What is Camp Scanner and how does it work?
Camp Scanner provides notifications when a campsite reservation is cancelled and available for you to book during your trip's dates. Sign up to receive daily email notifications when campsites become available.
What do I do when I'm notified that a campsite has become available?
The notification email you receive will have a direct link to recreation.gov where you can reserve the available campsite. All National Park campground reservations are managed through recreation.gov. We can only guarantee that the campsite was available at the time we send the email. Due to competition for some campgrounds, availability can change frequently.
Can I choose a specific type of campsite?
Yes! You can select Tent & RV or RV Only campsites. If traveling with a tent, you can camp in both RV and Tent campsites. If traveling in an RV, you must reserve an RV campsite. Please confirm on recreation.gov that the site is large enough to accomodate your RV's length prior to booking.
What campgrounds do you scan?
Currently, we only scan availability at National Park campsites. We plan to add California and Washington State Parks, in addition to campgrounds available on reserveamerica.com, in the near future.
Are you reserving & reselling campground reservations?
No, absolutely not. We do not hoard campground reservations and resell them. We simply provide email notifications when a campsite is cancelled and available for you to reserve. All reservations are managed directly on recreation.gov.
