X2 on rvtripwizzard.... Very easy to use and, if you need help you get an English speaking "owner" who responds fast.

I wondered if anyone has used this service and what they thought. Or what the most popular way to plan a trip was for everyone.
Once we pick a spot (Vermont, Smoky's, Southern Ohio...) I'll get out a calender and start plugging in pencil how many days to stay at each location for a 7 to 18 day vacation. We always reserve well ahead of time. For a two week trip (14 -16 days) we will usually stay at two different state parks for 7 days each. They might be 10 miles apart or 200 miles apart.

This summer we wanted to do Vermont, which we try to do every 3-4 years. Coming from OH. the first day will be about a 350 mile drive to a state park in NE. PA. (Worlds End State Park) for 7 nights, then up to a VT. state park for 4 nights. Then to my DW's favorite private VT. campground (Lake Dunmore Kampersville) for 7 nights. Then start back east again to another VT. State Park (Half Moon) on the western side of the state for 4 days. That will leave about a 500 mile drive back home. I try to limit my driving to 350 to 500 miles on any given day.

I have to have my vacation weeks handed in by the first week in Jan. so by the end of Feb. I have reserved the whole summer. This summer over a 9 week period we will be gone 6 weeks.

Many of the destinations we have been to before and we know exactly which campground and which campsite we'll reserve. While at that locate, during daily day trips, we'll check out other campgrounds for future trips.

I'll also gather info thru: Tripadvisor.com , YouTube videos, Flickr.com , Google, Irv2.com.

RVParky has been a reliable app I use on my phone. Has a lot of features I like and I can filter what I want to view. It also has hyperlink to campground reviews, campground web site, and google maps for gps directions to selected campgrounds.
Best one I've found to date.
