A surge can be a high voltage, a spike, a low current, a low voltage, a floating voltage, or a high current. Which anomaly concerns you?
Some anomalies seen in campgrounds are low and high voltage (ideal for electronics and harmful to motorized appliances), floating ground, and reversed polarity. Your protector might be designed for those anomalies. And does nothing for a completely different surge maybe created by lightning.
Surge is a vague term. Better recommendations define the protector in terms of each, different electrical anomaly.
