I happened to find this article on the web this morning.

I am just curious what your biggest pet peeve is as far as BAD camping manners?

Great article and some great advice. We try to be good neighbors and follow the particlar rules of each campground as well. We clean up after our dog and are mindful of the rights of all campers.

To answer your question - my pet peeve is rap "music", which is a misnomer in my opinion since it is not music at all! Not sure why that type of noise must be played at dB levels that can be heard a mile away!

I think this should be required reading for every new camper. It is just good common sense, but most people are not much on the common sense now.

I do not go camping to listen to the music from two site down.

People who feel their speech must match ir exceed the ruggedness of the setting and the crudeness of the facilities.

While the occasional trip to the outhouse with all its unpleasentness may be necessary vulgar speech is not.

People that cut across your campsite, had people move my chairs etc. trying to get from their campsite to the pool. When in the Florida Keys they don't make wide campsites.

We have always been very upset with people with small dogs that don't pick up after them. They seem to think that the small dog **** doesn't do anyone any harm. They usually walk them early in the morning or late in the evening. We have a dog that must go with us every time the motorhome leaves the driveway, anyway she seem to think so. We pick up after her whereever we are and expect other dog owners to do the same.

I'd like dog owners to let their dogs pee on their own lots. Not on other lots or general campground property. Who wants to walk were a dog just peed and then go in their expensive motorhome???

And what's up with those illegal 18' retractable leashes??? All laws state a 6' leash.

I'll put on my flame resistant suit- here goes:

Camp Fires! The ones made by people that brought a load of "wood" from the remodeling project at home. The ones who have a fire burning (and usually stinking) 24 hours a day, even when they are gone all day. The ones who burn garbage in their fire. The ones who make enough smoke that you would think the camground was on fire. The ones who think the camp fire has to be the size of a bonfire and makes you break into a sweat from 30 feet away, and makes so much light that it ruins the night sky.

Years ago it seemed that it was an art to build a small relatively smoke free fire. This was accomplished thru proper wood selection and good instruction from an accomplished fire builder. Apparently this craft is all but gone.

I'm afraid my vote goes with the majority here... inconsiderate dog owners. As a former owner, now traveling without pets of any kind (except DW!), we are both amazed at:
1. Dog owners who think their dog can run loose in their campsite (the dog doesn't know the bounderies).
2. Dog owners who don't know what a 6' leash is. All campgrounds have a "leash rule" and it is normally 6'. The leashes that allow the dog to run out 20' should be banned. If you can't control the dog at 6', it is certainly not controlled at 20'
3. Enuff has already been said about owners who don't pick up after Fido.
4. The dog owner who is "just going to the store... pool... restroom, etc. leaving the dog in the RV to bark and whine until he/she returns, which in some of our experience has been over 2 hours.

Dog owners, without question. We were sitting on the beach in Sonoma last year when some idiots walked their dog (no dogs allowed on the beach, signs everywhere) in front of us. It stopped and did its thing right in front of us, and the owners kicked some sand over it. Thanks.

There a lot of things that some people do that irritate me and not others. People need to be a bit more aware of their surrounds and consider the impact their actions will have on others.

We have two schnauzers and yes they will bark when someone gets too close to their "home' as dogs are protective. They do have to do their business, but we carry plastic bags and pick it up. i do not have any problem offering a bag to an irresponsible owner to let him know to pick it up.

My pet peave is to much racket, be it kids, loud party or music. I go camping for the quiet time. If I had wanted to listen to your music, I would have turned it on my radio, so they should use their iPods if they have to have noise. Kids will play, but too loud is too much, especially when they are not anywhere near their parents.

So I try to be tolerant, but everyone reaches a breaking point. When this happens, it time to see the campground host.

The world is not getting any larger, nor are the camping grounds, so we need to think of our neighbors.

Mine would have to be the person who thinks he has to light up the campground like the strip in Las Vegas. Then he leaves them on all night shinning in my windows. Jim

For me it's the people crossing or coming into my site. I've rented the space and I don't appreciate it becoming a walkway anymore than I would my lawn at home. Bright lights all night long come next and probably loud music after that.
