Tipi.camp provides a simple campground management software and targets 25,000+ independent campgrounds all over Europe. It provides a customer-friendly booking-portal and a RESTful API for partners to integrate. The project was conceived in September 2013 when Christoph returned from vacation, disappointed because of the missed booking for their tent. And now he has created a new solution connecting campers and campgrounds with each other.
The website offers a SaaS where campgrounds can register their camp sites and campers can look at the availability of these campgrounds, check out their calendar, pick a site and make a reservation. It is also available for on-site installation if you prefer running it on your domain. Think of it as koa.com, but available to all the independent campgrounds and much more modern
The landing page is certainly very fancy:
Websites of smaller campgrounds are typically characterized by low data maintenance and absence of a booking possibility. tipi.camp has advantages:
Campgrounds get their own portal, reservations, channel management, email and much more for €1/day if they are located in Europe or $1/day if they are in US. Each campground with an Internet connection and browser (whether computer or iPad) can use the software.
In terms of the overall flow, campground owner register their campground with tipi.camp. Traveler checks out the calendar and books the campground using the responsive portal.

Pick a particular site on the campground:
