I really like the intuitive interface of this app. It makes it so much easier to find, explore and book the campgrounds. My favorite feature of this app is the ability to browse maps of each campground. This map is an absolute game-changer, as it allows you to visually explore campgrounds in your desired location with ease. This interactive map lets you pinpoint exactly where you want to set up camp. Outstanding job on building this app!

It is a simple and informative app. Regardless of the monuments/parks you wish to vist, they cater times/quantities, and even show further rules/costs. (It would have been disastrous to just show up, and have a 4 hour wait!) •No way to 'confirm' military/veteran status. (As some offer discounts, and some are free!)

Great app. Very easy to navigate and use. One thing to note that's not stated obviously is that you can't alter a reservation starting on the first date of the reservation, even if it hasn't started yet (for example, when check in is in the afternoon). Would love to see this change so that reservation can be altered for any remaining time. For example, if you need to leave early or add people. Otherwise no complaints.
