Go to Google and type in campgrounds. It will show a map. Click on the map and move it with your curser to an area you want to stay at. You can enter RV parks, State parks if you want to be more selective in your stays. Do the same if you only want to see whats in a certain State.
All the CG's will show up and just click on the ones you like and go to the website listed when the page pops up.

Allstays has been our goto because it lists nearly every park. It has a map search feature that lets you see what's in each state. It includes the COE cgs as well. It's very user friendly even on the road. You can go to the website or download the app. After trying all the others, Allstays is the one that we use exclusively now.

This is just about my most used site, https://www.campgroundreviews.com/. Followed closely by http://www.uscampgrounds.info/.
https://www.campsitephotos.com/ is a good one, but does have limited listings.
And here are some more that I do frequent on occasions:
https://www.campgroundviews.com/?,
https://thedyrt.com/,
Of course, you mentioned, https://www.rvparky.com/,
Another decent search site is http://www.ultimatecampgrounds.com/
This is about the best site for info on a given park, but the listings are limited, https://wxtoad.com/. He does a stellar job on photos.
This is also valuable info, https://www.tripsavvy.com/state-park-entrance-passes-3362306
An amusing site is https://www.roadsideamerica.com/.
And I believe you mentioned Allstays, which has decent info to offer.
This has some interesting info but is a bit awkward to navigate., https://www.fhwa.dot.gov/byways/byways.

Like others have mentioned, I use Google maps. Find an area you want to go and type in 'Campgrounds" or "Rv Resorts". You may have to try a couple of different words because just typing in campgrounds may not bring up all places you can camp like some RV resorts for example and vice versa.

It depends on what type of campgrounds you want to stay in. We prefer State and Federal Campgrounds because you are not packed in like sardines and you get to have more of a wilderness experience. Many of them have hookups. Sometimes just electric,but other also have water and a few have FHU. But we get by very well with just electric.With our holding tanks and by managing water usage we can go 5 days without dumping tanks.Federal parks include Forest Service,BLM,Army Corps of Engineers (COE)and National Parks.Most of the COE campgrounds are on lakes.Many have sites right on the water so if you like to canoe or kayak you can launch right from your site. Also these state and federal campgrounds are cheaper than commercial campgrounds. With the Federal Senior Pass ( must be 62 or older) we have paid as little as $7.50 a night for a site with water and electric. Or $19.00 a night for electric and water lakeside. Plan where you would like to go,then search for state or federal campgrounds in those areas.

Sorry to start this topic going again, but I just found out some new information.

I have been a long-time user of Ultimate Campgrounds, and it has been mentioned several times in this thread.

I just discovered that Ultimate Campgrounds has "closed". It is no longer available on the web, and the app for mobile devices is no longer being sold (but if you paid for it, it will still work. just no updates).

I'm sad to see it go. Now I will need to find something else to find camping locations!

If anyone has more suggestions that haven't already been mentioned, speak up!
