Just be sure to read each of the reviews for any given location carefully - people tend to list a lot of aspects of their stay that were unique to their visit (weather, showing up on Memorial Day weekend w/o reservations, etc.) and leave numerical ratings accordingly, so you have to filter a bit. Also, be sure that you are reading the review for the specific park you are considering - in many cases all parks in the area of your search are stacked on the same page, so it can be slightly misleading until you get used to the way reviews for multiple parks are displayed on the same page.
Lastly, we have found that it helps to look for the reviewers vehicle size, or some indication of same in their review - many people will give poor ratings for an otherwise great spot because they could not fit (this is a big issue with National parks, many of which were built long before people started driving motor-suburbs
) and while this does matter to some, it does not necessarily reflect on your own situation, so judge accordingly.
Basically, if you focus on the aspects of each review that means the most to you
and then take the rest with a grain of salt, you'll get a lot better idea of each location than you can get by just looking at the raw number scores.
