Campground and RV Park Reservation Software
(Getting Experience with Campground Manager)
I have a question about campground reservation system software. Is there someplace I can get training? Many work camper jobs I'd like to apply for require you to have experience with Campground Master or some other reservation program. How do you get this experience if you've never worked in a campground or motel that uses it?
Coleen, the RVing editor replies:
Many of the companies offering RV park reservation systems have free trial software available from their websites. Some have free demo CDs. Using the trial versions isn't the same as actually working in a campground with them. But, it can teach you the basics.
Campground owners may be impressed that you took the initiative to educate yourself by studying the info on the software company's website.
Both Campground Master and Campground Manager have live demos you can download free. I think CampWorks and EZ-CAMP2 have demo CDs available.
Digital Rez is now partnered with Affinity Group (AGI) the Good Sam, Trailer Life, Woodalls, and Camping World empire. ROS2006 is being re-branded to RVTripsetter for the camping industry.
Motels and hotels, along with marinas, B&B's, and tour companies also use the same or similar reservation software. So, having at least a basic understanding of it can come in handy for other jobs besides working at RV parks.
