The 2009 Trailer Life RV Parks, Campgrounds and Services Directory awards two Good Sam parks – Evergreen Park RV Resort in Mt. Eaton, Ohio, and Rayford Crossing RV Resort in The Woodlands, Texas, – with a coveted perfect score of 30 out of 30 points under its RV park and campground rating system.
The directory is the official directory of the Good Sam Club, the world’s largest RV owners’ organization with more than 1 million member families. With nearly 12,000 RV parks listed, it is the primary source to identify all Good Sam discount locations.
Each park is inspected and rated based on completeness of facilities, cleanliness of restrooms, visual appeal and environmental quality to provide RVers with a basis for selecting the campground that best meets their needs.
“The 2009 Trailer Life Directory offers travelers invaluable insight into North America’s best campgrounds and RV parks that will make vacation planning that much easier in the upcoming year,” said Joe Daquino, senior vice president and group publisher, Affinity, the parent company of Trailer Life publications. “In light of the current economic climate, travelers are looking for the best value out of their vacations in 2009. A Trailer Life Directory rating of 30 out of 30 essentially equates to a five-star hotel, so visitors who travel to our top-rated parks can expect to have a superior camping experience across the board.”
Texas led the way with 18 of the top-rated parks, followed by California with 16 and Oregon with 10. Quebec led the Canadian provinces with five.
This year, 19 Good Sam Parks earned a near-perfect score of 29.5 or 29 total points, with the following 136 Good Sam Parks earning 27.5 points or above:
