Redesigned GoCampingAmerica Website Goes Live
The National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds (ARVC) has completed its long-awaited redesign of the Go Camping America website, the searchable database for private campgrounds, RV parks and resorts across the country.
“We have completely overhauled and redesigned GoCampingAmerica.com to make it easier for consumers to find the campgrounds and RV parks that best fit their needs,” Linda Profaizer, ARVC president and CEO, said in a news release.
The redesigned website, which went live on Monday (Oct. 5), can also be used to book reservations online, includes a “Find Rentals” tab with search functions that make it easy to find campgrounds and RV parks with RV rentals on site as well as cabins, park models, yurts and teepees.
An advanced search function allows consumers to find parks that are uniquely suited for tent campers as well as parks that are big-rig friendly, with pull through sites and 50 amp electrical service. You can use the site to find family parks, pet-friendly parks, age restricted parks as well as parks that offer nude recreation.
The advanced search function also enables consumers to search for parks that offer nearly 40 different types of activities and outdoor recreation, from biking and bird watching to hunting and fishing, golfing and kayaking. Links to information about outdoor recreation, festivals and special events in each of the 50 states are also provided on the site along with helpful information for first time campers, such as “What to Pack” lists and recipes. Links to the state affiliates of ARVC are also provided.
Consumers can also use GoCampingAmerica.com to quickly find parks that are affiliated with major campground chains, such as Equity LifeStyle Properties, Kampgrounds of America (KOA) and Leisure Systems Inc., which franchises Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park Camp-Resorts as well as parks that offer AAA, AARP, FMCA, Good Sam and other popular discounts.
Profaizer said private park operators should log on to ARVCGateway.com to update their park descriptions and listings of activities and special events so that consumers can easily spot their parks using the website’s enhanced search functions. Park operators should also send photos of their parks and links to their reservation pages to Grant Barnette and firstname.lastname@example.org so that they can be loaded onto the redesigned website.
