But if you " spread out " then wander off to walk dog , use laundry etc . Why should the person who has rented the spot be forced to start looking for you and asking you to move .
It's a lack of consideration for others

It's not considerate to spread out and leave - agreed. That's why I wouldn't do that!

So to spread out, sit there and remove anything IF someone happens to show up is inconsiderate? Call me inconsiderate than. The original grumpy guy too. Seems he was on site and moved his equipment when someone appeared.

A thought on the matter of neighbor "getting in your space", or acting in any manner that's inappropriate. I've learned to always go to the campground manager and let them take care of it. That's why they are paid the "big bucks". The reason for this is that if a person does something rude or inconsiderate, they will most likely respond in an aggressive way, no matter how gentle you are with your words. This can never have a happy ending.
For the most part, "campers" are wonderful, friendly and generous people, which is why I love it!

You are so right!

But why sit or place gear on a site you have not paid for . Reserve a bigger site or use communal area ?

Wait!... Did you park next to my Dad? (Just a joke Dad!) Most people that meet my Dad for the first time think he is a grumpy old fart. thats why he needs me around- so I can "meet" the people then he comes out of his shell and they find out hes a really cool guy that doesn't do well on first contact.

IMHO, he tried to "make up" when he asked if he could help you hook up. If that had been me, I would have said something like "I can always use help trying to dock this boat if you can spare a few."

But then again, I'm used to being around a grumpy old man.

I'm not talking about setting up gear on their spot or camping on it. I'm talking about putting a car there so its out of the way while I setup.

I dont hold an empty site in sanctity for the person that may arrive. Then again I dont camp where there are many people so that probably plays into it. The last five trips I've taken I've been the only rig in site. I dont camp in grass fields with rigs lined up like soldiers.

I guess I don't understand this kind of thinking. Why would you think you have any right to occupy a campsite you didn't pay for? Even if it is momentarily placing a vehicle on it while you set up. You didn't pay for it, so keep your car off it. Then when someone comes to rightfully occupy the site neither you nor they will be put out. I guess common courtesy is not so common anymore.

My dad's motto in dealing with someone like that was to "kill them with kindness". Either they come around or may realize what a jerk they are.
