I do. I regularly write for RV Park Reviews (now Campground Reviews) and even stopped at stayed at a campground because there were no recent reviews. I contribute a review every time we use RV Parky, and do restaurant reviews for Trip Advisor. When I buy fuel, I always report prices to Gas Buddy. This is all so easy to do, and I appreciate the reviews that others contribute.

We find that around one out of every three hundred or so unique guests post a review anywhere (Rvparkreviews, Google, Trip advisor, Rvparky, Allstays and Yelp are pretty much all I consider when I say anywhere). And that assumes that each reviewer only posts on one site. Since some people post on multiple sites the actual number is probably closer to one in 500.

I regularly contribute here, Google, Yahoo, Yelp, Amazon, GasBuddy, and a few others.

I have to say though, that I usually read reviews with a grain of salt. Especially the highly charged ones, both positive and negative. IMO, reading reviews is like evaluating bid proposals. Throw out the high and the low, then, reality usually exists somewhere in between.

So many times I visit places which I really enjoy, . . . . . regularly, then read a lot of total trash reviews about them. I guess Mary Hartman was right. You have to go with yourself wherever you go. How you think/act often dictates how you are treated, . . . . . which defines/justifies your experience.

I try to contribute to Campgroundreviews, not as often as I should, but I do contribute. Another site I add my reviews on is thedyrt.com. I have found that it has helped many times.

If I had an unusually bad or good experience I do.

For a typical uneventful stay I usually do not.

That's OK, I'm glad you did and that more people can see it.


I see your screen name pop up now and then on several different places.

Hi Caveman,

I started out with a list complied by Moving Sue. but it was name and gps only. So I searched out what ever details I could find.

I'm glad you did not mind.
