Comealong, scroll down to Camping Locations & Information under RV Camping Forums and ask for advice about camping spots around where you want to go. Put in any criteria you may have, like "prefer state parks" or anything else. That way you can get the advise of any member of the forum that is familiar with the area.

I use the road atlas and mapquest when traveling. Mapquest is very good on giving you a route and you can see the towns you will be near. Just pick a town on how far you want to travel and look at rv reviews and the internet for campgrounds in the area. I have done this from Florida to Alaska and it has worked great. I only travel 200 to 300 miles a day and always stay 2 nights when camping, until I get to my main destination. I like to relax the next day and see the area where we are camping.
I like to know where I am going to camp, so I make my reservations ahead and I am booked from now to after Christmas. It is not for everyone but it works for me)
I am retired but like having a schedule of where I will be on a certain day or month. By the way I have been on the road since 3/4/2011 and have driven 20,000 miles.
I am sure you will find something the fits your style of traveling. Lots of good ideas on this site.

Initially planning can take some work. But as you lay out plans develop a way of cataloging the information, a note book, favorites on your computer, call phone something handy that works.

What happens over time is that you get to know the "best places" for you to stay and when you do then they are within easy access. Add to your planning a Woodalls or equivelent and a good truckers road atlas (gps has its failings---can't tell a 10% grade from a flat one) and you are set.

I know by now all the spots we frequent the most are on my cell phone. I used to lay out a plan, very detailed, but always subject to change by the Princess, and at the last minute----so I stopped.

Now on the road I just bring up "how far do you feel like going" I lay out the options and judging from the response I say "well pick up the phone and fine XYZ site on the screen and push the call button------"

This keeps all in our kingdom happy.

Keep a log, it expands with time and before you know it everything is second nature.
