I was recently asked while traveling in our R.V. with our grandchildren. How do we know the R.V. parks we stay at during our travels are safe? I did not know. So I started to ask around. In california you can go to the MEG--- L-W web site (free) use zip code of the park, search and scroll through looking for the parks street address. This way is time consuming but affective.The other way is to search by street address. Type in street address hit search then click on blue squares close to the red star. This method is a little more complicated but much quicker when mastered. PLEASE COMMENT ON ANY OTHER SECURITY PRECAUTIONS THAT CAN HELP.

QUOTE(Kirk @ Feb 13 2012, 12:35 PM) *

If you stay in family oriented RV parks and avoid those full of permanent residents it should not be a major issue. A little parenting is required, but that is nothing new. We have only been RV travelers since 1972 and so far security has never been an issue beyond using good judgment and basic parenting.



Our campground is almost all permanent residents but we very often have over nighters. The current owners have owned this park for over 20 years and have never had a theft. If you pulled in today you would never know that these RV's are permanent. We also have less trouble with bad behavior than parks we have stayed in that are mostly travelers. Telling people to avoid parks full of permanent residents is a bit off kilter in my opinion. I think it makes more sense to tell people to always be aware of their surroundings than to put campgrounds down that have permanent residents.
