I use the traailer Life RV book. About lunch time, we decide how many more miles we think we will be driving that day, find a city on the map that is about that distance, open the trailer life book and find a park not to far off the interstate. For example we are driving on I 80 East, it is noon, we decide we will drive 3 more hours, at 60 MPH that would be one mile a minute or 180 miles. Look at the map and we find the closest city/town that is 180 miles down the hwy, look in the book, find a camp, give them a call, reserve a spot, and drive away knowing that we will have a spot when we arrive. Works for us.


That pretty much describes what we do.

If you have an iPhone, Allstays has a really good app for $5 that lists walmarts, rest areas, gas, campgrounds, etc and uses your gps location. I used it to find a few Walmart overnights on the way down to Florida and it was great. I'm an app developer and this one is definitely a good one

2X on All Stays - A useful advantage is excellent filtering. If you travel off season you can set it for year round campgrounds & save lots of calls to closed campgrounds.

We use Delorme Street Atlas with the overlays from RV Directions. They are quite extensive and have datasets for all KOA, CC, PA, GSAM,Top rated, state and many other types of RV parks. Together with the built in gas station listings, Street Atlas provides everything we need.

If you have internet connection try www.roadcamping.com. I have used it before besides other sites in finding RV parks.
