Active Network launches two campsite reservation apps
Outdoor enthusiasts will now be able to make reservations for campsites at national parks, forests and other recreational facilities through the release of two new apps for iOS. The ReserveAmerica camping app (free) lists nearby state campground sites, and provides information on sites, RV restrictions, tent and cabin use and other options.
The National Recreation Reservation Service is behind the second app, Recreation.gov Camping (free), which parallels a revamped federal government national park site. The app provides information on federal recreation facilities across the US and is similar to the ReserveAmerica app in its ability to let users view photos and details of campsites and complete reservations online or by calling.
