Buttonwood Campground Awarded Large Park of the Year
at 2011 National ARVC Conference
ARVC 2011 Park of the Year

The National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds (ARVC) recognizes the achievements of private parks during its annual industry awards competition. The 2011 awards ceremony was held on Friday, December 2, 2011 at ARVC’s annual Outdoor Hospitality Convention & Expo, which took place at the Westin Savannah Golf Resort & Spa in Savannah, Georgia. The highest honors, called the “Park of the Year” awards, are given to only four RV parks and resorts from across the country. These awards are based on several criteria, including customer service, employee training, operational excellence, national directory ratings and community service. Buttonwood Campground was the recipient of the Large Park of the Year award at this ceremony.

Buttonwood Campground is  "A" rated in the GuestRated consumer satisfaction survey.

Buttonwood Campground Receives an “A” Grade
for the Fourth Consecutive Year in Annual Consumer Satisfaction Survey
of Independent, Privately-Owned Parks

Buttonwood Campground was one of 44 campgrounds, RV parks and resorts across the country to earn an all around “A” grade in the fourth annual GuestRated™ satisfaction survey of independent parks. Buttonwood Campground is one of only twelve parks to have won this award four years in a row.

This 260-site park received an “A” grade in overall guest satisfaction for the year 2011. The top-rated parks were announced at the Westin Savannah Harbor Resort & Spa during a December 2nd 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 3,000 independent RV parks and campgrounds. “Consistently earning an overall ‘A’ grade from guests is difficult, and our 44 winners this year represent less than 2% of all of the nation’s campgrounds.” said Bob MacKinnon, President and CEO of GuestRated.com, the Murrieta, Calif.-based company that conducted the online survey on behalf of the National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds.
