5.0 out of 5 stars LOVE this app April 24, 2012
Verified Purchase
I am not a review writter for the most part but to write one for this app is a pleasure. If you camp or someday hope to camp you can't do better than this app. I am a camper so I use it quite often but even when I am not actively seeking a campground that suits me, I enjoy reading about all that is available, near home or far away. I recently traveled to Michigan and I enjoyed seeing what was available where I was. You can tell right away that the folks responsible for creating this app care about it and want to provide a top notch product. Bottom line, you have to have it!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great App! August 2, 2011
I love Camp Finder and I have used it frequently during the summer when I'm out with the family. The best part is that its extremely easy to use and always correct. I have tried other camping apps before this and I would usually find campgrounds in inaccurate locations. Camp Finder is always spot on and fast.

I love the fact that I can check campsites and RV parks by amenities which is very important to me. Overall its a great app and extremely useful.

This app is indispensable for my next trip. Happy Camping and Road Tripping!

3.0 out of 5 stars needs tweaked May 29, 2012
Verified Purchase
I have been waiting for a camping app to come out for my kindle so I purchased this as soon as I saw it. Unfortunately, it needs some more work to be truly useful. First, while they give you the telephone number and email address of the campground they don't give you a link to their website. Also, when I tried to check the location on the map I get a message that I need google maps to access that, which apparently is not going to work on my kindle. Had I known this I wouldn't have bought the app. It's a good beginning though and with some tweaking I can see this becoming very handy to have.

5.0 out of 5 stars No RVer should be without this app ... November 21, 2012
At 78, I finally joined the smartphone crowd mostly because of the apps available for RVers like me who like to roam the southern US during the winter.

For campgrounds, this is the best 'finder' I've found mostly because it's inclusive of all available campgrounds that I frequent. Previously, I needed different books for Good Sam, Passport America, National Parks, BLM, Forest Service and Corps of Engineers (among others). No more. This one has them all (at least the most popular).

It seems to take advantage of the Wiki principal where users can submit campgrounds for consideration ... which probably accounts for the variety. But since the Campfinder folks filter the results according to some criteria you're rarely disappointed upon arrival ... I hate surprises. The CG reviews also help in that regard.

Their tech support, if needed, is also the best I've seen. I submitted a stupid question that I answered for myself within an hour ... but the tech support people still responded ... very unusual in my experience. I had to apologize ... very gracious people (Thanks Amy).

5.0 out of 5 stars More Listings and More Convenient than Printed Directories September 16, 2012
Verified Purchase
This app consolidates the information contained on CampingRoadTrip.com's very useful Website, so that it will display properly on a smartphone screen. Then it adds the ability to use a phone's built-in GPS to quickly pinpoint nearby campgrounds. I can also search by city and state or by campground name. It's much more convenient than using a printed directory to find nearby campgrounds while on the road and it also lists far more campgrounds than any printed directory that I've used. Whenever I've reported errors, missing or out-of-business campsites, their responses have been prompt and appropriate.

Unlike some Web-based directories or printed ones such as Woodall's North American Campground Directory, 2012, there is no qualitative or ranking information provided by this app. Some of the campsites listed in this app have been reviewed and have photos, but most have not. The newest version of this app has links to the listed campground Websites, a more usable interface and still costs less than other similar apps.

For me, this app is well worth the price. It gives me fast results when my phone has a good data signal. However I believe that most campers, if they're not desperate for a place to spend the night, using this app may be the first step in choosing where to stop. Like me, you will probably want to have another resource handy to determine if the nearby campgrounds listed in this app will meet your expectations.

3.0 out of 5 stars Need maps July 17, 2012
Verified Purchase
I bought Camp Finder for my Kindle Fire to use on my RV trip from Illinois to Colorado. I was able to find camp sites in areas that I wanted to spend the night, but I couldn't get the directions to the sites because Camp Finder only uses Google Maps. Camp Finder didn't let me know that Google Maps are not available for Kindle Fire. I didn't find this out til I called them. They did give me the equal amount of money spent for app as a credit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent tool for campers June 16, 2013
Verified Purchase
I have several camp ground books which I find cumbersome to say the least. This app is easy and fun to use. Some phone numbers are erroneous but that is not a problem as most have two numbers.
