The California Parks Company Rebrands as Basecamp Hospitality
New Brand Reflects Company’s New Sustainability Positioning
and Operations in Arizona, California, Oregon, Utah and Wyoming

San Francisco Bay Area, California (Dec. 6, 2018) – What’s in a name? A lot, says John Koeberer, CEO and Chairman of Basecamp Hospitality, formerly known as The California Parks Company. Basecamp Hospitality serves as the official concessioner for approximately 20 parks and marinas in California, Oregon, Arizona, Utah and Wyoming.

“It was time to find a name that better reflected our positioning and geographic expansion,” said Koeberer. “Our company is growing fast, and we’re adding parks from across the western U.S. on a regular basis. We’re now in five states, and the new name reflects our outdoor parks niche and our philosophy of being a friendly and sustainably focused gathering place before your adventure begins.”

As part of the rebrand to Basecamp Hospitality, the company is planning a series of renovations to enhance the meeting, event and recreation spaces across the parks. They also hired a Sustainability Coordinator to ensure the company exceeds standards for practices that are friendly to the earth and community. They aim to build on their recent sustainability successes, such as earning the Clean Marina designation and an upcoming Leave No Trace program at Katherine Landing at Lake Mohave.

Currently Basecamp Hospitality handles concessions—from recreational and retail to hospitality and event management services—for partners at local, state and national agencies:
