Re: How reliable are campground reviews? 
Like what everyone else said, campground reviews are meant to be taken with a grain of salt. Yes, there are a lot of different fake reviews out there. Often, I would find a couple of campgrounds from these reviews and then ask friends and in forums to get a more objective opinion.

Re: How reliable are campground reviews? 
Unfortunately many of the reviews are done by campground owners. They will tend to write glowing reviews of their own GC and bad reviews of their competitors, Sites like RVParkreviews.com have enough reviews that you can throw out the anomalies and go with the bulk of them.

Re: How reliable are campground reviews? 
Quite right, Lindsay. CG owners are quite aware that people go to review sites and forums to find some campgrounds to stay at on their next trip. Of course, the more positive reviews, the more likely that the people will go for this campground. It's really wise to pay a bit more attention on the differences of the review ratings posted. If the difference is too far, meaning that there are a few that say it's really terrible, and then one suddenly gives all praises, best be cautious.

It's amazing on how some campground owners would go through so much length to promote and try to convince people to stay in their campgrounds.

Re: How reliable are campground reviews? 
I completely agree. Instead of wasting their time with posting those bogus reviews, they should be out there making sure that their campground and facilities are properly maintained, and those camping there are treated well. Perhaps then they wouldn't have to resort to such drastic measures.
