Peoples perceptions and reaction are always different and constantly changing. What I might perceive as 'outta hand' or 'one step away from lethal force' might, and wont, be the same as anyone's else's..

Agreed there are 2 side to the story, but that second side will not be the whole story also. Who is right? The one that most closely matches MY perception..

I check reviews of campgrounds to see what people say about the facilities. Personal comments against campground owners I take with a grain of salt because I am only hearing one side of the story.

Boycott if you want but is that really fair?
That is because regardless of someone breaking your campground rules, you do not yell and wag your finger in their face as a way to address the issue. Never. Ever. Just as you don't just go up and punch someone out for doing something wrong in your campground.
Both are bullying tactics.

Kind of hard to foresee all behaviors that could be very annoying to me or others and post them in the rules....

I personally enjoy a "Carol Burnett" Tarzan yell/yodel, but would be pretty annoyed if she did it non stop, while circling on a scooter, even if it was that amazing woman herself....:

Aha. I'll delete my last post then...no reply?

12:55 pm and no reply yet. I would give them a few days. Not everyone has the time to email everyday. I'm only on today (during the day) because I'm a little under the weather.

Legally licensed or not, he was on PRIVATE PROPERTY...hence forth the owner of said property can allow or disallow the use of the scooter.

But guy's, isn't one of the reasons we own a condo on wheels is to leave places we find objectionable? That could be bugs, weather, certain campground "cultures" etc. Do you really want to have an altercation? Why not just pull the jack's and head for more welcome area's? I've left and forfeited 5 day's of paid camping fee's once but at least I enjoyed the remainder elsewhere.

FWIW I sent the park an email yesterday regarding scooters and golf carts in the park. Here is the response I just received from Tina Johnson.

Motorized scooters and golf carts are allowed but must operated by a person with a driver's license and show proof of insurance.
Speed limit is 10 miles per hour....and they must stay on the roads and not cut through campsites. Speed limit is strictly enforced

NEVER had a problem before rode past ALL of the staff on more than one occassion. Even rode it around after dark. I think like someone said before someone was either JEOLOUS or has NO clue what 10mph looks like going past them. It is even quiter than a lot of the GolfCarts that drive around. It's only got 200 miles on the odometer. Most of them are from this CG even.
I don't think the behavoir of the camp ground owners was correct, but, 200 miles on the speedo and MOST in this camp ground is poshing their allowance of using scooters and gulfcarts.........how many laps around the camp ground is that? personally I would find that constant riding a problem also.

The 200 miles is over the course of 3 years and its NOT all CG. I have driven in the big city a few times. Which by the way is a blast with semi's and school buses going with you.

In response to the insurance it has NEVER be asked for and never had my id checked. I have seen kids as young as 10 driving carts without adults on them as well.

I'm not totally surprised you haven't got a reply. What can they say yes we got all up in his face and yelled at him with his daughter hanging onto him. Even if they think I broke some NEW rule that was not on my receipt.

I would suggest you do as the campground owner ordered you to do and not bring your equipment (ANY OF IT) back to his campground ever again.. Camp elsewhere.

I have, in my travels, come across two (so far) campgrounds where I did not like the way the employees treated me.. and I parked elsewhere.. I suggest you do the same.

I might add one of the "elsewhere" campgrounds is now on my "Got to go back there" list. The other one was the nicest park in town, but also expensive, I won't be returning if I can avoid it.

Before this all gets out of hand, I'll post a reminder of our Community Rules:
Quote:
Dealer/Vendor and Customer Disputes
This forum is not intended to be a mechanism for people to vent frustrations about vendors or sales from private parties. Please settle your differences with the seller, manufacturer and dealer through other means but not through our community.
Continuing to rehash the situation is coming precariously close to escalating this into a vendor dispute and encouraging the campground to post will take it there. That'll be the end of this thread. The OP has expressed his opinion of his experience, advice has been given - let's move on.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?
