Has anyone found a POI listing for the Elks Campgrounds across the U.S.?
I would not try making a new POI but I can get a list of campgounds if someone else wants to undertake the project. We travel and use them all the time as they are everywhere- and very reasonable fees for camping- usually a small donation for their services - IF YOU ARE AN ELK MEMBER
I don't have a list of campgrounds, but would be interested in the list if you have one - and I could create the POI. I have a complete listing of Elks Lodges throughout the US available as a POI. You can also visit www.elksfinder.com to see the beta of a site I'm putting together to find all of the Elks lodges. Comments greatly appreciated.
I would very much like to have your list of Elks Lodges as I have books to use in conjuction with identifying their
Thanks please send your POI or advise where I might download it.
Did you make your elks poi available on this site? If I can figure it out, I hope to make one for the Eagles and one for the American Legion.
I am very interested in a POI listing for Elks lodges. Can you advise where I can download it from?
I found this list for Elks campgrounds at the Discovery Owners web page.
Has a list for Elks and many other POIs of interest. This group has made these files available for the general public. Really nice job!
What does it take to open these files. Windows does not recognize.
I have found listed posts on the national AL site, but have not tried to place them on my GPS. That would be super.
I thought you may wish to know that your http://www.elksfinder.com/ doesn't work well with a Firefox browser.
Do you plan to upgrade to mention which Lodges offer camping? Thanks in advance.
I just built a POI file based on the information on www.discoveryowners.com. I have uploaded it to this site. I hope it fits your needs.
Thanks for doing that, I have permission from the owners of that site to use the data that we find there.
I will get that posted soon.
On the noted file there are some descriptions showing E for electric available
W for water available
This info did not come through with the download from this site nor the names and other data. Any chance this data can be copy and pasted from the discovery file to downloaded file and reissued?
Which Elks file on the DiscoveryOwners.com page has the E and W designations? The text file I downloaded doesn't have that data. If you can provide the file name I will redo the csv file when I get a chance.
My mistake. I relooked at the file I built and it does have most of the E, W, P data included. I will work at adding the E, W, P data for those locations which did not have it. There were a few that I found with a quick look. I looked on my GPS and the information does show up. What model of GPS are you using? It may be that I need to change the text Elks Lodge in the file to just Elks so that the information will show on smaller screen GPS units.
Thanks for re-looking at the file.
I am using a Garmin C340. I have not yet downloaded this file to my unit so I am not sure what if anything will show up in the description.
I did however look at your .csv file in POI EDIT and nothing shows up in the description column......
Appreciate you working on this, I use the Elks a lot on our RV travels.
After loading file onto my c340 the descriptions do appear, although somewhat cramped. Would be nice to have the city though.
I found a problem in the CSV file. In Excel there was a D column that had a format associated with it but no data. I removed the format from that column and all of a sudden the information showed up in POI Verify. You learn something new everyday.
I also found that in POI verify it only looks at the data in the first three columns of a CSV file. That makes it not handy for verifying many of the CSV files found on this site.
I also would love to get a list of Elk campgrounds. Since many lodges allow RV parking, even if they don't have other RV facilities, I'd love to get a gps listing of all lodges, not just campgrounds. Dan
Just go to the POI files and download the ":Elk Lodges" file.
I use it when traveling in my RV.
Would someone please email me a list of Elks that a RV can park at overnite.
Please send to email@example.com
There is already a file on this web-site for all US Elk Lodges
Just look in the POI Files for this file. "Elk Lodges in the USA"
I use it all the time and reload the corrections faithfully.
I made up a POI file for Elks lodges that have RV parking. I'm new, so don't know how to post it on this site, but if you email me, I'll send you a copy.
I have an Elks Parking POI file that I'll email you if you like. It's sorted by state and then by lodge name. firstname.lastname@example.org
Welcome to The Factory.
Here's how to offer a new POI file:
