Creating Your Campground Logo

Whether your campground is a nationwide business or just a small local campground, you’ll need a great logo if you want more guests to spend the night.

Don’t worry — we have you covered. Read this guide to know exactly what makes a logo effective, and you’ll have to put up your no vacancy sign.

Color Matters

Color doesn’t just make your logo look good; it makes your potential customers feel a certain way. It’s called color psychology, and it states that colors can alter human emotions. For example, consumers associate the color blue with trust and find it calming.

Color psychology is why color matters so much. For example, KOA is one of the most popular, if not the most popular, campground chains in the country. Because KOA has been called the “king of camping” and has kept the family tradition of camping alive for years, it’s no surprise it has a memorable logo.

The KOA logo uses yellow and red, which are very bright and grab the consumer’s attention. KOA wants to grab consumers’ attention by seeing the sign and pulling over to spend a night at its campsites.

If a national campground business with hundreds of locations can attract customers with memorable colors in its logo, you can also tap into color psychology and do the same when designing a logo for your campground.

Every Logo Needs Personality

Giving a logo personality is easier than you might think and is as simple as adding icons or symbols. The best icons take the brand name or service and represent it in the simplest way possible.

Dufour’s campground in Wisconsin is a good example; it uses an RV camper as the symbol in its logo. Since this campground specializes in RV campsites, it makes sense to use an RV as its icon. This makes it as easy as possible for the consumer to know what service Dufour’s provides.

If you’re having trouble thinking of an icon for your logo, just think about what makes your campground unique or different from your competition, then create an icon representing that for your customers.

Fonts Make or Break a Logo 

The right font can make a great logo; the wrong font can ruin one. Fonts transform the overall look and feel of a logo to the consumer and can be what ultimately persuades them to either spend money at your campground or go to the competition.

There are two main font families; serif and sans serif. Serif fonts, like Times New Roman, have an extra stroke at the end of their letters, while sans-serif fonts, like Helvetica, do not. 

Campgrounds are often well-established heritage brands, so it’s not uncommon to see a serif font used in such logos. They help a brand feel more mature to the consumer. However, it’s also not unusual to see sans serif fonts in this industry.

Thousand Trails is a campground chain with 80 locations nationwide. This company has a good logo because it is simple, but the serif font it uses feels mature and even outdoorsy. This is effective for the company because it wants to appeal to lifelong campers and strengthen brand loyalty with that target audience.

Choosing a font can be tricky, but all you have to do is put yourself in the shoes of your potential customer and think about what would persuade them to come to your campground instead of the competition.

Follow this guide step-by-step to create an excellent logo for your campground, and watch your guestbook start to fill up.

1. Enter Your Business Name and Tagline

The TRUiC campground logo generator requires you to add your business’s name and optionally a tagline, or slogan, to help generate your logo.

2. Choose a Type of Logo Design, Font, and Color Scheme

When designing your logo, you’ll have to choose between having a logo with a graphic or a text only campground logo.

Option 1: Graphic

This type of logo displays your business name with a themed campground graphic that will be displayed in a few different layouts. The graphic will either sit next to your business name, or it will sit above it.

After choosing this, you’ll need to choose your favorite font style and color pallet to generate your first set of logo choices.

Option 2: Text 

This type of logo displays your business name or just the initials of your business name in a stylized way using creative fonts and typography

After this, you’ll choose a color pallet and generate your logo choices.

Things to Consider When Picking a Logo

Your company logo can convey different meanings depending on the logo design you choose so try branding your company with a logo sporting symbols, icons, and/or fonts that clearly represents what you’re selling to your customers (e.g., use a coffee cup in the logo for a coffee shop).

Color Psychology - The colors in your business logo design can help define the mood of your business. Consider which color scheme will best represent your logo design when using the color editor and creating your company brand with our logo maker.

  • Warm colors such as red, orange, pink, brown, beige, and yellow are considered to be inviting or exciting.
  • Cool colors like blues, greens, and purples convey a relaxing mood in a brand relating to the ocean or a calming atmosphere. 
  • Black and white provide great contrast when branding your business and are easy to see and read. 

Accessibility - There are basic rules when it comes to creating an effective and accessible logo design. 

  • The font you choose should be easy for customers to read and recognize. 
  • Color contrast is vital for the readability of your business logo.

Icons vs. symbols to make your own logo design - Symbols can help to represent your business, like products you sell or the type and quality of service you offer; it’s like a visual metaphor for your logo design.

For example, a logo design for a CBD oil shop could be depicted as a leaf; the symbolism being that it’s earthy, organic, natural, or all of these. Or, if you own a computer store, you can create a logo design that has the icon of a computer, it can really be that simple.

Font style - Choosing the right font for a logo design is important since fonts capture the attention of customers and show what they can expect from your company. 

If you own a more formal business, such as an accounting firm, you’ll likely want to choose a font that is more minimalistic and professional. If you’re opening a business such as a toy store, you’ll probably want to choose a font that is more fun and whimsical.

What is the difference between copyright, trademark, and patent?

Copyright, trademark, and patent are all types of intellectual property (IP)  that do different things: 

Copyrights are often used by artists to protect their creative work; if someone copyrights their work (e.g., novel, song, etc.), they own the rights to be able to do what they want with it, from selling to recreating.

A trademark, according to the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), is a word, phrase, symbol, and/or design that identifies and distinguishes the source of the goods of one party from those of others. Trademarks are commonly used for logos and slogans.

Patents are used to protect inventions and ideas. For instance, if someone creates a type of machine or tool, a patent can grant rights to the inventor so no one can use their invention/idea without permission.
