You can get lat/long for anywhere in the US really easily at TopoZone
(, takes about 10 seconds or less. What's usually easiest
is to type in the name of the nearest town, set the display type (on the
right panel) to lat/long, and position the cursor over your collecting
locality. The coordinates at the cursor should be displayed at the bottom
left of the screen.

You can also access all of the USGS topos for the US on this site. Truly an
invaluable resource...
