Just got back from a month long trip up to Virginia and Outer-Banks (gas prices were great). While traveling, we use mostly the Microsoft streets and trips, corp book, state park books and PP Anerica. Streets and trips used to have a narative about the parks they listed. Now they just list a phone number. While I understand there are different stroks for different folks, I personally would like to have a better feel of what kind of camp gound I am planning on staying in. In my opinion, I think companies like Woodall, Good Sam and others should meet and come up with an up-to-date catigory of campgrounds. Some I stayed in are mostly perm resident, with built decks, flower garden and etc. Others a whole lot of mobil homes. Some allow seasonal campers (for a whole year or years) While I think its okay to have these kind of parks, I think "us" campers deserve a better diffination of whats out there. I have seen "Resorts" that I would not stay in. While I do not have the answers, I would like to see some "experts" get together and agree on the various type of camp gound. Just my opinion. s/Toby

I bought the Trailer Life Cd and it is great. Lists tons of parks as dots on the map with a full descriptions on the right hand pane.

Shows total sites then says how many are actually available for camping. also pricing.

Once you learn that a park with 730 sites has only 10 for daily drop in's. These are permanent parks with, as you say, flower gardens, car ports and all that house type stuff.
Checkout Trailer life.

I also use Delorme and Garmin mapping software in conjunction with the TL CD.

My GPS puck wont work with TL or MS Streets. Weird.
