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

Requirements
By submitted photos, you give CampsiteReports.com permission to use the photos for the website and marketing purposes.
  • Photos must be at least 640 x 480 in resolution for landscape, or 480 x 640 for portrait.
  • There is an 12 MB maximum file size limit.
  • Photos need to be jpg format. (check the file extension)
  • The photos must accurately represent the campground or campsite for which you are submitting.
  • Do not submit any explicit, suggestive, offensive, or improper photos.
  • The photo should be one you took with your own camera, and not from the campground's website.
  • Photos should not be blurry.
  • Campsite photos should be of vacant sites, or sites with no vehicles or people.

  • Recommendations

  • Good photos of campgrounds will include signs, buildings, amenities, attractions, scenery, playgrounds, swimming areas, and any other points of interest.
  • Landscape photos are preferred over portrait style.
  • Widescreen shots are welcomed and encouraged.

  • The best way to take photos of campsites is to:
    1. Take a photo of the campsite's identifying sign.
    2. Step back and take an overview shot of the whole campsite and its surroundings.
    3. Walk into the campsite and take shots from different angles. Be sure to capture items of interest such as the fire pit, picnic table, and tent area.
    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 photos in the order of when you took them.
  • To upload your photos, simply use the photo 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 again 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 clearly visible in part of the photo and the campsite and some of its surroundings are also in the photo.
