Topo Map suggestions

I have seen this question asked before but I cannot find it. Can anyone suggest a good place to get a good Topo map for a descent price. I am needing a specific selected area that is detailed. Not a regular map that covers an entire National Forest. I know the regular sites to get one, I am just looking to find something a little better than your average map. Thanks

I use National Geographic Topo and pick the state you want. There about $99.00 for each state, pricey but has the most details if your not afraid to spend the money. My Colorado topo software is a seven CD box set for your PC and you can exchange waypoints with your GPS

try bigskymaps.com. they have great detailed topo maps of most gmu's in the western states. they are broken down to gmu's. i use them for each of the units i hunt in oregon. they run $7.95 per unit. they have maps for oregon, washington, idaho, colorado and other western states. I also use the nat geo maps for my gps, they are great but spendy.

I've used USGS 7.5 minute quads for a long time and should really look to see what else is out there. Sounds like the bigsky stuff is better for around the same price. Some NG Trails Illustrated maps are great, problem is coverage. Also the 1:50,000 scale USGS maps are pretty good too, but I'm sure there are better out there.
