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 now, thanks to a major overhaul of the GoCampingAmerica.com Web
site, 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
