TXAD Internet Services Stepping Up Websites for RV Businesses

Tue Mar 14, 2017

CROWLEY, Texas - Several campgrounds, RV parks and resorts are stepping up their online marketing in advance of the summer camping season with new or updated websites, courtesy of TXAD Internet Services.

“The first few months of the year tend to be the busiest time of year for us as parks try to sharpen their marketing to capture as much potential business as they can,” TXAD Internet Services Web Director Braden Walker says, which has designed websites for many public and private parks across North America.

TXAD Internet Services’ latest website projects involve parks in Texas and California, including:

— The Hitchin’ Post RV Park and Cabins in Plainview, Texas: This brand new park in the Texas Panhandle about an hour south of Amarillo is in the process of opening. But its website at http://thehitchinpostrvpark.com/ is already generating “lots of interest” and phone calls, Park Owner Page Watkins says. The park has 79 RV sites, plus four furnished cabins and nine tent sites. Watkins says the park anticipates business from a nearby wind farm as well as snowbirds and other travelers heading north or south along Interstate 27.

— Pismo Coast Village RV Resort in Pismo Beach, California: This 400-site beachfront RV resort wanted a “fresh look” and worked with TXAD Internet Services to capture the beauty of the park with a brand new responsive and well optimized website at http://pismocoastvillage.com/. Charles Amian, Pismo Coast’s operations manager says the park hired TXAD Internet Services to create the new website because the park’s AGS affiliate had already been designing its guest guides for many years.

“The staff at TXAD Internet were really responsive to our requests and we are really happy with the new site,” Amian says. "The site is much more user friendly and allows us to make updates much easier now.”

— Sea Breeze RV Community Resort in Portland, Texas: “Sea Breeze was in desperate need of a new website and we were able to offer them a beautiful new website that is well optimized and responsive,” Walker says of the park, whose website is located at http://seabreezerv.com/.
