The Ultimate Canadian Campgrounds app is dedicated to presenting information about publicly-owned, non-commercial campgrounds across the Canada. In this app you will find over 4,230 facilities, ranging from full-service campgrounds to remote boondocking and back-packing locations with no facilities or services. The data is the result of a collaboration between the Ultimate Campgrounds Project (www.ultimatecampgrounds.com) and Tom Hillegas’ USCampgrounds.info. These two sources are widely acknowledged as the two most comprehensive sources for public campground information. Included are Conservation Areas, Provincial Parks, Regional Parks, BC Forest Service Parks, Territorial Parks, National Park, County Park, Municipal Parks and Utility Company, First Nations, Non-Profit and Miscellaneous locations. THIS APP DOES *NOT* INCLUDE PRIVATE/COMMERCIAL CAMPGROUNDS, ONLY PUBLIC. This app is intended for everyone regardless of their camping interests - it can be filtered by the facility owner, such as BC Forest Service, provincial or county. Users can also filter on camping preference, such as Tent, RV or Back-Country. Mark locations as your "favorite." Send location data directly to our Road Trip Planner app. Import GPX data, making it easy to find campgrounds along your route.
Tapping on a campground location on the map shows available information about each location such as total number of camp sites, number of RV sites, number of electric hookups, whether there are showers and/or an RV dump station, fees, nearest town, phone number, elevation and web site. Of course the app can only show what information that can be discovered for each location. Map caching for offline use is part of the app. While this app works best with Internet access, it is not required as the campground data is embedded within the app. Some supplemental services do require Internet access but this does not detract from the overall usefulness of the app. In an effort to continually improve the accuracy of the data, users are encouraged to use the feedback function on the Ultimate Campgrounds web site or the email function within the app to submit corrections, additions and suggestions.
