Plenty of people will fondly remember visiting Yellowstone National Park in an RV with mom and dad as the classic American vacation of yesteryear.

But now, travelers are looking for more transformative, unexpected vacation destinations, even if they're driving there in a recreational vehicle.

Business Insider spoke to Jon Gray, the CEO of RVshare, a peer-to-peer RV sharing platform, about current RV trends following the release of the company's 2020 travel report in November. 

"We've been asking our customers 'where are you headed?' and obviously Yellowstone and the Grand Canyon are standout destinations, but Ginnie Springs kept coming up," said Gray, "and I had never heard of it."

While the coronavirus pandemic continues to change travel expectations and desires, Ginnie Springs continues to be on the up-and-up. It reopened on May 1. Demand was so high that, local ABC news affiliate reported, Ginnie Springs had to start turning away visitors by 11 a.m. on Saturday, May 16. Another, First Coast News, reported that it was packed over Memorial Day weekend.

The park asks for visiting groups to be smaller than 10 people. It also asks that visitors practice social distancing.
