The very best are the individual states from Benchmark. They're available on Amazon. Very good detail with campgrounds marked - even forest service and BLM. Not spiral bound but very sturdy. We use them all the time.

I did look at them , but our trips seem to evolve and a map for each state seemed a bit extravagant

I gave up on paper Atlas'. I use Google maps on my computer. A lot more detail and a greater search function. I can blow it up big enough for my tired old eyes to see what I need to see. If you must have paper, you can always print off the part you want.

Well, about $35 to the price! I looked at them at a truck stop but didn't think they added enough to justify the much higher price.

We bought a rand McNally at Walmart last trip. Finally got tired of trusting the gps. Now my dw and myself review the route beforehand and make the gps correspond to what we want our directions to be.
