I bought this book along with the "California Camping" book by Tom Stienstra and the difference between the value provided by the two books is amazing considering that two professional publishers produced both books. The Woodall's Western Campground Directory is laid out alphabetically which is terrible when trying to find a campground in an area. An example is a beach campground that is along the California coast at the edge of the town of Cambria. The campground is listed under San Simeon which is a town that is to the north a few miles away. It becomes a trial and error proposition to find the town that is used for a campground listing.

The listings themselves are so cursory as to be worthless. They provide less information than one can get from state parks or national forest service campground maps. Comparing their entry for the campground at the state park near San Simeon, Woodall's states that it has 115 sites with 35 maximum RV length, tenting, dump, saltwater swim, ramp, saltwater fishing. No mention that the ramp is only adequate for hand launching of very small boats.

By way of comparison the listing for the same campground by Stienstra mentions that that Hearst Castle is only 5 miles to the north and provides the phone number for booking a tour, Mentions a second San Simeon Creek campground across the highway and also the Washburn campground further up the bluff with more privacy and better views of the ocean, He mentions the best hike from Leffingwell Landing to Moonstone Beach, that from the bluffs it is easy to see passing whales, that there are 3 preserves in the park, including a winter nesting site for monarch butterflys and an archaeological site dating back 5800 years, that in the summer there are junior ranger and interpretive programs offered.

Writing about the campsites in addition to the information in the Woodall's Western Campground Directory listing, Tom adds that picnic tables and fire grills are provided, drinking water and coin operated showers are available, firewood is available at Washburn, a grocery store, coin laundry, gas station, resstaurants, and propane gas are two miles away in Cambria, that some facilities are wheelchair accessible, pets are permitted on a leash. Stienstra provides period during which reservations are accepted and the phone number for them, site fees at San Simeon Creek and for Washburn, additional vehicle charges, directions to the park and the phone number for the park.

With Tom Stienstra's California Camping guide the campground listings are broken out by geographic section and each section has its own set of maps to make it easy to determine the layout and travel logistics before arriving in an area.

I really cannot say that the Woodall's directory is better than nothing as there are so many alternative sources that are freely downloaded from the Web that provide a great deal more information. The Woodall's directory should prove useful in starting campfires so not a total loss.
Works well for me
Woodall's camping directories save time and money. Whether you are setting up a long trip and reserve a spot for each night's or are "winging it" you can find a variety of places to stay along with good reviews of each park. And, with today's high gas prices it's even more valuable for finding local "staycation" spots.
It is ok for bigger parks but doesn't cover a lot of the places we like to go.

I thought that it was another camping guide. Woodalls, is too complicated for me and the print is so small,. it's hard to read. I prefer a camping guide book a lot simplier and easier to find a campground.
This book was very helpful during our trips. Thank You!
I pulled the trigger too quickly on this one. It's kind of like a yellow pages of campground's. Had I read thoroughly enough I would have known this. Anyways, if you are looking for a yellow pages of campground directories then this book is for you. Not for me though...
I am so pleased that Woodall's has broken up the directory into eastern and western volumes; when it was all in just one book it was unweildly to use and like carrying a big-city phone book around with us.
