Fully Serviced

The sampling of maps and diagrams in this article are part of body of visual research on camping culture in there United States.  Their goal of this project is not to tell the story of any one site or even any one campground, but rather to examine how this cultural ideal of rugged American character came to be appropriated and transformed into a generic and widely replicated template of spatial protocols, replete with delightful irony and where modern services run rampant.
