I have been posting reviews on Campground Reviews for many years but lately I have been frustrated by the lack of a good filters for features like Big Rig Friendly, Sewer, etc on that website. I have been patiently waiting for them to resolve the search feature for several years now since they "improved" their website, but I have started to use RVParky much more frequently because the filters and maps are so much more helpful. It does seem like Campground Reviews has more reviews so I'll flip back to that after I find some campgrounds of interest.

So my question to those of you who POST reviews, not just read them, where do you post your reviews? One or the other, or both or somewhere else? Thank you for your time.

I have used Campground reviews for years and continue to do so. I'm puzzled by some of your comment, sewers are addressed below the main comment section. They don't have a Big Rig section but the do have a site type section in the same area as the sewers. Pull Thru, back in ect and sort of address the site length in that same area as well. I don't have a big class A so I'm not as sensitive to that issue.

Their search capability isn't so good and actually seems to be worse than it was in the old format. So they really need to work on that.

Isn't RVParky a pay site. I have continued with CGRev for that very reason rather than a pay site like All Stays. While I'm all for capitalism, I resist working for free on a non-free site.

As you say, the information regarding Sewer, Big Rig, etc is available on the website but only after you look at the individual campgrounds; you can't search and only see those campgrounds that fit your search criteria. I am able to use RVParky with my laptop without a charge.

I continue to use Campground Reviews, the now more commercialized version of the old RV Park Reviews site. I am comfortable with their rating system, realizing that different people have different standards in their expectations for an RV Park.
I have noticed they seem to have less features in their search functions, as others have noted. I swear I could used to call up all the RV parks within a specified number of miles from a given city or town. Feel free to correct me if I am wrong, but I don't seem to be able to call that up any more.

Do you use campground reviews to just READ reviews or do you also POST on campground reviews?

I use Campground reviews as it has the most campgrounds. I do post reviews about 20% of the time.

I try to post reviews of all places that we've stayed. I probably put up 10 or so this season. Excluding boondocking sites.

Primarily POST reviews at campgroundreviews.com, formerly RVParkReviews.com. Have posted there for a while now, and just recently returned from a vacation trip where I've posted reviews. I also post on Google and sometimes on TripAdvisor.com.

And a special shout out to the KOA in Anderson/Muncie IN.
