GoCampingAmerica.com App Debuts for Campers on the Go
Free App Available for Apple and Android Users Allows Full Website Functionality on Mobile Devices
The new GoCampingAmerica.com app is available to help the more than 25 million American campers on the go search for RV parks and campgrounds around the country. Campers can find their next adventure from anywhere once the app is downloaded, designed to be utilized on mobile phones and other handheld mobile devices.
The GoCampingAmerica.com app is available for free download now for iOs (apple devices) on the App Store and Android devices on the Google Play Store. The app allows users to have the complete power of the newly redesigned GoCampingAmerica.com anywhere across the country with internet access or a cell signal. Users can find and compare parks, search areas nearby, view blogs including tips for campers of all experience levels and upload photos of visits to RV parks and campgrounds.
“This app provides the same experience of our new website, and more, and it brings it directly to the palm of your hand,” says David Basler, vice president of membership and marketing at ARVC. “Every camper needs to download this free app and make sure they use it as they plan and embark on their next great adventure!”
The app features the same powerful new search engine that allows campers to pinpoint their exact needs or compare parks along their route by searching in broader terms, including nearby landmarks and destinations. Campers are prompted to “Find Their Next Adventure” in the search bar and can view updated park profiles across the United States, Canada and Mexico, including the ability to make a reservation or connect directly with a campground’s social media channels and website.
RVers, campers and outdoor enthusiasts alike can use this app to find their next place to stay and learn more about the outdoor industry with the Happy Camper blog and various guides to adventuring. More features will be coming soon to provide additional tools to help campers plan vacations and find the perfect RV parks and campgrounds to visit.
“We are working on a ‘Plan Your Route’ feature that will debut early next year and will constantly be updating the features in the app to make it provide the information campers need as they search for a place to park their rig or spend the night as they travel,” says Basler.
For owners and operators of RV parks and campgrounds, the new app offers additional ways to market their park’s features, events and attractions campers will experience when they book a stay. Park owners and operators can add high-resolution photos, videos, a park description, nearby landmarks, amenities, rates, policies, social links and more.
“We wanted to create a unique app for RVers and campers to easily find their next adventure,” says Basler. “This app provides that easily accessible experience for consumers and it also gives RV parks and campgrounds a direct line to RVers and campers planning their next trip. It’s the perfect marketing app.”
GoCampingAmerica.com is also the official search engine for GoRVing.com, the consumer-facing site operated by industry partner RV Industry Association (RVIA), which further enhances the exposure for listed RV parks and campgrounds.
If owners and operators are looking for more visibility with consumers, ARVC member-parks are eligible to upgrade and enhance their profile with special placement and badges on their listing, social media pushes on the GoCampingAmerica.com social channels and blogs. These options will have parks highlighted at the top of searches for more views when campers are looking for their next adventure. Featured parks, including those that have earned special recognition from ARVC, including Awards of Excellence and the Plan-It Green Friendly Park Program, will also receive badges to help them stand out.
The potential to reach the 25 million Americans who go RVing each year also provides a great return on investment for businesses with camping and outdoor supplies that advertise on GoCampingAmerica.com.
