I am a big fan of journaling my camping and travelling adventures. It is wonderful to look back on previous trips but also to remind myself about various campgrounds and RV parks I stayed at and what I thought of them.
I personally have two journals. One is strictly a “where I am going and where I stayed” which is more of a review of each place I have stayed. I’ll make notes of the site I stayed in, what I thought of it, and will also make notes about other sites in the campground or park I thought were great and I should try and book next time, whether they were on the waterfront, or a bit more secluded, or closer/further from the playground or dog walking area. I pop in prices for the stay or anything local worth noting. This is great for a reference when I want to rebook a stay at an RV park and want to remind myself about the amenities I loved or to request specific spots.
The second is more of a true journaling journal where I write my thoughts about the entire adventure and day itself, how I was feeling, what I want to do etc. This one is more for pouring out my thoughts, ideas and dreams – you know, the kind of one you would have hidden under your mattress when you were younger!

I love this one because it is a journal and a log where you can put all the information about the campground or park you are staying at, with a log and worksheet you just need to add your specific info to for each place you stay. Three different covers to choose from, although I am partial to the blue retro trailer which is the one I am getting. Although the purple one is their latest and it is growing on me!
