To help encourage folks to get out and enjoy National Great Outdoors Month in June, a wide array of campgrounds across the country, many close to national parks, are offering a 20 percent discount on camping fees.
While none of the participating campgrounds are located inside national parks, many are on the doorsteps of parks, in such towns as West Yellowstone near Yellowstone National Park; Columbia, Montana, near Glacier National Park; Cherokee and Bryson City, North Carolina, near Great Smoky Mountains National Park; or Three Rivers, California, outside Sequoia National Park.
Participating in the discounts are private campgrounds, RV parks, and resorts that are affiliated with GoCampingAmerica.com . The discounts are good during the first three weeks of June.
“We think National Great Outdoors Month is a perfect opportunity for America’s campground industry to encourage everyone to get outdoors, explore nature and have fun with their friends and families,” said Paul Bambei, president and CEO of the National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds.
The Denver, Colo.-based association represents more than 3,300 private campgrounds, RV parks, and resorts.
In addition to providing discounts on camping, GoCampingAmerica.com will also provide e-coupons that consumers can use to obtain discounts at Camping World stores and 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 1st to 25th period.
GoCampingAmerica.com will feature e-coupons for use at campgrounds, Camping World stores and El Monte RV beginning May 15th. However, the discounts will be available from June 1st to 25th. Campground discounts will be available only at participating parks and on a space-available basis.
“We encourage campers to use GoCampingAmerica.com to locate the campgrounds, RV parks and resorts that are of interest to them and to call at least 24 hours ahead to book their reservations,” Mr. Bambei said.
