Question Campsite Forum

Hello everyone - I wonder if it might be possible for a Forum area to be set up where we could contribute to locations (by STATE or REGION) of campsites we have enjoyed and want others to share in? Maybe like the forum for each type of AS, we could set up individual areas (East Coast, Midwest, Mountain States, etc. or even do each state individually) and post the name of the campsite, if it can be accessed for reservations on web, hookups/not, where it is located in area, etc. Would this be too hard?
For instance, we are thinking of meeting some of our family this Spring in Las Vegas. I have heard there are some great camp spots around there, but have no clue about any of them!
Give me some feedback, or if you know of camping in Nevada (Las Vegas area) that will work too. Thanks, Leigh

This is a great idea. The campground guides give a lot of information, but personal experience and impressions, along with digital pictures would be great!

With big dollars invested in a trailer/tow vehicle or motorhome, RVers are not trailer trash - yet many RV Parks/campgrounds look like Jethro and Bubba live there. I prefer Wall Mart parking lots to the many bad ones for enroute stops. More information on good ones would be great!

Reviews

We have a review section here at the forum.

http://www.airforums.com/reviews.php

It doesn't have a lot at this point, but with the number of members now present, we should be able to accumulate some good information.

Stop by and share your experiences!

Regards,

Jack

SUPER website!!

Alan, that RV website is just exactly what I've been looking for!

It lets you click on the state you're visiting, and shows you a road map with dots indicating the RV parks reviewed. All the particulars are indicated, including priices, hookups, big rig access, shade tree availability, even MODEM ACCESS!! (I'm a computer geek...)

This should make trip planning much easier for everyone.

Go check it out, everybody, and add reviews if you don't see one for a spot you've visited.

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU, Alan!

Thumbs up Great help

I am amazed on a daily basis at how vast and useful the information is on this forum!! (anyone want to put in 2 cents worth on dealing with 2 teenage boys??!!) I also THANK YOU Alan for the link to the campsite web. It will be a big help when I plan out any future trips. I have looked at Las Vegas area breifly and think I see one of the camp areas that I read about. Anyway, thanks again for the fast and wonderful reply. Leigh

one more ?

I went to the camp website suggested and saw some possible RV resorts. My question is - is anybody familiar with Lake Mead and the possiblities there? It was not listed on the website as a place anyone had visited/recommended. Might be more to our liking than right in Las Vegas area. Any info or ideas would be welcome. Thanks, Leigh

Thumbs up Ontario Provincial Parks

Ontario Canada is a big province. It takes 3 long days of driving on the Trans Canada Highway to drive across Ontario ( east to west). There is a wealth of Provincial campgrounds in Ontario. September and October is a special time here with the coloured leaves and higher site availability. Our summers here are hot and humid.

Here is the link to Ontario's main Info and Reservation site.

Itís good to have a section on this site for campground reviews!

I have to agree with Leigh about the fact that it should be listed by the state though. It would be much easier to locate a campground when you know the area you want to look in.

I would like to be able to see pictures of the different campgrounds that are reviewed also. Maybe it can be set up so that we can load pictures in this area when giving a review.

P.S. Don't forget to have a listing for our northern neighbors as well!

I was real exited to see a post from Wayne, until I saw it was from last Jan.

A casualtiy of the Hensley/Arrow thread.

We've been to a great number of proven. in Canada. So of the best times were in Alberta by Banff.

Hi Eric - Its funny that you should bring this post back up as I had been thinking of the camp review I had posted after we got back from a trip to Utah and Zion NP. I posted it right after we returned (along with a forum post) and it didnt show up, so I PMed a host, but still didnt see it. Now, I just checked the review area and ITS THERE!! Yippee!! Maybe the Airstream Forum breakdown caused it to come up. Anyway, I was glad to see it there because we really enjoyed our trip and the area and I wanted to share with all. Just dont quite know why it took so long to post. I would love to see more reviews (and pictures of areas) as almost nothing could be more disappointing than to arrive at your once a year vacation spot only to have a BIG YUCK to stay at. We will be going to Estes Park Colorado soon. Will try to get a post done of the park we stay at when we return. Later, Leigh
