The California Outdoor Hospitality Association (CalOHA) is one of the nation’s leading associations for RV parks, campgrounds, outdoor resorts, and glamping establishments.
CalOHA provides members with the tools, resources, and programs they need to be successful while ensuring that outdoor hospitality is a valued and recognized segment of travel and tourism. We work to promote the growth and development of the industry through our four pillars of success: Communications, Advocacy, Marketing, and Programs.
Our mission is to promote and protect California RV parks and campgrounds and help them be profitable while they provide a positive experience for the camping consumer. CalOHA delivers a high-level member support team as we encourage support and unity from non-member parks and industry partners alike. Through extensive member promotion, education, cost-saving programs, and legislative advocacy, CalOHA is here to serve our members and promote the growth and development of the outdoor hospitality industry. We strive to be a one-stop-shop for owners and operators.
As the industry expands so must we or risk becoming obsolete. We must diversify to grow but also remain true to our vision. Consistently at the heart of our organization is a steadfast commitment to an industry that is thriving amongst an ever-changing landscape. Yet we remain an underserved segment of travel and tourism.
The California Outdoor Hospitality Association represents unity within our industry. The more robust the industry we represent the greater our visibility and relevance in the travel and tourism sector. Without our members, our association would not be able to function as it does; the support of our members allows us to continue fighting, advocating, and promoting growth for the future of the outdoor hospitality industry.
We invite our members to share our membership brochure that outlines our programs and benefits offered to members designed to help them operate successfully and easily engage with consumers. On top of benefits and programs, members receive listings in both our consumer-facing publication, the Camper’s Guide to California, and on our consumer website, Camp-California.com.
Trust us, we know how many posts and newsletters we release each week, but you may be wondering why you, as a park owner/operator, may be receiving consumer-based news as well.
The short answer is we want you to be aware of what we are putting out into the public’s eye view. Whether you are our featured park for the week or even if we repost your content, you need to know what consumers are seeing about your business, even if it’s just for the benefit of assuring we are distributing the correct information about your park.
The biggest problem we are currently facing is our members unsubscribing from Around the Campfire because it is consumer-based, which, in turn, unsubscribes them from our industry-based newsletters as well. Obviously, it is important for you to know what is happening in the industry, so why isn’t it just as important to know what consumers are seeing as well?
We understand that keeping up with the latest trends and fads can be exhausting, but it can actually help your business in the long run. By keeping updated with our camper facing posts, you can see things you might need to change or update about your park to help accommodate and attract customers better! Viewing social media posts also allows you to see what consumers are saying about what we post and their personal views on crazes and even issues in the camping world.
All in all, our consumer-based publications and posts connect campers directly to our members' parks. By following what they see and react to, you are able to provide a more positive experience to the camping consumer!
California has initiated the process of transitioning towards a future of Electric Vehicles. By 2035, all new vehicles being introduced to California’s marketplace will need to be zero-emission. What does this mean for our industry, and how can our parks prepare for the adaptation of consumer needs?
CalOHA has teamed up with Livingston Energy Group to bring our members an informative webinar designed to get you up to speed on the world of Electric Vehicles.
