RoverPass is the RVer’s Online Travel Agency
RVers can search and book thousands of campgrounds thanks to a winning combination of software plus human travel agents and a stellar customer support team. We also supply campgrounds and RV parks with free tools and services to help them succeed online, including the free RoverPass Booking System to manage reservations.
The campground industry is a true all-American, small-business community. The family business atmosphere has a charm hard to find in other, commercially driven, travel sectors. An industry dominated by small businesses causes a unique technology problem, though. With less properties owned by corporations, there's less widely dispersed booking technology. That's why there isn't an Expedia for campgrounds and RV parks. RoverPass is here to solve this problem with easy-to-use, free software for campgrounds along with travel agents to help RVers.
