I posted a review that was accepted on 9/17/2012 on Farewell Bend. (Huntington) but never published or posted to this review site. Since I included a lot of detail for accuracy in case an RVer' was looking for a site that could pickup up Verizon cell phone service, which means Internet with a smartphone, I was disappointed when the review was not published. In further checking, it seems that a lot of reviews are painfully old so I suspect you won't get much current information, at least in Farewell Bend. But in case you need the Internet, site #112 can do it, with a booster. My SS was actually -59 dBm ... which is a good as it gets.

I understand the reasons for moderating posts, but I have an issue with a recent review I made. I'm sorry for hijacking this thread...

I recently tried to post a review on a park that we *tried* to stay at but the check in experience was so bad that we ended up not being able to even get in. My submission was denied.

I have tried to contact the park to no avail and I think it is important for others to know about the experience. Is there somewhere else on this site where I can post this particular issue? I am new to this review site, but travel full time in my rig with family in tow. I'm not big on bashing a park and understand that things just happen sometimes but also feel that each person's experience helps to paint a better picture of the park. Thanks!

Yet another example of inconsistency with following "the rules" for posting reviews. Apparently your experience not actually staying in a park is not a helpful review but this one is:

We read the reviews on this campground and choose it because it had everything we needed. Upon arrival, we were told the daily rate was $32 for 2-3 people. When we asked for an internet code, we were handed a rate sheet, starting at $3.95 for 1/2 hour and ending with a monthly rate. We know that some parks charge for internet (although in our travels thru most of the US and CA we have never paid), but $4 for 1/2 hour is ridiculous. We drove another ~15 miles and found a wonderful campground for $26.50 per night with free internet. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel

I agree. In my opinion this "review" does not meet our criteria for posting. However, it was posted over 2 years ago, and I hope we have gotten more consistent since then. At least we have tried to do so, but some bad reviews do slip through.
