I was really steamed at the Lakeside Park in Livingston, La. They advertise they have pull-thru sites and are a Passport America park. When you get there and want to use your Passport, they then told me they only have 4 sites available (the worst in the park) and that they were all back in. We were towing a jeep and certainly did not want to unhook just for the night. I ended up paying the Good Sam rate, but was very disappointed in their attitude towards Passport America.
The park is very nice, but they should be ashamed to state they are a Passport America park, it is obviously only a come on for them.

Misrepresentation of amenities at parks: OH BOY, WHERE TO BEGIN? Let's start with "free wi-fi"....translation: yes, you can get wi-fi occasionally between the hours of 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. but only if you stand on the third dryer from the left, facing the back door and wearing a metal colander on your head as an antenna. "River front"....are you talking about that stagnant drainage ditch over in the corner of the property....the one next to the poison ivy patch? "Big Rig Friendly"....is your "big rig" less than six feet wide and no more than eight feet high? Can you make make an 180-degree turns without jackknifing? Can you park your tow vehicle on top of your rig or fit it underneath? If so, c'mon in...we're big rig friendly. "Heated pool"....yeah, if you're used to swimming in the Pacific Ocean year-round, you'll think our pool is heated. Otherwise, hope you brought your wet-suit. Not that it makes any difference, because the pool is closed. "Free cable"....ok, technically the cable IS free and it's fine as long as you like 7 religious stations, 4 shopping networks and 3 telenovela stations. "Pull-thru sites".....yep, you'll be able to pull IN but you sure as tootin' ain't gonna pull OUT. Can you spell b-a-c-k-o-u-t? Granted, I've found most parks aren't bad at misrepresenting their amenities, but the ones that do do it with style....

I looked at that CG's web site, and could find no mention of Passport America. It does say "Pull through sites available" and "Please contact our office for current rates and availability". At Passport America's site, they do list this CG, but they say "P.A. discount is valid on Back-In Sites only". Do you have a brochure or some other type of advertising that says different?
