Five years ago we threw all our guide books, maps, and paper stuff away, except for a trucker's atlas that has never been opened - the shrink wrap is still on it. RV Park Reviews :: Home, gps poi, www.thenextexit.com, and smart phone apps are all we have needed. We found that paper books were always out of date, cumbersome to use and heavy to carry around and store. Woodall's/Trailer Life still publishes one, I think and I have seen state brochures at welcome areas in rest stops.

Try www.rvparking.com. It's a free app on iPad and sooooo much easier than dealing with a 5 -inch thick book in fine print.

Hi letsgo,
I use the two directories authored by GS. The hard copy version can be had for 10 bucks at CW. My first choice is their PC version of the directory. It is called RV Road Trip Navigator. This is what I use the most.

We usually buy the Trailer Life every other year and use the online version as well. Rely a great deal on www.rvparkreviews.com as I find it pretty accurate and it can be very current.

Only if you learn to read with a critical eye and to read between the lines. When you combine it with Goggle Earth you can really get some good info.

Between the lines....
Where we are now, the biggest complaint was that there were too many people on bicycles! : D

I bought a book called RV Camping in State Parks by
D.J. Davin that I found very useful during my first trip in my new RV. It's very bare bones, simply shows a (too small) map of each state and the state parks which have rv facilities. We used it in Tennessee twice and it was very handy. There are hundreds of state parks but only a small percentage have rv sites, so we'd just open the book, find a park on the map and then google it for more info. From what I'm reading, later in the summer you'll never be able t0 just show up at 5pm and get a site anywhere but it worked well in April.
