Complete rv campground lists

I have the book of Passport America campgrounds and only digital list of Good Sams list. Is there a printed copy of Good Sams or is there a complete book or books of all campgrounds and parks? Hopefully heading South in a couple weeks, from Alberta to California.
Thanks

You can buy a printed version of the Good Sam directory at any Camping World. I got one for free with purchase so I do not know what the cost is for them.

Just get the directory. Don't buy an RV or get service while there. You have been warned.

Take a look at the AllStays Camp and RV and/or RV Parky apps for your smart phone. Both are easier to use than a printed list would be.

Looking for printed versions due to not having cell plan in US, would only have wifi while at different facilities.

AllStays stores the data in the phone. Cell phone service is not required. I'm not sure about RV Parky.

In addition to the GS book, here is a website that we use a lot. Very good information.

The advantage of the Good Sam's book is that most of the places in the book, at least the Good Sams Parks have been inspected and you know that your in for. Had a bad experience with RV park we found on RV Parky, nice looking web site but when we got there it was a dump. Office bolted shut no spaces available our reservation not posted although they had our reservation and money. So went out and now carry the book. Web site pictures can be faked.

I have found that there is no one directory or web site that lists every RV campsite. The Good Sam directory ($10+ shipping) is probably the most complete printed source. Online web sites like All Stays and RV Parky are pretty thorough but you might want to check State Parks for each state you want to travel in and also government sites like Corps of Engineers, National Parks and BLM campgrounds may be left out of some lists. Many city and county RV campgrounds are not listed in any directory so do a search. Bottom line is don't accept any one source as what is available, you just need to do some homework to find what satisfies your wants and desires.

That is the one.

Besides camps, it can also tell you about multiple other things like low bridges, WM and truck stops.

That's great for government campgrounds but it does not include any privately owned campgrounds/resorts, etc. They state that they are not included because other directories cover them so you still have to look at multiple sources.
