Bad Campground Behaviors?

What campground behaviors really get on your nerves?

I'm relatively new to RV camping and can't really tell if something that gets me mad is just normal campground-ery or if it is something I should contact the front desk about.

Spent about 3 hours this weekend trying to get my cat out of a tree after she got chased by two un-leashed dogs. Ended up taking the holy-family's name in vain as I threatened the owner from across the campground after one charged my daughter. Front desk of the campground resolved the problem quickly.

You did good. If/when myself/wife or other family member were to be threatened/attacked by any type of animal, the appropriate response would be completed in its entirety.

That is WAY out of line in any campground we stay at....

Our dog is on leash at ALL times...
and even though he can 'take care of himself against ALL comers" we would feel bad about hurting their dog if he charged Beaux... and wouldn't want Beaux to get hurt by a lucky bite either...

now in all fairness - your cat was running loose ?!?

I am allergic to cats

I am not easily fazed, but there is one thing that will get to me:

People who decide to go outside their RV and play their choice of music so loud that it can be heard by everybody within 100 yards. I find this extremely inconsiderate.

Other than that I am normally easy going

If campers followed the published rules of the camp, there would be no problems. Beavis and Butthead do make occasional appearances however.

If there are drunks, loud parties, loose or barking dogs, I came to the wrong campground.

I use rvparkreviews.com. Has not failed me in my 4 years of using it.

Cat got let out by the 1 year old getting a Thomas the Train. I'm sure she learned her lesson up on that branch for about 50 hours.

Pretty harsh punishment for a one year old I wonder if one of those let the dogs out too.

My biggest two gripes are probably unleashed dogs and people who take short cuts through my campsite.

I'm a dog lover, I have one.. What irks me is owners who do not take responsibility for their pet. Not carrying a plastic bag to clean up their dog's cr@p. That's right up there with bicyclists who don't heed the rules of the road. And, yes, I'm a cyclist.

Cats.. yah, I agree. Tell me why do dogs have to be licensed and on a leash and cat's get off free? Life isn't fair.. but, no one ever said it was.

Not going to get too much into the loose "animal" thing,,, but we do NOT ever open the door unless our 'kids' are on leash. To the original question, I guess our biggest complaint is humans not picking up after their animals, be it large or small, cat/dog, doesn't matter... Some people think because the poo is small(er) , it doesn't matter... Well it does... My two cents worth....

Well it is not like cats kill small animals and birds, or go and sit in a tree for like 50 hours.....


Some years ago..... tent camping years ago.... we left a campground because my dog whined just about all night and I did not feel I had the right to make everyone listen to that a second night (tried everything the first night).....
WOW, am I out of touch for today...

The one that bugs us is people who take shortcuts through our campsite. It feels like a stranger is walking through our living room.
