I have emailed the site administrator about the myriad problems with the new web site. I find it largely unusable the way it is now. I've contributed 237 reviews and have always relied on the site when planning trips. I miss it. [emoticon]

Strongly agree with many of the comments. The new site is a ABSOLUTE disaster. Have tried probably half a dozen times and have given up. Loading times and navigation are terrible..

The new site works just fine for me. It's just different. Not hard to get around at all. Loads just fine for me.

It's certainly more graphical than it used to be. Try clearing your browser cache if it's not loading at a reasonable speed. Also try a different browser. Don't bother with Edge. Edge sucks.

The new Recreation.Gov site bothers me FAR more than the new Campground Reviews site, I absolutely hate it, like garmp said, it was like a comfy old pair of shoes, the new Rec.gov site is not comfy, and just doesn't fit at all. [emoticon]


Right you are!!!!!!!!!!!

That Recreation.Gov site is a disaster. Obviously their site programmer(s) are rejects from the real tech companies. Besides that, do the programmers ever hold user-group meetings for inputs BEFORE they make "improvements"?? [emoticon]

Recreation.Gov IS the pits. They managed to take a good site down to a virtually unusable quagmire. Unfortunately it is the only game in town for COE parks.

I find the new RVPR a bit clunky to use but nothing to have a hissy fit over.

When I used to travel full time, I liked to read park reviews before heading to the next place. I forget which website I used, but I've learned that some poor reviews didn't necessarily mean a bad RV park. What may have been lacking for one reviewer didn't necessarily mean it would matter to someone else.

I agree with everyone that they have ruined a great site. Used to be a user friendly site and now is difficult to use. Have sent emails to them.
