    Default 21 campgrounds receive A-rating in national satisfaction survey

    NASHVILLE, Tenn., Nov. 15, 2008 – Twenty one campgrounds and RV resorts have earned all around “A” grades in the nation’s first consumer satisfaction survey of independent parks.

    The top rated parks were announced at the Nashville Convention Center on Saturday during an awards ceremony hosted by the National Association of
    RV Parks and Campgrounds.

    Nearly 13,000 camping and RV enthusiasts participated in the 2008 online satisfaction survey, which evaluated guest experiences at independent campgrounds and RV resorts affiliated with the National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds.

    “Camping and RV enthusiasts didn’t hold back when it came to telling us which parks they liked and which ones needed improvements,” said Bob MacKinnon, president and CEO of, the Murrieta, Calif.-based company that conducted the online survey.

    MacKinnon added that provides guest satisfaction surveys for more than 4,000 parks affiliated with the National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds, or roughly half of the nation’s private parks.

    “The results of these online surveys will go a long way toward helping consumers identify the nation’s finest campgrounds and RV resorts,” MacKinnon
    said, adding, “The surveys are also helping park owners identify and prioritize their improvements, based on their guests’ perceptions.”

    Consumers are invited to submit their own reviews of private campgrounds and RV resorts they have recently visited by logging on to and clicking on the “Review a Park” tab. Survey results for many individual parks are posted on the GoCampingAmerica website.

    The 21 parks earning “A” grades for 2008 include:

    • Acres of Wildlife - Steep Falls, Me.
    • Buttonwood Campground – Mifflintown, Penn.
    • Cherry Hill Park - College Park, Md.
    • Dogwood Acres Campground – Newville, Penn.
    • High Plains Camping – Oakley, Kan.
    • Kozy Rest Kampground – Harrisville, Penn.
    • Lake George RV Park - Lake George, N.Y.
    • Mill Creek Ranch RV & Cottage Resort – Canton, Texas
    • Misty River Cabins & RV Resort – Walland, Tenn.
    • Normandy Farms Family Camping Resort – Foxboro, Mass.
    • Ocean Lakes Family Campground - Myrtle Beach, S.C.
    • Peace Valley Campground – Marble, N.C.
    • Pioneer Campground - Muncy Valley, Penn.
    • Pismo Coast Village RV Resort – Pismo Beach, Calif.

    • Sunny Brook RV Resort - South Haven, Mich.

    The national online survey program was launched on the website in February 2008 in collaboration with the National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds.

    I also see at least 5 others in the list that use Campground Master, so it looks like a smart crowd!

    Congratulations Jimmy!

    Great job.

    Due to recent budget cuts and the rising cost of electricity, gas and oil, as well as current market conditions, the Light at the End of the Tunnel has been turned off.

    Default Who here uses

    We use it because it’s one of the services that we get from ARVC. We are using the free reports. So far we like it LOL!
    I was just wondering what others thought of it? The survey is kind of one size fit all, we did get bad marks on the …..Marina Boat Launch, Mini Golf, Rental Equipment and Transpiration Shuttle.

    So in our defense…. We don’t have a Marina Boat Launch, Mini Golf, Rental Equipment and Transpiration Shuttle. But for free, I don’t think I can get them to change it.

    Have used Guest Reviews for a year with the upgrade that allows us to view each camper's rating, not just summaries. The upgrade also allows responding to individual complaints.

    This system is far more informative than Woodall's or Good Sam because it rates what our campers think of our campground, not how we compare to a Resort or a Snowbird Park (or how big an ad we purchase).

    For an additional upgrade, Guest Reviews can tailor a questionnaire that, if appropriate, does not have marinas, restaurant, etc.
