One of the things that makes camping great are the games. Frisbee, Corn-hole, Disc Golf, and many others all make the leisure time so much fun. After a particularly fun camping trip this winter we realized “Hey let’s make it a bit more fun over on the website!”. We are proud to announce the monthly Camp Game. Here is how it works:
Earn points by doing what you do already… write reviews of your favorite parks, submit photos, and submit videos. Our system will automatically apply points to your account. At the end of the month the person with the most points wins!
How Many Points
- 10 Points for each Approved Written Review
- 20 Points for each Valid Photo Submitted
- 200 Points for each Video Submitted

How Do I Build Points
You gain points by submitting written reviews of campgrounds and RV parks, submitting photographs of the parks, and/ or submitting unedited video of campgrounds and RV parks. You can submit as many or as few of these items as you choose during the contest period. Each submission accumulates your account additional points. We reserve the right to deduct earned points for any content that does not meet our editorial guidelines or is not your own work. We do not accept fake written reviews and will reject them immediately… if you have not stayed at the park do not write a review.
December-March 2017 Prize
Due to the off-season we are extending this monthly contest in to a 3 month window. Most points wins a Strongback Folding Camp Chair ($99.99 value)

How Do I Start?
Login using the “Sign In” link at the top of this (and every) page. Search and find the park. Submit a written review or photograph/ video.
Q: Can I submit a review, photo, or video for a place I stayed last year, 2 years ago, or further back?
A: Yes, you are simply asked to note the date of your stay within the written review. The limit for back dated work is 5 years maximum; any thing older is ruled as invalid and will be rejected.
Q: How many photos of the same park can I submit?
A: There is no limit to the number of photos you can submit AS LONG AS each photo is different, unique, and features the location in some way (no random nature shots).
Q: What if someone is in the photograph?
A: You must have the rights to the photograph and the permission of any individuals in the photo to claim that work. Learn about model releases here.
Q: How do the videos work?
A: We have a detailed tutorial on videos here.
Q: What is the best way to gain points and win this thing!?
A: Points are awarded based upon difficulty and time. Written reviews are straightforward and can be completed quickly. Photographs take a little more effort but are also more useful for other users. Videos are amazingly useful but take time and effort. A healthy combination of written reviews, photographs and videos will greatly increase your chances of winning.
Q: Can I copy and paste my written reviews from other places I have posted them?
A: It depends. Usually once you submit a written review somewhere else their terms of service assigns ownership of that content to them. This means that after submitting that review you no longer own the content and would technically be violating their copyrights by copying and pasting the information here. You are welcome to reference your past review and re-write it here.
Q: Can I use photos posted on the campground website and submit them here?
A: No. Unless you are the owner of the photo or have permission from the owner of the photo you can not submit it as yours.
Q: What’s the goal of all of this?
A: To have fun and help others discover great camping sites!
