To Camp Ground owners-

This is a general comment to ANY camp ground owners visiting this site: Marketing hint- As a prospective customer, I want to see pictures of your campsites and a few of the facilities and landscape. I really do not care about fish caught, halloween parties, or kids riding their bikes in the road. As a matter of fact, if you don't show me pictures of the campsites, you MUST have something to hide!

Agree. A couple of the places we frequent post pics of each site, including several of the CA State parks. If a budget strapped State can figure that out, then so should others.

google Earth works great, and you can see every site and access to each.

Have you seen campsitephotos.com? It is no substitute for good photos provided by the owner, but I have found it useful.

This may be a bit off topic, but do campgrounds offer a "Quiet Section"?


I got so turned off by campfire singing to midnight. Followed by pre-teen whining at 7:00AM.


A place for us middle-aged empty-nesters that settle down just after sunset, go to sleep around 10:00PM and don't get moving until close to 9:00 the next morning.

Google Earth is the Crystal Ball that sees campgrounds for what they really are...I love looing at a campground website, then going to Google Earth to see how different it is.

I'm with you, where is the no outside television or radio blasting section. We go camping to get away from it all, some of these people bring it all with them.

Photos of how far apart the sights are would be nice.

Another plug for Google Map/Earth. Some public campgrounds even have google streets. I've picked many, many sites this way.

I totally agree! I've been doing research for campgrounds on the upcoming vacation and there were several campground websites that fit to a Tee whet you said. I WANT TO SEE WHAT YOUR CAMPSITES LOOK LIKE - THAT'S WHY i AM LOOKING AT YOUR CAMPGROUND!

Sorry for the rant.
