WACO Member Advertising Opportunities


Take a look at all the avenues WACO has to offer you as a member to advertise your campground to a large audience of active campers! Contact us today with any questions or to get started on any of the advertising programs!


Full List of Advertising Opportunities

New! Augmented Reality Directory Listing!

Capture Campers interest with a video ad in the 2020 WACO Camping Directory! Turn your printed ad into a video commercial that plays inside the WACO Camping Directory!

You can also choose to add a “book now” button to your listing that takes campers directly to your website!


How it works: Your ad listing in the directory will include a QR code and campers will access the augmented reality camera by scanning that QR code. Augmented reality is supported on 3G and newer iPhones and most Andriod devices.

To participate, please download the form below and return to the WACO office by Monday November 18th!
