The Campground and RV Park Review feature on GoodSamClub.com allows members to write about their camping experiences. Clear and specific customer reviews will help everyone in the Good Sam community make better, more informed choices about where they will stay on their journey.
So what makes a campground review helpful? We've compiled a list of four guidelines for writing a review that is useful to the other members of the Good Sam community.
Give readers as much relevant information as possible. The time of year can have a huge impact on your experience, especially if you were vacationing during a holiday weekend. What kind of site did you have—a pull-thru or a back-in? Were you near the playground or pool? Did you travel with kids? We recommend that you write your review within 6 months of your visit. All of these details will help another member connect with your experience and determine if the campground is right for them.
It is okay to write criticisms about an RV park, but make sure they are constructive and will help other members make important decisions about their travels. Don't just suggest that a campground isn't "pet-friendly." Give specific details about why you felt the park was not a good fit for someone traveling with pets. Make sure you describe how the management dealt with your concerns. Always give a campground the chance to correct a situation before complaining about it online.
Be Respectful of Privacy Concerns
Please don't mention proper names when using the review feature. It is important to respect individuals' privacy concerns, and you can communicate all necessary information using general titles such as manager, owner, camp employees or guests. Please note: Individual disputes should not be addressed in your review.
Acknowledge the Good Guys
Don't just use the review feature to complain about bad camping experience. Use this as an opportunity to share outstanding campground stays as well. Did you find a campground with huge, private sites? A beautiful pool? Easy access to nearby attractions? Log on to Good Sam and rave about all your amazing experiences.
By following these guidelines, you can help other members find the best location for their next RV getaway. And the best part is you will also benefit from all the campground information provided by others. It is a win-win!
