CalARVC Releases ’14 Camp-California Guide
There are three ways to access the Guide: View it online at Camp-California.com, download it from the iTunes App or Google Play stores, and request or pick up a print copy.
“It’s an app-friendly, digital magazine,” said Susanne White, advertising manager for the California Association of RV Parks & Campgrounds (CalARVC), which produces the guide.
“This camping and travel-planning guide will live in your newsstand on your device if you want it to,” White said. “You can flip through the magazine, and while connected to a network, access more content than the 80-page print version of the directory can hold.”
The digital version of the guide has links to a wealth of travel information as well videos of campgrounds and products or services of interest to camping enthusiasts.
After downloading, even without a data connection, just like the print version you can flip through the pages at any time.
“The guide is a complete reference in and of itself,” White said. “It has locator maps so you can find the campground you’re looking for when you don’t have access to GPS or data. The guide provides all of the information you need, including descriptions of the parks.”
The cover of the camping guide also has a QR code that camping enthusiasts can scan for a chance to enter a sweepstakes for $1,000 worth of free camping. The winner will be announced in December and will be featured in the 2015 edition of the camping guide.
White said 200,000 print versions of the free camping guide are being distributed to consumers through California Welcome Centers and Camping World stores throughout California as well as campgrounds, RV parks and resorts affiliated with CalARVC.
Anderson’s Brochure Service is also distributing the guide at camping and RV shows across the Midwest and east coast.
The printed version is a four-color glossy magazine that lists more than campgrounds and RV resorts throughout the Golden State, offering information on a wide variety of rental accommodations, including tent cabins, yurts, teepees, covered wagons and even motels.
It complements Camp-California.com, the travel planning website of CalARVC, which the association has improved in recent years with more detailed travel planning sections, including a section that lists campgrounds, RV parks and resorts that can accommodate RVs over 40 feet in length. Additional sections provide information on driver’s-license requirements and road restrictions involving 40-foot plus RVs.
