When i left the park, I left them with a few words of wisdom and promptly went looking for the nearest gas station to purchase beer and wine.

Well Done Sir!!
Thanks, we are going out again with the entire family plus 4 tents on the 4th. Hopefully no issues but this time we are prepared.

Don't feel too bad. I took my trailer to a local shop (run out of a fellow's house in a rural part of town) for a bearing repack; he told me to pull over on the grass in front of his house as his driveway was full up. Big mistake - the yard was waterlogged and I got stuck. I couldn't even get the TV out of the muck after decoupling from the TT. It took his 4WD to pull me free; he had to let the yard dry before he could move the TT. At least you didn't have to wait for that!

One thing I've learned (one of many things you learn) is that the pictures on the campground web site are when the park was new. Be that last year or 20 years ago!

Reading reviews, RV park or otherwise, I always throw out the highest (probably inserted by the park owner) and the lowest (inserted by someone with a permanent burr up there you know what) and go from there. And then hope for the best..........

Without a doubt, RV'ing is a learning experience. Good luck in your future travels.

So sorry to hear of your bad experience Jlouis24. As some have pointed out though it was not pleasant, you will never forget it and you learned some valuable lessons.
I agree that you should have been given a refund.

Hey ... if you ever want to venture over to my little home state of NH, reserve a water front site at Terrace Pines campground in Center Ossipee.
Google satellite makes the water look like mud but I assure you, it is crystal clear because the big lake that feeds into the small one is spring fed.
All the water front sites are pretty level and they are packed sand so you will not have a mud issue.
There are not a huge number of water sites - only about ten I would guess - but each has its own water access where you can park your kayak or canoe. They all have fire rings. They very nice.
The only downside is some can be tricky backing onto if you are inexperienced with backing your camper.
I wish you many happy camping days ahead. I've done it since the early 80's and love it.
Enjoy the journey no matter where it takes you. :-)
Happy trails.

Terrace Pines is on our list for next season we ran out of dates this season.
We went there years ago when the kids were small.
