My family and I were wrongly discriminated by Westport Camping Grounds due to the fact that we have children. I made reservations to stay here for a month with my family and when my husband went down to pay was told by the owner we could not stay there. I called and spoke with him and he gave me every excuse in the book...First he said that it would get to cold to camp with children in a tent and that though kids can stay it's more of an adult park and if they get bored he doesn't want them screaming around other people. Then he told me well if you buy a pop up then you can stay. Lastly he then tells me because we have no car that Westport by-law states you can't camp without a car. I checked in with the Westport town hall and there is no such by-law in Westport. I will be reporting this to the better business bureau. I will also be posting on all social media about how wrongly we were treated. I loved camping as a kid with my family and my husband and I love nature...We were really looking forward to spending this summer camping with our girls to share with them how rewarding and peaceful it is to get back to nature as god intended. I am beyond hurt with this situation and was even more dissapointed when we had to tell the kids no camping this year. It shouldn't matter how we camp tent or trailer and it should not matter how long we choose to camp as long as we follow the rules of the campground and pay the money to stay there.
