I use the following apps:

Passport America
Dish Pointer Pro
Free RV Campgrounds
Waze
GPS Coordinates
KOA

These are Android. I had one that told me where dump stations were but it crapped out (no pun intended) so I have to find a new one of those.

We had a bad experience with RVParky last year, so we went back to the Good Sams Book. With the RVparky app you depending on just anybody review which can be faked.

I find Allstays to be the best thing going for finding RV parks and camp grounds. It is also handy for quick overnight stops such s Walmarts, truck stops, etc.

Crowdsourcing is prevalent in boating, which we have been doing for decades. I know all too well that many reviews need to be taken with a grain of salt, so to speak. If there is only one or two we know that we take a chance. If there are several, we know to look for a trend or common complaint. But thanks for the input. Chuck

I have rv parky, all-stays, KOA and maybe one or two others but almost always double check rv parks review. Even with the new format difficult to navigate.
