IRVCA – Idaho's RV Tourism Industry Voice – Your Association at Work!
Idaho RV Campgrounds Association (IRVCA) is the non-profit professional trade association for Idaho’s RV Parks and Campgrounds, and has proudly represented and promoted the state’s camping and tourism industries since 1981. IRVCA’s marketing program promotes Idaho camping to the 30 million RVers on the road today, and benefits all campgrounds by bringing new campers and increased RV-tourism spending to Idaho each year.
How Is IRVCA Funded?
IRVCA’s primary funding source is an Idaho Travel Council (ITC) grant, which is funded by the statewide 2% lodging tax. ITC grants must be used to develop and implement a tourism marketing program that increases awareness of Idaho’s camping industry and generates interest and inquiries for information about Idaho’s RV parks and campgrounds. IRVCA also receives a grant from the Idaho Recreation and Tourism Initiative (IRTI), whose funds are generated, in part, by RV licensing fees. Grants fund program costs only and cannot be used for overhead or personnel costs.
IRVCA’s organizational expenses are funded by your association membership dues. Please become a member today and support the ongoing work of the organization that works solely to promote and support your campground!

Social Media: Connect to a new group of followers by promoting your campground’s news and event information on IRVCA’s Facebook and Twitter feeds! Here’s how:
"Like" us on Facebook. If your campground has a Facebook Page, we’ll add it to our Friends list. Once you've become our Friend, we'll see the relevant items you post and we will repost them on our Timeline, which offers a wonderful collection of comments, articles, and event notifications, etc. from across the state and from popular RV publications. It’s a great way to connect and to tell everyone why RVers love Idaho!
Twitter feeds are automatic! Everything we post on Facebook automatically goes to our Twitter account as well. That means you get the added value of reaching out to the global Twitter audience without having to do anything at all! Even if you have your own Twitter account, you'll reach a whole new group of followers via @RVIdaho.
Don’t use Facebook or Twitter? No problem – use ours! Email us your news and event information and we will post it for you! Information must include: dates, times, location addresses, and any contact websites or email addresses that should be included so that interested readers can contact you for more information. Be sure to also submit your name, your campground or organization name, and your contact phone number in case we have questions. Please remember that news and events must be of interest to the RV traveling public (no fundraisers, swap meets, etc.). Email your news/event info to: TourNews1@yahoo.com.
