As spring continues to unfold in the valley, the crowds are beginning to return to Top-Of-Mind Campgrounds. Keeping campers happy and making T-O-M their home away from home is the goal of the site’s operators, and they are looking for some new promotional ideas to help them do it.
The owners decide to parcel out the goodies based on the length of stay: daily, weekly or monthly. Most of the camp’s patrons are fairly local, so giving them great promos to take home ensures that they will be seen by untold numbers of potential customers in nearby counties.
For daily guests, a disposable lighter with attached bottle opener is a gift that will help keep campfires burning and bubbly beverages ready to refresh. A scuba foam beverage sock will take care of the canned variety of potables while a handy pocket tool with knife and scissors will be out and in use before campers are done pitching their tent.
When guests book a week-long stay, thank them with great gear like a unique ceramic campfire mug. Continue the theme of outdoor utility with a paracord bracelet that also features a must-have compass, while a collapsible silicone lunch box makes eating a clean affair that can be done anywhere.
Folks that take the campsite up on their monthly rates deserve some exceptional giveaways. A fleece roll-up blanket is great for chilly evenings, as is an acrylic knit cap. And a quality mini LED flashlight is a high-value gift that is perfect to keep in the RV or the car, not to mention a necessary tool to have at the site itself.
The campground can promote jointly with any statewide camping association to help defray costs. Owners should also canvas local RV shows for customers – just make sure there’s a nice website or YouTube page to send them to so the operators can show off the site’s bucolic location and any babbling brooks and streams nearby. It’s going to be a great summer!
