Found this site, while searching for something else. If you change the state name in the URL, you can go to that particular information.

This is for Oregon: http://www.camping-usa.com/campgrounds/oregon/

Hope you find it of value.

Donna, we belonged to them for a year and got some good buys but, many times on holiday weekends etc you didn't get the discount, that gets tough on folks who are still working and can only get away on weekends. good for retiree's, but to us it wasn't worth the hassel so we pretty much stick with the state campgrounds especially in Florida where we get 50% off 100% of the time, with year round camping, free fishing as well. over 65 and residents

I was just trying to show all the campgrounds in any particular state... not trying to get anyone to buy into anything. Looking at the Oregon map for instance, it shows what's Forest Service, state parks and privately owned. Thought it might be helpful for trip planning more than anything.

Great site Donna - thanks for the link! (Don't see where you have to buy anything - looks like it's free??) Spent some time cruising around, bookmarked the site for future reference.

Ditto. Looks like a free listing

The other poster might have it confused with a similar, membership club.


I also bookmarked the home page. Another arrow in the quiver.

One thing to note is that it does seem to be biased toward private campgrounds and RV parks.

For example, I just looked up Florida, because I know where many of the state parks are in that state. Not one shows up on the map. It actually does not show Florida as having any state parks (which it does have).

I also don't see any state parks or national forest campsites in Minnesota, and I know there are quite a few.

This is not to say it's a bad site, but just that if it does not show state parks or other non-private places, that might not mean they are not there.

Hmmmm, I must be missing something because I'm getting everything....when I follow that link it shows all sorts of parks in Oregon, including loads of State ones. Completely unbiased as far as I can tell.

It's particularly timely info for me because I was just planning our May 24 long week-end getaway today so, now I can get ideas of where we'll be staying! Thanks a bunch Donna D.!

Oh, in case you're looking for ONLY State Parks, there's a tab you can click on on the page and it takes you to the State Park listings. Maybe there's just more info for some States than others?

Yes, it does show many state parks in Oregon, but not in some other states. I looked up Florida and Minnesota because I know where the state parks and national forests are in those states, to check.

Raya has it right, as far as Florida is concerned, and apparently, probably every state but Oregon, Idaho, and California. I have not camped in these three states, so I can't vouch for the accuracy of the info on these 3 states.

What's listed for my own county is not very good, mostly old, tired, rv "resorts" that I would not recommend to my friends.... I tried three well-known public (state or county) cg's: Ft. Desoto (using both FT. and Fort), Anastasia, and Bahia Honda, after finally getting to the search screen. Nothing but google ads, except for Anastasia, where four clicks later, I got inaccurate info, probably another commercial campground.

In other words, this would not be helpful in planning a trip to my area, though it may very well be helpful where Donna D. lives.

I thought the same thing when i first went on but i was wrong...... without going into the state parks tab which only shows two states just do the regular search and I did Florida just for the heck of it and it does show state and federal parks but here's where the confusion is that is easily understandable.........
The legend icons at the top of the map show state and federal parks should be black in color and BLM as green in color and all the rest should be blue in color........ the site has a flaw and all the icons are in blue. Just scroll down thru the list of the names on the right side and you will find it or enlarge the map to where you know it is and you will see that the blue icon is a state park where it should be black.... Like i said i did florida and found many but they where all in blue.....hopefully the website will pick up on it and fix the color difference to make state, federal and BLM stick out.... but i sure do like the convenience of looking along a given route and seeing everywhere i can stop.
I also did my home state of PA. and while they where in blue they did show up

Please note: If the state or federal park doesn't have camping it won't show up on this map

Joe Z,
Perhaps my browser is blocking what you're seeing (I use Firefox), but I'm not getting much but private campgrounds in FL.
Yes, I see a few of our many wonderful state, county, and national campgrounds, and they're all indeed in blue, except the featured red icon Blue Springs (which I would love to see, and haven't yet).

Using search brings up mostly google ads. Searching for St. Petersburg campgrounds brings up a broken link, etc.
For my area, it seems like a poor tool, although, as I said earlier, it may be a really good tool elsewhere.
If there is more info than what I've found in the time I'd normally devote to a website (and then some....), this site (at least for Florida) is not very intuitively arranged, IMHO.

oooooopps, Donna I had the wrong name, when Kathy replied that she didn't see where you had to buy anything it sent me to rooting around, the names are similar. Mine was "Campclubusa" Sorry bout that
