Reliable reviews

Anybody else wonder about the reviews on Good Sam and others .
How relevant is a review that is more than 2 years old and the fact that one post is 5 stars and the next is 1 star , sometime it seems the folks were at a completely different campgrounds .

Human nature and the present attitude of many is if somethings not perfect or does not meet their expectations, it is no good. I take them with a grain of salt.

Like a lot of reviews, you can't please everyone all the time. We look at a lot of them, and take some with a grain of salt. If there are more good than bad, we'll take a chance. Some are bad, then there's a change of ownership, and they get good again.....or not. Best bet is to ask everyone here.

I agree with the human nature response. Just like the forums, people are often more likely to post when they are upset than when they are happy and move on.

X-2. Saw many bad reviews for what we thought was a good or even great CG. Some get upset when they have to follow the CG rules.

I just read several reviews on RV Park Reviews. The campground reviewed were in different states. Seems like most of the negative reviews happened during the winter (off season?) months. Could be the campground cut back on personnel during the slow months.

24 hours in a day, 24 beers in a case. Coincidence? I think not.

Love and use rvparkreviews.com all the time. You'll find our reviews there under Damon-Becky.
Yes, reviews vary between visitors, sometimes widely. Everybody has bad days. Usually I trust the average, if there have been more than 5 reviews, and read them all. Then click the campground website as well.
Been a good guide for us so far.

I also like rvparkreviews but take the comments with a grain of salt. I like to look over the negative ones and look for common threads and I place less importance on older posts.

Yes. And I have to be careful searching for sites. Checked on Blue Springs Park as original poster mentioned and got a site in Alabama, not Orange Beach. Dissapointing reviews before I noticed I had typed Springs plural instead of Spring singular....
