We Camp Here Extends Search Capabilities to Canada

Do you camp in Canada?  If so, then you are in luck!  The We Camp Here Campground Search engine has been updated to include Canadian campgrounds, and version 2.2 of the We Camp Here camping apps have been released for Android and iPhone as well.  We have been working hard on this update for a while and we are really excited about providing the same great campground search capabilities to our friends north of the border as our United States users have been enjoying for some time now.  In addition to adding Canadian campgrounds to our database, we have also refined your search options by breaking the public category into several sub-categories.  Now finding the perfect campground is easier than ever!

If you aren’t familiar with our camping apps, then wonder no more!  Here are all of the things you can do with We Camp Here Campground Search camping apps:

Easy to use We Camp Here for Android uses Google Maps to display campgrounds.  Simply navigate around the map and click on the markers to view detailed campground information, read and write reviews, call for reservations, view the campground website or even get turn by turn driving directions via Google Navigation.

Start Where You Want To Use the ‘Start with Current Location’ preference to either load campgrounds near your current location, or you can choose to load the map the way it was the last time you used it.

Works in portrait or landscape orientation We want to keep you safe!  You can put your phone in the dock and keep your hands free for driving.

Zoom and Pan Use the zoom buttons or pinch to zoom.  Pan left, right, up or down with the flick of a finger.  The map will automatically update as you do!

Zoom To Click the magnifying glass button and enter a city, state or zip code in the dialog box.   The map will automatically center and zoom in on that area!

We Don’t Lock You In Move around the map freely.  No need to refresh the map or do a new search if you want to move around.  The map will update automatically!

We Only Give You What You Need We Camp Here only has listings for campgrounds, so you won’t have to sort through day use parks and gas stations when you are looking for a place to spend the night.

No Waiting for Data Updates We Camp Here for Android uses the same data as our website, so you will have access to new campground listings and user reviews on wecamphere.com the moment they are posted.

Advanced Search Criteria Looking for a Privately Owned campground that has Cable TV and Internet Access?  How about one that has 50 Amp service, pull thrus and is pet friendly?  Maybe you need one that allows tent camping?  Pop open the Advanced Search Criteria and you can limit the results to the campgrounds that match exactly what you are looking for!  If you find yourself always using the same criteria, you can also choose to save it by selecting the ‘Save Advanced Criteria’ option in the application preferences.

What you need is at your fingertips Click on a campground marker to view the campground name and everything you need to get you to your destination is a button click away.

Campground Info View detailed information about the campground in an easy to read tabular format.  Find out the distance from your current location, the number and types of sites, as well as the utilities, amenities and recreation available at the campground.

Satellite TV Setup No need to buy another app to get the satellite TV look angle for your dish.  We supply the Elevation, Azimuth and Skew for each campground, including setups for multi-LNB dishes.

User Reviews The We Camp Here app gives you access to the same great user reviews that you can read online.  Let the experiences of others help you find the perfect campground or help you steer clear of the bad ones!

Tell everyone ‘We Camp Here’ When you finish your stay at a campground, you can add your own reviews (free registration required).  Rate the Cleanliness, Value and Amenities of the campground and tell your fellow campers why you will be back or why they should stay away.

Call for Reservations Once you have made your decision, simply click the call button to fire up the dialer and make your reservations.

View the Campground Website Get the inside scoop straight from the campground website!

We Can Get You There Too Click the Directions button to fire up Google Navigation and get turn by turn directions to the campground.
