'm I the only one not happy with the new RV Park Reviews web site. They made an easy web
site hard to use and find out what info you were looking for

I like the free app; Park Advisor if you have a smart phone. It's not so much a review but it tells you the ammenities, relative cost and lots of info. Most campgrounds have reviews by users and that helps.

Totally agree with you! Used to use it all the time but they really broke it a couple years ago.

Yeah, it is a bit more of a pain to use, but still has tons of excellent information, even if it is more of a hassle to get to. More useful than lots of others.

There's an old adage: "If it ain't broke, don't fix it!". There's another one I really like: "Just because you can doesn't mean you should!"
Took a highly useful, user friendly site that did just about what most of us wanted and needed and made it so much "better" it's almost useless! Just finished trying to find CGs around Stuart Florida - the old maps were very easy to use - the "old way" always gave me the info I needed, literally at my fingertips, to do what I needed to do. I was so frustrated just now I almost deleted the site!

I recall using the old site, before it was purchased by Campground Reviews or RV Life, to get a list of all the campgrounds at a given distance from the town or city you enter in the search (e.g., within 20 miles of Salina, Kansas). You could choose various distances for the radius of the search. You can kind of do that now, or use the map, but not as easily. If I remember properly, you could also put other criteria on your search (full hookups, 50-amp service, etc.).

Use it all the time and don't have any problem. If site is currently being revised and improved, that would be the problem. Give them a few days.

The site is very useful to me, but the only regret I have is their search engine/ability. Example being: I read on a forum about a great park, especially a COE park, and then try to search for it. The forum calls it XYZ Campground. RV park reviews does not recognize that. Try XYZ COE, maybe not again. Then try XYZ Park and if that don't work just try XYZ. Sometimes is listed as something totally different.
But still all in all a really worth while site.
