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 I generally read the review then go the CG website for more info, but what I usually find is that the website has outdated photos(photos of the park when NEW).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.

There is one campground in Wentworth, New Hampshire that I've been to called Pine Haven Campground. It has pictures of most of their sites. So, when you look at the campground map and pick a prospective site based on a location that is desirable to you (i.e. close to the bathhouse, pool, lake/river, etc.), you can then click on a link that will show you a photo of that site. This makes it easy to determine if you rig will fit and how you might position it on the site.

It would be a blessing if more campgrounds would do this. However, as others have said, as an advertising medium those campground with less-than-desirable features would not want to show their bad side. They want you to arrive, drive to your assigned site, and hope that you settle for any drawbacks. It is a little more inconvenient to pack up and leave an undesirable campground than never having reserved the place to begin with.

But....That is why websites like RV Park Reviews is an excellent resource for campground searching.

That's why everybody should take a picture of their site (good or bad) and post it to Google maps and earth using panoramio.com. That way everybody can see for themselves.

As said camp grounds change.I just looked up Rainbow Springs in your pictures. Now the pool is broken and the grass is knee high in some of the park due to lack of money.Unless a picture is taken in the last month they are out of date.We were there about the same time that you took the picture and you were right at the time.We were there a month ago also.Just to make a point but it is still a nice park and the river has not changed.A very fun float from the park to the take out point.This is not the only park the economy is hurting. sad.gif
