Hi there happy campers!
Hands up who has a smartphone? Well, you're in luck... now you can put 14,000 U.S. campgrounds and RV parks in your pocket!
While you've been hitting the road in your RV or car and enjoying long Summer weekends camping, we've been slaving away on Camp Finder our brand new app for your iPhone and Droid. With just one touch you can search for campgrounds and RV Parks, as well as check out rates, amenities, camping discounts, contact details and even photos and reviews posted by other users. It's also smart enough to give you directions to your campground destination... the only thing it won't do is drive your motor home or car there!
We think it's pretty cool not to have to carry round big thick camping and RVing directories, and it seems other folks do to. That's why we are over the moon that Camp Finder has just been selected as one of five "best summer apps" by Smartmoney.com! Check out the buzz...
Angel Bus transports patients in the comfort of their RVs
On December 2009, Paul and Carol Kendzor lost their dear friend Sandra "Chuch" Flynn to cancer. Sometime before that, Chuch said she would have loved traveling to her hospital appointments in the comfort of an RV, and the Kendzors decided to take her the next time she went. But Chuch died before she could have her RV ride, and so the Kendzor couple sought a way to honor her memory by starting up an organization of RV owners who will transport financially-challenged patients to their appointments for free.
