I think this should have been put in a review of the CG rather than in the forum.

Agreed, it would be better served in a full review. And it's difficult to "BEWARE" when we don't know which Ninilchik campground the OP is referring to...

As currently written, it would not be approved for posting. The isn't any information about the campground facilities.

How about doing everyone a favor and posting a review? I find that most folks only post positive reviews which don't help. If it's awful let everyone know which ones to avoid. We were in Ninilchik about the same time as you and also had an awful experience. Curious to know if its the same park.

As one of the admins for this website, I can only speculate that you haven't read many of the reviews online here or maybe you've only been interested in nice campgrounds. I can assure you that there are plenty of negative reviews posted and, at times, it seems as if the primary role of the admins is to try to get reviewers to reduce the level of vitriol in them! laugh.gif

Painting with a pretty broad brush, aren't you? Had a bad stay in some park in Ninilchik, Alaska and now you are saying campgrounds everywhere in the country are out to take your money and make you a victim. Of course most parks take your money with no sense of guilt, because they are offering you a service. They give you a site with the requisite hookups and amenities and you give them your money. Why should they feel guilty? In every industry there is a bad apple or two, it doesn't make all the other businesses in it bad as well.

If your review is the one I just read I agree that some of the problem was bad. However, I think you went overboard in your review. There were other reviews that you wrote that got a pretty good written review but bad ratings because of how it compared at other CG's. I have a feeling no one would make you happy unless it is a resort with practically free prices.

I think the review was over the top because nothing went well at this CG and if you look at the first review you would think the CG was awesome and full of local charm. And I agree it was probably written by the CG owners buddy. I appreciated the review (if it is the same one others are looking at). The more info the better. And I think the reference to inaccurate info comes from the CG website not necessarily this sites review. But it does validate the need for continuing to submit reviews.

You got to love it - the OP joins July 21, posts one time on July 21, and if you look at their profile, was last online July 21

Totally disagree with this, what better way than to keep away business from the bad campgrounds by posting positive reviews of the well run campgrounds. smile.gif

Post many positive reviews myself.

My bad, I am an avid reader of this site and use it to locate good parks as a full timer. Imagine my disappointment when I pull in and the park is not what I imagined. As the reviews sometimes are older, things change and I am sure park owners have an "off" year. I will be writing my review of the park in Ninilchik where we experienced a very weird "vibe". Not sure if it is the same as the original poster, but how many bad parks can there be in one little village?

Widget> First welcome. I like your forum name. Is that for a software widget like weather, twitter, games, or just one of those non-specific, assembly line gadgets that no one has a name for. smile.gif

I understand your frustration on finding decent campgrounds based on certain reviews of them. It's more or less like finding a good movie to watch. Everyone has their opinion of what is good or bad, but some reviewers concentrate their efforts on how good the popped corn was and that is of little value in picking a movie...or a campground.

As some of the more experienced RVers can validate, there is a certain talent in deciphering reviews to avoid what you called "my disappointment." You will eventually learn that talent. In the mean time, write you own reviews so they express good information about the facilities, amenities, and services offer by a campground. Those type reviews are what I value the most in order to pick a good campground.

I read a review today in which the reviewer said that he or she would never give a park a 10 unless it had a hand-held shower in the bathhouse. I can't imagine that he/she comes across many 10's, do you?
