    Its a free app but you need to be a member of Wild Camping forum and pay your subs.. I think they are £20 per year.. best to check

    Description

    Membership to Wild Camping is required but a free demo is available to test out the app and see a sample of POIsClick the link for instructions on how to use this app and download a sample POI file:

    Thanks ScotJimland.
    Here I know that I spend the best £10 of my life, not sure if I will be able to afford it next year LOL (retiring). Wonder if the £20 of Wild Camping will be so well spent? Any opinions please.
    Dose it cover UK only?

    Just to let you know ... don't waste your time trying to find the WC app 'for free' (ie without joining the WC forum) as it doesn't exist anywhere else!

    If you are an avid wild camper a qualified yes..

    I say that as I am of the opinion that good wild spots shouldn't be shared.. Selfish ? yes.. you bet.. but make them well known and either a) they get overrun or b) someone complains and the council or landowner is forced to take action.. all land is owned by someone..

    The very best wild spots are the ones you discover yourself.. and keep to yourself..

    as a forum.. you can join without paying subs and make up your own mind.. but you will get bombarded with spam asking you to pay the subs.

    That was my experience too, I registered and after a couple of weeks unregistered because of the spam. Self-defeating I fear.

    Must admit I get fed up of the 'subs spam' emails too but I just have them going directly into my junk folder! :)

    Freeloaders paying to find out where to freeload?

    I have off-site motorhomed for decades without any list!

    You soon build up your own data base.

    I belong to it and the forum is a bit like this one but a bit more anarchic, I spend time on both most nights at home( sad billy no mates)
    The POI (points of interest ) on your GPS is good as it gives a warning of upcoming tried parking sites You get parking points, water uplift points and that is really useful when in a strange part of the UK or France. The complaints about popups is because you are paying by having those adverts etc If you are a full member then they go away and the site is clear. There are plenty of other parts on the forum Like this one with technical help and advice etc.., I belong to both forum but would not belong to the CCC etc.

    Thanks.
    Registered to WC but still can't find the activating code for the App. Do you get it only if paying the full membership?

    Hi Jim. I am not active on their forum.
    Maybe you can put together a list of good wild camping sites by volunteering information from Generous Funsters.
