For the first time in its history, the Illinois Campground Association’s annual camping guide is available in digital format on the association’s website at IllinoisGoCamping.com.

The print edition of the Illinois Go Camping 2015 RV & Camping Guide, which features all 80 ICA member parks, is also being distributed at trade shows, visitors’ centers, campgrounds and RV dealerships across the Midwest, said Larry Fons, an ICA board member and owner of Double J Campground in Chatham, Ill.

In an announcement about the guide, Fons thanked Texas Advertising for creating the design for the guide, which ICA previously produced in house.

“The layout is much more professional than we’ve ever had before,” he said, adding that the guide should continue to grow both in size and popularity in the coming years.

“This year our guide had some advertising in it and we expect the number of ads to grow in the coming years with Texas Advertising handling our guide because they will work harder to sell ads than some of our volunteers,” Fons said.

Texas Advertising is also working to redesign IllinoisGoCamping.com, with the rollout of the new website expected later this month.

“We’re working to make IllinoisGoCamping.com consistent with the design of the camping guide. It will have a very cool mapping function and really punch up the member parks,” said Braden Walker, website director for TXAD Internet, noting that, “The new website and digital camping guide will be mobile device friendly.”
