Campground finder app for Android smartphone

I did a search for Android apps for Campgrounds. Threads I found were more than a year old and apps are developing at warp speed these days!

What late and great app are you using currently that you can recommend. I would like to have something on the smartphone that I can use and trust on the road while underway.

I did install "We Camp Here" last night and it failed the first test I gave it. Looked for a state park a friend uses and it didn't show up.

Allstays has the best app going.

They not only point out the campgrounds, there's user defined options to point out WalMarts, propane and other POI's campers need.

Great investment!

Murrey,
Looks like Allstay has six apps - one for Walmart, one for dumps, etc.


There is one called "Camp and RV - Campgrounds Plus" - cost is $9.99

I am betting this one has all the content the others have but not sure.

Is that the one you use and recommend?
Thanks

The RV Parky App also provides WalMarts and rest areas, and it's free.

We like the CampWhere app, for all public campgrounds.

Good for droid and iPhones, and iPad.

The Allstays camp and rv app is great. Somewhat expensive but worth every penny.

Ray, when I follow the links (using my iPad), I arrive at an app that is $4.99. Is there a free version?

Hey Brian,
I have not been able to find any info on google on " RV PARKY".
Could it have some other name?

Dennis

I stand corrected....the iphone APP I mentioned is indeed $5 now...I believe it may have been 'free' initially...I've got it on my iphone 4g...works great even if it now costs $5 - it would be even better to use with the ipads larger screen...

I see they mention that the Android is web based...don't know how that works, don't have one...sorry...

Searched using the app store on the phone and also used the PC with no luck finding this one. Is the name correct?
