Best way to find a good campsite

Just bought a Flagstaff 21FBRS. Is there a preferred way to locate good campsites. Any tips on the TT would be appreciated as well

RV Park Hunter

There is more if you do a search on google.

I use the net and word of mouth from people at my work and here on this site.
On the net be sure and check for feedback on the sites.
Look for good and bad marks, look to see which places have the amenities you want/need.
If you have pets check for breed and number of limits.

What Ford said....and once we've camped at a site I keep notes on spaces in that park, spaces that are better, or worse, than the one we stayed in.

DH and I have done some scouting this winter. Too cold to camp but not too cold to get out and drive the 4 state area around us for weekend trips.

Google state or COE camps around you then drive, get out and check spaces, make notes, come back and book the ones you like.

Don't always depend on feedback of others. We booked a trip to a park near us that had gotten some negative reviews from friends. We drove there last weekend. The original part of that park is...meh....but the newer section is nice...pads more level, and some had *very* deep pads for the longer RVs.

Take advantage of this too-cold-to-camp weather...get out and drive, explore!

I will check out the campground website, then do a satellite view, and choose what looks like what I want.

I use the Allstays app to locate, read reviews, look at amenities etc. Been using it for 2 years to book every site we have stayed at. Couple screen shots

this is the best place i've seen for campsites, though it has a limited number of campgrounds:
