Ultimate Public Campground Project

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 Lower 48 United States. In this app you will find almost 22,000 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 www.ultimatecampgrounds.com. 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.
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.
A new version of this app is posted approximately every month with an updated database so you have the most recent and up-to-date information available. For more info click the Support button or visit http://goo.gl/HrrA7z
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.
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.

Super Helpful Camping Resource
I’m a couple of months away from a road trip I’ve been dreaming about for years. I’ve been converting a van into a camper and plan to travel the country with it. Ultimate Campgrounds is very helpful for my situation. I’d like to travel for a long time, and therefore have to be resourceful with my money, so I can’t be staying at hotels every night. This app is really helpful for finding cheap or free campgrounds all around the country. Locations are routinely updated and show valueable details such as whether a campground has running water, showers, toilets, etc. If you’re in a similar situation as I am, this app will help you out greatly.
