  1. Take Pictures 
 
Step #1 is the fun part! What could be more fun than going outdoors and taking pictures?
But before you do, please note the following picture requirements and recommendations.

Requirements
By submitted photos, you give CampsiteReports.com permission to use the photos for website and marketing purposes.
  • Pictures must be at least 640 x 480 in resolution for landscape, or 480 x 640 for portrait.
  • There is an 8MB maximum file size limit.
  • The pictures must accurately represent the campground or campsite for which you are submitting.
  • No explicit, suggestive, offensive, or improper photos will be posted, and should not be sent.
  • The picture should be one you took with your own camera, and not from the campground's website.
  • Pictures should not be blurry.
  • Campsite pictures should be of vacant sites, or sites with no vehicles or people.


  • Recommendations

  • Good pictures of campgrounds will include signs, buildings, attractions, scenery, playgrounds, swimming areas, etc.
  • Widescreen shots are welcomed and encouraged.
  • Landscape photos are preferred over Portrait style.

  • The best way to take pictures of campsites is to:
    1. Take a picture of the campsite's identifying sign.
    2. Step back and take a distant shot to see the whole campsite and surroundings.
    3. Walk into the campsite and take shots from different angles and note items of interest such as fire pit, tent area, and picnic table.
    4. If the site is rather large, try to keep a pivot point in each of your shots such as the fire pit or picnic table so viewers can visualize how the campsite is laid out.

    Your camera should keep pictures in the order of when you took them.
  • To upload your pictures, simply use the picture of the campsite sign you took from step 1 and submit the photos for that site until you reach a photo of the next campsite sign. Now repeat the steps for that campsite.

  • Close-up shots of just a campsite sign may not get approved.
  • However, it will likely get approved if the sign is in part of the picture and the campsite or surroundings are also in the picture.
