Remember, all ratings and information in Trailer Life campground book is bought and paid for. There is NO inspection for the ratings nor is there any verification of whatever the CG owners puts in the write up. We worked as camp host for a few years and saw this happen more than once.

Wow, are you sure about this? I always thought that the descriptions might have been supplied by the owners, but the ratings were assigned by independent teams that actually visited and evaluated the campgrounds!
Yes, twice we watched the "evaluator" come to the campground, set in the office, have a cup of coffee, collect his check along with the owners written description and then leave. Not one minute was spent out in the campground evaluating anything, nothing, nada.....One TL rating, bought and paid for.

Must be that some people believe what they read in advertisement. Did it have a video of the owner's lips moving to the text wording? That would explain it all!

There's also a very nice Outdoor Wold IN Williamsburg that now allows a limited number of public reservations without being hassled to join or having to sit through a siminar or anything.

Also, Jellystone Gloucester Point, another fine campground that's actually on the water, is much closer to Willamsburg and Yorktown than HTP is.

I do not want to start an argument, and I don't believe everything I see in print, but I do have a friend who owns an RV park and he swears he pays nothing for his listing and that he gets a full inspection every year. He says there is a fee for having an ad in the directory. TL is pretty stupid if they put this statement on their website, if in fact, it is not true.

Q. I am a Trailer Life Directory member, and I need to update my listing on the web site. How do I do that?
A. Trailer Life Directory representatives pay an annual visit to the parks and businesses listed in the Directory and website. They will be happy to update your information at that time. In the meantime, you can contact your representative at (800) 685-6246.

Q. How much does it cost to be listed?
A. There is no charge to be listed in the Directory or website, however, parks must meet minimum rating standards and criteria
