Your Choosing Campgrounds Post


Hello,

I just finished reading your article posted at: http://www.rv-dreams.com/choosing-campgrounds.html

My question is, it looks like this may have been written several years ago.  Is there anything important that you might add or modify that is different today.  Particularly, an important new website to peruse, membership discounts we should consider, etc.

I am going to follow your posting closely, as we have a very similar criteria, and are fairly new to the RVing.

Thanks in advance,

Kathryn & Brian

Hi Kathryn & Brian,

You are right, I need to update that web page.  :)

Much of it is still the same, but we now use UltimateCampgrounds.com a lot to get our search started.  It includes almost 22,000 public campgrounds and it's a great resource for locating those nice city/county parks that are often hard to find.  I'll tend to start there now since I can see all public campgrounds on the map at the same time, and then drill down to the other web resources.

And we have substituted FreeCampsites.net for FreeCampgrounds.com which we never really found all that helpful.  You just have to be careful regarding the timing since many sites that are available and free one year are gone the next.

In addition, for free "camping" we also check out Boondockers Welcome, The Day's End Directory through our Escapees membership, and Harvest Hosts.

If you get out west, Nina & Paul's Wheeling It website includes great camping reviews including some wonderful free, boondocking options. 

Hope that helps.  :)

That is most definitely of great help!  Thanks for your response and the excellent resources provided.  I have bookmarked this thread so I can easily refer back to your recommendations in addition to your original post.  We just need to get our house sold, and then off we go!  A very fun goal to work towards. 

 

P.S.  I replied to this topic with the "Quick Reply" at bottom of the page, but that didn't seem to take.  I'm not sure if that was it's correct use.  So if this is a redundant post, forgive me.
