Ultimate Public Campground Project

By William Modesitt

Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.


The Ultimate Public Campground Project app is dedicated to presenting information about publicly-owned, non-commercial campgrounds across the Lower 48 United States. In this app you will find 19,829 facilities, ranging from full-service campgrounds 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, state parks and other state facilities, county and regional parks, municipal parks, utility company facilities, Indian reservations, military, Tennessee Valley Authority, private (museums and conservation groups) and a handful of miscellaneous locations.

Every month we post a new version of this app with an updated database so you have the most recent and up-to-date information available.

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. Mark locations as your "favorite." Get driving directions to the campground.

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 and web site. Of course the app can only show what information that can be discovered for each location.
Send the location data to our Road Trip Planner app to help you plan your next camping trip!

While this app works best with Internet access, it is not required as the campground data is embedded within the app. Some supplemental services do require Internet access but this does not detract from the overall usefulness of the app.

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

Please review the Ultimate Campgrounds FAQ at as to limitations to our accuracy. Some of the obvious issues we face are fee changes, URL changes and closures.

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.
