AMLA releases North Alabama campground guide

DECATUR – The Alabama Mountain Lakes Tourist Association (AMLA) has released a  brochure highlighting the campgrounds and RV parks in North Alabama.

The new North Alabama Campgrounds brochure spotlights 39 campground and RV locations, each one offering different amenities, sights and destinations to experience, in the 16 northernmost counties in the state.

“North Alabama offers a wide range of camping options with plenty of outdoor adventures, world-class museums, restaurants and shopping within a short drive,” said AMLA President and CEO Tami Reist. “Whether you prefer campsites on the water or in the woods, or if comfort is more your style instead of roughing it, we have a campground for you in North Alabama.

“The new North Alabama Campgrounds brochure joins our other comprehensive brochures that makes planning a trip easy.”

During the COVID-19 pandemic, campgrounds and RV parks saw an increase in use since people were able to practice social distancing while enjoying family time away from home.

According to outdoormiles.com, in 2019, only 4% of camping households were new campers, and in 2020, that number surged to 21%. Camping trips made by households have increased from 68.5 million in 2014 to 105.6 million in 2021, and there were 4.4 million more households who owned an RV in 2021 than there were in 2019.

“Campgrounds and RV parks continue to remain popular with leisure travelers,” said Reist. “Some of this can be attributed to the fact that many employees are continuing to work remotely, especially with Gen Z and millennials who are choosing to work from an RV.

“We hope the new North Alabama Campgrounds brochure will serve as a handy guide to what all is offered in the region.”

A copy of the brochure is available for download at www.northalabama.org, may be picked up at the AMLA office, 402 Sherman Street in Decatur, or by calling 800-648-5381.
