Planning a Road Trip?

Our Google map may assist you in planning a road trip and looking for suggestions as a campsite or places of interest to stop at along your route. This map may help you, whether for one night or two or a camp for a week. Click on the map below.

There are ten layers on the map –you can select and display one layer separately or display multiple layers simultaneously. For example, the 1st Layer of flags is 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 page load time for the map may take as long as 10 seconds.

Click on the box at the top left of the map labeled MASTER will allow you to turn on or off the various layers. Next, click on the square box at the top right of the map, or 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.
