It can help you find campgrounds on public land or in established campgrounds. This knowledge is used by millions of RVers.
“It will significantly advance our mission to provide RVers and road trippers with end-to-end trip discovery and planning tools — including finding accommodations — that allow them to fully enjoy their journey. We look forward to applying our experience, scale, and tools to help Campendium further develop its product, enhance the user experience, and grow the platform’s reach,” Hest added.
