Yeah RVParkReviews seems pretty reliable, but it's just not that well populated. Many parks don't have any recent reviews, like within the last three years, and most don't have more than a handful of reviews.

I read between the lines when reviewing sites, judging what the persons priorities are, as you say. And I know that a lot of reviewers only post when they are angry. I'm guilty of that. I really should contribute more as I rely on these websites.

The park I cancelled was Kaweah Park Resort up in Three Rivers just outside the Sequoias. You are camped right next to the river in the foothills to the Sierra Nevada. It's beautiful country and the river is amazing. I found this site when we tent camped and the tent sites are literally on the riverbank. The RV sites are set back a bit and packed in like sardines, so not nearly as appealing.

Anyway I cancelled and rebooked at a nice tame gramma and grampa resort closer to us where it will be 25 degrees cooler. Almost twice the price but happy to pay it to keep the riff raff out. Flying Flags in Buellton. Much better reviews and looks great, if a bit sanitized, not at all roughing it. But there's the Solvang Vintage Motorcycle Museum, Goleta Beach, Firestone Walker Brewery and wine tasting all within fifteen minutes of the park. So now I feel much more comfortable about having a great first weekend away.

Cheers
Adam

Sorry, guys, we can't commit to any activities yet. Trailer goes in the shop Monday & hoping to get it back by the wknd. I know it's bad timing, but we have a 6 day trip to Ives Run coming up the following Thursday. The condenser isn't working on AC. Chris & I can live without it, but the dogs can not. If I want to leave the furkids in the trailer while we are biking or kayaking, it has to be cool so they don't die of heatstroke.

How about a float on Thursday or Friday so we don't have to fight the weekend crowd? and then another on Saturday?

I started in a coleman Columbia as well.  It worked good for DW and I.....I don't think Nathan even saw that one.  I know I camped with my nephew Evan in it when he was like 4 in the pouring rain.

Also, there is a local Sr Center doing Chicken BBQ at lunch time Saturday.  $8 for half a chicken, roll, applesauce, and coleslaw.  I can reserve ahead and pay the day of.  Dad said he could pick up.  Who wants some?
