Arizona campgrounds and RV parks can now be visited virtually thanks to the Social Media site
Grand Canyon Village, AZ June 17, 2014 – Campgroundviews.com releases 50 videos of RV parks and campgrounds at some of the most popular destinations in the Southwest including the South Rim of the Grand Canyon, Williams, Flagstaff, Sedona, Prescott, and surrounding areas. The social media site has created first person videos allowing anyone with an internet connection to see what is available before making plans. The videos are free for viewing on the company’s website at www.campgroundviews.com and depict both public and private parks in the area.
The social media site is popular with technologically savvy campers who readily travel with easy access to the world wide web. With built in video cameras in modern cell phones the RV and tent travelers are turning to video to share what a park looks like rather than worrying about writing detailed reviews or relying upon outdated printed guidebooks. According to founder Mark Koep, “Our videos are provided by a wide range of campers serving as a testament to the value of seeing a place before traveling”. All the videos are edited to remove personally identifiable information including faces and license plates.
A few of the more popular parks included in the release are the forest service campgrounds closed by the recent Sedona area fires, the 3 KOA locations in Williams and Flagstaff, all of the National Park campgrounds in the South Rim area of the Grand Canyon, and several Arizona State Parks. “Our goal is to build the single biggest resource of user submitted videos of parks across the nation. We are well on our way with over 1000 videos” Added Mr. Koep. This release of videos follows on the heals of additional videos of Phoenix, Mesa, and Quartzsite area campgrounds.
