It's always an honor to be recognized by our peers, but receiving top marks from our customers is the greatest complement of all.
Myrtle Beach, SC (PRWEB) December 22, 2012
Ocean Lakes Family Campground, in Myrtle Beach, S.C., has once again received an "A" grade from the fifth annual GuestRated™ satisfaction survey of independent parks. Ocean Lakes was one of only nine that has received this rating every year since the award's inception in 2008. It is also the only one in the Carolinas that has been honored every year for its excellence.
The top rated parks were announced at ARVC's annual Outdoor Hospitality Conference & Expo held earlier this month in Las Vegas. More than 30,000 camping and RV enthusiasts completed reviews in the GuestRated.com online survey, grading their experiences of 3,200 independent RV parks and campgrounds.
“Consistently earning an overall ‘A’ grade from guests is difficult, and our 42 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.
"It's always an honor to be recognized by our peers, but receiving top marks from our customers is the greatest complement of all," said Barb Krumm, Director of Marketing and Public Relations for Ocean Lakes Family Campground. "The GuestRated surveys, based on customer experiences, let us know how we are doing. We take our customers' feedback to heart. Ocean Lakes does not strive to win awards, we strive for excellence in customer service and our overall operation."
