I found this great free app by going into the Play Store on my Verizon Samsung Android Smartphone and putting in "RV Park Finder". RV PARKY comes up as the first listing. I just tried it again.

Also on my notebook, I can get to it by going to rvparky.com.

Thanks Dennis. Your post caused me to look for RV PARKY on my notebook. At first I tried to Google it, and was coming up empty. Then I happened to look at the Android app on my phone. Right along the top of the opening page it said "RVparky.com".

I have spent the last half hour playing with it on my notebook. This thing is so much better than Woodalls, it will now be my primary source for campground information. Woodalls has kind of turned into junk in recent years. RVpary.com was a great find.

Murrey also recommended this one. I bought it to take a look out of curiosity.

Just a heads-up for others - it is an App/system of iOS origins which is being morphed to Android. It does appear to be very good and the provider indicates they are moving quickly to get the Android version up to complete speed. They just issued an update in January and promise more. They have a nice newsletter as well and also some You-Tube on how to use it (Unfortunately iOS only).

It will be interesting to watch their development efforts.

RV Park Finder (RV Parky) is outstanding for a free App. I have been playing with it and also Allstays which isn't free. As I mentioned in an earlier post here, Allstays really is an App that originated for Apple and is being morphed over to Android. It still has a bit of tuning needed. Until that tuning is done, I would recommend using RV Park Finder. It really is very good and passed most tests I could muster to see how it would work. It found a campground a friend of mine loves that other Apps don't seem to be able to locate.

I can imagine that Allstays will come up to speed in the coming months but it has a display issue on my S3 at the moment in that the icons are so small I cannot see them. I contacted the developer and I am betting he'll have it resolved soon. He tells me Android is a bit of a pain to write Apps for since there are so many variations of the device as compared to Apple.

Allstays works just fine on my Android tablet (running Android 4.0 i.e. "ice cream sandwich"). I suppose the bigger dispay screen of a tablet vs. smartphones makes the difference.

Pro - actually it is a function of screen resolution, not size. If the resolution is high, the size of the symbols is smaller. So the higher the resolution, the smaller the symbols. Therefore a high resolution Android phone is the problem and the develper is working on a fix for phones like the new Samsung S3 with very high resolution screens.

Allstays appears to be an excellent App and I am looking forward to having it work extremely well on the smartphone. Nothing against Android tablets and I have one but I keep my phone in my pocket and I want the app to work on it as well.

Actually a function of both screen size and screen resolution…

Mine is an ASUS TF700T tablet with 1920×1200 resolution on a 10.1-inch screen. Each Allstays POI icon looks to be about 1/8" across and is readable even with my old and slightly cataractish eyes.

Samsung S3 has 1280×720 display on a 4.8-inch screen. That's 5/8 the resolution, on a screen with less than 1/4 the screen area.

I leave it as an exercise for the terminally bored to figure out the actual area of one pixel for each device, but it's true that each pixel on the phone is smaller than the same pixel on the tablet, even though the tablet has a higher resolution. The Allstays POI icons would look unreadably tiny on the phone.

I will be sure and relay that to the developer so he isn't confused.
