There are many resources available online for nomads. These are websites that we have found useful over the years.
Of course I have to mention the resources that are available here on this website. The Resources section has tons of links to events, apps, and more. The Campsite Reviews section contains high-quality reviews of campsites that I have actually visited and vetted. The blog contains a mix of behind the scenes stories, campsite reviews, informational articles, and more.
Phone and Data Plans
Mobile Internet Resource Center – This comprehensive site by Cherie Ve Ard and Chris Dunphy of Technomadia provides top-quality information on cell/data plans as well as devices from hotspots to boosters. This is my go-to site for accurate and reliable information on all things related to cell/data plans and related devices. Mobile Internet Resource Center is a membership site, but there is a lot of free content available. It is probably worth joining though if you are concerned with the most up-to-date and advanced information.
Campendium – This campsite review website features high-quality listings and good information. Campendium is now Robert’s favorite campsite directory resource (outside of our own directory, of course), and they also offer a free app.
iOverlander – A website database and apps for both iPhone and Android that focus on free, primitive camping. This is the newest resource that we have added to our campsite research arsenal.
Free Campsites – One of the best-known directories of free and inexpensive campsites. The quality of listings, as well as the amount of detail, varies because many are submitted by site users.
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers – This is not a friendly user website. We have found that the best place to get a concise list of their locations is through their link for volunteer applications (here). Reservations for these parks are made (here). HINT: It is easier to determine the name of the location first and then type the name on the reservations page to jump directly to that location.
RVillage – Many new or aspiring nomads are concerned about finding ways to meet other travelers. RVillage may be the perfect solution. Accessible via their website or apps (iOS and Android), RVillage is designed to help you “connect with other RVers wherever you are.”
Glacier Water – Online directory of Glacier Water dispensers that we use regularly.
