If you want to be absolutely sure, take a voltmeter and measure it, testing each leg against the other two. You should get 120V from hot to both neutral and ground, and nothing from ground to neutral.
Here's my No~Shock~Zone article about how to measure an outlet BEFORE plugging in your RV. RV Electrical Safety: Part III – Outlets | No~Shock~Zone

And here's a video I made on how to test a campground pedestal for proper voltage and grounding.
