Needs more users to report Boondocking spots
The app has potential for being pretty good. But it’s not an app where the developers go and find spots for the app. It’s an user based app, meaning people have to report of a camping spot, either it be a campground (Not really what the app is designed for), free camping areas (getting a little closer to intent of app), but more importantly boondocking areas. It’s a scattering of users free camping/boondocking spots, just doesn’t have a lot of them. If you find a spot on this app and you camp there based on someone else’s work finding it and posting it, pay it forward and post a spot of your own on the app for others to be able to use to. That’s the only way it can get better. I can find numerous campground apps all day long. In the middle of nowhere free camping spot apps.... not so much.
As opposed to the 6,000+ FREE campsites on other apps- this is by far the most pathetic data base. While only a handful of locations come up in Arizona alone, you can’t help but laugh. There are far better apps clearly developed by more passionate individuals who undoubtedly have a greater appreciation for the outdoors than this app attempts to portray. Accessing a more accurate database would a lone be a phenomenal service to this app- displaying just some of the lack behind this app.
Very clear and informative
I have downloaded every app that I could find on camping, boondocking, RVing etc. and this little gem is one of the easiest to use and provides awesome information. Obviously made by someone who understands both boondocking AND programming. Thanks so much to the creator(s) of “Boondocking”!
