RV camping comes with many questions, especially if you're new to the activity. Let's start by defining RVs. A recreational vehicle is a vehicle used for recreational purposes that includes living space. The setup varies based on the specific type, from a basic camper van to a huge motorhome with slide-outs. RVs go by many names, including recreational vehicles, motorhomes, travel trailers, 5th wheel trailers, camper trailers and camper vans. RVs fall into two categories: motorized and towable.

This is my favorite campground finder for the West. It is the best. Period.

Who am I and why do I say that? I am an AVID Casita camper who (along with my husband and a dog) has made it my mini mission to camp in every area of the West. While I am in an area I scout out other campgrounds in the area (for future use) and to see if I agree with what Moon's sez. I take notes in the book.

What this book is NOT: It is not filled with advertisements. In fact, I do not think it has any. It does not tell you where Wal-marts are, where cheap gas is or where you can pick up fuel filters for your Monaco.

What this book IS: Well organized, logical, easily referenced, straightforward, honest and accurate (in ratings - NOT pricing). It is voluminous. It is compact.

Miscellanea: The scenic ratings are fairly accurate. I have stayed at or visited most of the camps in the Olympics and along the Oregon coast and they have proven themselves accurate (IMO) within a point or so. I think they favor lakes over rives and I given to get a little more dreamy over mossy fog shrouded trees and cliff banks over the ocean than they do. I also think they include boat ramp access as part of the scenic rating. But I know that now and can read into that with their rating. They admit that scenic is very subjective - I think they do a very even handed, objective job with their ratings - given the subjective nature of it.

Tom Stienstra puts together a good reference book on probably every single campground on the West Coast of the united statesa. One of the things I liked about it was the addition of Parkgound limitations on RV sizing. Another words each camping spot came with information on what length of RV the campground could acoommondate, ie. up to 28ft or up to 33ft etc. Another thing I liked was the listing of what services were available at each camp ground, ie. propane, minimart, picnic tables and barbacue pits etc. Also what dates the camp grounnds were open through. Tom's personal recommadations on the camp grounds were included as well. Recommended for thoes planhning to RV throughout the western united states, a good planning guide. Recommended.

I had previously purchased several editions of Sientra's "Camping in California" which we have used extensively on motorhome expeditions. My favorite was actually the first one I purchased in the mid-nineties. The subsequent editions were never quite as good and more difficult to follow. When I saw that he wrote this guide specifically for RV camping....I was very excited to purchase it....but what a let down. It is very vague and not nearly as helpful as TrailerLife or Goodalls. Consequently, I would not recommend it. However, the aforementioned Foghorn publication of California Camping is much more helpful...even for large RVs.

I'm really impressed with this book. I used it while touring northern California. It's descriptions are right on, and it offered a lot of information that would have been difficult to pull together otherwise. Well worth the month.

Very informative. Too bad it's a little old. But at that price, how could we go wrong? This is a 'must-have' book for those who don't have internet, or if you just like researching different campgrounds.

Looking through the pages of this book, I thought it would be helpful to my husband and myself while RVing. We went to two of the sites listed for Tehachapi, California. The listings made the campsites sound clean with many modern amenities. Both sites were neither- they were primitive and run down. This book needs to be updated. I was very disappointed with it. I will definitely cross-check any information from this book with another guide.
Tolrajas
There are plenty of campground listings but this is one of the few maybe only real guides. The short descriptions & Scenic Ratings of each campground are really helpful. Not every bit of the info is accurate. For the places we've visited, the Scenic Ratings are a realistic indication of what to expect.

And since the book is not filled w/ ads, it isn't the size of a major city phone book.

There are lots of ways this could be improved. A searchable CD or web version would be great. A symbol for no drinking water at the top of each listing would be a big help especiall for desert areas. The Best campgrounds listing at the beginning of each section is good but some tables at the end showing say campgrounds that are tents only or w/ hookups, or....... would be very helpful. Or use different symbols for different types of campgrounds on the maps.

Last but not least, hope Moon publishes something like this for other multi-state regions.
