This is what I do:

Clicky

It allows me to zoom into a location something that all the other systems don't have. Clicking on the icon gives me my notes. Down side is you need a fairly good internet connection.

We have used "Campers Daily Log" for over 20 years. Hand writing tends to provide a more detailed description. We don't have to worry about back ups, crashed hard drives, updated software or power requirements. Works well for us and is fun to look back at what we did a decade or more ago.

No, I don't live in the stone age! Everything else is digitized and paperless. I just see benefits to a hand written log book.

Our system is real simple. As we leave a camp ground,park,we put the receit,and map in our guide book,by its listing.We have learned that the "Good Sam" rating does not always mean,"Best Park",in the area.There are a few parks we stay at,that are not that great,but are the best choice for the area.

I use logabout It records the campground and all costs associated. You can also do it by trips etc. Check it out. Just the other day I needed to know which campground I stayed at in Roswell back in 2009, went to logabout and looked in my 2009 trip and there it was!

Great to see so many different ways of tracking this info. We currently use a Simple excel (dates, costs, comments, website link when available, link to RV Park Review. In comments we add: like/dislike and preferred sites if we noticed any that stood out, and general comments if any. We are user's of Microsoft Street & Trips, and keep each large trips itinerary saved. This too is good for reviewing what you did several years ago. We did also use My Trip Journal for our first big trip out. The family and friends all 'claimed' to like to see where we were, a quick log read of our comments that included info about where we had stayed, and look at the pictures. We have not kept that up, but it was good for that trip, and we may signup for it again when we take out Alaska trip next year.

I did like the Google Maps option, like the way it seemed to flow. Will look into doing this too, but will retain the Excel, as it is easy to export costs to other documents.

I also make it a point to update RV Park Review, as this is only as good as those that post what they see along their travels.

Best to all, have fun, be safe,

I plan every trip using Microsoft's Streets & Trips to lay out our route and stops. The pinpoint balloons allow for brief notes. I usually include phone, address, website link, and a word or two about the site. I save this overall map. I then save each leg of the trip as a separate map for navigation as we travel. I also keep a blog that has pics and narative of our trip. Our blog now has 5 years worth of our travels. It's easy and free at www.blogger.com

We keep a 3 ring binder categorized by state inserting the campground brochure given at the time we registered. We also note likes and dislikes and other preferred or not preferred sites.

If you rate them on RVparkreviews you don't have to do anything else. You can just click and it will list your ratings for different parks.
