From the podcasters at Living the RV Dream:
Our main feature this week is RVing on government lands. We first look into driving on America’s National Scenic Byways. This program recognizes more than 150 outstanding roads that showcase the beauty of our awesome country. Check them out at http://www.byways.org.
We skip the National Parks as they are so well known and move to the U.S. National Forests. The National Forest Service has over 4300 campgrounds in its 155 forests. Check them out at http://www.forestcamping.com. This extensive website has as many as 55 fields of information in each campground review written by authors who have visited the camping locations.
We discuss the Bureau of Land Management’s camping opportunities on the 264 million acres they oversee. Visit www.blm.gov/wo/st/en.html.
Next up is the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. They have 2,375 parks located near lakes created by Corps projects. Check them all out at http://www.usace.army.mil/Missions/CivilWorks/Recreation.aspx.
Besides all the RVing possibilities on federal lands, there are about 7,800 state parks found in all 50 states with over 221,000 campsites.
