Looking for Campground, Free Campground, Overnight stay atlas, etc.. Apps for...

My new HTC Thunderbolt Android powered smart phone.

I had seen a thread in the past that detailed a couple links to some of the apps mentioned above in the subject, but I cannot find the thread.

So, mainly, I'm looking for campground directory apps, free camping apps that can list me off free campsites in the area, wally docking map apps, and so on.

I'd like to compile as big a list here as possible so I can sort through them all and install the ones that will work the best.

We use Woodall's, Allstays Camp & RV, Allstays Overnight Parking Walmart, and RV Park Finder. These are iPhone apps.

I will be interested to see what others use.
