Woodall's Camping & RVing in
the Great Outdoors
This is a super site! It
will help you with information on where to camp, RVs, tents, rentals,
and things to see & do. Each Where to
section can be
searched for parks in your planned destination. Expert's Advice
provides great tips on every camping topic you can imagine.
Make your recreational reservations online! Choose from the following
categories: camping, wilderness adventure, cabins, day use. You
can also search for parks fulfilling your requirements -- search
results usually include maps of the parks of your choice.
This is the gateway to the National Park Service. The Visit
Your National Parks link features a park of the month, park
maps, campground reservation information, fee schedules and more.
GORP has camping tips galore! For the new camper, there is advice
on pitching a tent and finding a place to camp. For the more experienced
camper, check out the gear reviews, recipes, and trail advice.
You can also read an excerpt
from The Best in Tent Camping: Wisconsin. (You will need

This site is now easier to navigate than ever. TheBackpacker.com
includes great information for the beginner to the expert. A large
portion of the info is specifically about hiking, but details
for selecting camping equipment are included.
Daily news stories are a nice feature at this site. My favorite
tool is the Gearfinder where you can choose a product (boots,
tents, sleeping bags, etc.), select the criteria you require the
product to have, then get a list of possibilities with info about
each. And before you go this summer, you might want to check out

The Lightweight Backpacker
This site just keeps getting better and better! I especially love
the knowledge nuggets
- small tips and tricks from those in the know. Also pretty neat
is the cottage gear store, which sells gear from very small manufacturers.
