There are some local tax laws that usually apply to 55+ places. Most of the parks we've been to allow a certain number of underage people in their park. Some of this is tied to not having children who need to be in schools. It really varies across the country. Often has to o with property taxes for schools.

Just like a Restaurant. Some people think it's cute to have their children raise hell. Even some Restaurants are giving discounts to people with well mannered children !
It's been my experience that ill (or no) mannered pets owned by 'seniors' outnumber misbehaved children about 4 to 1 or better.

The DW & I just got back from a month in Florida, we stayed at some AAA parks, and some not so fancy, public and private both.

We encounter 2 misbehaved children in the entire time, but several misbehaved dogs at EVERY place we stayed.

It seems that after raising children folks just don't care to take the time to 'raise' their pets properly.

I'll take the sound of kids playing over a toy poodle's non-stop yapping every day of the week!

to be fair, it's not only seniors with their dogs, it's all irresponsible dogs owners who think its cute when fido is misbehaving

To be clear, we do not travel when the children are out of school on vacation , therefor we never experience unruly children.
As for stupid pet owners that don't pick up after their pet or allow the pet bark or howl constantly , I find that returning the turd to the rightful owner can be very effective in re shaping their thinking. As for barking, I will ask them very nicely to quiet their critter, the first time. The second time is at the top of my lungs, which I find has proven to be an effective method to drive home the fact that dear fluffy is annoying me!!!!!!! SMILE

Back on topic....
55+ means 55 or over. But all of such places I have been to have not asked, and many there are obviously not so.
It is a dont ask, dont tell, unless you are wrinkle free, I guess.
My kids have been there, my grands come for the day.

Now as for myself I have no problems if I run into some sweet young thing under 55 in a bikini at the pool but I suppose rules are rules.

Recently, as I was having a casual conversation my neighbor's wife I noticed she was upset. She explained that she was upset because even though she was 58 years old she had been turned down for a membership into a local 55+ exclusive community organization. When I explained to her that the 55+ for that organization probably referred to IQ and not age she seemed to become quite perplexed but content.........Her husband even called me later to thank me for explaining it to her.......I didn't have the heart to go any further with him......and my DW is still on the floor rolling in laughter.

Have to agree here. We encounter noisy dogs, dogs running loose, owners who let them loose so they don't have to clean up after them, etc., MUCH MORE than we have issues with noisy kids. We bring our dog camping but never let him loose and never leave him alone in the RV to bark all day.

One reason we don't have to deal with noises kid is that we travel when they are in school.

Oopps I hit the wrong button. The self correct feature makes it sound like I just got off the boat!
To finish my point, we keep the summer months for the working folks and those with kids. FORTUNATELY we are retired so we can do that. Spring and fall is our travel time !
