Wow - talk about looking for the silver lining....what happened was that we called and RESERVED a full hookup, pull-thru, 50A site. We ALWAYS ask for 50A since we have a 40' MH with W/D, DW, Fireplace, and residential refer. The host acknowledged our reservation, then escorted us to a site and left. When I went to plug in, I realized that the 50A plug had been removed and a cover placed over it. When I questioned the host, he replied "all of the 50A wiring is burned out". I told him I saw other sites with 50A plugs uncovered, he restated "sorry, all the wiring is burned out". A few hours later I watched as three motor homes pulled in, plugged into the 50A, and had no problem. And I asked them. I would have confronted the host after that, but once the police arrived, he and the rest of the residents formed a chain-smoking group of gossiping observers that I wasn't interested in approaching.
Oh sure, the whole thing could have been a misunderstanding and after my review the park residents rallied around the owner with new enthusiasm since they'd never had a review before. But if you believe that you probably believe in the tooth fairy. Are you serious? Or do you just enjoy being contentious in defiance of the truth?
I wasn't questioning the accuracy of your review, though you have now added a lot of details that weren't given in the review. In the review you simply stated they said the 50 amp was not working. Given that limited information, it would be reasonable to assume it got fixed. With the added information you just provided it does appear they placed you in a site without a working 50 amp service yet did have other working sites in the park. Did they overbook their 50 amp sites, it sure appears so. For that, they deserve a bad review, but that doesn't mean they do it with every reservation they take. They may have, in fact, just plain overbooked the 50 amp sites and were too chicken#$@% to just plain admit it.
I will still stick with my opinion that the police activity probably has nothing to do with the park and is most likely an experience others will never have. As for the posts that praised the park, I again will point out your review is the ONLY truly negative review for the park, and it has dozens of reviews, made both before and after your review. If a park gets good reviews before a bad review was posted and good reviews after a bad review was posted and doesn't have a large number of bad reviews most people, me included, just disregard that bad review. And yes, some people will post a review, even if they ordinarily don't, to either drive home a negative experience (how many bad reviews do we see here with only one or two other reviews ever posted by that reviewer) or right a perceived wrong, which could easily be the case with the reviews posted shortly after yours appeared.
