Description

Since 1967 the Woodall Publishing Company of Highland Park, Ill., has gathered annual statistics on privately owned campgrounds in the United States, Canada and Mexico and to a lesser extent on public campgrounds. At first the information gathered consisted of little more than hand tallies of the number of campgrounds by state and degree of development, of the number of campsites in the campgrounds and a breakdown of those campsites by number of electrical, water and sewer hookups available. It has since become much more detailed.
