AllStays has a wealth of information about campgrounds, service stations and businesses of interest to campers.

GasBuddy is great for comparing gas prices.

Waze is a Google product that activity updates road conditions as you travel.

All three of these apps are worth looking at.

I use rvparkreviews to find campgrounds and read reviews. I use the good sam site to compare their ratings of the campgrounds. I don't know if rvparkreviews has an aap as I'm not a smart phone user.

Remember its not the destination, but rather the journey.... its what's in the middle that matters the most!

I use All Stays. It can be a little cumbersome, but I find a lot of good info.

I also like Passport America. Plus you get 50% off daily rates.

One more vote for AllStays. ReserveAmerica and Recreation.gov for most state and federal park reservations respectively. Some states (e.g. Montana, SD) use their own system, but you can find that in AllStays

One additional thought... If you want to get a better idea of what specific sites look like, ReserveAmerica and recreation.gov frequently have pictures. Others may be found with a Google search and select images, google maps (satellite view) or campsitephotos.com

I have looked at Allstays and guess for some reason like others better. Try Campendium..it has everything. Natl Parks, Forest Service, Private and many services.

Campendium.com is excellent and made by airstreamers. We used it all the time when were were full-timing. Don't know if it comes as an app or not.

Thanks badkat & aluminitus!

Campendium doesn't have an app yet, but is mobile-friendly so it works on smart-phones and tablets.

Airstream recently did a nice write-up:

Gas Buddy works good as long as the reports have been updated. It seems to time out the prices if it's been too long between reports. Sometimes less than 8 hours it will not show the price.

I'll have to load up AllStays.

Rvparky. It's free, and has been very helpful in our travels.

We use diesel and prefer truck stops with fuel islands, for us it makes easy in and outs. For fueling locations we use dieselboss.com. Type in the state and road info, and it will ID truck stops and the services available (DEF available at pump) along with a map. May or may not be the best, but seems to work.
