I rarely bookmark a daily blog but I certainly saved this one for future reference. Thanks for taking the time to compile the list for us all to use later on.

Thanks for the GREAT information and analysis. We have, in the past, purchased and have been very disappointed with various campground directories because our criteria did not match theirs. You hit the target for criteria. You might just have a market for a new (and in this case useful) directory. We will not purchase again one of the curently published campground directories but if you ever decide to publish, it will be on our purchase list.

Once again Howard, your analysis and information provided are extremely thorough. It's a great resource for all of us, and useful even to those who may not have the same priorities as you guys. I also liked your comments about the ability to get big rigs into state parks. We tend to prefer state and national parks over RV parks also, but Tom thinks "those days are over" now that we're dragging around a 43 ft. RV! I've told him several times -- if Howard can do, so can you!! I just need to give him some time to get used to it, I guess!

Thanks for another great post!


We camp hosted at Tickfaw State Park November 2006 just after we started fulltiming. A lovely park with access to swamps and bayous. Louisiana is one of only 2 or 3 states that recognize the Federal Golden Age Access Card at their parks. Camping for $8.00 a night is a great deal.

Pat and I were your camp hosts at Hardin Ridge Campground. We are pleased to see that our campground made your "top ten" (we take it as a personal compliment). We have followed your blog every day since then and really enjoy reading about your travels. Thanks for the rating! Jim

My wife, three children, and I spent two months traveling over the summer. (work dried up..freedom!) NC to Cali and back. Approx. 12000 miles. One our stops was Goosenecks. We arrived well after dark; moonless. We knew there were "holes" around but they were not visible. My wife demanded the parking brake be set. We woke the next morning and I have to thank you for the memories. Your visit earlier in the year put Goosenecks on the to do list.


You vivi
