DENVER, Colo. -- Campgrounds affiliated with GoCampingAmerica.com are doing their part to support Great Outdoors Month by offering fun family activities as well as significant camping discounts from June 1 to 25.
“Camping is not only the most affordable vacation option, but it encourages families to get involved in a variety of healthy outdoor activities, from hiking and fishing to river tubing and white water rafting, or simply playing on a beach,” said Paul Bambei, president and CEO of the National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds, which hosts the GoCampingAmerica website.
Bambei added that many of the campgrounds on GoCampingAmerica.com list everything from organized nature activities to outdoor crafts classes, games and other fun family activities and special events that help families build memories to last a lifetime.
And you don’t have to have a tent or RV to participate.
Well over half of the 3,300 privately owned and operated campgrounds, RV parks and resorts that are listed on GoCampingAmerica.com offer rental accommodations ranging from safari tents and teepees to cabins, luxury park model cottages, yurts and RVs. Some campgrounds even offer covered wagons, cabooses and tree houses available for overnight stays.
GoCampingAmerica.com also provides e-coupons that consumers can use to obtain discounts at Camping World (www.campingworld.com
) and Coleman (www.coleman.com
) camping supply stores as well as RV rentals booked through El Monte RV, which has agreed to provide 500 free miles plus 50 free miles a day to GoCampingAmerica visitors who rent an RV for at least one week during the June 1 to 25 period.
Additionally, GoCampingAmerica is hosting a summer-long video competition, in which campers can submit 2-minute videos of their camping trips to compete for several camping-related prizes, including a grand prize of a weeklong RV trip in an El Monte RV motorhome with free camping at GoCampingAmerica campgrounds. The video competition runs June 1 through Labor Day weekend. Details are
