...illegal 18' retractable leashes??? All laws state a 6' leash.
...inconsiderate dog owners (I was a pet owner for many years. My dog died back in March. You have a responsibility to pick up after your pets)
...People that cut across your campsite (and they have to go out of their way to cut thru our sites because we try to park out of traffic patterns)
...too much racket, be it kids, loud party or music... add to that those outside TVs...WHY!!! (I have found that classical music blasting away tends to shut down other unwanted music)
...Bright lights all night long.
... Folks who think someone will come along behind them and clean up the mess they made (Leave no trace... leave a site or bathhouse as clean or cleaner than you found it)
...The idiots that think a wooden picnic table is a good place to have a fire.
...campground "volunteers" that are getting sites for "free" in exchange for spending a few hours a week riding around in golf carts NOT WORKING. They knew what they signed up for yet will not keep the campground clean and picked up.

...time to see the campground host??? Campground hosts that BREAK THE RULES THEMSELVES!!!!! And they won't enforce the rules either.

...and to see an RV preparing to leave ...flushing their sewer hose from the campsite's fresh water spigot, bringing the two together whereas bacteria is bound to hit the spigot/faucet rim. Wouldn't you like to be the next guy coming into that campsite? ...hook your water hose up ...and bring in some of those germs and bacteria? ...or to get some of it on your hands at that same spigot while hooking up yourself? I see this happening often enough. I now carry a small container of Chlorox and will push it up under the spigot before attaching our hose.

We are dog owners and as stated I always find folks dont clean up behinde Fido was one of mine, Second would be noise and walking through our site. But this weekend we found something that is way too unforegiving. We went to a state park, and besides having way to maney Camp host getting free sites they take up a double site and no one can use the other site cause they store stuff in it , then you get the guy who I understand he paid for the second site but the only thing in it is a car and car trailer ( there is a FREE overflow Parking area) and then there is the guys with tents in a full hookup RV site they have nothing with electric or a sewer hook up. Because of all these things folks with RVs have no place so they can enjoy camping. I blaime the Rangers for not ensureiong the rules are followed and the tenters with tent permits dont belonge in the RV sites.

People who take over your site as a parking lot when you take your rig out for a side trip or some maintenance. Then they dissapear for hours so you have to stay in the overflow area sometimes overnight while they are rounded up and cleared out.

Vehicles (other than RV's) blocking the diesel pumps at the Flying J RV islands. Some dodo's will pull in there to park while running inside to make a purchase, others who use diesel will pass up the car diesel pumps and fill up at the RV islands, causing it to back up with a line of RV's.

my pet peeve.......kids that YELL! Kids are kids everywhere but "little Johnnie" who is
hollering for "little Tommie" who happens to be
20 campsites away or on the other side of the campground is not very polite to me and
those parents that allow this, well, thats just
wrong. Johnnie should just go over to Tommie and speak to him normally. The dog thing...anybody that lets their dog offlead or off their campsite without the 6ft rule is rude.
If one doesn't pick up after their dog, thats just plain nasty. I pick up after my dogs, (2 small IGs) and I also flush the ground with water after they p and I would expect a courteous camper to do the same. I also agree
about the music, the volume should be low.

Folks of the Toyhauler persuasion have other peeves...

Some folks rip through the campground and coat everything in dust. Some parents let their little kids constantly ride laps around the camp ground. Other folks run super-loud no muffler bikes, or put stereos on their ATV's.

Even though it's a riding area, it's nice not to make more noise in the campground that necessary.

The group I ride with all run quiet pipes, and when we are coming back in we idle from the trailhead directly to our camp spot and shut down. The majority of riders out there are considerate of others and tread lightly, but the few rude and inconsiderate riders really give ammunition to those who don't think there should be any off road riding areas at all.

This one really gets me when I'm on the road trying to make decent time going from point A to point B... At one Flying J we were stuck behind an RV at the diesel pump for about an hour and watched them prepare lunch, sit down, finish. Then just when we think they are goiong to move their family members start going in and out of the store.

Another time I was standing there at Flying J's refueling and the guy in the next lane had just dumped. He got his 3" hose and swirled both ends, one in each hand in opposing circles drying them out with drops of waste water flying all over the place.

It can be infuriating when others think they are the center of the universe... seemingly oblivious to others in the world around them.

Not only the diesel pumps ar being utilized by other than RV'ers. Flying J does not police this problem.

I have waited in a gas line at Flying J far to long. It shouldn't take a half hour plus to get in and out.

I personally have voiced my consternation to management, hoever, I expect it will take more than a handful of voices to get their attention.

Horse trailers that are pulled up to the pump with the dump station and stay an hour or so while they muck out the stalls etc. You get two of them in front of you and you may as well plan to spend the night. Usually on a Sunday evening during rush hour. This is Flying J/Dump Station manners but its all part of camping.

My solution to the problems posted here and other problems is that it is far quicker and easier on the blood pressure to just ask the other party to be considerate. Explain the situation to them and "most" times it can be resolved quickly.

Why take the time to chase down a manager or campground host when all it generally takes is a moment of your time to handle the problems like adults. Sometimes a person may not know they being inconsiderate.

If that does not work and they are not embarrassed because of their behavior then contact the appropriate person of authority.

Just my 2 cents..

I agree Rick, a lot of people just have their heads up their butt and can't see that they are causing a problem. A few tackful words and "POP" out comes their head from their butt, "Oh sorry, I didn't realize ..." and they usually comply with the request.

I certainly agree with every post I have read on this thread. It makes me feel better that I am not the only person that gets steamed at these inconsiderate bumpkins. There is one more that really infuriates me. Roadside parks where they clearly have marked truck and RV parking and half of the long slots are taken up by four wheelers with out trailers or any additional wheels. These people nap, have picnics, walk their dogs, or just generally goof off, while you have no place to park with a rig and tow.
