Search Results Page

It's hard to say whether a cabins and lodging provide beds and if they have linens. I added filters for beds and beds with linens. Also I added filters that answer the needs of newbies and families to find a campground with the amenities they need.

Campground Listing Page

I added a camp map that should make it easier to locate campgrounds and amenities. There is a detailed description of what makes the camp family friendly and an autogenerated camping check list.

Camp map

Adding a map to allow users to book their prefered spot. Families tend to be particular about where they want their campground to be. The access to showers and bathrooms is important.

Family friendly

Each campground may be family friendly in a different way. Some may offer activities for kids, others may just have a playground.

Auto generated checklist

While the page lists all available amenities, a newbie camper may still not be sure what essential items to bring. A list generated based on the location, number or people going, their ages, time of the year, and duration of their stay is a very good starting point for a camping checklist.

Step 1

When the user arrives on the page they are prompted to choose the location of their cabin.

Step 2

Once the location is chosen the green button changes to “Direct book” and the information about which cabin is chosen is just under the button. The user can change the cabin by using a drop down menu or by using the map.
