(ABC News) – Bookings for summer vacations are increasing and doctors say that with proper safety precautions it is okay to leave.

This year, finding camping may not be so easy.

Gary Garth of USA Today says that in the midst of the pandemic, outdoor adventures are skyrocketing in popularity.

“Are people ready to go out and get some fresh air, ready to feel safe? And one of the reasons I think camping is so popular is because it’s a very safe activity. “

Garth says more than 50 million Americans are expected to take to the streets and set up a tent or park their RV this summer. According to, bookings for outdoor booking services for 2021 are up 39% compared to the same period in 2020.

“We’re looking at a summer where it ‘s going to be difficult to get a website and we’re going to take some action on your part if you really want to make sure you’re safe,” Heather Greenwood David told National Geographic.

And these bookings go fast. Experts advise you to start as early as possible, as now, to see when your favorite park opens its online reservations.

“If you are hoping for a Memorial Day weekend spot, you may already be in luck,” he said.

While national parks have always been a very popular choice this year, you may need to get a little more creative.
