    Awesome service!!

    I've used Campnab twice and was able to secure great campsites in my desired location both times. Both were for very busy weekends and I wouldn't have been able to snag a campsite otherwise. Love this service so much!

    👍 Pros:    Easy to use|Quick and easy|Efficient

    Worked really well

    I recommend this app to anyone that likes camping and will definitely use it in the future. I was interested in camping in Canyonlands National Park, UT, but it was solid booked at least 6 months in advance. Though a bit skeptical at the beginning, I tried Campnab and now I have a reservation! The setup, login, setting up alarms in Campnab was very easy and straightforward. And a few weeks later I got a message about a cancellation. Good idea and very good app!

    👍 Pros:    Works perfectly|User friendly interface|Inexpensive

    Perfect!

    Camping in my area is.. impossible. Sites get booked the morning they become available. It's insane. I was feeling sad about not being able to enjoy the great outdoors. BUT thanks to Campnab I was able to go camping multiple times this season. Plus, customer support is great. Thanks Campnab!

    👍 Pros:    Easy to use|Simple yet powerful and efficient tool|Cheap price|Great customer support

    Great Job!!

    I heard about this site through a friend and decided to give it a try. The site met and exceeded my expectations. I received exactly what the the site said they would deliver!!! The site is very user friendly (I'm not tech savy) and I was able to book a camp site during each time period I specified. I have referred this site to my friends. I love that it is owned and managed by local residents in the Lower Mainland who are avid campers and understand what we want and need. Great job, all round!!!

    👍 Pros:    Easy to use|Affordable pricing option|Support team always ready|Local support

    Absolute Vacation Saver

    We took a cross country national park road trip this summer and we were in despair because all campgrounds were booked at Glacier, Grand Teton, and Rainier. Stumbled across Campnab and within short order we had camp sites at all three parks, including the very hard to get Many Glacier campground! Highly recommend Campnab, its an absolute vacation saver!

    The only way ive found to get a reservation

    Found this site two summers ago and it is a gem. I have used it for two summers now to get campsites that would be impossible to get otherwise. Worth every penny. Make sure you are prepared when they text you a site because people are fast at booking. If that website needs a login, make one first so that you can speed through checkout. I think to date, I have only missed one out of like 10-12 camp trips due to not getting a camp spot. Customer service is amazing to if you have questions.

    👍 Pros:    Cost effective|Easy to use|Great customer support

    Great App!

    In January we planned on a March camping trip to Big Bend National Park. Every campsite was booked. But with Campnab I ended up with multiple choices for camping on our selected dates both in the National Park and in the nearby Big Bend State Park. Campnab made this happen. Great app!

    What a great service

    With post covid rush to get camp sites, everything across the province is booked solid. Campnab allows you to let a program do the hunting for you. At 7am you get an alert, hop on the park site QUICKLY, book it and you're camping. AMAZING.. Works like a charm every time I use it.

    👍 Pros:    Easy to use|Great customer support|Great value for the money|Great user experience|Fast conversion speed

    excellent way to complete your itinerary!

    We were late to finalize our camping itinerary and had missed the sign up window for sites in several popular national parks. We signed up for Campnab and in the space of a few weeks our itinerary was filled for the nights and locations we wanted! The process of signing up was very easy and the interface with phone notifications made it so we never missed an opportunity to grab a campsite. I will definitely use Campnab again when planning my next trip.

    Awesome service to book hard-to-find campsites

    Campnab is a really useful tool for finding availability at some of the most popular camping destinations in the US. The user interface to create new scans is both simple and powerful. Text notifications are a great way to quickly respond to new availability.

    👍 Pros:    User-friendly|Simple to setup

Questions & Answers

As answered by people managing Campnab.
  1. What makes Campnab unique?

    Campnab scans sold-out state, provincial, national, and some county parks for cancelled campsite reservations and permits. When it spots an opening that matches your requirements, it sends a text message to you about the new availability.

  2. Why should a person choose Campnab over its competitors?

    We monitor parks throughout the US and Canada—and can check for backcountry availabilities in a number of these parks. Using Campnab is super-easy as we’ve put so much effort into making the interface clean and intuitive. Plus, it has all kinds of useful features (for example: the ability to scan only for specific campsites). Meanwhile, if you ever run into an issue, one of us will help resolve it one-on-one. Members tend to be pleased that a real human is ready to lend a hand when needed.

  3. How would you describe your primary audience?

    A lot of seasonal campers use Campnab throughout the spring, summer, and early fall. That said, we also do see a number of full-time RVers sign up for annual plans, as they need to be able to find campsite reservations year-round. We also find that some fair-weather campers use our pay-per-use scans once or twice a year.

  4. What's the story behind Campnab?

    Eric and Kim bought a campervan, but couldn’t find a place to camp as every park was sold-out. This led Kim to spend hours hitting Refresh on the parks’ booking site in hopes of finding an availability. Eric figured he could automate the process to save Kim some time—and realized that others might also like this sort of service. So, he and his friend (also named Eric) released the product publicly. Since then, Campnab has become our full-time job, as we work to keep the system running well, add new features, and introduce scanning for additional regions.

  • Advise on summer national park road trip
    There's this amazing website called Campnab that lets you, for individual extra fees (ranging from like $5 to $25 or so) let's you get email or text updates when sites from certain campgrounds become available. That site saved me a couple summers ago and let me camp in the best spots in Yellowstone, glacier, and Teton. Highly recommend using. Source: 12 months ago
  • Camping for those who work for a living?
    Some people I know use CampNab and have had success with it. It's a paid service that notifies you via text when there's a cancellation at a park you're interested in. Source: about 1 year ago
  • Camping ⛺️
    Https://campnab.com/ is your friend. I use it all the time. Source: about 1 year ago
  • Tell me about your planning process to book the best campsites- specifically National/state parks with hookups
    I am lazy and too cheap to plan too much in advance. I use services like campnab.com to alert me about available sites on a number of reservation systems. They are connected to reservation systems throughout Canada and the US. Also, there are other similar services. I'm not affiliated with campnab. I've picked up many a spot this way. Source: about 1 year ago
  • So what was everyone's experience with the new Park Reservation system this morning?
    There is a good website called Campnab that alerts you when there is a opening. It was $20 but it helped us get a site for September long weekend at Riding Mountain when everything was booked up. Source: about 1 year ago
  • Camping issue, suggestions?
    Check out https://campnab.com/. It's an inexpensive bot that will scan for camp site openings and text you when it finds one. I have been planning a trip for a long time but fat fingered one of my original reservations. I realized it about a month ago, and by then there were no campsites available. Within a few days of signing up for campnab I was able to score a campsite. Good luck! Source: about 2 years ago
  • Camping Spots
    There is also https://campnab.com/ but it requires $10 service fee. I personally haven't used it but have been recommended it. Source: over 2 years ago
  • Seattle subreddit for selling camping spots you suddenly can't use?
    You can also try campnab.com which is a reselling site as far as I can tell. Source: about 3 years ago
  • Who here scored backcountry permits? If so, where to?
    BTW: We recently added scanning for backcountry permits on Campnab. We don’t scan for all of them (because that’d be hard and will take time). That said, we can scan for a fair number of them. 🤙. Source: about 3 years ago
  • I built a web scraper to notify you of cancellations at fully booked campsites in Yellowstone National Park
    To help us get an advantage in finding a site we signed up for Campnab, a service that lets you sign up for text notifications when booked out campgrounds receive cancellations. Long story short, it's totally worth it I have nothing but great things to say about it. We found a 5 day cancellation and booked our first choice campground within a couple weeks of signing up for text alerts. Source: about 3 years ago
  • Camping spots
    Camp nab will text you the moment a campsite opens up. There is a monthly fee for this. Source: about 3 years ago
  • The provincial park camping reservation system is much better this year!
    You can always subscribe to a paid service that will notify when a campsite becomes available - https://campnab.com/. Source: about 3 years ago
