Have you ever been traveling the country in your travel trailer and find yourself wondering where the next best step would be at? Well, we have put together a list of the Best Mobile Apps for RV Camping.
There are several apps that you can browse through and get guidance on your way, whether you are looking for a campground, tourist attraction, national parks or a Walmart parking lot (I hear a lot about this lately).
1) Google Maps - FREE
This is probably the most useful app anyone can have in their arsenal, the app can be used on both Android and Apple devices and possibly more like Windows phones. Google Maps provides you with the fastest routes, it is constantly looking for a faster route or if there are traffic jams or any other hazards like work zones. With this app, you can search just about anything and everything... ANYWHERE. Set your course because this is the app to have and use when traveling. I use it at least 4 times a month. There is even a feature built in to navigate offline. I give this app a 10 out of a 10 for usefulness and functionality, the good look at feel is also a plus.
- 220+ Countries Supported
- Voice Guided GPS
- Live Traffic Conditions
- Route Optimization
- Navigate Offline
- Geographical Analysis

2) Roadtrippers - FREE
This app accesses your location and provides a list of all nearby attractions that you may be interested in visiting. These places are organized into groups like restaurants, shopping, hotels, services and more. This apps also provides feature details about your destinations, ratings, reviews, pictures and contact information. Plan trips directly from the app or on the web at roadtrippers.com, then share them with a group. Friends can add suggestions to the itinerary and travel with their favorite navigation app. Any trips you've saved or places you love will sync automatically across devices.
- Route Planning
- Trip Guides
3) RV Parks & Campgrounds - FREE
This app was developed to help people find great RV Parks in North America. The best part it's completely free with no ads.
Commercial RV Parks are sorted by rating in list view mode. This makes it extremely easy to find a good park with high ratings. I want to check this app out if you are looking to be staying in any campgrounds on your trip. This app uses local databases so it works much faster and less dependant on the internet. The only use for the internet would be to leave a review, maps, and pictures. Pretty awesome if you are going to be staying somewhere there is no internet. This app is probably the most MUST HAVE app for everyone.
