I once highlighted the topic in the cg rules, walked right up to the offenders TT like I worked their, taped the pamphlet to their door. No other problems. Later saw the man outside and struck up a TT conversation. They were newbies and he had many questions. We had rving school over the next few days. I learned some stuff too.

X2 ... I have paid for my campsite .... It is for my exclusive use ... I view it the same way as a hotel room.

I think most of the time issues can be resolved easily with a polite conversation. Not sure why people are so afraid to talk to people. No reason to make up excuses or explain myself. Its just plain etiquette. I give everyone the benefit of the doubt and assume they just don't know. We love to bring friends camping with us and those that have never gone just don't know. We have encountered people who set up camp on the wrong side of their drive cause they were in a tent. We backed in and they were under our awning. I felt bad that they had to move their whole campsite and offered to help them. But they were fine realized it was their mistake and their first time camping.
The only way it would be a problem for me was if it continued after explaining proper camping etiquette to them. That requires a trip to the office. Never had to do that yet.

I had the problem once. Waited till dusk, then lowered the awning so the arms are pretty close to the ground. You all know how much fun it is to run your forehead into an awning arm. That was the end of shortcut ting.

Find a reason to walk through theirs. Also, those big water blasters work in training both kids and adults.

There's one thing I have not seen on this thread yet, and that is you have a legal right to exclusive use of the campsite. You are renting that piece of property for your own use and people "cutting through" are in effect trespassing.

Of course I'm not saying people should be posting signs up and chasing off anyone who comes near. Just saying that you do have rights concerning your campsite.

BTW, here's an interesting piece of news that comes close to the point: http://www.oregonlive.com/pacific-no...ls_rented.html

Another thing not mentioned on this thread . . . . having someone walk through your campsite isn't a capital crime. I know . . . perhaps annoying, but from my perspective not as much as someone's dog poop.

Politely ask them to not walk thru your camp site, that normally works. Especially if you are drinking blue Gatorade out of a 409 bottle.

x2. Just a simple polite request. Usually works.

I would simply ask them to stop and go around. Now if it happens again I stop them and ask for $5.00 it a toll charge for cutting through. That will usually stop them but one thing is you have to say something. They will not learn if someone does not step up.

Good point!! I have been inside - looks out and sure enough - neighbor with their dog doing it's business in our picnic table area and no bag. They had just arrived, so we hadn't had time to have ticked them off or deserve it.

This summer - had some neighbors that would wait until we went in after morning coffee (etc) to pull their Harley's out of the toy hauler and drive them through our camp to the road. Went an looked on their side - they had rug out and chairs everywhere - so rather than move them - they road through our site. I told the host - who wanted to see them do it before saying anything to them. Tracks in the grass weren't enough. Guess some of us have a sign on our foreheads.

We will stop either the kids or adults and explain that we paid for this piece of property for the night/week/or month. They need to go around our campsite. It is true that it is almost always in the rules from the campground or park, but it is never enforced.

We are currently in a park with lots of sites and the majority of the RVers walk through the empty sites. To me it is a sign of laziness and very disrespectful.
