Default Crawling locations

Being new to Rc crawling my biggest hurdle is finding a good place to crawl with my limited time for play. So I thought maybe, just maybe we can all share in a central location where a good spot to crawl is. It should work great for traveling crawlers and noobs alike, or for planning a vacation?
Keeping these spots to ourselves can only slow the sport's growth more. Please add your known spots to the map and if there is anything tricky about finding it include that as well in the description.
I have been scouring the web for sources and will add them to the combined map as I can, and I'll post a link to each individual state I come across here as well so they will be easier to work with for those that don't want to deal with all of them.

So let's make the map work for us and the hobby. If we get enough on the map they will make it a sticky, but I was hoping it could be made its own easily found subject.

Let's make this take off worldwide guys! How many good crawling spots can you add to the map? Or post a link to your known spots and I can add them.

For ios users, and probably android as well, it seems that google earth is the smoothest way to view the locations in the my maps tab. But a PC is the best functionality, either google maps or earth. Maps being easier to get directions with.

ORCRC also has a google map with locations. I doubt they would mind you gleaning the locations and adding them.

To post a pin here with an iPhone, use the google maps app, hold the location you want to share on the screen until a pin drops, then touch the address area at the bottom of the screen, then share, copy to clipboard Then come to this thread and paste into a new message body

One option I have found to easily show the locations is this app, https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/my-p...492861440?mt=8. using an acct I made to share with all so we don't all need to save all the positions to our own google accts. not the perfect app and it doesn't do much for the free version, just wanted to keep you in the loop.

UPDATE! All the shared locations have migrated into the google earth app in settings, my maps. It took several hrs after creating this before it made it to my ipad mini, but it works!

I think I have found most of the easy ones online, the rest will depend on some input from people that have the links already.
If you are familiar with google earth and maps feel free to organize them by state if possible??
Otherwise I'll see what I can learn on that when I can, but I'm guessing its a PC function only so it could be awhile

Great work.

You can remove the Arkansas Comp Spot link, as I combined all of our spots into one map a few years ago.

Hey everyone. I would like to invite you to take a look at RC Rock Crawl- and consider adding your club information. We are hoping to create a visual and searchable website for all RC Rock Crawling clubs, events and locations in hopes of allowing new people an easier way to find all of us.
