Ultimate Public Campground Project

By William Modesitt

Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.


The Ultimate US Public Campground Project app shows publicly-owned, non-commercial campgrounds across the entire United States, including Hawaii and Alaska. In this app you will find campgrounds ranging from full-service locations at state parks and Corps of Engineers parks to remote boondocking and back-packing locations with no facilities or services. It is based on data from the web-based Ultimate US Public Campground Project Included are US Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, National Park Service, Fish & Wildlife Service, Bureau of Reclamation, Corps of Engineers, Pacific Crest Trail, state parks and other state facilities, county and regional parks, municipal parks, utility company facilities, Indian reservations, military, Tennessee Valley Authority, non-profit (museums and conservation groups) and a handful of miscellaneous locations.

Current statistics:
Over 26,000 total campsites.
Over 4,000 of the campsites are FREE!
Over 6,000 of the campsites are $10 or under!

This app is intended for everyone regardless of their camping interests - it can be filtered by the facility owner, such as Forest Service or county. Users can also filter on camping preference, such as Tent, RV or Back-Country, or even if it has showers or not. Mark locations as your "favorite." Get driving directions to the campground.

An updated database for this app is available approximately every month so you have the most recent and up-to-date information available. For more info click the Support button or visit

Clicking on a campground location on the map shows available information about each location such as total number of camp sites, number of RV sites, number of electric hookups, whether there are showers and/or an RV dump station, fees, nearest town, phone number, elevation, web site and more. Of course the app can only show what information that can be discovered for each location.

Choose between Apple Maps, OpenStreet Maps and other maps.

Note that this app does NOT contain information on commercial campgrounds. Military campgrounds are included because they are government-owned, but in most cases their use is limited to active-duty and retired military personnel.

Send the location data to our Road Trip Planner app to help you plan your next camping trip!
Import routes from a GPX file.
Easily search the Internet for more info on each location as well as download public Flickr images that are geotagged as near the location.

In an effort to continually improve the accuracy of the data, users are encouraged to use the feedback function on the Ultimate Campgrounds web site or the email function within the app to submit corrections, additions and suggestions.

This app is functionally similar to the iPhone / iPad app with the same name.
