Review Text

  • By amfdtp on August 6, 2011

    Like some of the other reviewers, I was disappointed in finding erroneous info in some areas of this book. But the real value in buying it, is in learning about all these little known campgrounds, many on public lands. In fact, at the beginning of each state's listings, they list all the various agencies and their phone numbers so you can contact them ahead of time. We bought these books (Eastern & Western editions) after buying our new camper in 2007. Having the ability to be self-contained - and hating "parking lot camping" - we wanted to try boondocking. Instead, we discovered an amazing amount information on public lands with primitive campgrounds. The title is a little deceiving, as many of the reduced rates are limited to seniors. But the fact that they are listed at all, allows us to get on the Internet and track down more info. No, I wouldn't use this as a sole directory if I were on the road with camper in tow, looking for a place to pull off for the night. But we find it a great starting point for finding the most amazing places we never knew existed; and we've been having a great time checking them out. In fact, this book helped us find a fantastic destination again this summer. If you know how to use this book, it's well worth the investment.

    Can't agree with the gentleman who says it is only for the young. I am 65 with a 23 foot B+ and have found numerous out of the way as well as near the Interstate places to stay for peanuts. The information tends to get dated quickly, but seems to be OK when getting just the relative costs (what was $5 is now $10, etc.) Maps are a little primative but there is SO MUCH information in the text. I just ordered the 2005 editions (East and West) for my upcoming trips.

    This book does what it says. It lists low or no cost campgrounds, they may not be where you want to go or fit your mega motorhome, that's what commercial parks are for. I don't know if it is all-inclusive but it certainly has most of the campgrounds that I know of in areas in which I am familiar.

    Best books on the planet if you are going camping! I spent 2 1/2 months on the road through 48 states and I would have never been able to do it without them (this one and his eastern edition). A must have for the low-budget traveler who wants a surefire way to find a campsite when you need one. Excellent directions and although some of the descriptions are a bit misleading, it is very easy to see where they came from. Warning: Some of the campsites are no longer usable! We found a couple that have been flooded or overrun with cows (yes, cows).

    Pretty much every campground I've been at in the last five years was found in here. It's a decent roundup of spots in each state. On the downside, the maps could be better, and the pages are the weak paper found in cheap novels. I'll continue to use it, and may buy the new edition before I go camping again.

    May be an older version, but helps locate places to stay.

    The maps and information are easy to follow. The only shortfall here are the tiny numbers. The print could have been larger and easier for the co-pilot to read while attempting to make a frugal camping choice for the night.For the visually challenged it could be a problem.
