Useful Apps for Truck Campers

Apps make accessing information quick and relatively easy. They range from providing independent campgrounds, National/State Forest, National Parks, State Parks, Public Lands, Army Corps of Engineers, Military/County/City Parks, casinos, and boondocking sites.

Not all Truck Camping Apps are the same.

The amenities included in various Apps may or may not include all the information you need to make an informative decision. Amenities for campgrounds and RV parks may include rate range, the number of sites, available hookups (electrical amperage, water, and dump on site), club discounts (Good Sam, Passport America, Escapees, KOA, 1,000 Trails, Resorts of Distinction, AOR, Coast to Coast), toilets/restrooms, tables, pool, playground, laundry, propane, pet-friendly, age-restricted, boat launch, trails, internet access water, and more.

Most Apps are free; however, they may contain ads. Some apps may charge a small fee to avoid ads.
