Trailer Life Publications, publisher of the most comprehensive and reliable directories for RV parks, campgrounds and services, recently released its 2012 Trailer Life RV Parks & Campgrounds Directory.

Recognized as the preferred campground directory by RVers in North America, the Trailer Life Directory is the “bible” for RVers on the road, according to a news release. It is the official directory of the Good Sam Club, the world’s largest RV owners’ organization, and includes all Good Sam discount locations. The new directory provides expanded listings for more than 12,000 RV parks and 900,000 RV sites, including locations with Internet access, updated campground fees, and other easy-to-use information.

For 2012, the Trailer Life Directory celebrates its 40th anniversary, and commemorates the occasion with a special section highlighting RV history and looking toward the RV future. Also new in the 2012 edition are RV coupons for savings on-the-go, RV Troubleshooting Tips and Tricks, and Bilingual Parks At-A-Glance, which points out parks that support foreign language needs.

“We strive to provide RVers and campers with the most updated travel tools to make visiting parks and campgrounds easy and accessible. The Trailer Life Directory and its new features help travelers keep up with changes to routes, campgrounds and services,” said Ann Emerson, vice president and publisher. “We are excited about the 40th anniversary of the Trailer Life Directory and bringing it to our loyal readers.”

In conjunction with the release of the new 2012 directory, Trailer Life Publications has also released North America’s top 100 Good Sam Parks. This year, 33 parks scored a coveted 30 out of 30 points under the highly regarded Triple Rating System. Trailer Life Directory’s exclusive Triple Rating System is the industry standard and is trusted by travelers across North America to provide them with accurate, unbiased information. Each year, trained Trailer Life representatives inspect and rate all private parks and campgrounds based on completeness of facilities, visual appeal and other key factors. The thoroughness of the inspection process provides campers and RVers with the assurance that Parks will always meet their expectations, whether it’s a first-time visit or if they have been back year after year. Parks are encouraged to update their services and amenities to continue earning the highest scores.
