Well its finally happened to me. I have reservation since Dec for a campground in Wisconsin for over the 4th, site had to be paid in full on the date the reservation was made. That was not really a big deal. Well just this week received an email with a required signature. This waiver was releasing the park from "any" responsibility due to injury of any kind while at the park. It covered walking and falling, playground equipment related injury. The list goes on.
I just wanted you all to know if you are planning a trip to Kieler Wisconsin, I would think twice about staying at Rustic Barn Campground.

It amazes me how some people blame the campground for this type of waiver. When they should be blaming the people that will file a lawsuit against a campground because they were not supervising their own children on the playground and little Johnny fell while going up the sliding board the wrong way.

This is America in 2020. No one is responsible for their actions, it's always the fault of someone else.

Likely as not you have signed similar when checking into an RV park and did not read all the fine print.

So the guy working on your roof falls off and want's to sue your homeowners policy for his injuries - you avoid this by making sure he has the correct credentials and insurance since why would you want to pay for this?

Campground is doing the same thing - not sure why it is an imposition to sign it. Would you sue the CG if you got hurt there? Or would your insurance cover it?


Experience without good judgment is worthless; good judgment without experience is still good judgment!

I guess you wouldn’t mind if the roofer changed the type of shingles after you had signed a contract with him.

If the OP hadn’t paid in full and created a contract with the park I would agree, but they are changing the contract after the fact. This assumes there is no fine print on the reservation form saying you will be asked to sign a release.
