    MattB,

    The post from Webmaster that you have quoted is from many years ago, and there have been several revisions to this guideline since then until we finally did away with it completely quite some time ago. We now consider first time reviews for posting without requiring a second one to be submitted.

    Also there have been several discussions about removing older reviews, but members say they like to see how well a park has performed over the years as it sets a pattern of service which they can reasonably anticipate will continue. However, I understand how old reviews can clutter up the listings, so what I would like to see is that reviews older than 5 years be removed from the initial display but have a button that users can click on that will reopen them. This way older reviews are still available for those who want to see them, but only more current reviews will be displayed automatically.

    Edit: I have just seen where you posted in other threads about eliminating older reviews. It really is not good forum etiquette to post the same message in multiple threads. However, in your other messages you suggested using a different color for older reviews to indicate their age which is a good suggestion. Maybe our website developers will consider doing that. Thanks for all you suggestions.

    This makes sense, maybe add a 25 (pick a number) review minimum before this function is enabled/showed? This way Rv parks with fewer reviews will just show all the reviews up front, might make more sense.

    I just noticed that River Ridge campround in Georgia has changed their name to
    SPREWELL BLUFF PARK, GA

    Please correct your records.

    Thanks!

    Thank you for contacting us about this park. However, all I have been able to come up with is that River Ridge Campground is the name of the campground located within the Sprewell Bluff Park. I do not find where the name of the campground has been changed. Therefore, would you please tell us where you saw the name change that you have reported. Or if anyone else is familiar with this area and can help clarify this information, please also reply to this message. Thanks.

    With all due respect, if you Google Sprewell Bluff Park the first listed response is to the Reserve America webpage where reservations can be made. The listing is clearly for a CG with the 6 RV sites that are noted in the RVPR listing for River Ridge.

    OTOH if you Google River Ridge CG you don't get any hits in GA so the CG doesn't appear to be known by this label.

    Furthermore, if you follow the RVPR link to the park's website you get a "page not found" on the Upson County GA website.

    My speculation is that at one time Upson County handled reservations for this CG directly but have elected to use ReserveAmerica to avoid the hassle.

    I'm not sure where you found the name of this CG, but I would think the logical thing to do would be to rename the RVPR listing for the park since that's the name used for reservations.

    I know the listing has an incorrect website link, and I intend to fix it, but I looked at the same website that NYDutch cited (https://www.upsoncountyga.org/199/Sprewell-Bluff-Park), and that is what led me to believe the campground still goes by the name River Ridge. Here are some quotes from that website:

    "Sprewell Bluff Park's River Ridge Campground offers Cabins, RV/Tent sites, and a Bathhouse."

    "River Ridge Campground - Book your Cabin or RV/Tent site here"


    "Make a reservation for a Cabin or RV/ Tent Site in the River Ridge Campground or Book a Pavilion"

    Even the Google map displayed on the website shows the location of River Ridge Campground and labels it as such.

    I agree that since Reserve America lists it as Sprewell Bluff Park, that wording should be in the name, but OTOH since the park's website still identifies it as River Ridge, I think that name needs to be retained also. So I suggest: Sprewell Bluff Park, River Ridge Campground which is no different than how we list other large parks that have campgrounds with different names.

    I have no issue with this approach.

    I think this is all fixed now.
