LAS VEGAS, Nev. — Campendium, a web app that lets you find, review and virtually visit campgrounds, has announced the company’s official launch, a press release from the organization stated. Designed by young full-time RVers, Campendium helps users find the best campground for their unique needs in 49 states. Whether a price-sensitive snowbird or a weekender seeking adventure, Campendium lets users find, review and virtually visit more than 21,000 campgrounds around America, the release stated.
“Smartphones and tablets have improved multiple aspects of our lives, from business to play,” said Campendium Co-Founder and President Brian Easterling. “By finally modernizing campground research, we’re helping people change their camping experience for the better. Our 900+ beta users have already reviewed more than 600 campsites, added 463 blog posts and over 1,500 photos. We’re excited to open Campendium to the public and further expand our services to the community.”
Camping in the United States is a billion-dollar industry. 41 million Americans, or 14.1 percent of the population, went camping in 2013, according to the American Camper Report. The RV Industry Association estimates that 20 million RVers hit the road annually.
