Camping grounds

Since I am new to this life does anyone know how I can find a good list of camp grounds across the USA? I am going from NY to California and back this summer. Thanks

Hi there! There's a publication called Woodall's campground directory (I think). You can pick it up at most book stores. I know Barnes and Noble carries it. They have regional volumes or a national directory.

The other one is the Trailer Life Directory. It is roughly a 3" thick phone book. Welcome and have a great time.

Lightbulb Several Ideas

rtierney

You could try:
KOA

They are located all over the country and, give a 10% discount once you become a member.

If you are a 'Coast to Coast' member, you can find campgrounds all over the country for abt 6$ per night stay. Drawback, is the initial cost of ownership in your "Home port".
Coast to Coast

You might try picking a WalMart Rand Map, usually has listing for campgrounds along the way or, stay at the Wal Mart parking lot for an overnight stay. Downside; No hook ups

Look for Truck stops such as:

Flying J
They have about 150 plus location all over the country and, love to have you spend the night there. downside: Can be noisey at times..Plus: The best prices on fuel~!!

Another one would be Cracker Barrel. It's well known that they do encourage RV'er to spend the night at their location and, the food is always 'Great'.

Last, try stoping at rest site along the interstate and, picking up the instate campingground list that are for free.
Campgrounds are usually located right off the interstate~!

If you have a RV Center near you, try looking for a Woodall's campground listing book. List tons of locations along the way as well..
These are but a few in a long list of sources that you might find.

Have a safe trip~!~
ciao

campgrounds

If you are taking a northern route you should try the Airstream Park in Clearlake MN. It is about 5 miles off I-94, an hour North of the Mpls. Take a look at the website. www.airstreampark.com

Suddenly, I am confused:

are you implying that, when going from a destination to the next, some people actually camp elswhere besides WalMart???

We have never tried that. Sounds like a novel idea...... No, scratch that.

Discounted whole rosted chicken for a $1.50 for late dinner, warm fresh french bread in the morning, and all the items on clearance that you don't know that you need yet.

Who could ask for more?
