Ashland Resort receives an “A” grade in the third annual consumer satisfaction survey of independent, privately-owned parks

Ashland, West Virginia, February 2, 2011 – Ashland Resort was one of only 33 campgrounds, RV parks and resorts across the country to earn an all around “A” grade in the third annual GuestRated™ satisfaction survey of independent parks.

This 76-site ATV park, located on State Route 17 at Ashland, received an “A” grade in overall guest satisfaction for the year 2010. Ashland Resort, an ATV campground [www.atvresort.com] imbedded in Hatfield-McCoy’s Indian Ridge Trail System, provides direct trail access. Guided by a mission of creating the ultimate camping experience, manager David Teasdale stated, “We were completely surprised by this high award. In fact, we weren’t even aware that it existed. We are just completing our first year with GuestReviews™. Awesome!”

The top-rated parks were announced at the Rio All Suites Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas during a Dec. 3rd awards ceremony hosted by the National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds.

More than 30,000 camping and RV enthusiasts completed reviews in the GuestRated.com online survey, grading their experiences at 2,400 independent RV parks and campgrounds.

“Twenty-two of this year’s top parks also received ‘A’ ratings last year, and thirteen parks have now received ‘A’ ratings three years in a row,” said Bob MacKinnon, president and founder of GuestRated.com.

MacKinnon suggests that campers visit the “Best Rated Parks” page at www.guestrated.com to see where each of the award-winning parks is located and view their individual web pages.

Camping enthusiasts are also encouraged to submit their own reviews of the campgrounds and RV resorts they have recently visited by going to www.guestrated.com and clicking on the “Rate a Park” tab. Each park receiving reviews displays a GuestRated™ Report Card showing the current year’s ratings based upon online feedback from their campers.

As camper interest grows in online ratings, GuestRated.com expects to receive reviews for a total of 4,000 parks by the end of 2011. That will be nearly half of the nation’s private parks.

The GuestRated national online survey program was launched in February 2008 in collaboration with the National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds.
