Colorado-based BigFamilyVacation LLC has established an application on Facebook to help the thousands of RV travelers who use Facebook, to find campgrounds.

One of the benefits of the application is to allow users to see the location of campgrounds by clicking on state maps, according to a news release. Within each state, the campgrounds are displayed as map pins, and the grouping is sorted by ZIP codes, so that while planning to travel to regions in any state, the user can see the listed campgrounds in that area, and to call for information or a reservation.

“We know that there are now many thousands of people who are enthusiastic RV travelers, who regularly use Facebook to keep in touch with friends and family, such as kids and grandkids, while on the road. We think this application will provide a great resource to help them plan where to stay at their next destination,” said Don Sumner, of BigFamilyVacation LLC.

The Facebook application, “Campgrounds” is tied to the website, and gets access to all of its listings. There are now almost 1,400 listings on the website, with more being added every day. Campground owners and managers can get a Basic Listing on the website for free. The Basic Listing includes the campground name, address and phone number. A premium listing is also available, which includes up to seven images, a full description, a list of amenities, a list of area features, a detailed location map and Links to Webpage, e-mail, and social network pages.

The price of the Premium Listing is $ 9.95 per year. In addition to looking for campgrounds by looking at maps, users of the application or website can also do text-based searches to find campgrounds by state, city or description contents. Users can also sign up as “members" and thereafter log in and save their Favorites or previous Searches as a private reference.

“Our goal for this application and website,” continued Sumner, “is to eventually have this website be a very comprehensive and easy-to-use campground reference, with listings for all U.S. private and public campgrounds. We welcome all managers to submit their campground for a basic listing. We also welcome campers to submit campgrounds where they have stayed. If we don’t already have a listing, we will certainly consider adding it.”
