    I have a camping book that gives the longitude and latitude of campgrounds, but no address. What unit can I buy to find these campgrounds?

    You can enter the Latitude and Longitude into most Walking / hiking GPS units to make a waypoint (sometimes called a Favourite), and then get the unit to 'point' to that location, a unit like the Garmin Etrex 10 will do this, see link HERE

    If you want to see the location on a computer, you can enter the Latitude and Longitude into a mapping program such as Google Earth, like this :-
