AllStays Camp & RV
Not sure how it compares to RV Parky (which I'm just now installing based on this thread) but we've used it for several years and love it. Very comprehensive! Constantly updating. Works on iPhone/iPad (don't know about Androids). US and Canada.
Also lets you filter for things like low clearances, Sams, Costcos, Camping Worlds, Walmart "Ask to Camps", and extra stuff pertinent to RVers.

* Sabre 32 RCTS 5th Wheel
* Trailer Saver BD3 hitch

Apple Maps and Google Maps - either / or for directions.

Gas Buddy - to find gas at the best price.

Sani Dumps - for just what the app says.

Roadside - for Good Sam assistance.

DP AR Pro - Dish Pointer for satellite.

SkyView Free - to identify the things in the sky. (not needed but interesting)

I'll be taking a look at AllStays Camp & RV. Thanks to all for the tips. I'll be checking back to see what else gets mentioned.

I use rvovernight, iexit, sanidumps, wifi finder, all stays camp and rv, gas buddy, rv parks, rv parky, copilot, various pocket rangers, and ultimate campground which lists county, state parks, corp of engineers, wildlife areas, blm, and nfs campgrounds. I also have a couple of level apps, tunein radio and of course Forest River App.

Phone / Tablet Apps

We use the Allstays app for a lot of things from planning out what campgrounds to stay at to finding truck stops we can get into to looking for low bridges. We have probably used this app more than any other camping app over the past few years. On our phones, but use it more on our tablets.

We use a Compass app on the iPhone to see if we have a clear view to the satellite for the Direct-TV dish.

We use the Weather Channel and the Weather Bug apps to watch for storms coming our way so we can prepare our site and adjust our activities as appropriate. These weather apps have been some of the the most important apps recently since all of our camping since the first of the year has been in Texas.

MapQuest to find local attractions. And a multitude of other apps. Anytime we need to know something, "there is an app for that."

I used it every trip
Thanks! I should look at my phone a little closer
