The Campsite Photos site is really user friendly -- Does it include Canada, I thought I saw British Columbia but then I lost it.

For those interested in exploring a bunch of "campground finders", I have a collection of links to those I've found on my RV Information Page. Scroll down past to Forums to find them.

Vermilye, you are amazing!! How you log in all your trips, pictures and all, is just amazing to me, and your knowledge of RV parks goes well beyond my knowledge. I really appreciate, as I'm sure many others do, your willingness to share. Just how much traveling do you do?
Thank you, Tom

Ruthe, be aware that Moon publishes guide books and camping books. They are not the same type of book. We use the camping book.

Just looked at the national forest site (Directory of Campgrounds in U.S. National Forests and Grasslands - Buy Books, National Forest Forum, News) suggested by CADreamin, and downloaded some of the PDF files listing the National Forest campsites in various regions. NFS campgrounds aren't always listed with other campground guides, so this was very useful information. We love NFS campgrounds as well as BLM and Corps of Engineers.

When planning ahead, we have also found the Allstays apps (Camp and RV, Walmart ONP, and RV Dumps) invaluable. When it's about time to stop for the day though, we have had some of our best luck talking to locals in a mini mart or pulling into a ranger station (when out west). Also gives us a chance to show off our 19 and talk up Escape. We have also found "Next EXIT" (a reference guide to interstate exits) to be of some use when thinking about food and fuel.

Ah shucks! I do, and have done quite a bit of traveling - at least 10 trips across the US & Canada. Around 45,000 miles since April, 2011 when I bought the trailer; the rest of the trips were tent camping. A page listing links to many of my trips is here.

As to sharing, I spent too much time cruising around the internet looking for what others have done, and started the website as a way to keep track of it all after my bookmarks got out of hand. I don't update the RV web pages as often when traveling, but the whole site is a fun project.
