Tourism Grant Helps CampgroundViews.com Bring Virtual Site Tours to Arizona
June 21, 2022
360-degree virtual tours will show campers exactly where they’ll stay before they book
LARAMIE, Wyo. (June 21, 2022) /ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – CampgroundViews.com, the company committed to taking the guesswork out of campsite selection, is developing virtual tours of up to 250 campgrounds in Arizona to make trip planning easy for RV and tent campers. With CampgroundViews.com’s proprietary 360-degree virtual tours and searchable database, for the first time, campers will have a comprehensive tool to find and book the perfect campsite and avoid surprises upon arrival.
The service is being made possible by a grant from the Arizona Office of Tourism’s Outdoor Recreation Revitalization Program, which helps tourism-dependent businesses and communities recover from the pandemic. According to a KOA 2022 Camping Report, more than 57 million households in the US took camping trips in 2021 compared to 48 million in 2020 and 42 million in 2019. The overall increase in camping participation has strained resources of campgrounds and RV parks and CampgroundViews.com virtual tours serve as a valuable tool to improve the camper experience while also benefiting outdoor recreation destinations within Arizona.
“We were happy to be able to support the efforts of CampgroundViews.com and other tourism businesses through the Visit Arizona Initiative Outdoor Recreation Revitalization Program,” said Debbie Johnson, director of the Arizona Office of Tourism. “Visitors are looking for camping and outdoor recreation opportunities more than ever this summer, and Arizona is a perfect destination for a getaway.”
“Campgroundviews.com was started because we recognized how difficult it can be to find the right campsite–no matter where you want to go,” said Mark Koep, founder and CEO of Campgroundviews.com. “As we kicked off this project in the first week we completed 45 virtual tours of campgrounds across the state, and we continue to expand the database every day. Campers who have used our virtual tours know what a transformational tool they are to help with their trip planning, and grant support from the Arizona Office of Tourism was a critical factor in us being able to bring these services to more visitors to the state.”
Through the grant, Arizona campground virtual tours are available under this program for free use by anyone. Use the following link to watch the virtual tours now completed at https://www.campgroundviews.com/aot
There are 250 non-state owned properties within the State of Arizona eligible for inclusion in this program. Interested park owners and operators are encouraged to visit https://www.campgroundviews.com/arizona-free-opportunity/ for more information.
