Many people forget to bring one of the most important things for camping, PATIENCE....A little noise, step in some poo, these are all high class problems..I certainly don't advocate bad behavior for weeks on end, but a couple of nights here and there, no big deal....if there was a wedding at the campground I was staying at I would pull up a couple of chairs and enjoy the spectacle.....Relax, life is to short.

You gave no indication you were kidding around. Lest I be considered gullible I'll simply no longer take you at your word.

From reading most of the 8 pages of conversation, it would appear to me that we have lost respect. Not all, but a lot. I am probably guilty, because of my age. When I was a kid, we respected our elders, that's what we were taught. Well, I AM one of those elders I used to respect, but times have changed. A good while ago, I learned I had to give it to get it. It's not automatic like when I was a kid. There is a big lack of respect, I've seen it from some of the 30 something's as well.
So, next time a neighbor camper is getting on your nerves, if it's bad enough that you have to ask them to cool their jets, remember, we've all been there before, at one time or another. Put their shoes on for a minute before you go talk to them.
It goes back to what my mother taught me "son, you get a lot more flies with honey than vinegar". She is right. I don't usually have too many issues with other "partying campers".

We stayed on the cape for a weekend last year and actually ended up calling the office about a domestic going on across from us. Swearing, yelling, beer cans being thrown, and the likes. It was crazy. We called the office (it was after they were closed) and within 10 minutes the local police were there with two cruisers.

They were told to either calm down and be quite or get out.

They calmed down and it was quiet the rest of the night. They were gone the next morning though.

We have also seen our share of dirty, rowdy and inconsiderate people at multiple campgrounds.

I have been camping all my life (almost 40 now) and I was taught that you will respect other sites, the site will be cleaner when you leave and to mind others around you.

I agree that things are fading fast. The best you can do is continue to be respectful of others and deal with it appropriately when you have to.

Once, while still tent camping, we hit a National campground for the weekend. We had all settled in for the evening when some young 20-somethings showed up, and started to party. It got drunker and louder (they had a guitar, but no one could sing!!). I went up to the ranger station to see if I could get some help, but no luck, so called the local sheriff's department and they, too, were unable to help. So we rode it out and decided to break camp and leave early. We got up the next morning and you could see these guys a couple of campgrounds away, passed out around what was left of a fire they were not supposed to have with food and booze bottles/cans laying everywhere. As the camp rangers came through to gather fees, they started getting an earful from the first campers somewhere down the road way away from where these clowns were and, of course, when they got to us, we filled them in on what we knew. Now mind you, like most National Parks, there are bear in these woods! These rangers were fit to be tied! They went over and none to gently woke these guys up and read them the riot act. They wrote a citation and when no one would sign it, the threatened to take all of their names and have them banned from the park forever. One of them finally manned up. This is really the worst I have encountered from strangers. I have some "friends" who I would deem every bit as bad, sadly! I guess it happens and we live and learn.

I am a fairly big guy 6 ft 4,240lbs. I have had problems like everybody else.
I know that a lot of people won't agree with this but it has worked for me.
I confront the idiots. I ask them plain and simple to keep it respectable,or the authorities will be called to collect the bodies.
Yes I know I could be asking for trouble.
But works for me!
Now don't get me wrong I use a lot of diplomacy and it works,most seem happy that they were able to get a reaction.After that they seem to settle down. I have even had them invite us over for beers and food.
