Fifth Wheel Mountain Camping cartoonFourty-two campgrounds, RV parks and resorts earned all around “A” grades in the fourth annual consumer satisfaction survey of campgrounds, RV parks and resorts.

The top parks were announced Friday during the National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds’ annual Outdoor Hospitality Conference & Expo, which took place at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.

More than 30,000 camping and RV enthusiasts participated in the online survey, which evaluated guest experiences at 3,200 campgrounds, RV parks and resorts that are affiliated with the National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds (ARVC).

“Consistently earning an overall ‘A’ grade from guests is difficult, and our 42 winners this year represent less than 2% of all of the nation’s campgrounds.  But what is even more impressive is that 9 of this year’s winners have also received this award for five years in a row,” said Bob MacKinnon, president and CEO of, the Murrieta, Calif.-based company that conducted the online survey on behalf of ARVC.

“Consumers should take the time to check out the ratings that are posted for each campground on because it is the quickest way to tell which parks are best meeting – and exceeding – guest expectations,” said Paul Bambei, ARVC’s president and CEO.

The 42 parks earning “A” grades this year are listed below.  They include:

  • Ashland Resort, Northfork, W.V., a three-time “A” grade winner,
  • Cross Creek Camping Resort, Delaware, Ohio, a two-time “A” grade winner,
  • D & W Lake Camping and RV Park, Champaign, Ill., a three-time “A” grade winner,
  • Far Horizons 49er Village RV Resort, Plymouth, Calif., a first-time “A” grade winner,
  • Kalyumet Camping & Cabins, Lucinda, Penn., a two-time “A” grade winner,
  • Meadowcliff Lodge & RV Resort, Coleville, Calif., a four-time “A” grade winner,
  • Misty River Cabins & RV Resort, Walland, Tenn., a five-time “A” grade winner,
  • Ocean Lakes Family Campground, Myrtle Beach, S.C., a five-time “A” grade winner,
  • The Springs at Borrego RV Resort and Golf Course, Borrego Springs, Calif., a three-time “A” grade winner,

The national online survey program was launched in

February 2008 in collaboration with ARVC.

Consumers are invited to submit their own reviews of campgrounds and RV resorts they have recently visited by finding the park’s page on and clicking on the “Reviews” tab.  Previous guests’ comments and ratings are posted on this park’s page along with a review submission form.
