The Best Websites & Apps to Find Campsites in 2022

There’s something special about a road trip. When you pack up the last of your belongings and head into the unknown, a rare sense of freedom and adventure appears at your fingertips. Some nights you will spend under the canvas of a million stars, while others may be a quick overnight stop in a convenient parking space. Either way, stories will be had, and memories will be made. 

At Four Wheel Campers, we’re here not only to help get you equipped for the road but also to provide the tools to make your adventures as epic and stress-free as possible. Our experts have combined a list of the best apps to find campsites & overnight stays, whether boondocking in your Honda CRV or hitting the road full-time in your Four Wheel Campers truck camper

The Best Websites & Apps to Find Campsites in 2022

1. Sekr

Sekr, also known as the vanlife app, is one of the most popular tools for finding campsites in 2022. The app does more than find places to sleep; it also provides information on local events, pit stops, wifi, cell coverage, and even laundry. Users can then rate and review stops directly on the app to help others traveling through the area. 

2. iOverlander

iOverlander allows users to filter campsite options by location, amenities, and accommodation types. The app is completely free and one of the most popular choices on the market for those looking to go off-grid and explore beyond the pavement. Users can find everything from quick pull-offs to epic 4wd routes and adventures. 

3. Overnight RV Parking

With over 16,000 listings just for RVs, this app to find campsites is perfect for those traveling long distances in rigs that aren’t always meant for dirt roads. Like many other apps, each location has reviews and descriptions to decide if it’s the right stop long before you pull off the road. The company verifies each listing on the app to ensure direction, GPS coordinates, and all other details are correct. 

4. Harvest Hosts

If you’re a road tripper always searching for the next cold brew or glass of wine, this app is for you! Harvest Hosts is an RV camping tool that specifically focuses on breweries, wineries, farms, and other unique attractions that welcome campers. The best part? Most of it is free! With a $99 annual membership, RVers get unlimited overnight stays at hosts. The company simply asks you to buy a local product to support the host in exchange for the stay. 

5. Campendium

Categorized by RV parks, free camping, national parks, state parks, and national forests, Campendium has solutions for every road tripper. There is a free and PRO version of the app, with the PRO offering ad-free options for browsing and map overlays. The website also provides helpful guides, including everything from the best LGBTQ campgrounds to the best places to camp near golf courses. 

6. Allstays Camp & RV

Allstays Camp & RV is a free resources tool that’s more than just campsites. Truck drivers can find rest stops, truck stops, and parking lots, while road-trippers needing a little break can also search for hotels. Each resource is categorized by state, ensuring ease for those looking for convenient spots without the hassle of searching.

7. Hipcamp

Specializing in unique camping and stays, HipCamp is a great tool for those looking for locations that aren’t your typical run-of-the-mill campgrounds. They offer everything from campsites on private property to unique stays at yoga retreats, organic farms, and more. No matter what you find, you will not be disappointed! 

8. KOA

KOA is one of the most popular and well-known nationwide campgrounds in the United States. Yet, most don’t realize they also have an app to help find campsites in KOAs around the country! With over 500 locations nationwide, the tool allows users to search, filter, and reserve campsites all in one place, making camping easier than ever before. 

9. The Dyrt

The Dyrt offers both a free and PRO version that allows users to find campsites and plan entire trips directly through the app. Investing in the PRO option also provides additional discounts on campgrounds booked through the app, which can end up paying for itself over time! Users can search campgrounds in a variety of ways, including by town or by using your current location. 

10. FreeRoam

FreeRoam was built specifically for explorers interested in Boondocking and free camping. This means most accommodations offer fewer amenities than typical campgrounds. But what lacks in amenities is often made up in incredible views, secluded paradises, and galaxy views. Listings include photos from previous campers and reviews on road conditions, the number of campsites, and more. 

11. Recreation.gov

Recreation.gov is known as a tool to apply for permits and look up resources for national parks, but it’s also fantastic for finding campgrounds in national forests and other government-owned protected areas. Fun fact: it also allows options for travelers to book forest service cabins, fire lookouts, and other unique stays! 

12. Camp-California

Unlike others on this list, this choice is state-specific, but that’s because California needed its own camping tool app. The website offers a free campground guide for California, which is the most difficult state to find free campsites. But despite its name, the tool has expanded to include Nevada, Oregon, and Washington, all of which are some of the most popular areas for RVers and campers. 

No matter where you’re going or how you plan to get there, these twelve apps to find campsites are guaranteed to reduce stress and increase adventure on every leg of the journey. Happy travels, we can’t wait to see you on the road!
