About the Project
Vista Recreation (formerly Recreation Resource Management) operates over 700 campgrounds and recreation areas across 16 states. In 2017, I completely redeveloped and redesigned their corporate website while consolidating various campground websites into the new main site.
Content Management System
The ability to easily manage hundreds of campgrounds and their unique attributes was a primary objective for the new website. For this reason, ProcessWire was chosen as the CMS given its strong support for custom fields and data relationship abilities. Each campground contains a number of different attributes, from available features, facilities, photos and location information. Furthermore, each campground belongs to a particular region, which in turn belongs to a specific state. The result is a campground catalog that provides visitors with a straight-forward user experience.
An interactive map was developed that allows users to find a campground in the region they desire. Marker clustering was implemented to allow groupings of campgrounds as the map zoom level is changed.
Website editors can develop rich content pages without code using a page builder that supports dynamic data. The page builder adheres to the design system of the website, leading to a consistent and branded look.
