BestInTentCamping-12-CampTrend-960x600Not to take anything away from RV camping, but tent campers usually prefer an escape from four solid walls.  The Best in Tent Camping series presents you with destinations that are aimed at campers who prefer a tent, but also prefer the accessibility of established campgrounds. Each guide covers a particular state (some states like CA have more than one guide) and they're broken down by geographic location. You'll find all the information you need to know about each campground, including address with GPS coordinates, a map of the grounds, fees (if applicable), dates of operation, and even whether pets & alcohol are allowed. To top it all off, the authors even provide a rating scale that covers beauty, privacy, quiet, cleanliness, security, and spaciousness.

BestInTentCamping-9-CampTrend-960x600While you may not always agree with the individual ratings, they are helpful for narrowing down your selections.  Even if you've been camping in the same state your whole life, you're sure to find  spots that may just become your new favorite location. As with most outdoor adventures, no guide can be a full substitute for seeing and experiencing new locations first hand, but the locations within these guides will certainly point you in the right direction for a great tent camping experience.
