Is there a comprehensive app that shows all or the vast majority of campgrounds? We were coming through the sawtooth range up near Stanley, ID and some of the campgrounds were on google maps and some were not, even though they were all official campgrounds that were government managed (USFS, ID State, etc.)

I did download dyrt, reserve america, recreation.gov.

For years I have found the app, Allstays Camp & RV to be my best tool for finding campgrounds. RV Parky is a newer one that also gets good reviews.

Have done many Cracker Barrels in many states, and have stayed overnight in several. Have always enjoyed their food, and the prices are not out of line. However, the one in Jackson, Tennessee which is close to us, has suffered some during the crunch times. Visited there for lunch several days ago, and the food quality was definately DOWN. We will watch and see, hopefully it was just a bad day.

Nice story. Relevance?

Allstays and campendium are pretty complete. Freecampsites.net is also a good resource for free or cheap typically dry camping on public lands.

The RVParky app shows all campgrounds. Private, state and Federal.
Great App.

James, if you are in known USFS areas check out the MUV Maps. I'm finding as time is going on I'm enjoying using Ioverlander.com more and more. Of course all these apps Freecampsites.net, Campendium etc etc are only as useful as to how many of us keep updating them on our findings, so over time our order of play on public type apps tends to change. USFS MUV maps after getting a bit of practice with them can be really useful, and google satellite zoom in shows us pretty well what is doable access and what might not be.

That's what we find helps us most.

Go to the Sawtooth national forest page on the net and you will see the campgrounds for that forest.

Because there are so many, and because they do come and go, it is difficult to have every single one with any accuracy at all. As a result, I've found it very helpful to have several such apps. The one I usually start with, only because it seems to have the largest number listed, is Allstays. I also use RV Parky, and Rec.gov. I recommend all three.
