I have all stays as well. The app is clunky, but it has an enormous amount of information--which is why it is so clunky. Most of the information is right in the app and no data connection is needed. You can't always rely on a data connection.

You highlighted one of my annoyances with AAA. Separate state clubs, and a national club, none of which have the same rules, plans, and benefits. The state clubs are separate from the national club even though there is a central 800#, and the national club does not play nice with the state clubs. So what books are offered in CA may not be the same from other state clubs.

I haven't checked AAA WI in a while. I am not renewing my membership.

I like the Good Sam Directory for North America (USA and Canada). But I only buy one about every 5 years. Typically, campgrounds don't move! LOL! They list by state and city, so it makes it easy when trying to find a place to stay in a pinch. But it comes in really handy when planning a vacation itinerary. A quick phone call will tell me if they are still in business.

They give you directions from major highways, rate the campground in 3 categories (cleanliness/completeness/friendliness), list the amenities, number of sites, campsite surfaces (grass/gravel/paved), costs, and major nearby attractions. They also provide phone numbers and web addresses of every campground.

I find it very useful - especially when I'm in an area with little or no cell phone access, which makes my smartphone pretty dumb.

Not correct. Woodalls and AAA have worked together for several years now.. See the attached. New Woodall’s/AAA Official Campground Guides Offer Members Expanded Campground Information

I know this is true, because I've received a free copy of this for the past few years. I believe this is a national AAA publication and should be available through any local AAA state organization.

All that said, I prefer Allstays App, but I do have the Woodall's/AAA book as well. It is free for AAA members (which I know the OP said he was not a member of).

Goodsam's ... It's FREE
I also usually just google the area and go from there.

I would like to try allstays but it's $12 per app and I use both an android phone and iPad during travel.. So possibly would have to buy twice. Additionally I just read some reviews about this app and it indicates not so good for Canadians and some people complained that it was out of date (dump stations closed).
Still if the price were closer to the $3 mark, then I would try it.
