So many things I use are online or on my phone/tablet...so I'll break this down into 3 parts:

1) My favorite "online - web based" roadtrip/camping planning tool:

RV Trip Wizard is an Online tool I used for planning my trip to/from Hohenwald...it's great. - https://www.rvtripwizard.com/ 

2) Apps my Phone/Tablet Tools for Finding and Reserving Campsites:

Allstays Camp & RV - also a good lookup tool for campgrounds - https://www.allstays.com/
Campendium - For reviews of campgrounds  - https://www.campendium.com/
The Ultimate US Campground App -  For locating boondocking sites.=   http://www.ultimatecampgrounds.com/
All Trails - for finding localized hiking info - https://www.alltrails.com/
Recreation.Gov - for doing many of the reservations in Nat'l forests, and parks - https://www.recreation.gov/
Harvest Hosts App - for one night stays at wineries, farms, etc. - https://harvesthosts.com/
RV LIfe - All round app I use as a portal into reviews and new campground info. - http://rvlife.com/

3) Seeing the actual campground sites:

I've found so far that I use several apps when planning a long trip.  Some are great for finding "camping" others are good for planning the drive.

In addition, there are resources we use that help us plan by showing actual campsites as photo's or drive through's including these three sites:

Campsite Photo's - https://www.campsitephotos.com/  
Campground Views  https://www.campgroundviews.com/ - featuring drive throughs of a campground in 360 deg format so you can look around.
The Dyrt - a great site for what's good about a specific campground:  https://thedyrt.com/

Hope that helps...

Second Campendium. Use that quite a bit. Reserve America is used as the booking system for many state parks. We normally just use the web site but they also have an app. It is called RA camping.

I use Campendium and Ultimate Campgrounds the  most - I kind of play them against each other.  As for the neg OR positive reviews - I have found them about 50% useful - just depends  on what the reason for the rating.  Needs to be really specific - and timely for me to really give it any consideration. Sometimes they are just ridiculous comments..

Used Harvest Hosts this last year - it provides another alternative.

I've found most camping reviews are either great, or in the dump. Same campground.  

Either super happy, or ax to grind. If I click on the reviewer, and read their reviews, I  often find a stream of the same.

My needs are not the same as someone traveling in a sunblocker motorhome or giant fifth wheel, so I  take some comnents with a grain of salt. Where I worry are multiple  reports of lots of cranky permanent residents, old trailers, poorly maintained  facilities,  etc.
