Steps to Creating Your Best Campsite
- Help Animals As You Explore!
While visiting different recreational spots, you'll meet new animals who could use a little help. They'll be looking for fish, fruit, bugs, and other things to get their camping adventures startedâand when you help them out, you'll earn Bells and craft materials in return!
- Craft Furniture and Amenities
The craft materials you earn by fulfilling animalsâ requests can be used to craft all sorts of furniture and amenities for your campsite.
Just open up the Craft menu and place an order with Cyrus, the hardworking handyman from Re-Tail on the Road. Then sit back and wait! Or, if you're in a hurry, you can move your order to the very front of the line by using Leaf Tickets. You can purchase Leaf Tickets with real money, or earn them through regular gameplay.

The joy of the Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp game is creating a space that suits you and your style.
Your campsite can be anything you likeâfrom a traditional space that celebrates nature to a flashy fun house with concerts and rides. It's all up to you!
You can also customize your camper, visit your friends' campsites to get ideas for your own, and meet new animal friends as you explore recreational areas!
- Host Animals at Your Campsite
As you grow your friendships with different animals, they'll want to visit your campsite. Craft and decorate with their favorite items, and youâll be able to host them whenever you likeâeven if you change up your decorations completely!

I made a review when this first came put so here's my updated thoughts. A wonderful time consumer, I find it hard to put down. It really lives up to the legacy of the other Animal Crossing titles. The only thing I would change is adding more characters to the game. Other than that, this is a perfect example of what Nintendo can do to improve the mobile gaming industry. Well done. Full Review

really cute?? i adore playing this and am for some reason willing to spend forever cleaning out my phone to just update this. im incredibly excited for future updates and can't wait to see if my otyer fave villagers get added, making sure i have them in my camp is going to become an addiction i can tell. can be a little hassling to use, menus resetting every click through but that really is my only complaint!

This is my first time ever leaving a review for an app but i just had to since i couldnt contain my excitment and love for this game. I pretty much have all versions (ds, wii) of animal crossing, and today just got better with now the app!! In the short period of playing, im so impressed by how easy it is to control and move my character. I love the gameplay where you can collect things by doing request and the graphics are also amazing (cough especially on the galaxy s8;)) overall i am so please so far! Thank you for making my dream come tree with this glorrrryyyy! Full Review

I love animal crossing since it came out on DS. and I love this one as it looks the exact same. however, I don't like the fact that u can't freely travel between each camp, there's no Nooks that gets bigger with a hair dressers nd all that stuff. I miss the old stuff from the old game. it would be cool to have the old stuff and the new stuff together to make it one big animal crossing! Full Review

Was super happy with this game... Until the latest update. Now it keeps telling me to move to an area with a better connection and I can't get past the title screen. Funny, it was working fine just this morning before the update! I've had zero issues playing it in my home and now suddenly I can't play it at all. Very displeased. Full Review

There isn't a whole lot to do right now. You get to fish, pick fruit and decorate your house. And you can talk to your neighbors (npcs only) It just lacks in certain areas. I wish you could explore the map, or move to different locations, plant trees, donate to the museum or otherwise display your catches, catch different animals depending on the time of day and year, visit the city, etc. Full Review

ðThis is my 3rd time ranking this app. All I can say it's beautiful. The updates keep improving the over all gameplay. There is plenty of content. The controls, and graphics are perfect. My only issue is the quarry. It's a pain trying to get 5 people to help you in a limited amount of time. Keep up the good work Nintendo!ð Full Review

Coming from playing Animal Crossing on DS since it came out, I love having Pocket Camp on my phone to kill time anytime. The game is very well made and there's always some sort of goal to work towards. I think it's silly but I like it. I've tried convincing all my friends to play to no avail, but I will continue playing so long as it never requires me to make micro transactions just to enjoy the game. Full Review

I've been playing animal ever since it came out on game cube. The hidden treasures, quirks, animals, and visuals have always left me in state of awh and perpetual nostalgia. Minor bugs pop up in it, but they are quick to fix. With the app many of my friends have begun to just taste the cult following that is animal crossing. 10/10 would recommend for everyone of all age groups. Full Review

I'm a big animal crossing fan. I still play on my 3DS but I downloaded this as soon as it came out for the US and have played almost every day since. I love having it in my pocket, sometimes I don't have time to grab my DS and play. The graphics are awesome, the animals are cute, the quests keep you busy. There's always something to do. I love that they don't make it impossible to save up leaf tickets. This makes it possible to have fun playing without buying extra. I'd recommend this game to anyone! My 4 year old son sometimes plays and picks fruit/catches fish. Full Review

I love this game. Sure in the beginning the game tells you about it's micro transactions. But after the tutorial it doesn't shove them in your face. I'm lvl 40 and haven't spent a dime. I play in the morning, lunch breaks at work, and before going to bed and in three weeks was able to craft all the holiday furniture and k.k.'s chair and invited 75% of the animals to my campsite.

