1. Choose a State or National Park or a commercial campground. Contact them for advice on planning details, plus their requirements or restrictions.
  2. Most people today prefer three-point hook-ups, which are available in commercial campgrounds. Some have WiFi and cable TV access. 
  3. National, State and local public parks usually have water and electricity on site- but not always.  Most have dump stations. Check if on-site toilet and showers are available.
  4. Try to reserve a section where Airstreamers can camp together.
  5. A “boondocking” rally means there are usually no utilities available.  Such a rally is fine for a few days, especially if there are interesting activities to do nearby. Such a rally can be held at remote places in the National Forests, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), National, State and county parks or on private land. 
  6. Camping together requires coordination- a commercial campground can often set aside a block of sites that are together- establish a working relationship with a point of contact at the campground, if possible, to have one-stop shopping – it makes life easier. Reservations at State, local or National Park are usually on a first-come, first-serve basis and require reservations being made oftentimes a year in advance.
  7. A covered meeting place or hall is ideal – cooking or picnic facilities even better.
  8. Consider adding the GPS coordinates of the campsite, not the nearby town.
