As an example of a wide rating's range in a CG's rating, just look at my 2 different reviews of Logan/Hocking Hills KOA, OH. When we 1st stayed there, we had a really great experience so I gave it a 9. This past summer, the electrical issues that plagued, not only us but at least a dozen others in the CG the entire weekend, ruined our stay...hence the newer, 4, rating. They still had all the same ammenities as the 1st time around, but I felt the electrical problems, which could've been very damaging to RV electrical systems/appliances that weekend, warranted a severe lower number rating to serve as warning to others who might be considering camping there when it's hot, humid & the CG is full of big rigs.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

I read the reviews rather than pay much attention to the ratings. If the review is "too good" or "too bad" then I look at the other reviews and what the reviewer has posted about other places. The reviews for the campground we are in (and have been in, and will be in for a while longer and were in last year for 4 months) do not think that it is a place to stay for more than one night. They have obviously not seen the other "campgrounds" in this town. I have looked at other reviews for campgrounds in NM. The "lack of trees" complaint and "windy & dusty" comments tickle me. That is the description of just about every campground in NM we have seen. Either one or the other... generally both, seems to apply to NM campgrounds. We do not like "resort" campgrounds. I don't do swimming pools (2 near drownings... don't want a third... it might be the last) and we don't have time for organized activities. Allow us with our old RV's, food cart & jeeps on the same fairly level site, good electric hookups, good cable, please let the WI-FI work where we are parked at and decent rates... I'm happy.

Weak Voltage output sure can put a damper on a campgrounds over-all view.

I have stayed at CG's even with brand new electrical service where your lucky to get 108 volts. You have to be sure to run one high wattage item (Micro, Water Heater, Air) at a time while watching your volt meter.

One thing that comes to mind. While down at Myrtle Beach at Myrtle Beach Travel Park last month, where the temp were in the upper 90's. we ran our Air, Water Heater or Micro with never a drop in voltage. Even with the campground packed with nearly 700+ RV's. Man was it hot . Our air conditioner ran for 10 days straight (day and night) The only time I turned it off was to clean the filter for 20 minutes..... Can I say it was hot again....It was HOT HOT....
