We did a 13,000 mile trip last year and I signed up for Good Sam Club. I found there trip planner to be extremely useful. You can plan your route and it will show you campgrounds along the way. I would say it shows 95 % of the campgrounds. Provides additional information about the campground and a rating. Once I have the name of a campground I think I might use I than Google it to check it out further. It was $25 but I felt it was worth the money for planning a long trip. I am using it again now to plan our trip to the Canadian Rockies this summer.

Scrubjaynest posted a good list of resources for finding campgrounds. See the link below. We originally bought our Galaxy Tab so we would have a hot spot for the computer when traveling. Have found the GPS on it to be excellent for getting to destinations. Also can get free app for finding campgrounds and dump stations.

The route you want to take depends on what kinds of things you enjoy but I will say, for us, every national park we visited has been a pleasure. Our favorites are Yellowstone, Bryce, Zion and Capitol Reef. I have lots of pictures on my Flickr site. There is a link to it in my signature.
