run into so many people who already have Allstays Camp and RV, that we
won’t spend much time telling you all the details. Suffice it to say,
if you travel the USA or Canada, and you camp or RV, this is a Must-Have
App! It has a price tag of $9.99 – and it is well worth it! You can
visit the Allstays website and
search all the campground listings for free, but if you want to be able
to look at your iPhone, iPad, or Android phone or tablet and find the
best place to park or where you are, the Allstays Camp and RV app is the
way to go.
has it all! Notice this screenshot where you can specify that you want
to see Army Corps of Engineer parks, County/City Parks, even Elks
Lodges. And this screen is just the basic list — there is also the
advanced filter where I’ve asked for Escapees, Passport America and
Thousand Trails parks specifically. It will show you Walmarts, Cracker
Barrels, Truck Stops and Rest Areas. This is my go-to App whenever we
need a place to park the RV. If Allstays can’t find you a place to park,
you’re in trouble!
you’ve located a park, just a tap will open up the detailed information
about that park. You can see their amenities and read reviews. If
you’re using it on your phone, a simple tap on the phone number will
dial for you and you can make a reservation. Once you’ve decided to go
there, another tap on the directions link and up pops your map and turn
by turn directions to get you there.
Field Trip is a virtual tour guide in
your pocket. You can configure it to sound a special alert when a point
of interest is nearby. When you're traveling down the highway, it can
alert you to historical markers nearby and give you the complete text of
that marker! You can even turn on settings that make the app read the
text to you in your phone's voice!
If you're walking around in a historic district, turn on Field Trip
and up will pop info cards on the different items of historical
interest as you walk by. Or, you can use the map view to navigate to
some far away location and learn about the points of interest there.
