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.

Speaking of websites....... a few years ago we were looking into a new RV park that we had heard about and tried to look up their website. When we entered _______ ________ RV Park, we were taken to an EXTREMELY graphic porn site (I'm talking about wanting to wash your eyes out with toilet cleaner.....) We were able to find their phone number and called them. When we mentioned the porn site, they said yeah, they knew about it. Unfortunately they had not secured their website before they incorporated and opened the park and a local person who made it his business to hijack websites registered under the park name first and was asking big money to give up the site. These were very religious people and they were humiliated about it. Luckily, they managed to get the site back but I never did find out how much money they had to pay or if they got it back some other way.
