Allstays Camp & RV app works for locating campgrounds etc. If you are looking for a good RV/Truck GPS system I do not have a good answer, however, I am interested in what others have to say.

Allstays, all the information is available free from other sources but it is nice to have it all in one place. For interested military folks their Military Campground app is free.

Google maps is what we use. We like that it now shows red when there is traffic, and that it also shows road closures. If you are traveling on routes you have never been on, you could also use Msps 3D to see a 3D topo veiw of the route. We took an alternate route years back that lead us into a windy steep road that we would have avoided if we would have know how bad it was.
I am curious to hear what others are using!

AllStays actually has several apps, including "Camp & RV" to locate campgrounds, "Truck & Travel" to locate truck stops, "Overnight Parking Walmart" to find any Walmart and indicate if it allows overnight parking, "Camp & Tent" for those people looking for tent-only campgrounds, "RV Dumps" to locate dump stations, "Rest Stops Plus" to locate highway rest areas, "Military Camp & RV" for military campgrounds, "Finding Costco" to find Costco stores, and a few others.

They all work together as well. If you load multiple AllStays apps onto your phone and/or tablet, you can display them all on the same map at the same time, or use the "filter" function to only display the categories you want to see. No need to switch from one app to the next to find campgrounds and Walmarts, for example.

Another vote for AllStays.

I also love the PocketEarth app for navigation, which allows you to drop colored bullets at locations of your choice, also tracks your movement real-time, internet signal or not.

Another great app for selecting individual campsites to reserve (or for just getting a feel for the atmosphere of a campground) is CampsitePhotos.com. Not all campgrounds are included since it depends on uploads from individual campers but I am finding that more and more are. Many thanks to a dedicated individual(s?) here in SC who has uploaded photos of every single campsite for each of many of our state parks.

Trucker Path is pretty good though not for finding campgrounds. It does have rest areas, fuel stops, overnight parking, rv dump stations, and links to websites for each. I use it along with Allstays.

Someone else mentioned Harvest Host to me recently but it looks like their website has expired. It sounded like a great app.

Campendium just celebrated their first year anniversary and they continue to get better. All-Stays is the classic.

We like and use Allstays. I also have found Googling RV campgrounds for towns and cities also works well to find some that are not on Allstays. I did that and found a fairly new and very nice campground near Alexandria, La that was not on Alstays. The owner told me that, at the present time, they could not afford to pay the required fee to be listed. Not every RV campground you will find on any website is as nice as advertised. We have come across some real dumps.

GPS for towing

Co-Pilot is a GPS system used by a lot of truckers. You can select your default vehicle and it will route you based on your vehicle's overall size. Google Maps has gotten us into to tight spots or taken us under low clearance bridges.
