Congrats on the Sandpiper!

Agreed - the Allstays App is just about the best thing out there. That coupled with RVPark reviews is as good as it gets.

RVTripwizard.com is a good resource as well, but it has a yearly subscription, so if you only camp within 3-500 miles of your home, it may be a bit too much.

Certainly check out the Allstays app first - it's $9.99 as I recall and it is updated often.

OH and look into Passport America - you can save a bundle with this discount RV Club (they also list big rig friendly parks) www.passportamerica.com

Good luck - this forum has people in places you are going that always want to help too!
X2 on RVPARKY. We did a 5 week trip last fall and used them totally in planning our stops. They even have Military Famcamps in the campground choices. A great resource.

I am a big fan of the Corps of Engineers Campgrounds. Bought a directory book on Amazon that helps me find them or you can search on Reservations.gov. Most will accommodate big rigs. If you are age 62 or over, you can purchase a senior access pass which gives you half price on the campsites. Most of them have water/electric sites until you get north of the Mason/Dixon line, then you have electric only. They all have neat, clean dump sites. The only problem is that, for the best sites, you have to make reservations well in advance. I am parked at a COE campground on the Mississippi River in Wisconsin right now. Beautiful view of the river. Love it!

We chose a 40' thinking we could get into any campground - wrong. A lot of the older campgrounds only go to 35' and many don't have 50 amp. Sad but true!

Or - you have to have made the reservation at least a year in advance! Ugh

Have you tried GS and Passport America apps. You don't have to be a member to download apps to phone. There is a web site that lists all Corp. Of Engineers parks they give the length of the sites
