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.

At any campground, or anywhere else, the children should always have an adult outside with them. Kids are kidnapped right from their own front yards so it could happen anywhere if they are unsupervised. You can check lots of websites for criminals or predators but no one can harm your property or the kids if you are on the alert.

We had a couple here that had a beautiful, outgoing 8 year old girl. She came outside one Sunday, mid morning, without her parents. My husband and I sat outside with her for over 4 hours before the parents even knew she was outside. That kind of carelessness is uncalled for.

At our campground I watch every vehicle that comes in (we are small) and if I see a vehicle I don't recognize I stop the driver and ask why there are there. We don't let people just ride through without stopping at the office so we can protect the rights and privacy of our campers. In the 20 years my employers have owned this place there has never been a theft.

I think here a little common sense gos a long way. Camp grounds, beach, park, any where you take the little ones. Safety is more than just bad people.Getting run over falling in a lake or pool or what ever. rolleyes.gif
