Hi,

The admins are all volunteers and this is a free site with over 175,000 reviews. At one review per minute (impossibly fast imho) it would take over 100 8 hour days to vet them all.

No one is forcing anyone to use this site. The wonder is that there are so many excellent reviews.

Don

Have lost track of the number of years we have used this site to research campgrounds and RV parks as we have traveled through this life. Am pleased to note we took the plunge, and posted a couple reviews as well. Very fulfilling to be part of this body of work.
And on that note:
Happy New Year everyone. Hope to see you camping in 2013!

I never make reservations anywhere that I do not read the reviews on here first. I rarely stay anywhere that lacks reviews or has multiple bad reviews from reviewers who are well into the double-digits.

This site is really our only source to find a place to park,also. A few years ago, though, we were in an area where no campgrounds had been reviewed here. We thought that if everybody who uses this site only stayed at reviewed parks, we would never see new ones. So at least a couple times per year we try to stay in an unreviewed place so that we can add to the listings.

I do a couple of small commercial websites and business Facebook sites. My wife runs a small in home business. We have learned, painfully so, that one cannot please everyone all of the time despite our absolute best effort to do so. We bend over backwards for those that have legitimate concerns. But, it's a fact that there are just plain grumpy people out there that would complain if you gave them everything free and served it on a silver platter. Which by the way, this website is free to use. I suspect that 99.9% of the reviewers are pleased with the service that this site provides. For the other .1% perhaps an occasional chill pill would do no harm.

I am new to this website but really like any site with campground reviews. I was going to post on a couple of places we have stayed but according to the rules I am not allowed to post a review on any campground. The reason is I have worked at a campground, Glacier National Park, as a campground host and the rules you must agree to when posting a review is that you have NEVER WORKED AT ANY CAMPGROUND!!! This is completely wrong. I agree that I should not be allowed to post a review at any campgrounds that I have worked at but I should be allowed to post on other campgrounds we stay at when traveling. I feel like this is not right just because I worked at one, my opinion should still count on other campgrounds.

FWIW, I never noticed that the "affirmation" was stated in such a blanket manner until you pointed it out and I'm pretty sure that the intent of whoever wrote it was to assure that reviewers didn't have any relationships with the CG's they were reviewing. I have been a work-kamper and yet I write reviews and I'm sure that is true of many other folks who are members and contribute. We welcome you to the site and encourage you to post reviews.

Um..... I think you can't post on a campground you are currently employed at. But any others you can post a review on..... But it might be a different story for a campground OWNER.

I have gotten advice from 2 so called senior members that say I can review campgrounds that I have been to but evidently they don't read the rules. Here is the quote that you must agree to before posting.
" I hereby state that I have read and will abide by the instructions listed above when writing my review. I am not currently nor have I ever been the owner, a relative of the owner, or an employee of this or any other RV park or campground. Furthermore I do not currently have nor have I ever had any affiliation with this or any other RV park or campground. I also give my permission for RV Park Reviews and/or campground Reviews to log my IP address when submitting this review. "
The statement above is very explicit as far as who can post. Not only does it exempt me from reviewing because I was a work camper but also about 13 years ago I owned a small campground and that also makes me ineligible to post reviews. Someone needs to tell the owners of the website how many people they are stopping from posting. And also anyone that falls into any of those categories and still post could be legally liable for anything they post. Evidently very few people read the rules they agree to when they check the little box to post.

I think you will now find that this statement has been reworded to more accurately reflect its intent.

Back to the part of this thread that discussed the need to moderate the incoming reviews. I recently read a review of the Ameristar Vickburg (MS) RV Park. Except for calling the park "rundown" and not getting a 50Amp site until they threatened to leave, the reviewer said little about the RV park. In fact, they actually wrote "I guess my rating is based not so much on the park as on Vicksburg itself". That's just wrong.
