We are almost there with our weather overlay.  Expected to be released in the next few weeks, you will soon be able to see a 7 day weather forecast for each campsite.  Also, rainfall predictions, wind warnings so you know when to bring in the awning, tide times for the keen fishers, and even a sunset & sunrise function so you will know when to capture those magic moments. 

The Weather Overlay will be available in the Premium section of the App only, and we are so excited that we are halving our Annual Premium Club Membership for a short time.
