Are there any Map programs I could use for my game?

"Campaign Cartographer" immediately springs to mind. I've had trouble finding a functional copy from bittorent sites though.

Campaign Cartographer is nice if you want highly detailed maps, but it has a steep learning curve. Dundjinni is a bit simple (based on the trial version that I used) can work just as well...

I was just spouting off the first thing that came to mind :D

I'm guessing you want to make your own, but if you're open to it there are a lot of good maps already out there. Don't forget about Wizards' Map a Week. There are some good little gems in there and it goes back for years. For overland maps, real-world maps can also be pretty good, especially some of the really old ones. Change some names on regional maps and few people would know the difference. National Geographic is a great source, if you have the magazine. If not, you can also try poking around the mighty Google.

The Fractal Mapper is a bit easier than the Campaign Cartographer, but the maps don't look as nice.

I second this. Fractal Mapper = Sexy. I played with the trial version for a little while and thought it was awesome.

Microsoft Excel.

Seriously.

Just resize all the cells into 1x1 squares and use the drawing tools to plot out your map. Simple, and if you work for an office you already have everything you need. It's also handy if you DM from a laptop.
