People also ask "Is there an app for finding campsites"?

yes, just go to the websites I have mentioned above and look for their app.

2 Free apps I can recommend wholeheartedly, because I have used them extensively.

The first,, an offline downloadable app that works using satellite gps and maps you have previously downloaded through wifi. Since it doesn't require you to be online, you can access almost all the info in real time as you would on a live map ( saved me when I was lost in the woods once, but that's a story for another day)

The second app is Opensignal. When I camp I prefer to have wifi, I find it helpful to at least peek into the world beyond my campsite. This app has helped me find the strength, coverage area and direction of signal for the nearest tower of my phone carrier. I love it, every time I show up at a new campsite and can tell where in the area has the strongest signal.

In Conclusion

I hope you could find some useful links, that will help you find your next "greatest camping spot ever", location.
