Great app for a great service

I’ve been using the website for a year or so now and it’s helped me get so many campsites I would have never been able to before. Absolutely crucial for finding sites in some of the more popular parks. Glad to see there’s an app now. Well designed and works as intended.

Developers - fix the photos!

This app is amazing except for one major flaw, you cannot enlarge and look at the photos for any of the campsites. This is a big problem! The best thing about researching campsites, is looking at the visuals of the site itself, the surrounding nature, and all the other visual elements to go with it. You cannot do that in this app, since the thumbnails are not expandable. my family and I have gotten sick of taking screen grabs and having to enlarge them ourselves so we are probably going to be throwing in the towel soon unless they upgrade those. Seems like a very basic and common thing to have and hope they will address it.

Have gotten many campsites using Campflare

I just downloaded the app, but have previously used Campflare for around 2 years. I’ve been able to get many campsites I otherwise would not have been able to. It is such a helpful site, I highly recommend!
