I am planning a trip for late this summer (probably september) to hit up all sorts of parks out west (coming from the east coast). My list includes places like redwood, sequoia, yellowstone, yosemite, grand canyon, zion, and black canyon.
I really want to enjoy the outdoors as that is why we are going on the trip and while we will have to mix in a few nights of hotel/lodge stays to recharge a little I would really like to camp where the camping experience is exceptional...
Can you reccomend any books that cover the campgrounds out west at the national parks (and maybe some not at natl parks)? The perfect book it seems would offer info on which campground to chose and maybe even provide me with enough information to allow me to request a site in a certain area of the campground (though I may very well not get it).
