Brownout Date

Brownout dates are used to block out online calendar dates from being selected by your clients when searching for available lots.

By default the online calendar will always use your campgrounds seasonal starting/ending day and month to determine your active calendar days online. The brownout dates can be used to block out the entirety of your online calendar or just several days.


Brownout dates are also useful to prevent your most profitable weekends from being broken up by online reservations.

Example: Let's say you have a long weekend where you prefer having clients reserve from the Friday night till Monday.

  • Then by adding a brownout period from the Saturday to Sunday will block those days from your online calendar.
  • Your online clients will only have two choices:
    • To select a three night reservation starting from Friday till Monday.
    • Or call the front office to make special arrangements.

Note: The brownout dates do not appear on the calendar used by your front office, only the online calendar will reflect your brownout dates.
