Finding an RV Park.

I had been keeping up with the thread "do you book RV Parks or wing it" and was curious;

Where/how do find RV Parks?

Most of our travels are either based on an event we are going to or itís business related so it is more destination based rather than travel. Being fairly new to this we normally use the web to search;

1. Good Samís Club http://www.goodsamclub.com

2. RV Park Reviews http://www.rvparkreviews.com/

3. Camping Road Trip http://www.campingroadtrip.com/


These three seem to be the travel sites we use the most, I think I prefer Good Samís because the rating system is pretty accurate but RV Park has more info on smaller places. Camping Road Trip seems new but I think it will be a good one as it grows.


What do y'all use?

We also use the RV Road Atlas from Trailer Life...easy to look for good routing with CG's noted.

Passport America we also subscribe too.

Try Allstays app from the App Store for $10, it has all the campgrounds, rv parks, walmarts where you can stay and where you cannot, dump stations, cabelas, camping worlds, etc. It is geographically based so it can show you things near where you are, or you can specify an area for trip planning purposes. You can filter results by what you want. It links to a facility's website, to reviews, to pictures of any site or campground, etc.

A great app. Here's a link to a youtube video:

X3 on Allstays. It does not work on a PC. My DW has it on her smartphone, as we do not have a tablet. If we had a tablet I think it would excellent for trip planning, but as we travel without plans it will tell us where RV parks are, fuel stops, sights to see, and so forth. I primarily use Google maps while working on our routing/planning. You can email yourself your map you are working on so you can come back and work on it some more later. I see Google maps have changed and I have not used it lately, but there was a feature to show you what was is in the area of some destination point. So I would look at map, and add a destination that was say 300 miles from the previous location. Then click on a button (I do not see it on the new Google maps, but I bet it is there somewhere) to find out what was in the area, and do a search for CGs.

We use our Tom Tom. It gives the phone number and how to get there.

We use campscout.com., but we like state parks so we use the state websites. They are usually very good.

I agree with Allstays, this is a great application and will only get better as people add more campgrounds to it. I have it on my Ipad as well as my phone. It is well worth the 10 bucks you pay for it.

After picking our destination, I first check for a SP nearby. If none are available, then I look for a private CG.
