Beware Google Navigate Campers!

We recently had terrible results in finding RV campgrounds using Google Navigate on our Android phone. While clearly sepecifying the RV component, we were getting results that were tent only, and ownership arrangements only, complete with mail boxes. When you are at the end of a day of driving, you want a little more reliability than that.

Recommend keeping your AAA Campguide as still the most reliable source for a given locale. The latter is highly recommended. Don't bother with Google until they implement some major improvements.

Not surprisingly, Google Maps does exactly the same thing, except that it is a little clearer that many of the return are non-RV. If there are better alternatives, please let us know via the comment section.