I've had this game for about a week now and I'm loving it! The gameplay is simple and fun, the characters are adorable, the furniture and items look amazing, and the music is relaxed and happy. The whole game just has that friendly, Animal Crossing feel to it. The one thing I don't like is how you have to place certain pieces of furniture to get different animals. I would rather just have to craft the furniture than place it, since I end up putting it away right after a new animal moves in. The gameplay isn't super exciting either, so I'm nervous I may get tired of this game and delete it. But it's nice to sometimes just play a game that doesn't make you work too hard. Full Review

I love the Animal Crossing games but sometimes they can be too time consuming and a serious commitment if you want to play the game well. However, this phone version is very casual and easy to play! You can play as much or as little as you want without your campsite falling into ruin because you haven't logged on in two days. I love that it has all the heart of the other Animal Crossing games but made sampler for the phone. It's a great game! Full Review
Karen Jimenez Published date: December 17, 2017
I wasn't really looking into this game very much at first because I thought progress would be too difficult without making payments. After playing it for some time now I can definitely say that progress is time consuming but addicting and fun. I love this game so much! It has a different feel from ACNL, which was expected, but I definitely love the constant need for interaction with the animals. The music and environments are adorable as well. Full Review
Natasha Emms Published date: December 17, 2017
I have gotten sick of developers pushing microtransactions on us and basically creating games where you get to play to level 10 and then have to pay to do anything after that. This game destroys that. I haven't put a single penny in yet I've had hours of fun with this app. There are still microtransactions in the form of leaf tickets but they are not necessary and they aren't super expensive, so if you have the money to spend it's still worth it which means Nintendo is still getting a profit!! And the best thing: NO ADS!!!!!!!! This game is adorable, good vibes all around and lots of fun. It has made me want to buy the main series of Animal Crossing. I hope developers of money traps like Clash of Clans take notes. Full Review

