Campspot, a campground reservation software provider, today said that developers can access Campspot’s Online Booking API and use it to showcase and aggregate their rates and real-time availability within their own website.
This move will allow multi-park operators and enterprise campground owners to provide their guests a seamless one-stop shopping and booking experience. Guests can search across all of a campground owner’s properties with a single query, all while maintaining the look and feel of the campground owner’s existing booking engine.
“We’ve always believed that success for a campground means being able to serve its campers with ease. Offering campgrounds the opportunity to aggregate and consolidate their park inventory and availability into their direct consumer site is just one more empowering feature we can help enable,” said Campspot CEO Michael Scheinman.
Access to Campspot’s Online Booking API requires campgrounds to be listed on the Campspot Marketplace, a campground OTA in the industry with nearly 2,000 private campgrounds and over 200,000 campsites.
According to Campspot, activation requires a one-time access fee and completion of some simple authentication steps. After, campgrounds can then work with their in-house development teams or contract with an outside web development agency to integrate real-time rates, availability, and booking features into their own website and/or mobile applications.
Parks will automatically benefit from the powerful booking engine parameters and optimization algorithms like session pricing, site holds, lock site, dynamic pricing, along with the robust rules and features available in Campspot’s booking engine suite.
“It’s an industry-wide challenge to serve the unique complexities and challenges campers have when it comes to reserving a campsite,” said Al Scott, Campspot’s chief technology officer. “Campspot has spent years building a powerful booking and reservation engine to meet these complex needs and we’re excited to enable campgrounds to support their own properties and guests by opening our booking API to developers to build and work into their website.”
