Park4Night is a mobile application that can help you find nice places to park your motorhome during your journey.
12,000 places to park your motorhome!
Looking for a nice place to stop in peace and quiet? The Park4Night mobile application has almost 12,000 places listed all over Europe.
This app is based on sharing between motorhome drivers. You exchange places where you like to relax, spend the night, have a picnic or for any other reason.
Everyone can contribute by adding photos, notes and comments. You can also tell the community about possible activities in the vicinity of your stopover.
The application also works in “offline” mode, so you can find a place to spend the night without an Internet connection, as the application saves the information for you.

An interesting article on Le Monde du Camping-Car about wild camping.
In our opinion, it’s a question of common sense (others would say feeling) when it comes to choosing a location.
Alternate between wild camping and campgrounds
We recommend alternating between camping in the wild and camping in a campground, even if it’s just to stop off once in a while for a really good shower, to empty the waste water or to meet new people.