I really want to like his but it just crashes ALL THE TIME. It's even worse after the gardening update. It would crash non-stop after about two minutes. I've tried reinstalling, but now I'm stuck in the loop I had before when it first launched where I can't link my Nintendo account due to null errors. Nintendo really needs to fix their server issues before trying to roll out more content. I can't even try to play anymore and it sucks. Full Review
Gwyndolyn Harrold Published date: December 17, 2017
A great addition to a beloved series of games. I love the cute look, premise, and customizing my camp site! The only thing I'd like are additions to the shops, especially the Nook furniture shop! I'd like to add that I have not once paid for Leaf Tickets. I have never had to use real money whilst playing. Full Review
Kacie Good Published date: December 17, 2017
I've always loved Animal Crossing games! So glad to have one on my phone. It's been great. Except, my loan amount keeps going back up. I had 25,000 left. Paid 10,000 and was left with 15,000. Next time I went to pay, it was at 25,000 again. Paid another 10,000. Just went to pay it again and it's at 20,000 instead of the 15,000 it's supposed to be. Full Review
Laura Abels Published date: December 17, 2017
Its cute but it's got nothing on the actual DS game. The design is gorgeous but the characters don't develop which was my favourite thing about the DS game, there's no way to 'collect' or track if you've caught all the available species of bugs/fish and no incentive really to do so. The game play gets repetitive as well but nonetheless a cute time waster Full Review
Hannah Shepherd Published date: December 17, 2017
Wish I could give it more stars because I've been playing this every day for a while now, but today when I tried to play, it wouldn't let me play until I updated. So I did, especially because I was so excited for the garden section, but the second it finished updating, it stopped connecting. It won't let me go past the loading screen at all before it says there's no connection. Super disappointing. Full Review
Laura Avery Published date: December 17, 2017
Lots of Animal Crossing is here, but befriending Animals gets grindy and microtransactions pervade everything you do in the game, with arbitrary costs and timescales that skyrocket the more you play. Animals also seem to come from limited personality pools so they all feel very much the same sometimes. Full Review
hyejung93 Published date: December 17, 2017
I love this game but the recent update is a bit wonky on the data download. It was like this too the first time I downloaded this app. It keeps prompting me to move to an area with better connection even though my connection is okay. then I let the app run in background while downloading the data and voila... it works. but it's not downloading again if I let the app open instead of running in the background. please fix this. Full Review
Monique L Published date: December 17, 2017
I love this game! I've played in on the cube, the DS, the Wii, and the 3ds but now I can play it on my phone which I have everywhere I go. It's the same great animal crossing. Fun characters and I love the idea of helping out the animals and leveling up with them and the game. I'm obsessed!! Full Review
Sailor Moon SAILOR STARS FANGIRL!!!!! Published date: December 17, 2017
I love animal crossing.... So of course I love this game. Although I was left kind of grumpy without an animal crossing game for the switch... This game fulfilled my needs! Edit: I am experiencing a glitch after the garden & friend levels update where sometimes when I clicked in them while they were sitting on the lovely couch and/or lovely chair, their arms would stay in sitting position. When they'd grab something from their pocket... They'd rumble and their arms would kind if glitch around then the item floats over to the player... Mostly it happens with Apollo and Rosie. It happened with Kidcat once, though. I hope you fix it soon! Full Review
Nhi Nguyen Published date: December 17, 2017
Glad to have an animal crossing game where I don't have to lug around my handheld console or when I'm on the go. Best thing that ever graced the market. However, it's very grindy for those just entering the animal crossing franchise. If you can get over that factor, it's a great game. Full Review
Joanna Dunne Published date: December 17, 2017
I've grown up with animal crossing, and it's so wonderful to be able to play it on my phone! It isn't quite like the full original games of course, but in the wait for a new full Animal Crossing game, it certainly fills the gap! Pleasantly surprised by this app, theres more to do in that than I first expected, and the graphics are wonderful. I LOVE IT!!! Full Review
kath mj Published date: December 17, 2017
I think it will be more COOL if you add chat. So we can chitchat with other players. The graphics was perfect and everything. But it will be more perfect if we can communicate with other players. Because if we do the same thing all over again.. it's kinda boring though Full Review
Tina Furtney Published date: December 17, 2017
When you do the updates you cant play for a day afterwards. Frustrating and during game updates, you lose ALL previous game experience even if you have a nintendo acct. So you must start fresh. Lame. Not even worth playing if thats gonna happen everytime. Full Review
liz akins Published date: December 17, 2017
I flippin love this game soe flaes. N some things id like to change. Id want it to b like the game for ds. N would love a bigger campsite... on level 20 or 21 had the game since 11/25 been playing it non stop. Aaaaaa++++ Full Review
Mayve Carpenter Published date: December 17, 2017
The game can be a bit tedious at times, and sometimes the waits are pretty long but its realistic and worth it for the most part! I'm a big fan of the animal crossing series, and I enjoy this app version a lot. The game is cute and happy and a good time killer! Full Review
Jaemin Jung Published date: December 17, 2017
This new update is really cool. I like the fact you can get items in return for harvesting flowers. Also! I'd like to point out the fact that the game tells you who wants to talk to you. Great idea! Thank you for that. This game just keeps getting better. Can't wait for future updates. Full Review
Ava Yuill Published date: December 17, 2017
Amazing addictive game. I play this game to pass time but the only things I would change is having more bugs and fish, not just the three common ones and some rares. I was also hoping there would be some sort of clothing you can craft. Apart from that it's an amazing game. Full Review
Jennifer Wilson Published date: December 17, 2017
Other than the connection error I sometimes get while connecting to my Nintendo account, I don't get the old errors I used to. I wish that the lands were connected instead of having one area for bugs, one area for river fish and so on. And having timed goals takes the relaxation out of Animal Crossing. Full Review
Kitty Hocking Published date: December 17, 2017
There needs to be notifications about when fruit is done and when someone requests help for the quarry. And possibly fix it when it reset to the top of the friends list after looking at someone's profile. I love this game though. It's really repetitive, but that's just what animal crossing is lol Full Review
Angela Berardinelli Published date: December 17, 2017
It's a cute, mobile game that gets at the essence of past Animal Crossing games. There are just so many errors. Sometimes I can't connect at all past the title screen, sometimes I'm booted in the middle of the game. And usually once there's a problem, it's persistent for a long time (can't just quit and immediately restart). Full Review
Anthony Lee Published date: December 17, 2017
App is broken after updating today. It keeps giving the same error; telling me to move closer for a better signal or try again later. This makes the game unplayable. It was good while it lasted. Reinstall, force stop, wifi cycle, nothing works. Full Review
Shae Gibbs Published date: December 17, 2017
This is such a brilliant spin-off to the Animal Crossing series! The addition of goals and social sharing gives it so much more long-term appeal. PLEASE ADD: a way to sort inventory items for OCD people like me. Some way to group fruit/fish/etc together in the list for easier viewing. Full Review
Norman Chan Published date: December 17, 2017
Nostalgic little game. Don't need to buy leaf tickets, plenty of other ways of getting them. Can get a bit repetitive but the lure for more clothes and furniture for your camp keeps you coming back. Full Review
Cristina Port Published date: December 17, 2017
So cool to be playing an old childhood game! I love the challenges and making new friends. It's so exciting. On my note 8 though, I've had troubles with controls if I want to use the stylus but other than that it's a great game!! Full Review
John Salerno Published date: December 17, 2017
Fun, but very repetitive. Needs a better system for friend notifications and getting rid of the notification dot. Also needs to retain our position in the friends list rather than returning all the way to the top each time we go back. Full Review
