This is a list of some EXCELLENT camping books. The first three are in my library and answer all the questions you will have about car camping and more.

The rest are also excellent and may be more suited to your specific STYLE of camping. At the very bottom I have attached the books through Amazon for you to review for yourself.

  1. First off you will NEED a book by Tom Stienstra for your area/state or "The Best In Tent Camping" by Cindy Coloma & Bill Mai. Both of these authors give you camp ground ratings and are a great starting place for planning.
  2. Next IF your really new to camping, "Camping in Comfort" by Lynn Haney will give you all the basic information you need to decide what type of camping you want to do and what equipment you will need to make it happen. This is a great "overall" book that is easy to read and not very big.
