Campspot launches mobile app after booking surge

US: Campspot, an online marketplace for RV resorts, family campgrounds, cabins, glamping options and more, has announced the launch of a mobile app to make it easier for campers to search, discover and book their perfect camping trip.

With the Campspot mobile app, available on both IOS and Android, campers will have access to over 110,000 campsites in 49 states in the United States and all ten Canadian provinces. Due to the fact that Campspot integrates directly with campground reservation systems, campers will also be able to instantly find and book their ideal camp spot in the app.

Campspot CEO Michael Scheinman said: “We are thrilled to make it easier than ever to book a camping trip with the introduction of the Campspot mobile app. We continue to see unprecedented demand for outdoor vacations following a 220 per cent increase in the volume of Campspot bookings from 2019 to 2020.

“Our app will help lovers of the outdoors quickly and easily book a campsite and create lifelong camping memories,” he added.

Key features of the Campspot mobile app include:

  • Campers can use the app to search thousands of campgrounds at once
  • With a variety of ways to stay and enjoy the outdoors, the app will make it easier to find a RV resort, campground, cabin, or glamping option that fits the needs of every camper
  • Book directly and instantly with Campspot’s low price guarantee
  • Use Campspot’s ‘lock-your-site’ feature to book the precise location within the campground you desire

Developed by campground owners, Campspot officially launched in 2015 with a goal to bring the outdoor industry in line with current mobile behaviours by introducing technology that provides campgrounds with a powerful tool to better manage bookings and grow revenue. In 2020, it rolled out its public booking platform, allowing travellers to search and book thousands of campgrounds.

The online marketplace provides access to almost 110,000 campsites across the United States and Canada.
