Ultimate US Campgrounds app just got a lot better


Recommended Posts

I have been using this app as my primary research tool and it works very well. I never cared for the default maps (Apple Road and Apple Satellite, and Open Streetmap) but they did the job. The latest update adds Google Maps (Road, Terrain and Satellite). What excites me is the Terrain maps, which are wonderful if you live where the ground is not dead flat. The terrain maps look like topo maps without all the numbers or small details. They are super easy to read and interpret.... here is Round Lake State Park in N Idaho

 

Here is the Apple road map view. Hmmm, it looks pretty flat.

And the Apple Satellite view. Lots of solid green, what is that?

And the wonderful Google Terrain view. Where did those mounatins come from?

I highly recommend this app. Click a campground symbol and a brief desription window opens. Click the “I” button for full info, including links to website, images, etc etc. you can apply filters to look for places with certain recreational features, or only those above say 6000 feet, or those with hookups. The data is very much dependent on user submissions so if you find a mistake, email their support crew with a detailed description and they will make the change for the very next data update, which happens often.

This is my main app for campground planning. Since we mainly do national/state parks, COE, military and BLM camping this app is the one to use. Plus, I’ve emailed the developer with suggestions, corrections and questions and they are quick to respond. I second John’s recommendation. Mike

Here is a camprground submission page, or you can access a similar link using the app. It is easy and satisfying to submit corrections. Like when the access road to a nearby lake campground landslid into the water a couple of years ago, I told them that the place was shut down indefinitely and they updated the info within a few weeks. When the road finally reopens, I will let them know again....
