Better Off Boondocking
Summer is RV season, and if you're on the road or in a pinch, you might reserve an RV campground spot without doing much more than a quick website scan. Some camps, however, prove that due diligence is absolutely necessary. Some are overcrowded, old, and dilapidated. Others are noisy, run by lackluster management, or rankled by shoddy facilities or faulty equipment. Cheapism developed a list of RV resorts and campgrounds you'd likely be wise to avoid this summer. Using reviews from TripAdvisor, we chose sites across America that have accumulated at least 15 reviews but maintain an overall rating of fewer than three stars out of five. While it's good to keep an open mind — some camps may have worked hard to improve or recently changed management — these are the places that online reviewers advise you avoid.
