If you've not used it or haven't heard of it Link Removed

It also has an app for both Android and IOs .. there is an annual charge for the 'full' version of about £4.50 .. which I reckon is good value for money

IMO .. 'Probably' the best in terms of both number of stops and quality of information..

Reason for posting , I tried to upload a few camper stop places that I know in Scotland but they never appeared on the site, so I emailed to find out why.. this is the reply..

So good news , the old site was a bit clunky.. hope the app is also better

Hello James

it is true that the website will not be filled at this moment. We are working on a new website and are currently working to migrate all data. Next Friday it wil be ready and you can upload your data again.


Sorry for the inconvenience.


Met vriendelijke groet,

It's to be hoped they correct inaccurate information at the same time. Broken Link Removed.


as you are aware, sites depend on members unloading and informing when they encounter wrong data .. so I would guess, only if someone has made the effort and notified them..

I've checked nearly all the entries I'm familiar with and not found any major errors.. which gives me confidence to use them.. if I find any errors I will inform them.. and if everyone did the same, a better site.. (y)

Not long enough, but a little common sense helps..........
We have the app, we use it a lot having added their POI to GPS device and works a treat. We often update including pictures as and when we see a difference, but lately do not see our updates appearing. That explains a lot thanks. The book is very handy for quick look up whilst on the road near a location.

Yes, Jim, that's the problem - and why I changed my web site. It was possible to keep checking for so long but then there is so much information that it's never ending :) Years in ICT taught me that inaccurate information is worse than no information :)

indeed.. data is only as good as the people who supply and update it .. for admin it can be a thankless task..

anyways.. looking forward to trying the new site and adding locations.. having paid my subs I have a vested interest .. :LOL:

Is there an English version - I only know one Dutch word and it seems to upset people!

Ah, found it!

I can't find an App in iTunes Apps or App Store.
Anyone know where/how to buy the book, please?

I just had a look for places round here. It shows a car park in Saltburn as being OK for motorhomes. One of the photos with the entry shows a 2 tonne weight limit. I would advise caution in use of the entries.

I've just downloaded the Android version and it looks good. Quite a few camperstops in Northern Portugal for example, where we are heading next month.

Just updated the data file from my iPhone, no problems - suggesting the web site is operational. All seems OK. Have you tried again @chockswahay? Cheers. Terran

Got 'in' just now............ I have to say that the new site looks very nice, easier to use than before. I like the way that reviews are translated at last.

Looks like I'll have to get the 'app' for my new iPad hehe

Thanks @ScotJimland for pointing us in the right direction again (y)

as far as I know the phone app hasn't changed, but best wait till you are on a fast reliable wifi to update the app database
