I'm getting ready to retire. I wanted a listing of those out of the way places that I always had to pass up on my travels. They ain't in this book!

I was sorely disappointed in what I found here. They list a lot of campgrounds but they only review about 1 in 10 or 1 in 15. I wanted listings of campgrounds in West Texas. While the maps gave their designation for an RV park...not one of them was reviewed. No names, contact numbers or anything that would really help.

On the other hand, if you want to stay in a state park or BLM site, this books for you. It really does cover those in great detail. In the few private parks they reviewed, the work again was detailed.

The advertisement for this book did not elaborate on what was there...it just led you to believe it was a complete listing...which it was not.

If you are looking for a more thorough listing, Trailer Life or Woodalls provides much more comprehensive cover of ALL the campgrounds they list private or not.

The reason I really like this is it gives very specific details on each campground. For example, it will even breakdown by the site number which ones have more trees, which are quieter, and, if there's a stream which sites are closest to the stream. It especially has a good introduction (Pg.1), stating that "life is short, and life is about choices...". It would be better, therefore, to stay at the best campground one can find, rather than simply making do with a run-of-the mill noisy, dumpy rv park. And this book only reviews the cream of the crop rv parks!

This book limits its list to campgrounds that use the reservation service that is listed at the bottom of the cover. One cannot see this reservation service in the small print on the front while viewing on the Amazon site. I looked up tried and true campgrounds in localities that I have spent considerable time exploring, and the very best ones were omitted. Further, I will not use reservation services, since I don't know when I am going to arrive in a district. After getting charged for changing my reservations by a day or so, I will not use them again. A retired motor home driver never knows if he is going to drive 100 miles a day or 200 miles a day. We meander. We have always gotten a site without a reservation. If we ever get turned away, we will park in the community and check in the next day. Sending the book back for false advertising. This is a reservation company sham, and they should provide it for free.

I was hoping that the new edition would have included up to date information since the 2004 edition was published. While it is true that some campgrounds have been added in this edition, I also found several campgrounds in this directory that have since been sold or closed. Several. It doesn't appear as if information is verified again just before going to press. I find better information in campground review websites on the internet.

I found this book to be chock full of info. It is a little intimidating being it covers all states but very helpful. The enclosed maps makes it easier to locate campgrounds. I find this book helpful, informative and easy to read.

I cannot understand how anyone can give this book a bad review - it does exactly what it advertises - gives a review of most of the campgrounds in America. I have used this the entire spring and summer before writing the review. This was my first year with a camper, and I did not know where to start. One time that I went to a campground not reviewed in the book, it was the worst trip we had - apparently there was a reason it was not reviewed! I found a great campsite nearby that I didn't even know existed. Having young children, I am thankful that the book explains why they think a good campground is good. For example, I was quickly looking at a campground rated 5 stars, the first part of the description was that it was not a great campground for kids - great! Moving on!

Ok, so it is mostly State Parks and limited reviews on them as well. That's just why we like it so much. We prefer the State and National Parks finding them reasonably priced, in beautiful settings, large sites. Private campgrounds are often billed as "resorts" with stores, propane, bike rentals, pools, play grounds and that's just not what we want when we escape for a week or two. State parks also usually are limited to 14 day stays so you're not next to the rusted trailers, flat tires, lawn ornaments, flags, and such. Even when they are maintained, you get snubbed because you are passing through and not part of the "community". Anyway, recognize that this is a very limited resource, but all the parks we have stayed at have been as described and worth the stay.

We travelled and camped with Frommer's "Best RV & Tent Campgrounds" for one year and found it comprehensive, informative, accurate, and very usable despite the bulk and weight. I then purchased the "Trailer Life RV Parks & Campgrounds" for comparison, and promptly returned it due being thick with advertising and disappointing in content. I will stay with the Frommer's Third Edition and purchase the Fourth Edition when available. I would rate it 5 stars if the maps were in color on more durable paper. This would be a fantastic directory on the iPod / iPad, along the lines of "Allstays Camp & RV" app.
