31 Campgrounds, RV Resorts Get “A” Grades in Consumer Satisfaction Survey

Originally Published in MotorHome Magazine

Thirty-one campgrounds and RV resorts have earned all around “A” grades
in the second annual consumer satisfaction survey of independent parks.

The top parks were announced at the Rosen Centre Hotel in Orlando on
Thursday during an awards ceremony hosted by the National Association of
RV Parks and Campgrounds.

Nearly 17,000 camping and RV enthusiasts participated in the online
survey, which evaluated guest experiences at 1,840 independent
campgrounds and RV resorts affiliated with the National Association of
RV Parks and Campgrounds.

“Sixteen of the nation’s 31 top parks in our survey also received
‘A’ ratings last year, but we also had 15 parks that received ‘A’
ratings for the first time,” said Bob MacKinnon, president and CEO of
GuestRated.com, the Murrieta, Calif.-based company that conducted the
online survey on behalf of the National Association of RV Parks and


MacKinnon said that GuestRated.com provides online survey tools to more
than 3,600 parks that are affiliated with the National Association of RV
Parks and Campgrounds. That’s nearly half of the nation’s private

The results of the surveys are gradually being posted the websites
of state and national campground associations, including
GoCampingAmerica.com, the website of the National Association of RV
Parks and Campgrounds, which uses a 5-point system to indicate each
park’s scores in five critical areas of guest satisfaction.

“The objective of these surveys is to help private campground, RV
park and resort operators to pinpoint the improvements they need to make
to provide their guests with the best possible camping experience,”
said Linda Profaizer, president and CEO of the National Association of
RV Parks and Campgrounds.

Consumers are invited to submit their own reviews of private
campgrounds and RV resorts they have recently visited by logging on to www.gocampingamerica.com and clicking on the “Review a Park” tab. Survey results are currently posted for 265 parks on the GoCampingAmerica Web site.
