CampsitePhotos.com, a site that hosts photos of campgrounds in the U.S., is excited to announce the launch of Campsite Assist, according to Eric Edwards, founder and CCO of the company.

Campsite Assist is an online tool that finds available campsites at sold-out campgrounds and alerts the user (via text and email) when a campsite becomes available. The alert also includes a link to the reservation website so the user can immediately try and reserve the campsite.

“As most campers know, getting a reservation at a popular campground is very difficult,” said Edwards. “We developed Campsite Assist specifically to try and help campers get a campsite at a sold-out campground on the dates they want to camp.”

Campsite Assist allows users to choose a campground, date of arrival, length of stay and frequency of scans (every three, 13 or 33 minutes). A one-time fee is charged for each scan request. Scanning will start immediately after payment and run continually up until the date of arrival. Users can change the date of arrival and number of nights at any time (for no extra charge).

Users also have the ability to include or exclude Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), equestrian and group campsites. Other features will also be added in the coming months.

Initially, Campsite Assist is scanning all reservable campgrounds and properties listed on Recreation.gov (2,883) and ReserveCalifornia.com (235-plus).

“Campsite Assist does not book reservations, but it will notify people the second a site becomes available. It’s then up to the user to complete the reservation,” added Edwards.

Recreation.gov includes many national parks, U.S. Forest Service sites and other campgrounds.

ReserveCalifornia.com handles all California state parks, beaches and recreation area campgrounds. Campsite Assist will add other reservation agency sites in the near future.
