Campground Directory Recommendations

My wife and I are anticipating the arrival of our new HTT after a long camping hiatus. We've been doing the KOA Kamping Cabins for a while (yuck) and are ready to become campers again. I see there are many campground directories available but would like to hear which ones are preferred by the seasoned campers.

Regards,
Terry & Karen

I prefer the internet. The directories can be used if the navigator so chooses while you drive. My mistake if it is like us, she tells me where to go, how fast to go and watches the road too. She is kind enough to let me hold the steering wheel though. We use Woodalls and get a new directory every 3 years. I still prefer the internet but the DW needs Woodalls to make sure the internet is right.

Regards,

Bill & Linda

The internet, Federal recreation, camping and tour reservation information - Recreation.gov
State parks and fed ares are the best... inexpensive, clean, and reality safe. (at least safer than some of the private camp ground I have been to)
I find woodall's, Good Sam and such are very limited... ever their web sites. Only a handful of campground when there are always so many more out there.

If you like the outdoors look up the Corp Of Engineers camp ground. Becouse they are C.O.E they will be near a dam and lake and most have hookups and Bath houses. We have been at some in Pa. and WV. We have had deer and even a skunk in our front yard.

Here is my favorite. It is essentially free if you have internet access. Searchable by state, city, main attraction.......It is reviews by real people that stayed there, with dates and prices. Most have a link to the actual campground website, if they have one. Happy Camping.

The Internet is fine for research, but when we're on the road on long distance trips we always carry either a Woodall's or Trailer Life campground directory with us. I wouldn't be without one.

I carry a Woodall's or Trailer Life, also. When doing research on the net, I cross reference with the books to get a better idea of what the campground is like.

I think I saw where Woodall's and Trailer Life plan on doing a joint directory starting in 2013.

Just got our TT in Nov so we have not used it too much yet. I did use the Good Sam Trip Planner coming from MO to NV and it was fine. Also, received a Forest River Travel Guide w/ the new trailer. I have used the RV Reviews and the Recreation.gov sites mentioned above in planning for this year.
Agree w/ mtnguy about having a guide in hand on the road.
