their camper van for six months in 2021 while crisscrossing the country.

"Remote work doesn't have to be work from home," Smith said. "As the leading resource and community for campers, we love it when a member of our fully remote team works from a campsite."

Recent technological advances have made it easier for people to work remotely while camping. SpaceX's satellite-based Starlink recently announced it can provide high-speed internet while a vehicle is in motion. Jason Dunne of Livingston, Texas said he finds increased productivity when working from a campsite with Starlink and solar power.

"The novelty of designing modern websites with Starlink in the middle of nowhere with solar power may never wear off!" Dunne said.
