The original basecamp for gps enthusiasts

Welcome to gps basecamp, where you can share gps files of your adventures with others. We have information, including downloadable gps files for nearly every state park and national park. All of the files we have on gps basecamp use the GPX format, including gps routes, track logs and waypoints. We don't ask you to pay to download files in the gpx format as some sites do.

Our state and national park pages have information about the resources at the parks, such as camping facilities, trail maps, contact information and much more. You can get a 7 day weather forecast, sunrise and sunset times (for any date) and see a map of where the park is located. You can also get custom printed topo maps for most parks.

Gps navigation is a rapidly growing activity. When you go hiking, backpacking or biking take your gps receiver with you to record where you go (track log) When you get home you can view these on a map. You can also share your trip with other people by uploading your gps file, in gpx format to gps basecamp. On the downloads page you can find gps files others have uploaded to share. These gpx files can be downloaded and transfered to your gps device. GPX files are rapidly becoming the standard way to store gps information. Nearly about every modern gps receiver, including Garmin and Magellan today will accept gpx files.
