I have read on other websites that Social Knowledge now owns RV Park Reviews. Is there any truth to this?

Yes, RV Park Reviews has been acquired by Social Knowledge. I was in touch with the previous owners for many years expressing my desire to include RV Park Reviews in our network of RV forum communities. The stars finally lined up last year and we became the proud new stewards of such a wonderful resource.

We've been working on building a new back end system (database) that will allow us to build some new features in the future. We are 1,000% aware that most people don't like change and are making every effort to leave buttons and navigational bits in close to the same places. We would much rather an evolution of the site (ie. something very similar with slight changes) not a revolution (ie. something totally new).

Here you can see an example of the individual campground page:

Currently the navigation is Country >> State >> City and we plan to leave that but also add in ways to see results based on your driving route (ie. all parks within 10 miles of I-35 between Austin and Dallas) and also parks near attractions since many people might want to go somewhere specific but no know what cities are nearby.

We plan to setup a section in the forum to discuss these changes and solicit input from the community. We are looking forward to helping make an already wonderful resource even better!
