dry.gif dry.gif After having posted my displeasure with the campgrounds in New York State, and or the Northeast the subject has me thinking of a way in which the situation could be corrected. I have to believe that some sort of "standards" or "requirements" should be implemented. Now the question is,"who or whom do you give the power to enforce those standards ? Or is the system so large that operating standards could not be enforced. The system at present, with the camping industry policing their own, is not working. (namely Good Sam, KOA, Trailer Life, campground owners assn. etc, etc). mad.gif mad.gif The situation at present has some boycotting the area by not returning after having been ripped off for whatever the reason. During July '05 we personally were involved in a unpleasant camping experience in New York at the "Thousand Islands " area where the owner was operating a campground under false pretenses. Charging for services, but not providing the advertised services. The Northeast has some very interesting areas to visit. New York alone has a park in the Adirondack Mts of over 6.2 million acres, a for ever wild park. We use it quite frequently, but We also go to the state of Maine every summer or fall for a month, and have for the last fifteen years. Would enjoy reading suggestions and or opinions from other RVers on this subject.

thanks, safe travels

Thanks Cheryl,

They were awe inspiring and certainly appropriate for Thanksgiving!

The Virginia eastern shore is truly wonderful place to camp and the walks along the beach at that time of the year were very peaceful.

There were only 6 campsites occupied out of 100 and we all were spread out so it was like having the camp to ourselves.

We are looking forward to our trip to YNP/ GTNP in May!
