It’s been a while since we had a new campsite guide. We bought the Trailer Life version in 1998 and the Woodall’s one in 2003. Since then we’ve mainly relied on the internet to get information regarding campsites.
That’s fine most of the time, but sometimes when we’ve been travelling we have thought we would like to have another set of eyes – and that’s what these guides provide. You’ve likely had this experience; you look up a campsite on the internet and the information looks great. There’s a pool, lots of grass, reasonable site sizes and of course the claim of friendly service.
Then you arrive to discover the pool water is green, there’s grass but only on two sites and those reasonable sized sites are next to the squeaky swings that seem to have 12 children on 24 hours a day. And the friendly service is less friendly than you imagined.
What the campsite guide provides is feedback from many many campers – and a visit from a reputable representative from Woodall’s. In other words – many other eyes, many other campers. So this book is, in our humble opinion, a worthy investment.
This year’s version has gas consumption in mind – as do most of us – with a series of trips that are within a day’s drive of major centers. So we have our copy – will you get yours?
