Most Common FAQ:

Q: How does Grid Optimization work?

Grid Optimization moves reservations to new sites on your grid when the system finds a way to make less gaps. The optimization of your grid increases revenue potential.

Q: Are all reservations optimized all the time?

Campspot will only optimize sites up to 72 hours (3 days) of a reservation check in date.

Q: When does the system start optimizing?

If you or your guest are making a New Reservation, Campspot will "visually" move sites to show an opening that would fit the reservation. This optimization is completed when the site is added to the cart, if it is not added to the cart, nothing will have changed in the Grid. So optimization starts during the reservation process to fill gaps and continues until 3 days prior to arrival.

Q: What does Grid Optimization consider when moving my reservations around?

Site Type Reservations will only be moved to other sites within the same Site Type.
RV or Site Length

The system will not move a reservation from a site that has a shorter site length or shorter maximum RV length than the original site.

Grid optimization does not take the RV profile on the reservation into account , but it would not move a reservation to a site it couldn't fit on.

Site Amenities

Optimization takes into consideration the amenities that are listed for a specific site.

Example: If a reservation is on a site that has a fire pit, it would only continue to move the reservations to other sites with fire pits.

RV Slideouts Optimization will not move a reservation from a site that allows slide outs to a site that does not, regardless of RV profile.

Q: How do I know if a Reservation has been optimized?

Optimized reservations are recorded in the Reservation History section of the Reservation Summary, attributed to the System.
