I am new to campground RVing after using our 5th Wheel for a cottage. Is the "Ultimate RV Travel Tool" I found on a link on Woodhall's web page legitimateand worthwhile? I am trying to obtain a good campground directory for the US & CA. So any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

There are several...and that is probably as good as most. I'm sure you'll get a variety of opinions.

I happen to like checking out RVParkReviews.com to see what is in the area I plan to visit. The reviews are by regular folks, and they usually have links to the CGs website for additional information.

AAA also has a CG book, if you are a member.

My only problem with any of the books.....they are outdated by the time you open it! Not anyone's fault, but by the time the information has gotten processed....then printed, most of the data is a year or so old, and much of it hasn't been updated annually...just as the campgrounds or people sent in the information.

On line is soooooo much better.

Hi msu1969,

I'd look online. For example in google type in "item" loc:"city"

Here is an example:

campground loc: winnipeg

I personally use Woodalls as my main source, the ratings have not failed me yet and have used the old book and now on-line version for 30 years.

Which MSU? Michigan State 67 here

We normally use the Woodalls book. It has enough choices as where ever we are going. We use their web site mostly, but do still know how to turn pages and look things up in a book when not near a computer. Some day, their will be a generation that will not know how to read an actual book. Oh well, that could be a different post.
The internet version of Wodalls gives many choices. If the campground web site is not linked, just google it.
The reviews are nice. I have seen some not so real reviews and you must look at them as just that. Someone's opinion.

If you have internet available it is your best resource I believe. Google and RV park reviews being my first choice. Google street view is a great tool. Google street view is particularly helpful for figuring out what the campground looks like, or did look like when the camera truck drove by. For most commercial rv parks it will show you the surroundings and what to look for to find the entrance. I have a woodalls campground directory, a truck stop directory, the next exit, and some other books but they all stay home and have not been used in years.

Woodalls is my choise. I like the way it's laid out, I can find things pretty quickly. Trailer life Directory seems to be popular, but I find they do not always have all the campgrounds listed. JMHO.

I used to read Woodall's on a regular basis, until I met a couple in MS: the man sold advertising for Woodall's and his wife reviewed the campgrounds. Needless to say, I threw my copy out, and now read RVParkreviews, and look for things which are important to me.
BTW I'm MSU 65.
