Angry RV Park Reviews

Wasnt sure where to post this so I dropping it here. My wife and I have been full time rv's for a few years now. We have been using rvparkreview.com to get info on parks and post your opinion on parks. We have noticed lately alot of reviews are showing high marks but when we get there frankly its a dump. I have seen so many online review sites its unreal. any suggestions on a sure good site.

I use RVPR often. I always read all the reviews, not just the latest ones. I look to see how many reviews are in the same ball park as far as rating. If a review looks "Scripted", it is suspect to me.

We use that site regularly and have found it to be fairly accurate. However we do search this site and others for other comments as well.

I have talked to several people and most use RVPR. I will continue looking and will post again if I find a good one.

I wish the powers-that-be here would add an RV Park Reviews sub forum under the Travel Chat section.

Honestly... I think the best is still TripAdvisor.com. Most popular review site and most place have many many reviews. I try to stay away from reviewers that have just a few posts. I look for "Top Contributors."
Hope this helps.

When planning a future trip I use RVPR as a tool to get an idea of what "others" may think of the place. What I may think is 'heaven on earth' may be 'hell on earth' to others. I try to read between the lines on what is written and look at maps to see if the park is near a hiway, railroad, factories/industrial plants. Some people are not bothered by noise but I want to be relaxed when I camp. I also pay attention to the dates the review was given. If a park hasn't had a review in a couple years, that would be a red flag for me. A park is like a golf course, if they don't maintain, it will go downhill in a hurry. If the park doesn't have a website, I bypass it because they apparently are not proud enough of their product to want to show it off.

But the short story; it's just one of the tools I use to plan trips. Not everybody sees the same thing. What's important to you may not be important to me.

RV Park Reviews

When looking for somewhere we alway use RVPR. We read reviews going back several years and also other reviews of contributors to get a feel for how they grade places. Like others, if a park hasn't had a review for a few years I tend to steer away from there. What does amuse and confuse is when a park has consistently bad reviews but experienced reviewers still go there and then moan like a drain about how bad the place was.
If I can find reviews on sites like Trip Advisor I will give that some consideration after cross checking back with RVPR. Places like Trip Advisor and even Face Book tend to have more photos that are potentially more honest than the RV Parks own website

I wish Trip Advisor had more info for RV Parks. I would be happy to review the parks where we stay. I certainly review restaurants & attractions. I appreciate the fact that the business owner can reply - whether to a positive or a negative review. I sometimes wonder on RVPR what the other side of the story is. I

I've tried creating a couple of RV Park locations for Trip Advisor but one was bounced - I was told it didn't exist - and I'm still waiting to hear back about another well established place I visit north of Spokane.
