App suggestions for NPS and State campgrounds

We're planning our trip to Colorado/Utah/Arizona for September and like to stay mostly in NPS or State campgrounds. I'm sure there is an app for iPhone or iPad that details the campgrounds in the various National Forests but I'm not having much luck finding one. Anybody have any suggestions?

We don't do apps so can't help there.

This is the site we used for national forest campgrounds for our 40' motorhome. They have personally visited every campground. They give good descriptions and directions.

Campground Directory and National Forest Campgrounds

This site has actual photos of individual campsites:


We use many types of references for finding campgrounds. No one has all of them.

We use rvparky.com They have an app as well. You can filter by type of campground you want to use and we have had a lot of luck with it.

Just enter the state and press search. Once at the state level select the map function tab and you should be set. You don't have to sign up to use.

Thanks for the replies. I found RV Parks in the iPhone app store, which shows all the forest service and other campgrounds at a local level, just what I'm looking for.
I had tried RV Parky, but found it drained my battery even when disabled. RV Park Reviews is a great site, but does not list all campgrounds.
Anyway, I'm think I'm set, thanks again!

A bit late to the discussion because we've been in National Forest campgrounds for the last week and a half (without cell service). I use the AllStays Camp and RV app almost exclusively to find campsite options in a specific area. Then I look at rvparkreviews.com to see if there is any information about the campground. Sometimes there is, sometimes not. If no information there, I look carefully at the descriptions of the campground on the forest or park website. I have found the campsitepictures site to have things for the national parks and some state parks, but very few national forest sites. I do look though, just in case.

Good luck. We just love camping in the forests and parks of the west.
