I don't smoke, and I really don't enjoy the smell of others smoking. That said, when friends and family join us at a campsite it is not unusual for the guys to sit around the fire and smoke a big ol cigar and enjoy some fine spirits. I do enjoy my spirits.
If you are uncomfortable with you campsite, it is your option to seek a different site.
A few weeks ago, we were at a lovely campsite where the neighbor informed us that he was "medically allergic" to dogs, of course we travel with two small dogs. The campground has a no pet area, and we had reserved a location which allowed pets. We did our best to keep our pets, children, grandchildren, and friends on our side of the imaginary line between sites.
Guess what I am saying is if you don't like others smoking outdoors in a campground you either have the wrong concept of vacation or you are camping in the wrong places. Stay near San Francisco and New York City.

Everyone speaks about "rights." Well, what rights? The right to indulge in smoking and in a place where others smoke? What about the right to breath clean air? It's a lose, lose situation where rights are violated no mater what happens. So what is the solution, not taking side but providing a solution.

Politely asking them if they could move their picnic table a few feet in either direction? Changing sites, even changing with them which would put their picnic side opposite but then bother the other neighbors? As previously stated, change schedule dates? Maybe even change campgrounds. I just think there are many solutions, one just needs to seek one that benefits all, or even just you.

Happy trails and good luck.

And that effects you how? You sound like someone that should stay home in your own little world. Camping around NA is an experience, good and bad. It takes the right additude to enjoy, if you don't, you should try something else.

Just another in the LONG list of reasons why I prefer to boondock. Have you considered trying to find a quiet spot nearby? Hookups come at a very high price in terms of dollars and privacy.

If you like wading through the dog crap then be my guest, all I'm saying is for pet owners to be responsible and pick up after their pets.

As far as staying home, NOPE!

Someone's pet craps under my MH, the owner had better be crawling under it with a plastic bag.

sounds like its time for someone to put their big boy pants on and accept the world doesn't revolve around them! The fisherman are NOT breaking any laws nor breaking any campground rules!

On the flip....what happens if I camp next to you and don't like the smell of your aftershave or your wife's perfume? DO I go complain? heck NO!

I have dogs and they dont leave my site. We clean up after them and I understand some dont. No CGs allow pets to run loose, so if loose animals are dumping on your site, you need to contact mgt. If they dont take take care of it, you are in the wrong CG.

We don't camp where they pack you in like sardines... to where someone's cigarette smoke would come right in our windows. That sounds more like a RV parking lot than a true campground. I would look for another place to camp where there's more space between sites.

It just ain't as easy as everybody told me, havin' all this fun in the RVing life. But, you know what? I'm still willing to put up with all of them, if they are willing to put up with me....
Right on!

Don't miss the religious fanatics out to save the souls of campers. They come complete with book-bag full of religious tracts and bibles.....

I keep all the Watchtower mags I get at home and take them with me. Then when I get an annoying neighbor, I hand them one
