I started my journey around the US and Canada a couple months ago in my new t@g and my new travel companion; a black lab named Yoda that I adopted from a rescue. I am really enjoying it so far and I think Yoda is enjoying it even more. I was lucky to find a fury friend who LOVES riding in the car sight seeing hanging his head out his window!
I have never camped previous to June of this year!
I'm running into one issue I need a little advice with though and I figured I wouldn't offend too many people with my question here. As I travel, I'm locating campgrounds to stay at as I go given my logistics are pretty fluid. Example, I'm currently in New England for fall colors and I'm just following the color reports around.
My issue, I try to locate places to stay using online apps backed up by reading google reviews but I'm finding most of the reviews are from giant land yacht travelers so places that have a ton of great reviews actually end up being places that I generally don't like. I love staying at state and national parks but I have to stop and stay for extended periods from time to time for R&R at campgrounds that at least have electricity. Unfortunately, I seem to only find giant wide open private campgrounds where the majority of the guests are either seasonal or live there permanently in RVs larger than my house!
I'm not knocking these places but I'm looking more for places that cater to travelers and more specifically places that cater equally to small trailer and tent campers.
I'm wondering if there are any good resources out there better than the apps I'm using to locate campgrounds that are more what I'm searching for.
I primarily use the ParkAdvisor app when I'm looking to stay an extended period somewhere. I found a site that is kind of an AirBnB for glampers that is pretty cool called hipcamp.com but most of the hosts don't have electrical hookup which I really like for extended stays that are longer than my batteries will hold one charge.
I've considered getting a generator for longer stays but I really don't have any space left to store one.
Any recommendations or advice?
