Don Wright’s ‘Free and Low-Cost Campgrounds’


This campground guide is always within arm’s reach for quick and frequent reference. I can’t tell you how much money this book has saved us. Thousands, at least.

I know there are many Wifi Apps that provide similar information, however, we frequently travel places where there is no reception. Therefore a paper resource is very important.

What we like about “Don Wright’s Guide to Free and Low-Cost Campgrounds” is the fact that many of the campgrounds listed are in remote locations operated by state fishing agencies and state parks, Bureau of Land Management, U.S. Forest Service, Corps of Engineers, regional and local utility companies, and small county and parks.

If you are “camping on a shoestring,” Don Wright’s guide is worth a very close look. This edition contains more than 12,000 USA campgrounds where RVers can stay for free or under $12.

GPS coordinates are provided for nearly every campground in the book, including off-the-beaten-path camping areas. (Must say that my GPS does not always lock into the listed GPS coordinates … so always have your trusty paper atlas nearby.)

Just checked Amazon and the current price has been slashed from $21.95 to $14.92. (click here)
