I hate to tell you this but there isn’t a list of campground approved generators. However, I can give you some tips about which generators are likely to be accepted at all campgrounds.
As long as your generator doesn’t exceed 60db or cause unreasonable noise, your generator is welcome in national park campgrounds and likely any other campground unless they posted specific rules against generators.
You can read the national park rules in 36 CFR Section 2.12 if you want to but basically, you aren’t supposed to disturb everyone by being super noisy and over 60db is the limit they put on generators when you go camping.
List of Generators Operating at 60db or Below

Campground Approved Generators Conclusion
It would be nice if all campgrounds decided on a list of generators they would approve but for now, this is the best way to figure it out. I hope that you have a great time on your next trip and don’t have to make too much noise.
