ACCESSCAMPING.com Canadian Visits Soaring
AccessCamping.com has seen a 10-fold increase in Canadian visitors following a decision by the Canada’s national camping industry association, Campgrounds Campings Canada, to transfer its CampCanada.com web links to the general camping website portal.
Established one year ago, AccessCamping.com provides hundreds of links to databases of public and private campgrounds as well as RV clubs across North America.
“Canadian campers are visiting AccessCamping in record numbers, thanks to the addition of CampCanada’s weblinks to public and private campgrounds in each of the Canadian provinces,” said Brian Schaeffer, president and CEO of Texas Advertising, which launched AccessCamping a little over a year ago.
CampCanada.com was previously hosted and managed by the Recreation Vehicle Dealers Association of Canada (RVDA of Canada), but the association recently transferred its web links to AccessCamping to provide more efficiency for consumers looking for campgrounds in Canada, said Anita Lien, program coordinator for RVDA of Canada, which previously administered CampCanada.com on behalf of Campgrounds Campings Canada.
AccessCamping.com also includes links to online databases of the major campground industry directories, including those provided by the National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds (ARVC), the Trailer Life and Woodall’s North American Campground Directories, as well as the websites of campground chains, such as Kampgrounds of America Inc. (KOA) and Jellystone Park Camp-Resorts.
Schaeffer said AccessCamping.com is needed because most websites have limited campground listings.
“The government run websites, for the most part, list only government run parks while the websites for campground industry associations typically limit their listings to parks that are members of their associations. As a result,” he said, “most websites only give the camping consumer a partial view of what’s out there in terms of potential camping venues. The good news about AccessCamping.com is we truly ‘pamper the camper’ by giving them more camping options than any other source.”
