We've only heard one side of the story. From a first time poster here. From a new fiver owner. And no pictures. Is it just possible that the problem with the first site was inexperience with backing? As for the damage, it is your responsibility to not run into things, regardless of who is directing you.
Sorry if that is harsh. I could easily be wrong about the incident, but we are only hearing one side, so who can say?
Was wondering about that myself. I've not seen interior roads in any campground I've been to that are any wider than 10-12 ft, private CG or state park. Would be interesting to learn the outcome of this story.....
I agree with SAR tracker! Never,never ever let someone get you in that situation! Allways do a walkthru before commiting yourself.Granted that the park should have treated you better but, you are responsible for where you take your rig.
Sounds like a situation where the mental size of the trailer and its turning radius is 40% larger than the actual size of the trailer and its turning radius. I'll be interested to see if we hear from anybody else who has been to this campground. I can't find it on google street view or maps. I find its address,but nothing remotely like an rv park is in sight.
I appreciate everyone's comments and suggestions. I completely understand that those are not believing this unfortunate event, but the one thing I am not is a liar. I would never say something bad about a campground, staff, or any person in general if the facts were not true. I know that this will not change your minds and I will not make an attempt to do that. I only wanted to inform that 1) the one comment is probably correct that the parents (meaning me and my wifes) attitudes at this unfortunate event would have been a part of my son being upset, but he also started before any talking with the staff happened. 2) I also have never seen a campground with roads this narrow before, but unfortunately the left side of this campground is that narrow in the areas that they took us. Again, I appreciate everyone's comments, both good and bad. Having camped for 35 years, I love going to new places. I dislike posting bad things about campgrounds, but if you were to read the forums from the seasonal campers at this campground and how they dislike this place, some may understand, to a degree, what occurred. I am not looking for a boycott of the this or any other campground, I was just advising, like I said, so that no one else receives this type of situation. Also, backing was not an issue since I was not able to back into the site. Again, thank you to everyone for your comments and suggestions. I will definitely try some of them.
Whole lot going on here. First and foremost, in my travels I have learned to give anything to do with Morgan Resorts a wide berth. Their parks work for seasonal guests, but their service and attitude towards transient guests is beyond terrible.
As for the problems encountered, some are truly the fault of the park, some are the fault of the OP and some are both sides problems. The OP was upset that someone wasn't in the office when he arrived. Big deal, they came a few minutes later, most parks are small businesses where everyone needs to wear a lot of hats. As for the escort being inexperienced, it really doesn't take years of training to follow the roads. I doubt the park was like a major league baseball team where it had professional closers waiting in the wings for the time when the starter employee struggles. Where the park's employee let the OP down was not stopping them when it was apparent the trees were not properly trimmed to allow that size rig pass (assuming there was actually tree damage, not just a leaf or two brushing against the rig). Ultimately, it is the responsibility of the driver to prevent damage to their vehicles. If it was too tight, he should have stopped. As for the disagreement with the manager, I would bet it was not a civil conversation and by walking away the manager doesn't escalate a bad situation. I am not sure what could have been gained by both parties standing there arguing. I am a little curious why the 20 year full time season guest who was a friend of the OP didn't check out what the park had planned for his friend. We have people joining other people all the time and the people that are already here almost always want to know where their friends will be and generally mention they are checking it out to be sure they will be happy. Sounds like everyone dropped the ball here.
