LARKSPUR, Colo., Oct. 6, 2009 – Private campgrounds and RV parks increasingly offer much more than a place to pitch a tent or park an RV.
In addition to providing outdoor activities, such as hiking, fishing, kayaking or horseback riding, many private parks now offer organized family activities, from scavenger hunts to themed weekends and their own versions of TV game and reality shows.
And you don’t have to own a tent or RV to join in the fun because private parks are increasingly providing unique accommodations, including onsite RV rentals, cabins, park models, yurts, safari tents and teepees.
And now, thanks to a major overhaul of the GoCampingAmerica.com website, finding private campgrounds and RV parks that offer these special activities and accommodations is easier than ever before.
“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,” said Linda Profaizer, president and CEO of the National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds.
The site, which 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 the National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds 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 the many parks that offer AAA, AARP, FMCA, Good Sam and other popular discounts.
