LTRVD0288 Finding RV Campsites

We want to remind our listeners that we can be found on http://www.wrvoradio.com which is the Reno Viola Outdoors Podcast network. There are many outdoor related podcasts on fishing, hunting and other subjects. We start with a clarification on the recent Arizona Fuel Tax issue surrounding higher fuel taxes for commercial vehicles.

Then John discusses finding RV campsites. It is a recap of a recently added webpage to the http://www.livingthervdream.com website on the subject at http://www.livingthervdream.com/finding-RV-campsites.html . We cover finding sites in the Public sector such as National Parks, Forests, Seashores, and Grasslands. Go to http://www.nps.gov Also in this sector are the campgrounds of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at http://corpslakes.usace.army.mil/visitors/visitors.cfm

Next are the privately owned “mom and pop” campgrounds which can include large camping companies like Kampgrounds of America(KOA) and the Yogi Bear Jellystone Park campgrounds.

We briefly discuss the membership campgrounds including Thousand Trails, Coast to Coast among others. Check our web page on these at http://www.livingthervdream.com/membership-camping.html .

Then we discuss boondocking and how to find those locations. We like blog posts by Bob Difley on the subject http://blog.rv.net/tag/finding-boondocking-campsites/ We also talked about the Boondocking .org site as a good place to find campsites http://boondocking.org/ One more site we mentioned was http://www.freecampgrounds.com/

Then we got into Apps for finding campgrounds to include:

Allstays Camp and RV http://www.allstays.com/campgrounds/

RV Parking http://www.rvparking.com/

RV Parky http://www.rvparky.com/

and others included on the web page
