168.1 millionthats how many Americans ages six and older participated in outdoor recreation in 2022. That’s a record high. Who’s driving this participation? And how are they participating? And where?
Join OIA’s Research Director Kelly Davis on June 29th for a deep dive into key insights from the report, including: 
  • The outdoor recreation participant base grew 2.3 percent in 2022 to a record 168.1 million participants or 55 percent of the U.S. population ages six and older.  
  • Although 2022 outdoor recreation included record numbers of participants and record high participation rates (especially amongst families and youth), the number of outings per participant declined in 2022 for the first time since the pandemic began in 2020.  
  • The outdoor recreation new participant base became more diverse in 2022 including increases in participation among Black people, Hispanic people, and LBGTQIA+ people.    
  • Eighty percent of outdoor activity categories experienced participation growth in 2022 including large categories like camping and fishing, and smaller categories like sport climbing and skateboarding.
