Base Rates

Campground Rates also known as Base Rates controls the cost associated with your lots. Camping rates are broken down in four tiers (Nightly, Weekly, Monthly and Seasonal).

There are no set limits to the number of base rates you can add.

Base rates naming convention

The camping rate naming convention is what you will use and reference the rates by when associating them to your lots.

The name you choose should be descriptive enough so you can easily identify the rate to a lot type.

Example: lets say you would like to add a new camping rates for your tent sections. Then a recommended camping rate naming convention would be.

  • Tent rates
  • Tent rates without service
  • Tent rates with service

Try not to include the camping rates in the naming convention. However, if you prefer to add the camping rates in the naming convention then don't forget to also update the camping rate name when updating your camping rates in the future.

Base Rates Tiers

The four tiers are used to determine the price of the lots based on the number of nights reserved.

  • Nightly this is the price associated to a 1 night reservation.
  • Weekly rates are based on a 7 nights reservation.
  • Monthly rates are based on a 28 nights reservation.
  • Seasonal rates are used to calculate the camping rates for the entire seasonal period. The seasonal period of your campground are defined in the campground parameters

If a camping rate tier is left empty or zero then the camping rate tier for that entry will be skipped when performing the lot calculating for that rate tier.

Example 1: Let's say that you have a base camping rate called Weekenders and you only want this tier to calculate prices based on nightly price tier.

  • Then you would enter 0.00 for (Weekly, Monthly and Seasonal) price tiers.
  • Enter 1 for the Minimum number of nights.
  • That way only the Nightly rates will be used when calculating the lot price.

Example 2: Let's say that you have a camping rate called Seasonal Only and you would only want this camping tier to be used by your seasonal lots.

  • Then you would enter 0.00 for the (Nightly, Weekly and Monthly) price tiers.
  • Enter the the minimum number of nights this price tier would be used for. This number should be equal or less than the number of nights of your seasonal dates.
  • Enter the seasonal rate in the Seasonal price tier to be used by this rate when a reservation is greater or equal to the number of nights entered in the Minimum number of nights.

Example 3: Let's say that you have a camping rate called Pull through and you would want to give your campers a price break based on the number of nights reserved.

  • Then you would enter your (Nightly, Weekly and Monthly) price tiers accordingly and leave the Seasonal price at 0.00 OR enter the Seasonal price to be used should the total amount of their stay surpass this amount.

Nightly Pice: $35.00

Weekly Price: $210.00

Monthly Price: $630.00

Seasonal Price: $2520.00

  • Enter 1 for the Minimum number of nights.
  • Here's what the client would be charged for a:

    • 2 nights reservation:

      - 2 nights at the (Nightly rate * 2) = $70.00
      - Total: $70.00
    • 9 nights reservation:

      - 7 nights at the (Weekly rate * 1) = $210.00
      - (+) 
      - 2 nights at the (Nightly rate * 2) = $70.00
      - Total: $280.00
    • 16 nights reservation:

      - 14 nights at the (Weekly rate * 2) = $420.00
      - (+) 
      - 2 nights at the (Nightly rate * 2) = $70.00
      - Total: $490.00
    • 40 nights reservation:

      - 28 nights at the (Monthly rate * 1) $630.00
      - (+) 
      - 7 nights at the (Weekly rate * 1) = $210.00
      - (+) 
      - 5 nights at the (daily price * 5) = $175.00
      - Total: $1015.00

price info

The Seasonal Rate is the highest amount that can be charged for a reservation if not zero. If the reservation total surpasses the Seasonal Rate value then the seasonal rate will be used as the final price.

Min Night Rental

The min night rental on a price tier controls if the lots associated to the base price will be displayed when searching for available lots.

Example: Let's say that you are creating a reservation for a two night stay. Then only lots associated to a base price having a Min Night Rental value of 2 or less will be listed.
