Reserving a Campground

The "fullReservationUrl" should be linked to in order to guide the user to,'s campground reservation system, to make the campsite reservation.  As of now, reservations cannot be realized through the API.

API Parameters


"contractCode" is a syonym for contractID, which is what is returned by the Campground Search API.  It specifies the jurisdiction for the campground.  This parameter must be used in conjuction with parkId.

parkId: Facility ID

"parkId" is a synonym for "facilityID", which is returned by the Campground Search API.  It is a unique identifier for the campground.  For example, a Campgrounds Search API request for parks in Colorado might return the Mueller State Park as a matching record:

  facilityName="MUELLER STATE PARK" 

A call to the Campground Details API to get more information about this campground looks like this:

where contractID="CO" is mapped to contractCode=CO, and facilityID="50032" is mapped to parkId=50032.

    Why is contractCode required for results when parkId is provided?

  2. active Admin11 years ago

    facilityIDs are not universally unique. They are only unique within the context of a contractCode.

  3. Ray Watkins11 years ago

    Why do I always get the information below (404 page not found) when I use the link constructed as you show above for the reservation page. Yet when I do a search from the ReserverAmerica site it takes me to the correct page using the same link? Is this a scam to get the user to log in?

    page not found
    404 - Document Not Found
    Don't worry (it's our fault - we've moved it).

    The page you wanted is just a click or two from here:

    •Start at the home page
    •Find a place to camp or stay
    •Search the map
    •Sign-in and check your reservations

  4. Ray Watkins11 years ago

    Figured it out, the reservation url in the documentation is shown as [;parkId=50032] that seems to fail every time. Even if you click on it in this page. However the following does work;
    [] Note that I've replaced campsiteSearch with campgroundDetails and the urlencoded ampersand (&amp;) with just the ampersand (&). Not sure why it works this way. But it does.

  5. active Admin11 years ago

    Cool. Let us know if you run into any more issues.

    The following query:

    Returns a reservation url:


    A url that points to localhost isn't going to succeed...

  7. active Admin10 years ago

    Well, that's just embarrassing. I've got engineering on it. Stay tuned for an update to the API.

  8. melitele9 years ago

    When I use my api_key for Campground API I get a different result then with the example api_key: both fullReservationUrl and reservationUrl point to followed parameters containing my Active affilite ID.

    Both urls get the response "403 - Error AFID not allowed"...

    What api_key should I use to get valid reservation urls?

  9. jarredd9 years ago

    Hi Melitele,

    It looks like your affiliate account was not yet setup to run this Campgrounds API campaign (CID 177360) in the Affiliate Center and this caused the issue. However, I have updated your account status so you should now see this campaign in your affiliate center after logging in and clicking the “My Offers” section.

    If you are still having trouble, please let me know.

    Best regards,


    Technical Account Manager, ACTIVE Network

    Hi, I have generated my link to a Campground Detail, and have the API link with my key code. How do I place that into my WordPress blog? Now if I place it in Firefox, it is an ugly xml file. And in Safari, it does not even show a content, just a blank page. Ideas?
