The “National Geographic Road Atlas – RV & Camping Edition” was recently released, offering RVers a comprehensive guide to the nation’s parks and campgrounds.
According to a press release, the publication features detailed road maps of all 50 U.S. states and Canada, along with: profiles of 22 national parks; state and provincial park listings; descriptions of 36 popular scenic drives; and more than 3,700 state-by-state RV park and campground listings provided by the National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds (ARVC).
“This is a beautiful, first-rate road atlas that will enhance the travel experience for the growing number of RV users and tent campers,” said Linda Profaizer, president, ARVC. “It not only helps travelers get from point A to point B, but it also helps them make the most of the journey from start to finish.”
All RV park and campground listings include contact information and a description of amenities. Icons designate parks and campgrounds at higher altitudes; those with telephone, television and modem access; tent camping; group sites; handicap access; and gas and dump stations. The towns in which the RV parks and campgrounds are located are clearly marked on the roadmaps.
The national parks section presents 22 of the most popular parks, including Yellowstone, Arches, Shenandoah and the Everglades. Profiles include an overview map and photograph; suggested activities; contact details; and information on entrance fees, accommodations, visitor centers, key points of interest and recommended times of year to visit.
The atlas also offers a mileage chart and driving time map, climate maps and a general information page with contact information for tourism offices and border crossing regulations.
The full-color, 272-page atlas is available at retail bookstores and specialty outdoor retailers, and can be ordered online at www.ngmapstore.com or by calling (800) 962-1643.
