Excellent! Like all sites that depend upon user-contributed content, you need critical mass to make it work. Campendium is nearly there IMO, so more contributors only makes it better. As the webmaster of an online property myself (an electronic ski magazine), I'm heartened by what they've managed to accomplish in a mere two years. And I'm literally shocked at the content quality of the average review.
At first I held a few spots (like https://www.campendium.com/heber-mountain
) in my back pocket, selfishly thankful that some of my local stashes weren't listed on Campendium. I was even intentionally vague when I posted here at FRF
about my first trip up there this summer. But then after exchanging emails with Brian Easterling, one of Campendium's founders, I became even more grateful for what they were doing and relented.
I now make it a point to add reviews and photos of every campsite and dump station I visit.
