BUT, please remember when posting negative comments, to do it reporter style...."Just the facts." What one may dislike about a a place, another may be looking for. One may like the hundreds of activities for children where another would prefer there be no children around. There are several opportunities to qualify your judgement, just remember that someone else may be looking for exactly what the CG has - although probably not "the tree", the dusty road, the pile of autos, etc... I currently own and use three different CG Guides - Frommers, Woodall's and Trailer Life. I find all three useful and helpful. I also check out the REVIEWS here on the forums. I can't think of anything worse than booking nights at a terrible CG and both my wife and I worry about that until we arrive at an unknown location. We learned that you CANNOT believe photos - one in Ohio shows hundreds of swimmers sitting on the grassy hillside by the lake and all kinds of entertaining activities for the children by the lake. The place has well over three hundred sites with a fire circle, picnic table and full hook ups. BUT, what they don't tell you is they also have over 300 full time campers!!! It is really a trailer park filled with unmoveable trailers that have been there for years. It was awful! Fortunately, we were just driving through when we found it - and we've marked it with a red marker in all our books as they do advertise a lot! All I'm suggesting is that when reviewing, keep in mind that what you dislike about a CG may be what someone else is looking for - quiet, solitude, overgrowth, etc. Thank you.

This is an old thread, but I thought I'd check Woodall's...Jason Place is listed there and it has 2 diamonds for facilities and 3 diamonds for recreation...not the most flattering report...but neither does it leave a "don't go there" feeling...they list a lot of amenities, too...and there's no hint that it is not be the best place to camp.... Too bad there are no personal reviews. I can't find it in Trailer Life Directory...

Rebel, any photos to give us an idea of what you were dealing with? A picture is worth a thousand words, they say...

If you Google the place you'll see some reviews. I saw 5 bad and only one good in a few minutes of searching.
