Frequently Asked Questions

How do you find these campgrounds?
We began the project a few years ago by reviewing lots of governmental web sites, such as US Forest Service, National Park Service, Corps of Engineers, the various state park websites and more. We found that in many cases the latitude/longitude coordinates were quite inaccurate, so we began a process of using various mapping tools and Google Earth to pin point as accurately as possible where the campsites are located.

A number of individuals have also helped us by submitting information on places they know about.

And a lot of the search is serendipitous; in researching one campgound we'll come across links to others.

It has taken over nine years to build our database to its current 31,000-plus entries. We still spend several hours most days working on the list to verify and add more information.
