North America's Favorite 100 Parks

Ventura, CA. (December 7, 2011)— Woodall’s Publications, publisher of the comprehensive Woodall’s Campground Directory, has released its list of North America’s top 100 favorite campgrounds based on the nationwide voting. The announcement and release of the top parks came at the close of Woodall’s “Vote for Your Favorite Campground” Sweepstakes where guests could vote via website or text messages for their preferred RV Parks or campgrounds. To celebrate its 75th anniversary Woodall’s Publications wanted to discover the best places to camp across North America, so it took that question to its readers by running the “Vote for Your Favorite Campground” Sweepstakes. Every time campers voted for their favorite park, whether though the website or by text, they were entered in a drawing to win a 7 night cruise to the Hawaiian Islands. The park or campground that received the most votes by the end of the contest also received an all expenses-paid cruise to Hawaii. The Sweepstakes ran for ten months and was sponsored by trusted names in the Industry like Evergreen USA, CAVCO, Utility Supply Group, and Athens Homes. The response was overwhelming as the votes flooded in from RVers and Campers who wanted to highlight their favorite campgrounds. There were over 7,000 RV Parks that received votes during the search. Out of those 7,000 entries, Woodall’s compiled a list of the Top 100 Parks and Campgrounds in North America, based on the number of votes received. The Top 100 RV Parks, as voted by RVers, were (in alphabetical order): Adventure Bound Camping Resort at Eagles Peak Allatoona Landing Marine Resort & Campground Asheville-Bear Creek RV Park Astoria-Warrenton-Seaside-KOA Bay Hide Away RV & Camping Resort Big Bear Shores RV Resort & Marina Big Meadow Family Campground Big Oaks Family Campground Big Sur Campground & Cabins Bluewater Key RV Resort Bodega Bay RV Park Boyd's Key West Campground Butterfield RV Resort Camp Florida Resort CAMP GULF Camp Overflow Campground & Marina Campland on the Bay Candy Hill Campground Cannon Falls Campground Canyon Motel & RV Park Captain Carl's Famous Buck Lake Ranch Castaways RV Resort & Campground Cedar Cove Resort Cherokee Park Campground Cherry Hill Park Cloverleaf Forest RV Resort Cottonwood RV LLC Country RV Village Cross Creek Camping Resort Cross Creek Country Club & RV Resort Crossville KOA Campground Danforth Bay Camping & RV Resort Debonair Campground (Not Visited) Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground Durango RV Resort Eastern Long Island Kampground Evergreen Campsites & Resort Fernwood Resort Campground Frontier Town Campground Garden of the Gods Campground Ginnie Springs Outdoors LLC Golden Isles RV Park Golden Nugget RV Park Goodland Country Club & Spa Grand Sierra Resort Casino & RV Park Great Smoky Jellystone Park Camp Resort Greer's Pine Shadows Hart Ranch RV Resort Holiday Park Campground Holiday Trav-L-Park Resort For Campers Indian Ridge Campground KOA-Dayton Tall Timbers Resort KOA-Flagstaff-Grand Canyon KOA-Williamsburg La Hacienda RV Resort Lagoons RV Resort Lake George RV Park Lake Lanier Islands Campground Lake Rudolph Campground & RV Resort Lake Travis RV Park LakeView RV Resort LEI-TI Campground Lo Lo Mai Springs Miami Everglades Campground Mission Bay RV Resort Misty River Cabins & RV Resort, LLC NASCAR RV Resorts at Grand Haven Nashville's Jellystone Park Normandy Farms Family Camping Resort Ocean Lakes Family Campground O'Connell's Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park Camp-Resort Orlando/Lake Whippoorwill KOA Campground Palace Campground Pensacola Beach RV Resort (Tiki House RV Park) Pete's Retreat Family Campground & RV Park Pismo Coast Village RV Resort Ponderosa Travel Trailer Park Pontchartrain Landing Queen Mine RV Park Rafter J Bar Ranch Camping Resort Scuffletown USA Campground Shady Pines Carefree RV Resort Silver Valley Campsites Spring Creek Village RV Park Squaw Rock Resort State Fair of West Virginia Campground Stone Mountain Family Campground Sunshine Key Resort Taneycomo Lakefront Resort/RV Park The Bluffs RV Resort The Wilderness at Silver Dollar City Turtle Beach Campground at Turtle Beach Park Victorian Acres RV Park and Campground Waldens Creek Campground Walnut Acres Campground Western Village RV Park, Inc.

Bay Hide Away RV & Camping Resort won a 7-night, all expense paid cruise to Hawaii, courtesy of Woodall’s and its sponsors. Michele Richards, owner of Bay Hide Away RV & Camping Resort, said the response to the sweepstakes from her guests was tremendous. “Our regular campers told me that they were going to vote for us everyday” said Richards, “but we even had new guests who told me that they had a great experience at the park, and they were going to vote for us based on their stay.” Woodall’s Vote for Your Favorite Campground Sweepstakes became an excellent “comment card”, Richards noted. “We appreciate the satisfied guests who helped us win.”
