Definition of campground

An area in which people can camp, typically comprised of multiple campsites. These might offer amenities like places to wash, outhouses or toilets, and possibly hookups. Some campgrounds also provide a visitor’s center and a guesthouse. (A campground might be part of a larger park that contains other campgrounds.)

The above is an entry in Campnab’s Pretty Darned Useful Glossary of Camping Terms. This glossary is another project from us, the two Erics (@shelkie and @karj). We had a harebrained idea to create a dictionary containing every single camping term we came across. Admittedly, this is taking some effort—and leaving us with less time for camping. D’oh!
