-This app or the "Camp & RV" app?
Although Camp and RV has a "tent" filter for this same data, you may not ever need RV stuff. This app shows only places that take tents. Even boat and hike-in ones. Camp & RV has more than 4 times the points of this app because it has both tent camps and stuff tenters may not need. The other app has RV only parks, truck stops, rest stops, RV dealers, low clearances, parking lots and much more.
-CAMP & TENT HAS 2 MODES:
-Map view: uses GPS and maps to plot up to 150 points at a time. Starting from your current location, you can zoom out and in or jump to anywhere in the USA and Canada. This mode shows everything. Filter the map to view only what you want: KOA, Forests, BLM, or maybe REI stores.
-City lookup: View text info by state and city. Only looking for State Parks? Find them without internet service!
-WHAT'S IN IT:
-Over 26,000 Tent Campgrounds: (US & Canada)
-National & State Forests
-Army Corps of Engineers
-Even primitive hike-in/boat-in/rough road spots that other apps exclude. Every point has coordinates, address or directions and phone. 98% have amenities and official website links.
-Expanded detail view lists all amenities. RV amenities are included because it gives you a idea of what to expect. When tent camping, you may want to find the smaller more primitive places with less RV focus. This is a good indicator. Amenities include open season, rate range, sites, water, showers, toilets/restrooms, tables, pool, playground, laundry, pet-friendly, firewood, boat launch, seasonal sites and internet access.
- PLUS Outdoor Supply Stores:
-Bass Pro Shops
-Big 5 Sporting Goods
Send in your own additions, reports and app corrections from each detail view.
-HOW CAN THIS APP SAVE YOU MONEY TOO?
-When you find a tent camp in a park behind a store.
-Find a nice forest site just 2 miles beyond the $40 spot your book lists.
-Lighten your load and not buy as many books year after year.
-NO WIFI? NO SERVICE?
Parts of this app will always work and provide useful information. The data is stored on your phone while the app uses GPS, so constantly calling upon a website for information like other camping apps do is not necessary. This is great for improving speed when you’re in remote places.
** This app is a full time project built for campers by a camper. From http://www.allstays.com, providing camping data for over 18 years. There will be mistakes but they will be fixed on next update. This independent app does not feature or hide any place based on fees or corporate ties. Information is provided. You make the decision.
Don’t take the tent out one more time without Camp & Tent. Or if you use a camper, look for our Camp & RV app. The ultimate outdoor travel app.
** Cell service is required for full GPS functionality. Internet required for maps first view and loading into memory.**

Ratings and Reviews
Exactly what I wanted.
I took my family on a last minute camping/road trip when our vacation to the east coast was cancelled due to Hurricane Irma. With only a day to plan, I downloaded this app and just started driving, planning only a day or two in advance. This app helped out A TON and helped us find some free sites, thus helping our already low budget. The filters are great. The app was reliable. Used it for a week and found 4 really good spots.
The only thing I wish it had was a "toilet" option under the filters. I was traveling with my wife and daughter and toilets was a big necessity for them. A lot of the free sites didn't even include a toilet so that was a touch frustrating as we had to filter through more sites than I wanted to on the app to find a campsite with toilets. Over all, I will definitely use this app for my next camping trip.
Camping User interface
Not impressed. Typical camping website user interfaces are awful. All one wants is to know what sites are available on any f—ing weekend. Instead you have to search for specific campsite on a specific weekend. Of course, every site is booked unless it more than 6 months out. (The web page default settings are “this weekend” or “next weekend” - give me a break!! No one can impulse camp in California given the demand for camp sites.) I thought this app would help - No Way!! To make reservations it just routes you to the web address and you’re on your own again. Very, very disappointed and frustrated. :(
Invaluable on long distance camping trips!
This app has been a blessing on the cross country motorcycle trips I’ve taken. I ride all day on back roads and open this app in the late afternoon to find nearest campgrounds. I camp every night to keep expenses down and have rarely come up short with this app. Must have travel tool for me.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
