Firstly, thanks for contributing. I would be grateful if you could follow the guidelines below where possible :
1> Please don't contribute camping spots which might encourage people to overnight in unsuitable places or behave in an antisocial manner.
2> Try to be inventive with the name of the camping spot rather than simply using the place name. For instance "Lake Windermere Recreation Area" is much more useful than simply "Lake Windemere".
3> This website will allow camping spots to be contributed without photos, but in truth they are really important to our site visitors. Any photos you submit will be automatically re-sized to fit the website, but the orginals will still be stored on our server taking up valuable storage space. It helps me therefore if the photos are taken on a low resolution setting ( most digital cameras allow a small 1024x768 setting which is great ).
4> Whilst I appreciate that not everyone has a sat nav or GPS, the latitude and longitude co-ordinates allow the camping spot to be plotted on a Google Map for our Map Search feature. If you don't have a sat nav it usually possible to locate the spot using Google satellite images and determine the lat/lon. I have posted a tutorial here http://www.worldofwildcamping.com/content/how-to-find-gps-coordinates-fo....
5> When contributing a camping spot the latitude and longitude co-ordinates need to be entered in a decimal degree format ( your gps device may display them in one of a number of intimidating formats ). Decimal format looks like a normal decimal number such as 117.7425, rather than the degrees minutes and seconds format which looks like 123°30'00"W. To simply convert to a decimal format please use the following co-ordinate calculator http://www.gpscoordinates.eu/convert-gps-coordinates.php.
