PROS: A most helpful listing is last year's price ranges for each campground. Another is the addition of addresses for most RV parks for GPS use.
CONS: 1) Trailer Life is VERY reluctant to list smaller parks and Mobile Home parks that allow short term use. This is greatly needed in many cities while campers need to be "in town" for less "recreational" purposes. At least let us know IF they exist so, in a pinch we can stop where needed (and not need to drive many miles out of the city to park for a night or two).
2) Many cities that have county/state fairgrounds have numerous camp sites...even with full hookups. They are almost never listed.
3)National Parks are usually listed by the nearest town. Often, these towns are so small that one would have no clue that the listings are for a major National Park....or,when there are several NPS campgrounds, they often are each listed under a different town, and not by National Park.
I believe that these 3 CONS are because Trailer Life charges a fee for campgrounds to be inspected and listed. If they do not pay their fee, they may not be listed, or in the case of National Parks (who won't pay fees), the listings favor private campgrounds that support TL. We pay good money for the book, and should be treated better.
