Even before Covid, the parks were getting busy. A lot of it is driven by social media. People are more aware of what the parks have to offer. Used to be able to walk up and get a backcountry camping site at most parks, now you need to reserve months in advance. National forests offer more opportunities to get away from the crowds.
