Best Campground Apps

We have used the CampWhere app for a couple of years, supplementing with hard copy Trailer Life and Passport America directories.

They are in the trash, we are again lighter & more space-efficient.........

Passport America now has an App! Free!

We have loved CampWhere for public campgrounds around the country. Have found very few errors.

We have added Allstays, highly recommended here. It duplicates some of CampWhere, but includes private campgrounds.

I use Allstays on my Android tablet. But since I'm a member of Passport America, I'll have to check out their Android app.

I use AllStays too and love it. Trip Advisor has campground reviews that I like - I can usually get a good sense of what the campground is like. ( ie privacy/ no privacy, quiet or rowdy, well maintained vs not etc)

AllStays Camp and RV hands down. Good Sam for quick ratings and area searches.

A feature I really like on the CampWhere app ($4.99), which is not available on Allstays ($9.99), is the ability to "star" sites on the map.

If you are looking for national forest sites with dump stations or other features, for example, you can locate and mark these ahead of time on your map.

And, then plan accordingly.

I have an iphone 4s and I just got a new ipad, but can't find "camp where" or "campwhere" in the app store. Am I doing something wrong? How would I find this app to download onto ipad???

Try using "Allstays" in the search and it'll come up.

Slightly off subject but in line with good Apps. A very informative blog to check out is Technomadia.com by Cherie Ve Ard &Chris Dunphy. They are tech wise fulltimers who write apps among other things. They have a very good publication about going nomadic, mobile internet, and state lines. Although they are not Airstreamers they are currently in a cool vintage bus.

Campwhere and Allstays are two separate and different apps.

I find Allstays in the app store easily, with camping search, but can't find CampWhere anywhere. i copied the link from my own app, which still works, BTW, and get a message that this item is not currently available in the USA.

You can access the same information at ALL US AND CANADA CAMPGROUNDS LOCATOR: STATE PARKS NATIONAL PARKS FORESTS MORE california oregon washington new york pennsylvania more

We use this almost every day when we are traveling.

It looks like The CampWhere app has been discontinued. It's no longer available on the App store and the folks who make it, bignerdranch.com, are not listing it on their website.

I use the Allstays app quite a bit, but it is not very comprehensive. I know of quite a few campground around here (Maine) that are not listed.

We have been using the Android App RVPARKY. We used it exclusively on our recent 9 week northeastern trip, and found it indispensable. It is also available as RV Parky | RV Parks & Campgrounds Directory, Reviews, Photos. This is the best campground app that we have ever used. We have thrown away our printed RV directory.

That is a great app, Brian! Very inclusive.

I loved pitching the bulky campground books, too.
