Website WidgetsNew for 2020!
Integrate your campground’s website directly with PCM. It’s easy with our customizable website widgets
- Add your interactive campground map directly to your website so guests can browse through your sites, see details for each one and view the pictures
- To take it a step further, let guests enter the dates they want to stay and show them site availability on the campground map. They’ll be able to select an available site, see a rate quote and quickly begin making their reservation.
- The Event Calendar widget will show a listing of all your upcoming events along with a Book Now button for each one. Up-to-date availability will be included so guests know at a glance if you still have sites open for that event.
- Add "Book Now" button widgets throughout your website. They make it quick and easy for your guests to book a site. Each button can be tied to a certain date range or site type. For instance, if you already have a web page dedicated to your cabins, put a Book Now button on that page that shows how many cabins are currently available. The button will take the customer directly to the online reservation page, automatically select “Cabin” in the site type dropdown and prefill in the dates for the guest.
- When guests fill in the Contact Form widget from your website, they’re automatically added as a customer in PCM (useful for future marketing campaigns) and an email will be sent to you with the content of their message.
- Other widgets: Map and driving directions to campground, Image Gallery, FAQ, Blog and News. Those last 3 allow you to quickly change the content of the website yourself at any time using our built-in content editors. No need to call your website designer…

Exclusive Marketing and Sales Channel Through Premier RV Club
Premier RV Club is a new membership club for RV owners and campers.
You have exclusive access to these members to offer discounted rates and publish special deals on excess inventory during periods of low occupancy.
This gives you a new sales channel that will give you a chance to fill sites during non-peak times that would otherwise sit empty. The discount is only available through our membership club so it won't affect your published rates.
Premier RV Club also provides search tools for members to find campgrounds in the vicinity of their intended destination. Offering a few of your campsites at a discount provides you with a great opportunity to connect with new customers.
Multiple options gives you flexibility to offer the right sites to the right members:
- You have full control of which sites are offered as well as which dates (and days of the week) those sites are available.
- You control when offers are shown. E.g. you can set up discounts for the whole year but only make them available two weeks in advance - giving you a chance to book them first.
- You specify how many sites are offered at a time and the order that they're offered.
- You can specify the minimum and maximum lengths of stay.
- You can offer sites in "batches" allowing you to fill up a section of your campground first before offering sites in other sections.
- You can limit the number of sites an individual club member can book per year. If one of your existing customers is also a member of the club, you can choose to exclude them and we will not show your offers to them.
- Reservations will be booked directly into your system just like any other reservation - no special handling is necessary. The only difference in these reservations will be the discounted rate.
- Club members must pay the entire balance when they book the site online. No refunds.
- The website includes a "Featured" list of offers that is displayed prominently on the first page. Campgrounds that offer the most sites/biggest discounts will be eligible for that placement.
- Premier RV Club is different than most discount clubs:
- Discounts are for specific campsites that campgrounds designate themselves. (Not a general "50% off" discount)
- All offers are for a limited time and are first come, first-served.
- All discounted reservations are managed through the club website and booked through the campground's online reservation form. Campground staff do not have to deal with members or manually handle the discounts.
- Sites are guaranteed and paid in full.
- This feature is free for you to use and free for the club member - a win-win scenario.
Available AnywherePremier Campground Management's campground reservation system was built from the ground up for use with mobile devices which have become the device of choice for guests looking for a site. A tablet, smartphone or desktop is all that you or your guests need in order to use the reservation management system.
Easy To UsePowerful features with a sleek look, uncluttered layout and streamlined workflow means that PCM gives you the control and access you need.
Online ReservationsAllow guests to book one or more sites themselves with our integrated online reservation system. Online reservations without a separate module or integration with a 3rd party means easy access for your guests and money savings for you.
Real-Time Updates With PCM, all reservation changes are immediately shown to every user - no browser refresh needed. This gives you an "at-a-glance" view of your entire site and prevents double bookings.
Site Map Integration All reservation management functions can be done either in the planner view or the site map view. Easily switch between the views at any time.
Reservation PlannerManage all of your campground reservations for the coming months in one place with the planner view. Zoom feature allows you to see many months of reservations for all of your sites on one page.
Housekeeping / Maintenance TasksAutomatically assign tasks to sites before guests arrive, after they depart or on a recurring schedule. View task progress and see when a site is ready in real-time on our Task Dashboard. Assign tasks to individual employees or teams for efficiency. Each user has their own dedicated "My Tasks" page that allows them to see their daily tasks and quickly mark their progress using a phone or tablet. Send out email or text message reminders to staff when new tasks are assigned to them.
Guest ChatQuickly send out messages or reminders to everyone staying in your park! Schedule welcome messages for new arrivals or a daily itenerary of activities. Send a "Thank You" message to guests after they leave and invite them back again. This unique, opt-in feature will keep you in touch with your guests via emails or mobile phone text messages.
Document StorageGo paperless! Organize and store your electronic documents by attaching them to reservations or a customer's file. Scan and attach documents like signed waivers, proof of insurance, drivers licenses, etc... instead of filing the paper copy. Using a mobile device with a camera (iPhone, iPad, Android tablet/phone), you can also easily take pictures directly in our system and store those as well. That's handy when you want to keep pictures of each guests's RV, car, license plate numbers or even the guest themselves!
Electronic Handwritten SignaturesSpeed up your registration process by capturing guests' signatures directly on a tablet or smartphone and store the signed documents for easy retrieval.
Products/Add-onsCross sell add-ons like firewood, boat slip rental or trailer storage. Allow your guests to charge extras to their site and pay on check-out.
Group ReservationsEasily accommodate group reservations. Book as many sites as needed under a single reservation or multiple reservations under a single group.
Site Relocation ToolMoving guest reservations to a new site is quick and easy with our visual tools. Need to move guests in the middle of their stay? It's easy to split reservations and even swap sites between two different reservations.
Customized Data CaptureYou decide how much or how little information you want about your guests and their reservations.
Marketing Campaign ToolNew and improved!Encourage previous guests to visit again with our built-in email marketing tools. Generage targeted email marketing lists based on the sites that are still available. Send and track email marketing campaigns and view metrics such as number of successful deliveries, opens, Click Through Ratio, bounces, invalid email addresses, etc...
Robust Reservation ManagementSort, filter and search features allows you to quickly locate available sites or find customers. Easily block out sites for maintenance activities or special activities.
Set up one or more kiosks using any modern tablet and use this new feature to give your guests a modern, speedy and convenient check-in experience. Registration delays and data entry errors can be alleviated by allowing your guests to enter or confirm their information for themselves. An after-hours kiosk will let your guests find their reservation, check-in and receive the information they need for their stay.
Quick QuotesQuickly quote prices for call-ins or online.
Unlimited SitesOur unique architecture means that the system can handle 5 sites or 1000+ campground sites with ease. List as many site types and amenities as you need to best describe your campground sites and rates accordingly.
Unique Color ThemesCreate your own color schemes to quickly identify reservations that need your attention. Flexible rules allow you to set the colors based on your own unique criteria.
Flexible PricingAutomated site rate calculations with tons of flexibility gives you total control over your pricing. A customizable rules engine means we can support just about any pricing model.
