Kampgrounds of America parks throughout North America are expecting more record-setting crowds this week for the annual Labor Day Weekend.

Based on booking rates, occupancy for Labor Day Weekend is up 11.5 percent at the 490 KOA campgrounds in North America, compared to the same time period in 2015.

The KOA reports that the weekend will likely continue the trend this year of growing campground attendance during holiday weekends.

The trend began in May with KOA’s annual Care Camps Big Weekend event, which saw a 16.5 percent growth in occupancy from 2015. Memorial Day Weekend was also up 14.5 percent from 2015. Father’s Day Weekend was up 6.1 percent, and the Fourth of July Weekend saw a 17.2 percent increase in occupancy.

The camping trend isn’t exclusive to the U.S. The group reports that Canadian holidays at KOAs also saw increases, with a 24.1 percent growth in occupancy for Victoria Day Weekend May 21-23; a 13.5 percent boost in occupancy for Canada Day Weekend July 1-3; and a 11.1 percent increase for the Canadian Civic Holiday on August 1.
