If you don't need the POI list, but have found this site useful, would you consider a small donation towards its upkeep?  We have spent many hours researching, compiling and updating our database to make the Ultimate US Public Campground Project THE largest campground POI list ANYWHERE.

 

Tips on Using the POI List

The list is in a .csv file (sorted by Campground Type, then State, then Name), so it can loaded as-is into various GPS systems.  You can separate the campgrounds by Type and load each type along with a corresponding icon.  Sorting the file is easier if you can convert it to an Excel (.xls) file.

 

Read the FAQ

 

1. You can extract the campgrounds by type, i.e., Forest Service, state park, etc; just copy and paste each block of Type into separate files. Likewise, you can sort by style of camping you preferm such as RV, tenting, or back-country hiking.

 

2. Here's a list of all the abbreviations used in the POI list.

 

3. In MS Streets & Trips, you can import the files sorted by type and then add a corresponding icon for each type, which will show on your map. Here are detailed instructions on how to do it.

 

4. Here's how to load the list into most Garmin GPS systems.

 

5. To learn more about converting files and locating other POI lists, check out our GPS information page.
