Camping the North Shore is the best camping guide book out there because it only covers the best area for camping; the North Shore. This book has info on every single campground on and near the North Shore (over 60!). The 23 best campgrounds each get their own chapter. Each chapter starts with a detailed description of the campground, the campsites, and the vicinity. Next comes info on when the campground is open, the number and type of sites (RV, tent, cart-in, etc), getting a site, making a reservation, facilities, fees, contact info, activities and features. Driving directions and an excellent campground map are also included. Every chapter ends with S'more to See & Do; an entire page or more describing a few unique activities at the particular campground.
Should none of the 23 best campgrounds be what you're looking for, go to the back of the book. There is info on another 43 North Shore campgrounds. Included is enough detail about each one to find the place and to know what you're getting into.
If you like camping and hiking, biking, fishing, canoing, pizza delivery, or shopping, you should get this book. No matter what your interests are, Camping the North Shore will help you find the campground, and maybe even the campsite, that is best for you.

I initially checked this book out from our local library, but after reading it decided we should have our own copy. We are tent campers and like to be away from the "big rigs" so really appreciate the details about the specific camp sites. We haven't camped on the North Shore for years and look forward to being there in a few days!! I can't comment on how it all turned out, or share photos, as we haven't been there yet! We have made all of our reservations and can't wait to be on the North Shore! We will bring the book along!
