Being on the road with a camper means freedom and independence. We'll show you great apps that will simplify your camping vacation. There are many apps that can help you in different situations: Camping apps for pitch search, navigation, finding gas stations or various outdoor activities. We have listed all the helpful apps for you and tell you what is important when choosing a camping app.

What's important when choosing a camping app?

When choosing a camping app, it is of course crucial for which purpose you want to use it. Do you need the app to find a pitch, for navigation, to find gas stations or outdoor activities?

Certain functions are also advantageous.

A GPS location and an offline function that allows you to download maps and use them without the Internet make it easier to find a parking space. In addition, the app should be cheap or free to use and have a filter, a radius search and rating options. In the following sections, we present the best camping apps for every situation.

The best 3 camping apps for the search for a pitch in Europe

Spontaneity is very important for camping vacations. Therefore, it is always important to have a good tool to spontaneously search for a good pitch. We show you great camping apps that make your camping vacation easier and many campers actually use.

In each of these camping apps, you search for pitches to stay overnight. The results are displayed on a map and in a list, so you can get a good overview of all pitches in Europe.

Promobil Pitch Radar

With this camping app you can find pitches near you. Even in the free version you are offered a lot: In addition to prices, addresses and distances to your location, you can see if there is an electricity connection, toilets, WLAN or water. In addition, there are real customer reviews that tell you something about the ground, atmosphere and dog-friendliness, for example. The app is available for free download for Android smartphones here and for iPhones here.

Womo-stellplatz.eu (Camping-App.eu)

Here you can find great places to stay in Europe. This camping app offers you more than 20,000 international pitches and campsites.

This camping app is probably the most popular app for free standing with a campervan. In contrast to the pitch guide, the pitch app park4night relies exclusively on the data that users have entered in the app. Currently, almost 130,000 pitches are entered. In the app, you can filter by specific pitches: normal parking, paid, free or private pitches, such as "On the farm" or "Off road 4×4".
