I converted this .an1 database from http://www.discoveryowners.com/cginfolinks.htm. Permission was granted by Bob Cook (owner of the site) It is a Database of National Park Service operated (direct or concessionaire) destinations. The primary source of the information placed on this database is the www. nps.gov.
The database includes locations of the National park, monument or recreation area with Information Phone Number and the campgrounds located within its borders which can accommodate RV's. The campgrounds were located using the NPS's own Park Brochure Maps, along with Delorme Streets & Trips mapping software and verified using Google Earth (whenever resolution makes it possible).
Note: If a NPS campground, operated directly or through a contract-entity (concessionaire) cannot accommodate a motorhome or trailer, it is not included in this database.
Most NPS campgrounds have no hookups. Where amenities are present, they are identified by Water or W , E30 for 30amp electric, S for Sewer or Dump for Sanitary Stations.
Length limits on RV's are indicated whenever identified. In general, anything under 30' is OK. Many popular campgrounds accommodate up to 35'. If there is NO NOTATION about a length limitation, then there was no limit stated on the website! Can you assume that your 40 footer will fit? That is why the phone number is there!
Where reservations are accepted, the Reservation (REZ) Phone number is noted. Bear in mind that all campgrounds "set aside" a number of their sites for drive-up visitors. Some Reservations Service Agents require a fee for making the reservation. At the most popular campgrounds, "in season" reservations are a must.
Whenever a difficult or unusual driving condition to a campground has been mentioned in the NPS description, a brief note is added to the location. IT IS WISE TO CALL AHEAD IF TRAVELING OFF SEASON OR IN REMOTE AREAS TO CHECK ON ROAD CONDITIONS!
