So, this thread has a lot to do about choosing the right CG. Right?

Other than that, for the most part, it is about behaviors that we cannot change. Right?

Essentially, yes

Although campground populations change regularly, if you find a campground or RV park where they enforce the rules you find most important, then you're more likely to have the surroundings to your liking.

And people are people, so you either withdraw from society altogether (if that's even possible these days) or learn to deal with the occasional annoyance. However, the Internet gives people the chance to focus on what drives them up the wall, and therefore make whatever that is even more annoying to them, so I would not expect people to get better in this regard through all this discussion about what they hate

That said, sometimes there is humor to be found in 'conversations' of this type, which is why I'm reading it, but the comments will probably degenerate at some point and then it won't be interesting to me (but it will be more interesting to people who like that sort of thing) so it will continue until the thread gets locked.

After spending far too much time reading this thread and commenting myself the second time, I wonder why some who have posted even leave their house.

You can't change people................You either agree with their ways or you move on and have nothing to do with them.

I've found Karaoke to be more tolerable if the drinks are alcoholic. ha!

Our family has done our family fight er reunion in Penticton BC a number of times and being they always want to attend during Peachfest you have to book your campground early. One year it wasn't a certainty that we would be able to go (back operation recovery) and we didn't book early. Needless to say, after a late 'let's go' decision we were apprehensive when we got to Penticton and started looking for a cancellation or vacancy. After spending most of the day being unsuccessful we ended up at a place that the manager claimed an empty spot if I could back my unit into a spot that was slightly elevated and around a bend I could have it for the week.

The place was a united nations of people. There were kids everywhere and it was noisy with all kinds of music playing from just about every unit. Once we were set up DW and I took our pups for a walk and everywhere we went there were people with dogs, unspeakably some unleashed, and every kid wanted to pet every dog, it was a lot like what we did as kids.

Being we got there just before the evening meal when people started cooking it was like you were at a bazaar in the middle east or somewhere similar. Being gluttons, er connoisseurs of free food we were intrigued with all the different odours. The smells were interesting and inviting and with the music and the kids were were transported to different parts of the world every few steps.

Being on an overcrowded campsite is not one of the favorite things of most campers but we were converted that week. Shy kids coming over to invite us to partake with their families. Strange women in burka like clothing, and bearded gruff sounding men were suddenly just neighbours and their food offerings were beyond our ordinary fair but hot damn was it good. Needless to say at every meal we were there at the site we shared food in a huge pot luck type event with those immediately around us.

The kids were all just kids and noisy like you couldn't believe but it sounded like our childhoods were being revisited. I made friends that week that we still occasionally see on other trips to other places and we still get together and chat and have coffee. So our campsite of desperation turned into a great learning tasting experience for us. We learned something that week that has enabled up to enjoy camping no matter the circumstances, even a week of pouring rain can be a fun camping experience. Too many base their enjoyment on what they want without ever realizing that there is lots out their beyond their wants that can truly become a fun thing to do. YMMV.

Well said!! That is what RVing and camping are all about. Personally we have met more nice folks than bad. People will be people and kids will be kids and we have to accept them the way they are or move on. So far we have never had to move on.

So true. Our home is one of the few who has any lawn at all, the others all went 'native'...which means expensive rock lawns and desert landscaping. The local kids play on the lawn all the time. They are also good at picking up trash that blows into the yard and makes our home look occupied when we are away.

This is a new experience we enjoy, since our street was empty from foreclosures for several years, family's are starting to move back in.

Bad campers? No such thing.

There are naughties that sometimes come to campgrounds.

We see naughties very little. When we see them, we find ways to avoid them, ignor them, but never publicly abhor them; tis counter productive to confront.

Going to bed early with a white-noise fan works pretty good.

When you are going, it's a lot about knowing where you are going.

Just sayin......
