I really wanted to go camping in southern California, touch up the Baja, get real golden. Never been to the coastal areas down there, San Diego, etc. From what I have been hearing it is more hassle than is worth the trouble. What, you can't even boondock at a WalMart? Include me out.

I like the national forest campgrounds. Their generally well managed, small, and quiet. Most sites are too small for large motorhomes with their 24/7 generators running. I have a printed book that gives information about each campground that never leaves our trailer.

Thanks for everyones input.I like the idea of the U.S. national forest campgrounds and have been looking through this site. USDA Forest Service - Caring for the land and serving people.
More my kind of camping as I usually camp in B.C. forest service camp grounds.I also like the price in the U.S. on these sites also from 10 bucks to 22 or so ,no hook ups though and that suites me just fine.
The site posted above by Jubal also looks good and I will check it out when I get more time. Directory of Campgrounds in U.S. National Forests and Grasslands - Buy Books, National Forest Forum, News Finally a warm sunny day here in Kelowna,so time to get outside a prune and clean.

Thanks for the quick reply Jubal. I was however familiar with both of the two GREAT links you provided.
What I was curious about was the analog guide that seems to work well for Dave. Sometimes I still need hard copy for when I am off grid and if one guide can do the work of the 6 I carry now that would be cool.

This might fit here if not could a mod put it where it should be . If you are Retired Military, Reserves, Retired, DAV etc a lot of bases have small RV parks that cost much less then any other park stuff I have seen so far. I am however, not a member of any camping association nor do I have an AARP card to young yet :} So I have been exploring my options for staying where I want to go. U.S. Military Campgrounds and RV Parks - Home
