Recommended Posts

Anyone recommend a campsite guide for US, specificaly SW area, we have KOA guide from last visit but this is very limited.

A guide that shows all the campsites in national parks would be good if anyone knows of a link




Looks as if you would find some by Googling "American Campsites".

e.g. gocampingamerica.com

The two main campsite guides are phonebook-sized, but at least one is available on CD; these are commercial and public site info is sketchy :






There are a number of websites, of interest:




For national, State,County & City parks, I have never found a comprehensive guide (no money to be made from advertisers) - altho guides should be available at the tourist office that you will encounter as you enter each state (& at any state park office). AFAICT,the small county & town campgrounds are very hard to find in any central resource.


otherwise, cruise these sites:








http://www.campgrounds-by-city.com/ (not at all complete)


And each state will have a site as well.

Watch out for the fees- eg. once in a Michigan State Park we were charged camping, parking & entry fees. (seems silly since you would think the camping fee would include the other 2).

Well that should give me something to sort out, pity about the national parks, on last trip we just happened to 'stumble' across a few, looks like we may have to pay more attention to tourist offices.


the "nps" site above lists all NATIONAL parks.


However, there exists also an assortment of other public parks - I have yet to find a directory that lists all such "non-commercial" parks.
