RV park App

I just finished traveling 5 states and using Good Sam directory and I found it did not list many I seen on google. I don't like parking lots and found it challenging at times. I struggled going through Utah and after I found a campground only to find a nicer one just down the road but not listed. Is there a source that displays all campgrounds?

It has been our experience that no app covers all campgrounds. We've been using RVPARKY for several years now, and are for the most part satisfied with it.

One does occasionally come across campgrounds not in the Apps, as I would guess campgrounds subscribe to be listed or not, but they are overall very inclusive, and it is so much easier to use an app than to lug around and pore thru books.

In my opinion.

Allstays is our go to app.

Ultimate US Campgrounds is what we use for non-commercial campsites - COE, Forest Service, municipal, county, state, BLM, etc. Mike

We find that Allstays lists just about every campground and we like the map feature very much.

If you have access to a web browser, Campendium is a good source for in depth reviews of various campgrounds and camping sites. Unfortunately, as of now, Campendium does not have an app, hence the need to use a browser (and their web site is not particularly mobile friendly.)

Apps

Thanks for all the replies. This last travel was a little stressfull for the wife in some spots. We stayed in some the pictures in books or website didnt represent what we were looking at..Thanks for the good resources.
I find we all do not look at things quite the same....

That's a strong point of campendium.com - they collect user ratings and reviews.

If I'm planning ahead for a spot in a certain area, campendium.com does a great job. It is, as noted, a web app so it's not great for mobile.

On the move, AllStays is superb especially on travel days in remote areas, where you want to know about *any* places to camp for the night. The realtime mapping works great, you can see when you are approaching a campsite, a WalMart, a rest stop.

I use both.

The Allstays App has Canadian listings as well. Not sure if it's as comprehensive as the U.S. listings, but it's pretty good. Of course, you need cell service (or wifi) in Canada to use this.

mapping/campground

I have searched this forum and googled myself to distraction.
Is there an app that shows elevation profiles/grades AND campgrounds? If not, which app are folks using for elevation/grade information?
We are in our third year with our 25ft FC and looking to go farther afield ...
