Since this was a guide to AK camping, hopefully they will include in the next issue pullouts were you could camp for free yet have awesome views...there were lots of them, we found while driving around.
The main thing we liked was the listing of the various RV parks in the area. The descriptions were spot-on, and the GPS coordinates that were listed for them came in particularly handy, as were the phone numbers for them so we could call ahead to make sure a space was available prior to driving there. I liked the use of the little icons for each place, so you could see at a glance what each one had to offer (like showers, laundry, free (or not free) WiFi, etc.
This book ended up the one with the feathered pages by the end of our trip...we used it the most!
Contrasted against the "other" AK book, this one provided a wealth of resources for the camper along this trek. Although we could tell it was written by folks who prefer their RV, it certainly provided enough information to determine if a particular camp was up our alley or not. With good descriptions that included the "feel" of the camp, we heavily used this to determine where we wanted to stay. Although it doesn't include quite as many camping options as the "other" book does, without that analytical information, it's harder to determine what's right for you. I really liked that the authors put their personal opinions into the book, along with other necessary information like services you can expect, price guides and other helpful info.
There are probably some inaccuracies to be found, but it didn't impact us on our journey. This was even true of the annually updated "other" book, so it shouldn't be a measure of the publication's quality. It was current enough for us and the truth is, these things probably don't change all that often aside from the occasional private campground that calls it quits.
I can safely say that after almost 30 nights, we only disagreed with the authors analysis one time. (And to be sure, it was a nice camp...just not for a tent camper.) In one case, we found nearby campgrounds that weren't listed (in either book) that were actually better than what was listed, so it does pay to be aware of your surroundings. Other than that, it made selecting the right camp for us very successful and we were able to enjoy some really nice campgrounds overall. Whether you're planning an RV trek or tenting it like we did, this book should be in your arsenal of resources for that trip!
