Online presence for a camping business can contribute to its success in lots of ways. Website for a campground or a camping equipment store gives your customers a chance to book their stay in advance and purchase or pre-order necessary gear.
The pre-ordering option, at the same time, lets campsite owners process the incoming reservations and make sure they are able to consider all the preferences of their clients and prepare everything needed to deliver excellent service.
If you are looking for a WordPress theme to build a truly well-set camping website, we recommend making sure it’s equipped with the following features:
- pre-made custom posts or pages for presenting your rentals, amenities, additional services, activities or products (they will save you a lot of time when filling your website with content)
- online booking system
- Google map to mark the units (rentals/facilities/etc.) of your campsite on
- blog segment for enhancing user engagement and sharing latest news.
Sure thing, the more of the boxes a camping template for your soon-to-be website can tick, the better investment it would be, so it always pays to search for the most feature-rich one.
But there’s one catch – the choice of WordPress software for the camping niche is so far rather modest: if you type ‘camping’ in the search box of the WP.org theme repository, everything you are going to get is by now just one single result.
So today we decided to gather premium WordPress templates dedicated to outdoor activities and greatly hope our collection will facilitate your search for the proper WordPress camping theme.

Nevertheless, we still include the template to our camping themes collection, mostly because it allows presenting of both single property rentals and multi-unit ones. That means you will be able to, let’s say, use the theme for renting out both private camping pitches, caravans or tents and camping houses of multiple occupation.
