Don't show closed campgrounds

While planning a trip in the RV Trip Wizard, I encountered two parks that had been reported permanently closed (several years ago). Is there any way to exclude these campgrounds/parks in the Wizard? I didn't see a way to filter them out.

Adding a way to filter those might be a good idea.

Then RVTW would have to verify the CG really is closed.

I'm Leary of using filters when displaying CG's. Too much chance you'll filter a desirable CG out.

Question

If RVTW is going to put the effort to tag a campground with "Perm Closed" as part of the listing, there should be a filter to let the users decide if they want to see this type of information. I found 2 sites with this "Perm Closed" tag while planning a trip today.

For me, that does not compute. If a "desirable CG" is filtered out, the filtering logic is broken, the user selected the wrong filters or the database contains errors. If looking for commercial CGs why would I want to see all the COE/state/city/etc. or vice versa? Filtering out groups/types/etc. is one of the best features.

Mark, to each his own. When planning I like to stay at public CG's so I filter out all CG's that are not state and federal parks. If there are none available at the location I'm interested in then I remove all filters and review all available CG's in the area I'm interested in. This works well for me.
This way I'm not filtering out a CG that maybe suitable. My feeling is filters are not perfect but I am.

Cool

I think if you find that a CG is permanently closed, you should notify RV Trip Wizard of the status and they will remove the CG from the database. No need for a filter. This is no different than if you happen to find a campground that isn't listed...just report either and it will be taken care of.

Dr Q I agree with you but what seems to
be happening is that RVTW is not removing
them, they are only tagging them as closed.
I am quite sure most people would not even
investigate a campground any farther if it
comes up as permanently closed when you
click on the little tent.
I think RVTW has two options, don’t show
closed campgrounds or add a filter.
