Whenever you’re ready to plan your next RV adventure, there’s a cool Facebook application out there that can help you find a spot to park your big rig: Campgrounds, developed by Big FamilyVacation LLC.
Here’s how it works: Click the interactive map to select the state you’d like to find an RV space in. Once you do that, the map zooms in to show you where the available spots are located.The groupings are sorted by zip codes and displayed as map-pins, making the layout very clean and easy to read.
Don Sumner of BigFamilyVacation LLC says that many RV enthusiasts use Facebook to keep in touch with friends and family, according to the press release. He said:
“We know that there are now many thousands of people who are enthusiastic RV travelers, who regularly use Facebook to keep in touch with friends and family, such as kids and grandkids, while on the road. We think this application will provide a great resource to help them plan where to stay at their next destination.”
The application pulls information from the website www.greatrvspaces.com,which currently has almost 1,400 listings. The website looks identical to the Facebook application.
Bonus: You don’t have to allow the app access to any of your personal information, and there’s nothing on your wall that mentions you viewed the app. Because of this, we could see using the Facebook application as opposed to the website.
What do you think about this application?
