Updated the app. Now when I search a state on the app it says no results. Before I could look at a state and see all parks. Now all I see is a map of the entire world and when I zoom in it doesn't show any campgrounds. I am using a android phone. Very disappointed. Worked great a few weeks ago. Thank you for fixing the app. The search area or by state is working again.

You check the box to save your payment info, but still have to enter all of it every time. You save your discount card info in your account, but still have to enter it every time. I see no benefit to the app over the website, and the app just takes up storage room on my phone. It could be a very helpful app with a bit more development, but as it is, it's not that useful.

So frustrating!! The app is great for research. But when trying to make a reservation at a spot that's difficult to get reservations, the app told me it could not book because I already had reservations in flight, but I had none & missed my dream spot that was actually available for me to book if the app didn't error. Not the 1st time either.
