I have been browsing a lot of websites researching CGs to add to my possibles list for an upcoming trip. I have not been impressed with some of them. Does anyone else have an issue with websites that make you spend time searching for the fundamentals that are needed to make a decision to stay at the CG?

Small town municipal campground websites are the worst. It appears that they don't have anyone who could recognize an RV much less provide information about their facilities and amenities.

Perhaps someone would be kind enough to explain to me why there would not be something as basic as an address and phone number on the Home page of any campground website. And, how hard is it to do a Google Map search of one's GPS coordinates and put that on the website? Don't most of the majority of all RVers use GPS to find a CG?

Then there are those CGs that don't have a website. I am wondering if anyone would choose to stay at one of those? Not spending a couple bucks a month on a basic website gives me a first impression that it isn't going to be a highly rated park.

I am thinking WalMart parking lots for my trip. At least we all know what to expect from those.

It's the nature of the beast. Most municipalities or cities may use a webpage on their main website for their campgrounds. The trick is to find just where that webpage is. It's not always easy! Now I am sure they are not all like that, but too many are. I have been to a few of these campgrounds and besides the lack of information on them on the internet, a lot of them have the strangest setups. I remember one where I had to cross a ditch to connect to the power from another site and I was thinking that the city engineering department didn't give much thought to that one. It's much the same with the websites. It just takes more time to dig for the information. Hope you find something better than Walmart. smile.gif
