Virginia State Parks has launched a new online reservation site for campgrounds, cabins, yurts, and picnic shelters.

According to a release, the new system aims to improve the visitor experience with better maps, faster reservations, and an improved loyalty program for customers. 

The new site launched on January 27 after months of discussions with the state’s new management technology provider, US eDirect

Virginia State Parks is continuously investing in ways to improve our internal systems and in the way we engage and serve the public,” said Virginia State Park Director Dr. Melissa Baker. “This new system will streamline bookings and allow visitors to experience the Commonwealth’s natural beauty and incredible history.”

Customers of Virginia State Parks will experience a new system with improved functionality that includes: 

●    Interactive mapping that will allow overnight guests to explore each park in greater detail 

●    An enhanced loyalty program that will move from a point- to dollar-based system, allowing guests greater flexibility in converting repeat stays into discounted reservations

●    Updated waitlist functionality to alert guests when previously booked sites become available 

●    Faster transaction processing times online and in person, creating a more streamlined user experience 

“US eDirect has one goal: to innovate relentlessly to serve agencies like Virginia State Parks and their millions of annual visitors,” said US eDirect CEO and President Tony Alex. “We are committed to our shared success and look forward to years of working together to serve Virginia State Parks visitors.”
