camping in america

are their reports on quality of the accessibility at the various campgrounds in Canada and the USA, I have found what passes for accessibility generally leaves a lot to be desired. I do a lot of traveling in North America and I am not impressed with what campgrounds call accessible.

I don't know about a list but it's important to make reservations if you're going in June, July or August. Just google the area you want and a website will come up with information.

A good place to start is here:

You do not need to be a member of Good Sam to use this directory. I have camped in all of the lower 48 US states and in many of the provinces of Canada. Campsites are usually easy to find except close to the major cities.

Are you looking at camping in national parks? Each state has a website that will list available parks and the type of camping available. If you are going this summer you better get hopping as sites get gobbled up quickly. Good luck

1503 posts is where you can make reservations at most forest service and national parks. You can select accessible site. If you look at a campground map it will show which sites are accessible. This is for the US. I've only made reservations in Canada through the Parks Canada website -

I love the moon books for finding campgrounds.

The "accessible" sites I know of have paved pads and driveways and raised fire pits. They are close to the rest rooms via a smooth surface. Do campgrounds on other continents have more accessibility features?
