Josh Traxler explains Campspot software in Podcast 171

This week’s guest is Josh Traxler, the chief operating officer of Campspot, which is located in Grand Rapids, Mich.

Campspot goes beyond reservations management and online booking, although both are important components of the software. It allows people to tack add-on services to their reservations, like golf carts, bikes, tickets and even food.

It allows campground owners to click a button to see how existing reservations can be shifted from one site to another to free up space for an additional camper.

Owners can also price each site individually based on location or amenities, with a price that fluctuates based on promotions, the season, demand or special events.

The software allows campsites to be displayed in a grid format, list or map view. It can even accommodate multi-site reservations in real time.

The software system is already being used by Jellystone Parks, Adventure Bound Camping Resorts and Northgate Resorts, among others.

Moving reservations online for use by increasingly tech-savvy customers just opens so many doors not only for campers to create their perfect vacation experience, but reduce the amount of staff time required to make and manage reservations.

Campspot offers a powerful program to campground owners in a way that doesn’t require a huge up-front financial commitment. The affordable monthly fees make it incredibly easy for campground owners to tap into the system.

Campspot needs to be seen to be appreciated. For more information, call 616-226-5500, email  or visit
