In defense of the check in person, I've seen numerous times where the person checking in didn't have his driver license with him, or his dogs rabies certificate with him or a copy of his reservation # to make it easier for the clerk to look up his reservation. So sometimes these check-in issues are SELF INDUCED!

RV park 'check in' process !!

I am fairly patient with others, and others sometimes need to be patient with me... As I grow older, I get a bit slower...

Sometimes I wait at the reservation area for others checking in, sometimes they wait for me...

I am taking a job as a Camp Host this winter, I bet I will not be as fast as the Camp Host that I replace that has been doing the job for months... When the next Camp Host replaces me, it is likely they will be slower than me after I have been doing the job for months...

I wait for someone in front of me at a dump station, sometimes I wait for someone maneuvering their coach into a back in spot that blocks my road ahead... At times, others are waiting for me to do the same things...

I wait in line behind other folks at the post office to mail a package, and others wait for me when I am ahead of them...

I wait in line at the grossers behind others checking out, not to talk about at Costco or Wal-Mart, and other times people are waiting in line for me to get done....

I get more patient with others, as I realize that I need them to be patient with me at times...

For some, life sucks, then you die.... For others, life is not too bad when you consider the alternative....

Can you say "Type A personality"? I bet the OP was the guy that cut me off at the fuel pump.

I always try and pay cash at the CG. At one CG, I was given a card to register which was more like a home loan app. I filled out my name, address, and license. The girl said she needs my credit card info, phone #, nearest relative, etc. My money was on the counter, so I picked it up and started to leave. She called her Mom from the back room. Her Mom told her to take the money, and give me a site #, then turned around and went back in the back room. It was a nice CG.

You can give them anything for stuff like phone number, nearest relative, etc. They have no way of verifying that info.

I personally have not come across anything unreasonable in this area. Unfortunately, there is a need to train others due to the high turnover rate.

What really bothers me is the early check-in time issue. Sometimes it is difficult to gauge when you will arrive at an RV park. Nothing bothers me more when the RV park has a set check-in time, you show up early, and they want to charge you for the additional hour or two (early check-in fee) even though the site is vacant.

The OP has a point . A campground is a business . I take notice when the campground is run well and efficiently , right from reservation to check-in to the maintenance crew. These campgrounds do get my repeat business as much as possible .

Best check-in experience (with a reservation) was being met by the office staff as we pulled in, no need to even exit the coach. They handed us a packet of info thru the passengers window, park map on top with site# and directions to get there marked clearly. Stilled wowed by that one.

Worst check-in experience (with a reservation) was trying to find the office, office staff otherwise engaged behind the counter once we found it. Had to repeat all the info the got from us when we made the reservation, then it was pick your site but no map to show you how to get there and the sites were not in the same place as the office.... Jeez

Best checki-n (with paid reservation), a sign on the guard shack that said something like;

There is no Camp Host on duty at this time, we only accept pre paid reservations, if you have reserved a sight, go to your sight and enjoy your stay.

I never saw a Camp Host the entire time I was there... In fact, I liked the place so much I went on-line and extended my stay...

Worst check-in... I can't think of one, because if I am checkin in, I am going to be camping, and I love to be checking in to enjoy my time camping...

If the campground is a franchise or club park they have set info they need as per their contracts. KOA, Encore, Thousand Trails and on and on. Mom & Pops take the plate number, name and rig type and then the money. Love the M&P parks.

As easy as it would be to make some rude remarks here, (which is my first thought), I will take a different path.

One where we all try and remember we started a new job at some point in our life also. We were not born with one, that's for sure.
Remember just how nervous you were, how you WANTED to do well, but really had no idea what the heck it was you supposed to do, and how the heck to do it.

I try and remember that when EVER I see someone learning.
First I tell them how happy they got a job, and I am more then willing to be patient. I WANT them to learn what it is they are supposed to be doing, and I for one do not want to be anything but pleasant.

I will say that if at the end of the day, I am so stressed that something as simple as checking in can spin me out like that, just because someone is new, Maybe I am more disappointed that this "traveling thing" I thought was going to be fun and relaxing, just isnt working for me like I see for others.

Maybe that's it......
