Woodall���s rates all private campgrounds on two scales, facilities and recreation. Each campground receives 1W through 5W rating for facilities and 1W through 5W rating for recreation with 5W as the highest rating.
The 5W/5W rating reflects an investment in the development of parks, personnel, recreation programs and superior maintenance of a park���s facilities and recreation. ���The 5W/5W campgrounds are typically the most developed parks in our directory,��� said Joe Daquino, vice president and group publisher for the Affinity Group. ���However, most of the other 8,000 campgrounds are also well worth a visit. Woodall���s rating system gives the consumer an independent means to gauge their expectations when they choose a campsite.���
