- How do I locate a site

There are three ways to locate a site –

  • Use the search feature, which is located at the top of the main Map If you know the name of a site, simply type the name where prompted. Tap on the site name to view the site information. If you don’t know the name of the site, type in the name of the city/town and search through the results listed for sites in that city/town via the drop down list. Alternatively, tap the name of the city/town at the bottom of the list then use the map to navigate sites in the selected area.
  • Using the Map, pinch to zoom into the area you want to search and tap the site icons to view the site information.
  • Use the List view to view a list of sites related to your search or if no search terms are entered, a list of sites based on your filter options. Tap on the site name to view the site information.

To close the site tap the X in the top left corner.

- How do I use filters?

Tap on the green Filters button next to the search field in the top right of the screen to access filter options.

The Key search categories are;

Near me: Used to filter sites within certain ranges, ie 20km/50km/100km etc, from your current location.

Site Type: Used to filter different categories of site, ie Overnight Camps, Caravan Parks, Dump Points etc.

Suitable for: Used to filter vehicle suitability, ie Campervan, Camper Trailer, Big Rig etc.

Accommodation & Sites: Used to filter site features like powered sites, ensuite sites, Drive through sites etc

Facilities & Amenities: used to filter sites by non-essential facilities, ie Toilets, Showers, Drinking Water, Powered Sites, Picnic Tables, Fireplaces, BBQ’s, Swimming Pools etc.

To filter by site category tap on the type(s) of site(s) you want to display, the selected option will then display a green tick to the right of the list to show it has been selected, tap the green Apply Filters button at the bottom of the screen to apply any selected filters. All sites that match the selected categories will have their site icon displayed on the map page.

For example, to see only Free and Donation sites – scroll down to the Site Type category, select the Overnight Site Free/Donation option from the list, then tap the Apply Filters button at the bottom of the page. You will now see only free/donation overnight sites on the map. Use the same process if you only want to see caravan parks or day use only sites. You can apply multiple filters at the same time.

You can further refine your search by filtering by your required facilities, price, connectivity etc. To turn on a facilities filter, tap the relevant symbol and the filter will display a green tick to the right of the selected option. For example, if you only want to see sites with toilets, tap the Toilet box to select then tap the Apply Filters button. Now, only sites with toilets will appear. You can have more than one filter applied at the same time. Simply select all the facilities you would like to have included in your search before hitting the Apply Filters button.

To clear all filters select Clear at the top right of the filter menu.

Tap the X in the top right corner to close the filter menu.

You may have filters selected that are hiding sites. See the “How do I use the filters?” section to learn how to turn these off and on.

- What does ‘fees from’ on the site information page indicate?

The fee shown is current in our database and is based on the low season cost for a powered site for 2 adults. Extra charges may apply for additional persons. There may be a lower fee available for unpowered sites or Self Contained Vehicles.

NOTE: You will need to have a strong WiFi connection/signal to successfully download these maps & data. It is recommended that users with limited free memory available on their devices only download the states they intend to travel to in the immediate future.

- How can I see my current location on the Map?

You can zoom to your current location (shown by the blue location dot) by tapping on the blue arrow in the bottom right hand corner of the map.

If the blue dot is not showing, you have not allowed Location Services access to Camps Australia on your device. To allow Location Services to track your location, please close the Camps Australia App then follow the instructions below;

Once selected, you will be given several options to choose your preferred method of navigation including; Apple/Google Maps, Safari/Chrome browser.

Note: Use of directional navigation requires access to either Cellular of Wi-Fi Data as well as permissions for Location Services. To enable Location Services please refer to the “How can I see my current location on the Map?” FAQ’s.

- Can I enter GPS coordinates into the Camps Australia Wide App to find a campsite?

The Camps App is not a GPS. Only a GPS App or GPS navigation system has that function.

All the sites in the Camps App that the user selects in the Camps App use either Google Maps GPS (while they have cellular service) to direct them with turn by turn instructions to the sites.

Once ‘cellular‘ service is lost the Google/Apple Maps will no longer operate and you should switch to Offline Mode to be able to navigate via map.

Please note that all of our Camps Australia Wide data and POI’s are available for purchase on most makes and models of in-car navigation systems. Please contact our partners at GPSOZ on 02 9999 2313 to check compatibility with your in-car system and make a purchase of this data.

- When using the Camps Australia Wide App is there a way of finding a camp by using THE SITE NUMBER instead of a town/place name?

