The purpose of TheTouringCamper.com is to help others in the RVing community by sharing our camping and touring experiences through reviews, touring ideas, camping hacks, menu planning, and more.
The views and opinions expressed on this website are solely ours and we do our best to always be honest and forthright in what we share. More information on our philosophy of reviewing campgrounds can be found on the About Campground Reviews page. It is important to know that our reviews are our personal opinions and may differ from your opinion. Also campgrounds change, some for the better and others for the worse. So what the campground looked like when we were there may be very different from when you visit.

Third Party Advertisement and Affiliate Links
We do have some costs associated with running a website. Thus we do accept paid advertising on our website’s sidebar and we use affiliate links in posts when they are available. Some of these third-party advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on our site, which will also give these advertisers non-personal information such as your IP address that is then generally used to target ads to specific demographics. The use of such technology by these ad companies is subject to their own privacy policies, not ours. You can choose to disable or selectively turn off cookies either in your browser settings or by managing preferences through security software.
In compliance with the EU legislation, we inform you that our website will store some information about your preferences on your own computer inside a tiny file called a ‘cookie’. A cookie is a small piece of data that a website asks your browser to store on your computer or mobile device. The cookie allows the website to “remember” your actions or preferences over time. You can delete all cookies that are already on your computer and you can set most browsers to prevent them from being placed. If you do this, however, you may have to manually adjust some preferences every time you visit a site and some services and functionalities may not work.
1) Identify you as a returning user and to count your visits in our traffic statistics analysis;
2) remember your custom display preferences;
3) Suggest any recent searches youíve made on our site
4) Other usability features including tracking whether you’ve already given your consent to cookies
Enabling cookies from our website is not strictly necessary for the website to work but it will provide you with a better browsing experience. The cookie-related information is not used to identify you personally and the pattern data is fully under our control. These cookies are not used for any purpose other than those described here.
Third Party Advertising
We may have third-party advertising companies serving ads to you when you visit our website. These companies may store information about your visits to our website and to other websites in order to provide you with relevant advertisements about goods and services. These companies may employ cookies and other identifiers to gather information which measures advertising effectiveness. The information is generally not personally identifiable unless, for example, you provide personally identifiable information to them through an ad or an e-mail message.
Information Gathered by Third Party Advertisers
Cookies enable advertisers to learn about what ads you see, what ads you click, and other actions you take on our site and other sites. This allows advertisers to provide you with more useful and relevant ads. For example, if they know what ads you are shown while visiting our site, they can be careful not to show you the same ones repeatedly. They do not associate your interaction with unaffiliated sites with your identity in providing you with interest-based ads.
We do not provide any personal information to advertisers or to third party sites. Advertisers and other third-parties (including the ad networks, ad-serving companies, and other service providers they may use) may assume that users who interact with or click on a personalized ad or content are part of the group that the ad or content is directed towards (for example, readers in the Pacific Northwest who read certain types of articles). Also, some third-party cookies may provide them with information about you (such as the sites where you have been shown ads or demographic information) from offline and online sources that they may use to provide you more relevant and useful advertising.
If you would like to learn more about what options you have about limiting the gathering of information by third-party ad networks, you can consult the website of the Network Advertising Initiative. You can opt out of participating in interest-based advertising networks but opting out does not mean you will no longer receive online advertising. It does mean that the companies from which you opted out will no longer customize ads based on your interests and web usage patterns using cookie-based technology.
