Land status is based on 320 acre block level for speed and size. As much as we would love to get down to the checkerboard parcels in some areas, it is way too big and slow to load on most systems.
Rates change all the time and many places don't even correctly publish their own prices. Many places essentially price gouge and charge more for events, holidays
or certain months. And one campground might have ten different prices for sizes and services. So listing a precise dollar amount in listings would make us wrong 90% of the time.

Why do you link direct when no one else on web does?
We are willing to and do link to the official website for the lodging property. It's hard to find even a phone number on other travel websites. Or they require an account. You can see the official site and any of their special offerings that you may have seen on television or in your frequent customer clubs. Sometimes they beat our best rate but they are usually a little more than our rates. An advantage to booking with us is that we are on your side. We can help set things right if there is a problem or dispute with a hotel. If you book direct with the property, remember that it is between you and the hotel if you have a problem. No one else is able to get involved to make it right. We operate this free website on commission so please book with us whenever our rates are the same or less than the official site. By checking the official site, you can get the real info and pictures from the source and not risk the mistakes that many services have in place or ones that are not updated very often. There is no need to go anywhere else, searching back and forth, entering the same city info over and over. We can direct you.
Property Name (Linking to Official Site)
Accountants call this dumb but travelers love it. We're travelers, not accountants. So when you see the name of the place like this, underlined, it is a link to the official chain or independent website. We provide this so you have all the options. We will usually have an equal or better rate but sometimes they have special rates and packages that no one else can provide. Or you may have a club card at a couple of chains and want to check each of them without going through ten web pages to find the exact location. We are the only travel website that provides this link and we do not profit in doing so. We hope you choose to book with us and come back in the future.
We highlight many properties that are pet-friendly. Because these policies change frequently after a bad experience or managment change, you will still want to call or double check with the hotel for current status. This changes often and they frequently have special charges and specific rules that you have to follow.
