The Recreation.gov Camping app wants to put its users in touch with available campsites at National Parks, forests, and other Federal recreation facilities.
The app provides users with instant availability information for campsites, cabins, day-use, and other camping sites. The app also allows users to explore dates for future reservations.
The app’s database provides relevant details about campsites as well as photos of each campsite, making it a viable tool to explore previously unknown campsites as well.
For RVers, the app allows users to search for RV friendly sites, equipment length restrictions, and sites that allow a hook-up.
Additionally, the app also provides:
- Map and list views of campground search results
- The ability to create a list of “favorite” campgrounds for further ease
- Driving directions to campgrounds
- Summaries of available campsites
- Option to reserve campgrounds online or by phone
Users are able to search for sites the following criteria:
- Campgrounds near current location
- Near another city of address
- Name of campground, park, or facility
- Activities and amenities the user would like
- Arrival date and length of stay
This app is really useful for anyone with the itch to camp who doesn’t really know where to start, or is looking for a specific amenity at a campsite. As the app is informative and easy to use, let this app guide those new to camping or looking for someplace new to camp!
