I just updated my map of everywhere I've camped in the last 16 years of 5-6 months/year of ramblin'. Very few commercial ones, as I'm usually in USFS/BLM/State CGs and boondocking spots. Point at a pinhead and you'll see the name of the CG. Click on a pinhead and you see a summary of the CG, including fee (when I was there). GPS coordinates are also shown.

The map is here. Works best on a large screen, vs. a phone.

I'll be hitting the road in early June for my 17th year of ramblin' about 1/2 of the year. Hopefully I'll add a few new sites to the map.

Hope you can find some new sites from the map. Safe travels.

HI Ralph,

Pretty cool! Thanks for sharing.

Somehow I expected with 740 sites they'd be more spread out across our beautiful country.

Happy travels.

Glad to see some of you are already using it! I travel in the warm part of the year and don't like humidity, so that's why it's West U.S. biased. [emoticon]

Another great service you're providing with your map update!

Do you have a Garmin Nuvi version I can download and install on my unit?

If you ever decide to sell your rig DO NOT share the map with the prospective buyer, as proud as you might be, because it just emphasizes the potential wear and tear that are likely to exist on the RV.
