You might try plugging in the name of the town and trying to find a chamber of commerce web site. Maybe the elevation will be there. Also some state maps list elevations for towns. As a last resort, call the campground and ask them.

You should be able to get that from any topographical map, some are even on line. Forgot to add the link, pretty simple to use:

My AAA guidebooks all list elevation next to the name of the town, if it is significant. e.g. Latta, SC shows an elevation of 105' whereas McConnells, SC lists no elevation. It would be assumed that McConnells elevation is insignificant. Wilmington, NC shows 30'. Waynesville, NC shows 3,000'. Don't have an Arizona book or I would help you out. It also lists the population of each town.

If you have trouble finding the elevation you need, let me know. I will pop into the AAA office here in town and pick up an AZ guidebook.

When I use "search" in my 2003 National Geographic Back Roads Explorer (powered by TOPO!) app, it indicates McConnells at 698 ft. But, when I move the pointer over the map the highest number is 692. Thats a bit annoying. That 6 feet could be a nasty first step.

However, I do recommend this program. It is a lot of fun and does not cost too much. I really have to get the new 3D version so I can do a "fly by".

We have a GPS, and I also have a book that lists the elevation, Longitude and latitude of every city,town, creek and almost everything else here, What might you be looking for?
Phoenix is 1131', Mesa is 1234'and Lake Pleasant is 1567'.

I know for sure if you locate an airport near by the elevation will be listed for it. That data will be pretty easy to find. That's very important infomation one needs to know when landing there.

Google Earth (download for free) gives the elevation of wherever your mouse is over.

Another potential source is Weather Underground
www.wunderground.com

although it may be limited to the reporting location and not all specific zip-codes/towns.
