Our new universal apps for iOS devices such as the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch have been released and are available in the Apple iTunes store. Here are some screenshots that highlight features of the apps.
When the app is first opened, this screen appears, which allows the user to select the types of campgrounds in which he/she is interested, such as US Forest Service, BLM, county or city parks.
Scrolling down that first page a bit brings into view more filtering options, in which the user can choose his/her preference for style of camping, e.g., Tent, RV or Hike-in.
The buttons at the bottom of the screen can be used to turn all options either On or Off.
This page can be accessed anytime by clicking the circular arrows at the bottom of the Home screen.
After entering preferences, click "Done" and the Map screen appears with your location in the center (assuming your device is GPS-equipped) and shows icons for nearby campgrounds.
Tap on an icon to bring up a banner with the campground's name.
Tap on the blue arrow at the right of the banner to see the full details about the campground.
If you want to add this campground to your favorites list, tap the white heart in the upper right of the details screen. The heart will change from white to red, indicating that it has been added to your favorites list.
To see your list of saved favorites, return to the Home screen and tap on the heart in the lower left corner.
Returning to the Map screen shows the red heart that replaces the campground type icon to show that it's one of your favorites.
To see a list view of campgrounds listed in order of distance from your location, tap the magnifying glass at the bottom of the Map page.
From the list view screen, you can sort the data several ways. Tapping the Sort button in the upper right will give you several options.
Sorting by Name presents the list in alphabetical order, with letters on the right side that let you jump to locations beginning with that letter.
Likewise, sorting by State will present the list by state, with the option to jump to any state by selecting its abbreviation in the right column.
You can also sort by Type - who owns/manages the facility.
Now all you need to do is find out how to get to the campground of your choice. From the Details page for that campground, tap the curved arrow button at the bottom of the screen. The next screen provides several options for maps.
In this example we chose Apple Maps, which provided this routing:
