Get Your Dream Campsite with CampScanner: The Best Campground Booking Tool

If you need help booking camping reservations at all the National Parks on your bucket list, we are the solution for you! CampScanner is a campground scanning platform brought to you by the team at Harvest Hosts that notifies you when a reservation becomes available at the sold-out campground of your choice.

How CampScanner Works

Select the campgrounds you're interested in, whether you're looking for tent or RV campsites, your date range, and then save your scan to be notified once a reservation becomes available that suits your needs.

What Campgrounds Are a Part of CampScanner?

The CampScanner database includes National Parks, National Forests, and other great campgrounds that use recreation.gov and a few other sites for their bookings. Although anyone can access these booking sites on their own, CampScanner offers a more convenient way to book that saves you time, effort, and energy. Instead of spending hours of your life constantly checking if a new reservation is available on a difficult-to-navigate website, you can just wait for the booking link to come to you by creating a scan, which is a feature that these booking sites do not offer themselves.

Scan for open campsites in campgrounds at these popular parks with CampScanner:

  • Arches National Park
  • Great Smoky National Park
  • Glacier National Park
  • Joshua Tree National Park
  • Mount Hood National Forest
  • Shenandoah National Park
  • Tahoe National Forest
  • Yosemite National Park
  • Zion National Park

CampScanner Plans

There are three different CampScanner plans: Basecamp, Trailhead, and Summit. Each tier offers you a select number of concurrent scans and scans the booking sites at its own interval. You can modify or delete scans at any time to stay within your scan allowance.

Option 1: Basecamp Plan

With the Basecamp plan, you get 5 concurrent scans that scan every 15 minutes. The full price is $39/year.

Option 2: Trailhead Plan

With the Trailhead plan, you get 10 concurrent scans that scan every 10 minutes. The full price is $49/year.

Option 3: Summit Plan

With the Summit plan, you get 15 concurrent scans that scan every 5 minutes. This gives you the best chance at booking the most competitive campsites! The full price is $79/year.
