As the Great Yogi Berra said, “Internet reviews are 80% bull and the other half’s made up.”

Simple. It is unlawful in most places to be in possession of an unregistered firearm unless you hold a Concealed Pistol License. If you don't have said license or similar in your jurisdiction then you call the police and give it to them. He'll find it a lot harder to get ir from the cops when he was a fool than from you... and if the Sheriff in your jurisdiction is anti gun he may never see it again.

As a CPL holder I'm all for the latter...

I thumbed through the recent reviews at campgroundreviews.com and noticed that several of the 1 star reviews were pretty dang petty. One was upset because they left their handgun in a cabin when they checked out and the park owner wasn't thrilled to have an unattended, loaded, firearm laying around. The poster went on to rant about they had a concealed carry permit and how the park's website didn't put they prohibited firearms in bold print, instead it was but one of a number of rules on their rule page. I don't know what having a carry permit has to do with leaving a weapon laying around since by definition it isn't being carried, but what do I know.
In another review, the reviewer was upset because they were asked to move their car off the grass. The reviewer went so far as to claim they measured how much they were on the grass and that amount was one inch. They neglected to post how much on the grass they felt was OK. Both of those parks otherwise had consistent excellent reviews. Is it just me or does it feel like people are becoming more self centered on a daily basis.


Yeah some come into a campground with a chip on their shoulders, some just don't have the experience, some come to realize that camping/Rving is not for everyone and take it out on the campground or maybe a combination of everything. I've noticed more times than not the fringe type reviews have few reviews online with little info on the profiles, When researching campgrounds I just ignore those reviews.

My favorite review. Company had 9 "customer" reviews. Stupidly, they used their real names in the reviews. 8 of the reviews worked for the company, who published the list of their 15(?) employees

What I find most interesting is how one review complains how there were no level sites, but the other 25 make no mention of that, same thing with dust, low trees and other items. As previously mentioned, I think there is a segment of society who is miserable and they do their best to spread misery. Overall, I blame social media, as people have gotten used to saying anything with impunity.

Complaints about sand at coastal parks. Complaints about bugs. Complaints about wild life.

Sounds like a lot of people would be better off in a hotel.

Those review sites are a total waste of my time. We go to North Beach Resort a lot - which is on the beach, and people complain about the sand getting in their camper, or the sand in general. Why spend minutes/hours of your life that you won't get back reading that?


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

I agree with these posts. The thing I have to admit is that I usually read the one star reviews first. It's like I want to hear the BS, even though I know better.


Same here. Its human nature! Thats why tabloid news is so popular.
