You may want to download and import campground files into MS S&T.

There are thousands of campgrounds in the importable files listed here.

just got mine last week and I got 15 to sell at the show I was working at. They are on their way. Always buy at RV shows, you save. At the show we were selling them at $20.00

I presume you are talking about the Trailer Life program. I got the 2004 version and found it to be not particularly user friendly and I found myself rarely using it. I haven't seen later versions, so will grant that it might be better now, but I'm not willing to send them my money again just to find out. Streets & Trips is much easier for my purposes, both for getting campground info and for trip planning. I believe the campgrounds in Streets & Trips are from Woodalls directory.

I use:
DeLorme Street Atlas 2008
Trailer Life 2007
MS Streets and Trips

Trailer Life a couple of years back was a joke. But now they really got their act togather. Now I like it best for trip planning, easy to use and very good Campground info.

When traveling, I pefer running DeLorme on top because of the "Rerouting/Back on Track" feature and its voice telling me "How Long to the Next Stop".

DeLorme running on top and Trailer Life running in background makes a great package. Both are tracking with GPS. If I want to see what Campgrounds are comming up, "Alt-Tab" will bring up Trailer Life and I can see which Campground are comming up. "Alt-Tab" again will bring back DeLorme.

Both have many excelent features. Just need to work with these programs (train rourself).

When you get campground info on the screen, can you "block copy" and the "paste" it into a document in another program with other info you are putting together for a trip?

I used the Trailer Life cd back in 04' and sent it back. I didn't like it.
I have been using Delorme since version 5 but went with Streets and Trips recently with a Global sat BU 253 gps antenna. I haven't used it yet and I thank everyone for the campground data base.

Does the new Trailer Life program allow searches for campground closing/opening dates? Since I'm in the northeast that would be really handy for late fall early spring excursions.

Hi ctcamper,
The answer to your question is no. One can not search by CG open/close dates. However, by moving the cursor over your route, CG information pops up in the upper right hand corner of the screen. All the information in the hard copy TL Directory is in the pop up window. This contains the open/close dates.
