I Found a New Website and App for Free Campsites

iOverlander free campsites map

I’m always on the lookout for tools to help me find free campsites. Websites I currently consult before going on a trip include FreeCampsites.net, Campendium, and Hipcamp. I recently found a new one to add to the rotation, and it’s called iOverlander. (There are Android and iOS apps too.)

I live in Utah and have extensive camping experience in the state, so whenever I come across one of these new websites or apps, I immediately go to Utah and see if there are any camping areas I don’t already know about. It turns out that iOverlander had several. I then looked down into Arizona and southern California (other areas I’m pretty familiar with) and found still more campsites I wasn’t aware of. In my opinion, iOverlander is the second best of the above mentioned campsite websites after FreeCampsites.net. (I’ve found that the other two websites, Campendium and Hipcamp, have campsites that are usually covered on FreeCampsites.net.)

You can filter the camps by type of camping (I usually turn all of them off except for “wild camping” and “informal campsites”) and by amenities you’re looking for (being able to find a paid campground with a shower, for example, could mean that you won’t need to pay for a shower at a recreation center or truck stop).

Head on over to iOverlander and take a look at the camping areas near you or that you’re familiar with. Did you find any campsites you didn’t already know about?

Welcome to SUVRVing.com!

Hi. I’m Tristan. I spend a lot of time traveling in my 2011 Toyota RAV4. When I first became interested in the idea of sleeping in my SUV, I spent a lot of time searching online for good information, but it was hard to come by. My system has evolved over time and through trial and error.

Having spent dozens of nights now in my little SUV, I’ve got a system that works for me, and the purpose of this site and the SUV RVing book (coming soon!) is to share what I’ve learned with others. I hope you find the info here useful.

Stay tuned for lots of great stuff!
