Red Rover Adds 800-number Service
Red Rover Camping decided to provide prospective campers with a way to reach participating campgrounds by telephone.
Robert Bouse, Red Rover “top dog,” said they continue “to evolve as we grow and in keeping with our belief and motto of being a campground and camper’s best friend, we have changed our original philosophy of not placing the campground phone number on our web site. The obvious reason we were not placing the phone number on the site was that if a Rover calls a campground directly and makes a reservation, then Red Rover makes no revenue, as there is only a charge for those that book online from inventory an affiliated Red Rover campground puts into the system.”
To get around that, Red Rover will have an 800 number for people to call, and each campground will have a unique code. When callers call the number, they’ll be asked for the code and an operator will connect the caller to the desired campground.
When the campground gets a call from the system, the person answering the phone will need to answer that they’ll accept the call before the prospective camper is connected. There’s no cost to the campground, Bouse said in a press release.
“We only ask that campground owners go to RedRoverCamping.com, select ‘Claim Your Campground’ and advise your front desk to accept calls from Red Rover Camping.” Bouse said.
By claiming your campground Red Rover will provide you with access to your webpage on Red Rover Camping which will allow you to add pictures and provide/correct information, according to the press release. All of this is free with no fee, no contracts, and no obligation.
