Something seems a bit strange...

I've written several reviews recently and nothing's been published or kicked back.
In a past life I was a copy editor for USA Today. I can write as appropriate.
I've written reviews, positive in fact, but I tend to be thorough and wordy; I don't write five-line "sound bites." Do they need help dealing with more and longer sentences? I volunteer!
I have written about parks that are not on the list; apparently they're not interested. Shame.

Are you a first time reviewer there? They require a minimum of 3 posts before they're published.

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

A couple of things to consider . . .

One, if you are reviewing a park not currently in their database, it takes a bit longer for them to process it. I think they attempt to validate, locate, etc. Not sure how long since you've submitted.

Two, and this is just my opinion, I tend to skip over long reviews. I'm usually not looking to do anything but stay a day or two or three. If the review is very long, I'm not going to read it. It seems to me the most objective reviews, those which help me decide if I want to stay there, are the ones that just get to the point.

John, last year I posted a thread on this site regarding the same issue. Lori is correct. According to a couple of replies I received last year, they are some how trying to eliminate the "not so honest" CG owners from posting a positive review of their own CG... And conversely a negative review of a neighboring CG...

To my knowledge, the people running the site are RVers themselves. It is possible to take several days before a review goes on, depending on how many reviews come in and how busy their life is outside the site, whether they're wintering somewhere with good internet, etc.

I've submitted more than three reviews, and the first was submitted November 30. I suppose they're just too long.

Honestly, I just don't bother with that site anymore. I look at the age of the reviews and I see they are at least a year if not more than 2 years old.

They've got a Contact Us link on their page. If you feel you've met the reviews number quota & you believe it has been sufficient enough time for your reviews to have been posted, then why not contact them?

I use the site frequently and find it very useful. It is actually more accurate than any of the guides you can use. To be safe, we check out the guides and rvparkreviews and have yet to get a bum steer.

When I post, my review is listed within a day or two. I get an email notice and can then check it out.

I have used the site extensively and found it very helpful. Additionally, I have submitted several reviews and none have been rejected and they are posted in less than a week. Just the facts madam just the facts.

I have used the site for the last 3-4 years and find it Very helpful and accurate for the most part. I have submitted a few reviews but as stated, you must submit 3 or more before they are accepted. This prevents (or at least helps to prevent) owners or friends from submitting false reviews.

We use it all the time. I have many reviews to post but just can't find the time to do so. Feel bad cause I know the vast majority of RV enthusiast rely on the current, updated data.

I rely on rvparkreviews.com quite a bit; over the years I've confirmed it's saved us from too-small campgrounds or dumps. That's why I want to contribute to it. No communication, no reply, nada.
