The Best Outdoor And Camping Apps and Everything You Need for a US Road Trip

These outdoor and camping apps can help you find a stellar place to camp, explore US parks, find a place to fish or do some stargazing.


I would have loved this list when we did our USA road trip 3 years ago. There was good information on the ranger stations, but to be able to point my phone at the Pharr Mounds on the Natchez Trace, or to be able to get the historic story of the Civil War reenactments that we passed driving through Tennessee would have been awesome.

Most of the information I could find was in the style of old school maps and charts, but when you are exploring a 444 mile route through 3 States, more info would have been awesome. I was thinking there should be an app, but this link gives you a list of useful apps for your outdoor experience, based on your interests. Feels like America is growing up. Check these out if you are going to do a road trip.

    I would also include Spyglass into this list. Using augmented reality, the app overlays compass, GPS and location info on top of visuals captured by an iPhone camera or the map itself. It can measure distance, sizes of objects, your speed, altitude and potential arrival time to the target. You can use it as a waypoints tool, sextant, compass, rangefinder, speedometer, inclinometer and more.