The numbers quoted in the printed guides are not used by the App for navigation. The books site numbers are related to each state and also for the Camps budget sites as well as the Caravan Parks sites, it would be very confusing to have 7 site no 1’s in the app. Also many book owners will keep older editions as their “bible” for several years and the use of site numbers would cause confusion for all users.

Instead you can search sites recommended by Camps or Caravan Parks guides owners, by the name of the site listed, or go the map in the App and check out the locality. Alternatively, buy the book as well – they work really well together. Here’s a post on that: What benefit is there to owning the books, when you already have our App?

Common Account and Registration Processes Issues/Errors FAQ’s

- I am trying to sign in but the Camps App says the account is invalid?

This most likely means the email address you are using to access the app has not been registered with us yet. But there are a few other situations to consider first.

You may have previously registered under another email address and need to ensure you are trying to access the Camps App from the correct account. If you are not sure if you have an account registered, please contact support@campsaustraliawide.com and we can check to see if you have previously registered an account with us.

You have previously registered an account with us using a specific email address but you are now trying to log into the account using the Apple/Google/Facebook connect feature. Although the underlying email address may be the same as your Apple/Google/Facebook account, these are treated as separate accounts by our system as the password credentials are set with those accounts.

The opposite situation can also apply, you may have registered an account using Apple/Google/Facebook, then try to log in using the same email address but not via the Apple/Google/Facebook connect feature. Please always use the same method for singing into the Camps app or account portal to reduce the risk of duplicating your account.

Lastly, you may also have never registered an account with us at all and need to choose the “Start a 7 day Trial” option instead, this will register an account with us and give you access to the Camps App without any charges for 7 days so you can test out the Camps App before subscribing.

- I have forgotten my password but when I choose “forgot password” at the login screen nothing happens?

There can be several reasons for this issue arising;

First, you have not actually registered an account with us as yet. Please refer to the I am trying to sign in but the Camps App says the account is invalid? FAQ to ensure you have a valid account held with Camps Australia Wide.

Next, the email link for your password reset has been blocked by your email servers Junk/Trash filter. Please check your Junk/Trash folder in your email to see if it has been blocked by the server.

Please Note: The password reset link is a timed link and will expire after 15 minutes from request. You can request a new link be sent to your email from within the link if it has expired.

- I have purchased a Camps 11 book and downloaded the app but the app won’t let me in?

Purchasing the Camps 11 guide books does not automatically activate the free years access. Some users may not want to use the Camps app straight away or may already have an existing subscription with Apple/Google. Automatically activating the account could cause conflicts between these accounts and incur charges the user was not aware of. For this reason all Camps 11 users must opt in to activate their free years subscription via the account portal. Please refer to How do I activate my free years subscription from my Camps 11 book purchase? for a detailed explanation of this process.

- I am trying to sign up for a trial/subscription renewal but it won’t accept my password in the pop up?

This is most likely your device requesting your Apple/Google ID Password to access your account to activate the subscription with the app store. This password request is not coming from us but rather from the app store. Enter your account password to log into your Apple/Google account and confirm the subscription.

- I am sure I have an active subscription but the app is prompting me to Start a Trial/Resubscribe?

There can be several reason for this issue;

Your subscription may have lapsed or be associated with an alternate email address. Please check your subscription status before proceeding;

Apple User – How do I check my subscription status on Apple?

Android User – How do I check my subscription status on Android?

If you have confirmed that your account has an active subscription, please tap the “Restore Purchases” button in the bottom right corner of the Camps app to repair the connection to your account.

If your subscription has lapsed please choose to resubscribe within the Camps App login process to start a new subscription.

If no subscription is displayed on this list then your Apple/Google account does not have an active subscription associated with it and you will need to start a trial to access the Camps App.

Please note: Android users can have multiple accounts on one device, you need to make sure you are logged into the correct account on your device for the subscription to display on the list, refer to I have purchased the Camps Australia Wide App on my Android but it isn’t showing in my subscriptions list? FAQ for more information on this issue.

If you are still experiencing issues after this please contact support@campsaustraliwide.com or call 0407 230 021 during business hours for technical support.

- I have confirmed my subscription is active with Apple/Google but it will not restore purchases/ I have confirmed I do not have an active subscription but it will not allow me to sign up for a trial/renewal?

These issues can be caused by not having a valid payment method registered with Apple/Google for your store account. The Camps app cannot register the subscription with the app store as the account is locked off by Apple/Google if no valid payment method is available. This can mean you have never registered a payment with them previously or you have been issued a new bank card recently and the expiration dates no longer match. You need to update your account info with Apple/Google to unlock the account and allow Camps Australia to synchronise the subscription with the app store. Refer to the links below for assistance with this process.

https://support.apple.com/en-au/HT201266

https://support.google.com/googleplay/answer/4646404?co=GENIE.Platform%3DDesktop&hl=en

- Why do I have to log in everytime I use the Camp app?

This can be caused by two issues;

You are actually logging out of the Camps App after each use, which then requires you to log back in on the next use of the app. Only log out of the Camps app completely from the in app menus if you are planning to log into a different account, otherwise just use your device’s native controls to close the app. Refer to the links below if you do not know how to do this.

https://support.google.com/android/answer/9079646?hl=en

https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201330

 Alternatively, if your valid payment method set with the app store has lapsed since you installed the Camps App, the device will “forget” the subscription each time you use it as Apple/Google have locked your accounts subscriptions until you update your payment method with them. Refer to the links below on how to fix this issue.

Camps Books

- What is the difference between Camps A4 and Easy to Read B4?

The text and maps inside the books are identical. However, the Easy to Read B4 book is approximately 25% bigger and weighs approximately 700g more. This means the maps are larger too and easier to read, and also includes photographs of the majority of sites. This gives you a visual perception of the location and helps you compare sites and choose where to stay!

- How often is CAMPS produced?

Each edition is published every two years. CAMPS 11 was distributed from February 2021. Caravan Parks 5 came out December 2018.

You can buy directly from our website, or over the phone (07 5474 2542). If you like we can add your email address to our fortnightly newsletters, where announcements will be made closer to the release.

- How can I keep my camps book updated?

Changes are bound to occur, especially over time after the book’s release. There are three ways you can access updates for your book.

  1. The Camps Australia Wide App. This app works well in conjunction with your books. You can easily compare symbols to see if a site has removed or added facilities and features.
  2. Our newsletter, Blog and Socials. Every fortnight we share new listings and site reviews in our free email newsletter. Simply send us an email or visit our website homepage to sign up (www.campsaustraliawide.com). All of these articles are published in our blog. You can also see camp closures and new sites on our Facebook and Instagram pages, and you can join our Facebook group called ‘I Love Camping Australia Wide’.
  3. Website update service. This is a free and user-friendly service for the current edition and also for the previous edition of Camps. Updates are available from the first published date for 4 years.

To access the updates go to our website and the updates page: https://www.campsaustraliawide.com/update-service/or click updates from the home page.

Then select ‘launch updates program’, this will open a blank page with headings. Here select the edition of the book you have (updates are available for the current edition book and the previous book) and the state you want to update, then a date range or leave blank if you are updating for the first time, this will then give you all the current updates. Then hit ‘search’. The updates then are loaded into the page. 

From here you can then print them or print as a PDF.

We usually recommend to people that they record the date they last printed the updates then next time they can put this date into the ‘from’ box in the search and just get the updates from that date instead of everything again.

Follow in the instructions from the “Important: Updating This Book” page in the introduction pages of your book.

NOTE: Names of sites may change over time. As the updates are automated, we no longer use abbreviations. If the Print button is obscured, simply use the scroll bar to reveal it.

- How can I access updates for my Camps 9 book?

The updates stay current for a CAMPS book for a period of 4 years from release date (and 2 years for the Caravan Parks book). CAMPS 9 was released in February 2017, that was now 4 years ago.

Please don’t worry, you can still check updates for those sites via CAMPS 11 (or 10) – as sites are also listed by site name and names do not change much. Best of all, the App is the most convenient way to search for changes, and will always be the most up to date version. Instead of seeing the main changes to a site on the website – the App will show you all changes, plus a load of new symbols that have only been introduced into CAMPS 11.

In addition, our free email newsletter regularly includes site information – please send us your email address and name, and we’ll add you to the list. Our socials on Facebook, Instagram, and the Facebook Group also help keep you up to date.

- Why aren’t there many caravan parks in CAMPS book?

The ethos behind the Camps book is “Freedom and Low Cost Camping”, so only sites that are less than $25 per night are in the book.

Some caravan parks can fall within that price band and are therefore in the book but a lot can be more expensive, so they are not in the Camps book, they are in our Caravan Park Book.

The Caravan Park book, lists all caravan parks regardless of price. See it here.

If you like to stay in both freedom camps and caravan parks – we recommend you purchase one of our Travel Packs:

https://shop.campsaustraliawide.com/collections/travel-packs

There are however, some remote parks and stations that we do list with a $+ symbol in the Camps book. This is either because there is no other choice in that location or the facility is unique.

- What is the difference between the Caravan Parks Book and the Camps Book?

The Camps book is aimed at “Freedom and Low Cost Camping”, this includes rest areas that allow overnight parking, National and State parks, showground camping, hotel and pub camping, the only caravan parks listed in it are low cost council parks and smaller remote town parks that were under $25.00 per night for a powered site when we went to print.

The Caravan Parks book lists only caravan parks no matter what the cost.

- Why do the site numbers change with each edition?

As a new book is only released every 2 years there are always changes to listings during that time and we also add new sites and delete closed and unsuitable sites. As the format of the numbers follows along a highway route, when we come to printing the next edition the numbers all have to be realigned to accommodate these changes.

- I am unfamiliar with the symbols in the book.

Please read the Legend page in the introductory pages of each book. There is also a full and correct list of symbols at the very back of the book and inside cover in CAMPS, for easy reference.

- What are GPS coordinates?

GPS stands for Global Positioning System. Using signals provided from satellites users are able to determine reliable positioning & navigation.

There are 3 common GPS coordinate display formats:

– Latitude and Longitude (-17.598889 145.758611) DDD

– Lat / Long -minutes-seconds (17 35 56S    145 45 31E ) – We use this one. DMS

Lat/ Long -minutes-decimal seconds (17 35.933 145 45.517) DMM

The Camps Australia Wide & Caravan Parks Australia Wide books use Lat./ Long –minutes-seconds, or DMS  ( dd mm ss )    Generally you will find that most GPS units have the above three settings, so if you want to input our GPS coordinates for a site into your GPS you must have the right setting selected. Entering our coordinates into another setting will result in incorrect directions and you will not access the correct site.

Camps Australia Wide site Point of Interest  (POI) files have been created for some of the popular GPS brands, these files only match the Camps 8 sites and when loaded into your GPS will allow quick select for your GPS to direct you to your selected site. See our shopping cart for information on POI’s.  As always take care when following directions from your GPS as they tend to want to take short cuts, so use common sense when following the directions given.

- Why do the site numbers change with each edition?

As a new book is only released every 2 years there are always changes to listings during that time and we also add new sites and delete closed and unsuitable sites. As the format of the numbers follows a highway, when we come to printing the next edition the numbers all have to be realigned.

- What is the difference between the Camps book and the Caravan Parks book?

The Camps book is aimed at free, low cost camping, plus rest areas that allow overnight parking, national and state parks, showground camping, hotel and pub camping ,  the only caravan parks listed in it are  low cost council parks and smaller remote town parks that were under $25.00 per night for a powered site when we went to print.

The Caravan Parks book lists only caravan parks no matter what the cost.

- Why aren’t coastal and city caravan parks listed in the Camps book?

These premium locations tend to charge much more than $25.00 p/n for a powered site so they are over the cost parameters for being listed in the Camps book.

There are however, some remote parks and Stations that we do list with a $+ symbol in the camps book. This is either because there is no other choice in that location or the facility is unique.

- Are your books suitable for people in tents, 4WDs and camper trailers?

Definitely! The only camps that aren’t listed in the book and App are walk-in campsites – where you cannot camp beside your vehicle. Most sites in the book are suitable for every type of camping.

Our list of sites suitable only for 4WD, roof top tents, camper trailers and regular tents are growing every week. Please note if you see listed Self Contained Vehicle Only – it currently only includes vehicles that are fully self-contained with respect to shower, toilet, washing, cooking, sleeping facilities which must have holding tanks for toilet waste and sullage water sufficient for at least 48 hours’ use by the occupants. These sites generally have symbols only for motorhomes and/or caravans.

- I have CAMPS 8 do I need to buy CAMPS 11?

Camps 8 was published 8 years ago – so a lot has changed. We added another 950 sites between CAMPS 9 and 10 alone. More added each edition, and well as updates, changes – dump points etc.

A big difference with CAMPS 11 are the new symbols so you can tell the difference between a farmstay or national park, a paid site or showground, a pub vs an RV park – as well as a whole lot of new symbols like playground, natural swimming options, 4WD only, pet seasonal, fishing, games rooms, gas, generators…

As well as new symbols in the site listings – a huge difference for CAMPS 11 compared to 8 is you can see easily on our maps which sites are pet friendly or not.

Our customers tell us they get the money back in just 2 or 3 nights on the road. Also you can receive our fortnightly newsletter for free, and book purchasers receive a FREE 12 month app subscription.

- Are the books hardcover or soft cover?

We currently have soft-covers for both Camps 11 and Caravan Parks 5 books. They are of good quality, durable and are spiral bound to ensure they last you on your travels.

Caravan Parks Books

- I have arrived at a caravan park and it is no longer Pet Friendly, but it is listed as pet friendly in the book.

Under the legend page in each book, please read the information under the Pets symbol:

“It is highly recommended that you contact the park prior to deciding to use the park, as some parks limit the animal size and only permit animals in off-peak periods. Management reserves the right to amend the park’s policy at no notice (and often do!) so to avoid any disappointment make a phone call.”

Every entry is verified for each edition. Caravan Park owners are not always aware it is us calling, and we use their websites to check accuracy also.

Thank you for letting us know, so we can change the listing. Although the books are published every two years – we do change our app and highlight important changes to sites on our website (and pet friendly symbol is something that we do alert people to changes) – see updating this book, in the early pages of your book.

Please ask to receive our newsletter list if you are not receiving them already, it is another way we let people know about new sites.

We do our utmost to keep CAMPS accurate – which is why it is so popular.

- How often do you release a new edition of Caravan Parks Australia Wide?

Each edition is published every two years. Caravan Parks 5 came out December 2018. CAMPS 11 was distributed from February 2021.

You can buy directly from our website, or over the phone. If you like we can add your email address to our fortnightly newsletters, where announcements will be made closer to the release of new editions.

Are you trying to ship to an Overseas address? If so then this will not work as we do not ship overseas as the cost of postage to you would be much higher than the cost of the book. Please refer to our website for overseas retailers that stock and ship the book.

The GPS POI file is available online through our website, click on campsaustraliawide.com and then on the image of the book with GPS POI through it.

This will open up another page which will give details of the product, to purchase click on BUY NOW From GPS OZ.

This will then take you automatically to the GPSOZ website and the POI Page.

There select the GPS type you have and then it will itemise the models that the POI upload is available for. Click on the one you want to purchase and the type of computer you have (Mac or PC) and then follow the purchase process.

GPSOZ will then send the file via email to the customer, it is very important that you read the instructions first before they attempt to upload the file as it is password protected. For a small fee, GPSOZ provide extra support for this.

- I have upgraded from Camps 10 to Camps 11 can I get a POI File?

You will need to purchase the new file as campsite numbers change between editions. Follow the steps above on how to purchase a camps POI file.

- Can we add Camps 10 or older versions of CAMPS books put in to our new Sat Nav?

Unfortunately, once an edition is out of print, the corresponding POI is no longer stocked. The only POI available now is CAMPS 11 (it also includes CARAVAN PARKS 5 and updates every 6 months). Note that Camps 11 has 950 new sites.

Here are the POIs that are available for your sat nav from our website:

https://shop.campsaustraliawide.com/pages/gps-poi

- The GPS Co-ordinates are wrong they keep taking me 20-30KM past the site.

Your GPS may be set to the wrong setting if it is doing this for every site, please refer to About this Guide page in the introduction pages of your book for the GPS Information.

Basically, there are 3 common GPS coordinate display formats. The Camps Australia Wide & Caravan Parks Australia Wide books use Lat./ Long –minutes-seconds, or DMS  ( ddd mm ss ).

Generally, you will find that most GPS units have different settings to choose from, so if you want to input our GPS coordinates for a site into your GPS you must have the right setting selected. Entering our coordinates into another setting will result in incorrect directions and you will not access the correct site. You will need to access the menu of your GPS to find and select (ddd mm ss) which is the correct setting.

Alternatively, instead of manually inputting the GPS coordinates each time you could purchase the GPS POI file.

- How do I give you feedback and updates about sites?

You can use:-

The online feedback form that is under “Updates” on the website

Or email info@campsaustraliawide.com.

Or call us on 07 5474 2542

Or via the Camps Australia Wide App at the bottom of the campsite page that says ‘Improve this listing’

Our publication relies on consumer feedback to maintain accuracy and development. Any information, no matter how small, can be sent to us and is most appreciated.
