How to design a map for your caravan park

How do i design a map for my caravan site, campsite or holiday park?

We’ll design you a totally bespoke site-plan for your holiday park, caravan park or campsite in only 2 days. You might have a 10 pitch campsite on the banks of a fishing lake or a 500 plot static park by the coast, a high quality park map is an essential part of your marketing literature. First impressions count and your visitors will likely see your park map before they see your reception. Get us to design you a professional site plan and you won’t regret it. We recorded our screen while designing a relatively simple holiday park map and sped it up by a huge amount so you could see what was involved in each map we design. This only shows how to design the initial proof, from this point we may need to amend and reproof a number of times in order to get it just the way you want it.

From a hand drawn Caravan Park Map sent in by a customer..

Our customers will typically have something they’ve been using for years that someone at the park drew by hand or created using Microsoft Publisher. You can see below a real example of such a map.

We study Aerial Photography and Planning Applications.

Parks often have their own aerial photography or we can study publicly available online photography to see where the actual boundaries of a holiday park are. We sometimes use drones or our own foot launched aircraft to take photographs of the site for reference purposes.

We design an initial map proof and ask for amendments.

We design a very simple plan of the park in and send this out to the customer for them to amend. You have much better knowledge of how your caravan park is laid out so we ask you to sketch on the map any features we have missed or things that need changing and then send this back to us. You don't need to scan this, you can simply take a picture of your sketches and send the rough copy back to us.

Through the final map proofing process to delivery.

Once we've got the design pretty much perfect, we start to add some colour, 3D trees and buildings and get the map and pitches all numbered up so the map is easy to navigate. Once you give us final approval on the design, we send the completed artwork out to you in a variety of different file formats suitable for commercial printers, website designers, printing from your computer or emailing to your guests.

I needed help in identifying the ideal delivery area based on socio-economic demographics and other parameters. GB Maps prepared a bespoke map and provided significant support throughout the work project. I could not have done it without them, excellent job!
