To me, an "RV Park" is privately owned while a "campground" is public, be it a city, county, state, or federal campground.

While there are some RV parks that have a 10-year rule and there are some RV parks that are quite expensive, not all RV parks labeled "resort" cost $70 per night nor are they restricted just to motorhomes. We've stayed in many RV Parks that have the word "Resort" in them and we've never come close to paying $70 per night (nor would we), and we happen to have a fifth wheel.

Maybe 20 years ago or so the RV park was a fancy name to attract people to a "campground" and a couple of people got slick by adding certain amenities like pools and spas to charge more money. I think both terms mean the same thing. I mean think about it, what's the differene of an apartment and a condominium? Nothing. hehehe...

Normally, except for some areas on the East coast If you rent, it's an apartment, if you buy it it's a condo.

Obviously, there's a big difference of opinion st what is a CG, and what is a park. Generally, in our humble opinion, a CG is a less formal spot primarily suited for overnighters, or places that offer adjoining recreational opportunities - and often have FEW facilities as to TV, power, and possibly, even water - some of those are referred to as "Wilderness" CG's, and usually managed by the state or federal offices.

"Parks", generally are more formal and refined - have full hookups and other bells and whistles - lodges, swimming pools and hot tubs - and the list goes on - spaces are usually well landscaped, and usually roads are well paved, and rig spaces perhaps concreted and fully leveled - cable/satellite tv is quite common.

A CG in our part of the country - eastern Oregon - looks like this:




Parks, well let your imagination run free!

Who cares what the label on the place is. I don't go by that, rather I read the description and if it is where I want to be, has the features that I want, and costs what I feel it is worth, I will give it a try.

It can be called "Sleazy Sam's Trailer Haven" or "Royal Regal Motor Coach Resort"; if it matches the above criteria, I will be happy.

BTW, I try to rate the places we stay at in WWW.RVPARKREVIEWS.COM as accurately as possible.

YMMV
