I like it.

AAA for the road and USGS for the backcountry.

This Thread has worked out well for me.

[QUOTEAnyone remember laying a map out on the hood of their car? I miss those days...[/QUOTE]

Yep, and after picking up the map at the local gas station while they washed my windshield and checked my tires and oil, perhaps even picking up a free gift.

and, as if all the above aren't enough, and you want the most minute detail for each state....buy the Gazetteers. Almost every state has one (available at any of the above-mentioned bookstores)...they show every trail and secondary road in detail. I love those things. Safe travels. jon

Thumbs up Aaa

hi who remembers the great maps and trip-tic from them ?
we recently needed campground info. we got the great tour book but also got the Woodalls campground guide.

has anyone used them ??? I do all the stops and look-sees for the entire trip but I just threw the woodalls on the floor and stomped on it. I could not find more than 2 places in towns we needed to stop in.
so my ?? is what does anyone use for that info???
we always have a KOA directory with us.

AllStays app and the Passport America app.

You can look campgrounds up by city and state, or look at a map that shows what's available anywhere you are headed.

I believe AAA still offers free maps with a paid membership. Have you looked at Google Earth? GE allows you to enter an address (or ZIP Code or even Lat/Long data). You can then zoom down to street level. A bigger screen (large laptop or tablet) is helpful. You will need an internet connection or, remember to download said data beforehand, though. Google Maps has a feature whereby you can download detailed maps so, if you find yourself without a data connection, said maps will already be on your device. Good Sam Club, RV Trip Wizard, and others offer trip planning too.

Try truck stops, such as Loves, Petro, Flying J. Some regionals are even laminated.☺

Following up on this.

I stopped by my local AAA office and was floored at the help they gave me. They gave me a stack of maps and guidebooks, all free to members.

The AAA is now a major resource for my trip planning. The bonus is, you actually talk to someone.

And they've been around since forever. I'm amazed that people aren't aware of them as a resource for travel information.

There are AAA endorsed campgrounds, and I believe they actually offer campground books.

It is good to always ask if a AAA discount is available, too, as frequently there is one for campgrounds, museums, event tickets, etc...10%-20% is the norm, in my experience.
