Planning a Road Trip?

If you are planning a road trip and looking for suggestions on a campsite or places of interest to stop at along the route, our Google map may assist you. Looking for a place to stay for the night or two while traveling or a campsite for a week, this map may provide possible suggestions.

Click on the map below. There are ten layers on the map –which can be displayed separately, or multiple layers can be displayed simultaneously.  The 1st layer flags are colored Yellow.

Note: If you do not see the Yellow flags, you did not do anything wrong.  It just means the Webmaster is on the site and adding more flags to the maps.  Do not let that stop you from viewing the map.  Depending upon your Internet speed, the load time for the map may take as long as 10 seconds.

Selecting the box at the top left of the map, labeled MASTER will provide access to turning on or off the various layers. Selecting the square box at the top right of the map and the wheel on your mouse will enlarge the map.

Ten (10) layers contain nineteen (19) various items of interest to truck campers and others while planning a road trip. The map is “a work in progress” and primarily based upon the recommendations from fellow truck campers. Updating the map and pages on the site occurs when internet service and time are available while we are on the road.
