'13 KOA Directory Digital Edition Available
Kampground of America (KOA) campers have yet another tool to help plan their travels, and make sure they get safely to their favorite campground.
The Digital Edition of the 2013 Kampgrounds of America Directory is now available in a unique, booklike online format that allows you to virtually “turn the pages” of the book as campers pursue KOA’s popular camping aid and atlas, according to a news release.
The Digital Directory, available at www.koa-directory.com, uses a service called Uberflip to provide users with a seamless, book-like reading experience on their computers and mobile devices and smart phones.
“We’ve had a digital version of the printed KOA Directory online for the past two years, but this new technology takes the experience even further,” said Mike Gast, KOA’s vice president of communications. “Users can get the same experience they would have with the printed Directory, plus active links in the Digital Directory will take them right to campground landing pages on KOA.com for more information or to book their reservations.”
Readers are also able to print out just the pages they need for their next trip, if they like. As always, the printed 2013 Kampgrounds of America Directory is available for free at any of the 475 KOA campgrounds in North America, or can be ordered online at KOA.com for just a small shipping and handling fee.
Also new this year is the ability to make KOA camping reservations directly from mobile devices such as iPads and smart phones. The KOA mobile site can be accessed from any mobile device by entering www.koa.com into the browser. Once there, campers can quickly navigate to their favorite KOA and complete their reservation on their mobile device.
“All of these digital advances make it easier for our campers to plan their KOA trips,” said Gast. “We’re constantly working on new tools and enhancements that will continue to improve the experience for our campers. Stay tuned. There’s much more to come.”
