Here are a handful of reasons why we consider Campnab special—and how these benefits makes a difference for campers like you.
Campnab allows you to scan a lot of different parks
There are many campgrounds out there, and we can scan for availabilities at many of them (currently 3,200 parks, 7,000 campgrounds, and hundreds of permits). We have over 300,000 campsites in our directory from parks in Canada as well as the United States, and we’re working to add more.
Campnab lets you scan for backcountry permit availabilities
If you prefer to get into the backcountry, Campnab can help you scan for permit cancelations at parks in the United States and Canada. In the U.S., we can scan for more than 650 permits and tickets (tours, passes, permits, day use, backcountry, etc.) at parks booked through Recreation.gov. In Canada, we can scan for backcountry cancelations at several provincial and national parks.
Campnab’s filters help you refine your results
If you have vehicle or amenity requirements, our filtering capabilities can come in handy. Although these vary from one park to the next, you can typically filter by campsite type, vehicle length, ADA—and sometimes electrical hookups. You can also use our filtering to specify the exact campsites you’re interested in.
Campnab is ridiculously easy to use
We’ve put a lot of effort into making Campnab work the way it should. As a result, members often tell us that it just “felt good to use”. Upon visiting our homepage, our system will step you through creating a scan, opening an account, and choosing a plan/tier in just a few moments.
Campnab is run by real humans
We’re Eric S. and Eric K., and we’ve been friends since Eric K. had a mullet. We built this product for our own needs, and are thrilled to be offering it to campers like you. So, if you have a problem or question, we’re here for you. Click on the chat icon (center-right of screen) to start a discussion, or email us, or call us at our design studio: 604-683-2250. We’ll work with you one-on-one to get you what you need. Please note that there can be a delay if we’re out on our bikes, or spending time with our respective families.
Campnab is our obsession
Creating a campsite availability app isn’t all that hard. In fact, a number of hobbyists have tried their hand at doing so. That said, it soon gets tricky. Campsite booking systems often change or have strange glitches. Adding new jurisdictions takes time and introduces new challenges. Sometimes weird things happen on the booking systems and need to be investigated. At Campnab we’re continually improving the system, addressing issues, and monitoring uptime (sometimes when everyone else is fast asleep) to ensure we’re offering good value. This might be why our members are so fanatical about our service.
