I read the comments for clues. A perfect campground for our family may be a horrible campground for someone else.
One campground in particular had a bad review, and the camper didn’t like the strict rule enforcement and the “jerk” that made him park in the front after exceeding the 10 mph speed limit once.
I booked that place and stayed twice. Clean. Well-kept, albeit old. Safe for my kids. Quiet. Friendly. Owner was very nice and took pride in the place. We would stay again.

X2. Also, you have to watch the posting date of the review. Often they are a year or more old. A place can be much different if new managers or owners have come in since then.

Like others have stated, check most recent reviews and check more than Good Sam snd RV park reviews. Also check RVParky.com and Yelp and even hotel travel sites.

I usually leave only positive reviews on RVParky, if the campground is deserving. If I find a campground has some negative reviews that I disagree with I will state so in my review.

I think I have left only one or two negative reviews and that was only because the campground was a real dump.

Good Sam seems to be OK. But all reviews are kinda like personal ads - you have to read between the lines most of the time. Some people have an axe to grind and just cannot be pleased or leave a bad review because of something outside the campground's control.

I agree. They seem to be more relevant and honest. If I see a 5 star review followed by a 1 star, I look over the bulk of the other reviews. If the average is 3-4, then I take it the one star folks just had a bad experience. Same is true for me avoiding some campgrounds when I read the majority of reviews ranking at 1-2 or so.

The only negative review I ever wrote was for some jackass up in Missouri who refused to refund my full payment over 7 months in advance. I made the reservation and the very next day we changed plans (different route) and I called, less than 24 hours passing and they guy told me "too bad". They had high demand and he wouldn't refund anything from a 4 night stay. I advised if I cancelled, he would be able to let someone else book if he was in such high demand.

Ended up disputing it with Visa and got my money back. Taught me to always read reviews ahead of time. Turns out, he had quite a few 1 star reviews with nearly identical stories.

I won't repeat what others have said other than to add to the recommendation to take reviews with a grain of salt. Our favorite "regular" CG has a rating of 8.8 on rvparkreviews.

The few bad reviews? Things like "No cable or TV reception". Hmm... How is this the fault of the CG? Maybe that's because you stayed in a place that's in a little valley, heavily wooded, and 60 miles from the nearest TV station. Oh, and no cable company available anywhere in the small town nearby.

Some people get upset when they stay somewhere that allows campfires, but they don't like the smoke. Some don't like noisy kids on a summer afternoon.

Reviews are wonderful however when reading them I check how old they are AND if you click on a persons name you can see all the reviews that person has written. I found one person complained a lot so I took their review with a grain of salt

We normally review the selected campground found on numerous websites on Google Maps, sattelite view, to eyeball the park conditions. This has saved us several times from going into questionable grounds.
