We have only been rving for a short while and am having problems finding campgrounds suited to our liking. Since all rv'ers have different wants, likes, and needs the campground reviews are not always the best bet on finding a park to our liking. I generally read the review then go the CG website for more info, but what I usually find is that the website has outdated photos(photos of the park when NEW). I find it hard to understand why people would give bad reviews on a CG that looks as perfect as the pictures on their website. This concern was also brought up in the Topic on this forum "Pictures in review". I think adding a space for current and updated photo into the review would be a good idea. Just my 2 cents.

It is ADVERTISING!!! Of course they are going to show their best atributes. Disneyworld doesn't show the long lines for the rides on their website. Restaurants don't show the cockroaches in the kitchen. People with profiles on dating sites don't show pictures of their fat arses. RV parks shouldn't be expected to show the inside of the sewer pipes or the view out the back of the park that looks into the city dump. That is why review sites are valuable and why asking questions is valuable. Buy anything off of the advertising pictures and you are most likely going to be very disappointed.

When I look at the photos on a campsite's webpage what I am looking to see is what the sites look like. At best there is a long shot of a Class A and generally it is impossible to really see what the site is like. I, too, am tired of seeing photos of the pie eating contest, kids in a wagon, and a photo of the gift shop. These may say the campground is family and kid friendly, but a few photos of that with a concentration on showing what the sites look like would make me make a reservation a whole lot faster. If the idea of advertising and a website is to encourage business, so many campgrounds go the wrong way about it.
