Learning to pick a campground
Making a reservation is a big deal. If I mess up the reservation we lose money & time. If I don’t make a reservation sometimes an excellent place with a view or a campground next to something we like is gone.
I use my day planner, computer, written maps & word of mouth to find a good campground. The highlights places are our membership parks.
RV Park Reviews has saved me from a mistake a few times. Knowing what other campers think of a campground is valuable to me.
I try not to get too excited about staying somewhere. If I make a emotional decision instead of a logical decision (all the facts) we could end up in a place like in the 1972 Bert Reynolds movie Deliverance.
I try to ask question before I leap into a reservation. I ask things like:
- Are pets allowed?
- hook-ups or no hook-ups
- Is the pool heated? Spa?
- can you email me the reservation?
- dump station available?
Everyone has different question to ask before making a reservation. I’m learning to ask questions?
