CampScanner Introduces Game-Changing Flexibility Feature for Campsite Scans

CampScanner, a leading paid service for finding availability at sold-out campgrounds, National Parks, National Forests, and more, is thrilled to announce the launch of its groundbreaking new feature: Flexible Date Scanning. This feature allows users to add up to 5 days before and after their preferred arrival date, significantly increasing the odds of finding an available campsite.

The Need for Flexibility in Campsite Booking

The demand for camping spots has never been higher, and securing a reservation at popular campgrounds has become increasingly challenging. Recognizing the need for greater flexibility in booking options, CampScanner has developed this feature to give users an edge in finding available spots during their desired time frame.

How the New Feature Works

With the new Flexible Date Scanning feature, users can easily extend their search window by adding up to 5 days before and after their chosen arrival date. This means that a single scan can now cover an 11-day range, offering unprecedented flexibility and increasing the likelihood of finding an available campsite.

To use this feature, users simply select their preferred arrival date and then choose the number of flexible days they wish to add from a dropdown menu. The scan will then automatically include these additional days, alerting the user to any openings within the extended time frame.

Benefits of Flexible Scanning

  1. Increased Chances of Availability: By widening the search window, users significantly improve their odds of finding an available campsite.

  2. Convenience: The feature is incredibly user-friendly, requiring just a few clicks to set up.

  3. Customization: Users can tailor their scans to match their specific needs, whether they're looking for just one extra day or a full five-day extension.

User Experience and Feedback

Early adopters of the Flexible Date Scanning feature have praised its effectiveness and ease of use. "This feature has been a game-changer for me. I can now plan my camping trips without the stress of limited availability," says Anne-Marie Byl, a frequent CampScanner user.

Just think, if on your next trip you’re looking to visit Yosemite National Park but don’t have a strong preference for which date, you now only need to enter one scan for your preferred time frame instead of entering multiple and crossing your fingers one of them works out.

Future Plans

CampScanner is committed to continually enhancing its platform to meet the evolving needs of its user base. The company has plans to introduce more features in the coming months that will further simplify the campsite booking process. Stay tuned!
