Merci,
I looked at the area around where I live ,and then several other random areas and all it seems to have are commercial RV Parks, RV Resorts and mobile home parks that have overnight facilities. It looks like they are mostly paid advertising listings.

In my area it ignored all of the regional parks with RV facilities and even missed a National Park.

If it meets ones camping style, it seems to have a lot of full hook-up possibilities and Resort type places that I didn't know about

Yes you are right Bob.
I understand that the website had a wider range than what is actually found there.
I find that I'm better to stick to CAA (AAA) and paper maps as well as direct communication with RV Parks ...
Thank you Bob,

Smile Camping guides

All the camping organizations have their own camping guides.

RV Camping and RV Parks ‚€“ RV Campground Search at Good Sam RV Club

Participating Campgrounds - Passport America Camping & RV Club

Are two examples. All the campgrounds listed are public and have agreements with the organizations to give organization members some sort of discount.

Each state has their own lists of campgrounds in state parks.

For $6.95 you can download the entire campground list POIs into your GPS.

Such a deal, eh?

I guess you're just lucky you live in Canada, maybe. It's free here, and $6.95 for the POIs for your gps, that's a one year 12 download fee.

I'd like to see the URL where you think it's $90.

: that is my problem in using a campground no one puts their prices for a night or if you stay more than one night do they get cheaper by the time spent or cost u more?
If they priced themselves at a decent price of no more than $20 to $25 a night I might use them more but when they travel over $25 a night I look for alternatives.

The simple answer is yes, even the free campground are noted as free. Look at site, find some of places you're familiar with and see what you find.
The sites they list are National Parks, National Forests, State Parks, County, BLM and more.

Here's the whole listing of type of campgrounds. I believe that's US campgrounds.

Remember it's a free site. You can click on the map and zoom in click on campground icons, see what is said there. If I want more information about a given campground I simply highlight and copy the entire name, including any managing entity. Copy that into Google search and then go to the campground website.

You can also copy the address and enter it in Google Earth and have a look around. Is it on the river or is it next to the dump?
