The liberties people take

Let's talk about our gripes with liberties people take at CGs.

Some obvious ones would be, walking through your campsite, loud music, golf cars, scooters and the like in non-stop NASCAR mode.

Here are a couple of mine. People parking in a vacant site. Someone just might be on the way to camp in it. Stuff over the imaginary line between sites. Just saw people with a freezer, satellite dish, boat, Christmas lights and who knows what else on the adjacent site. I don't mean a couple of inches either. It was humorous. Unless you happened to get that site of course. Then it is either ask them to move the stuff and hope they don't go off on you or get the CG involved.

People who light up their campsite like a mall parking lot and then leave the site. Also the 5th wheels that have that big light on the drivers side and leave it on all night. Some of us enjoy looking at the stars and you can't do it with all that light pollution.

I don't let the little stuff bother me. I've experienced all those things and never gave it a second thought. The last campground where I stayed, I pulled into my site to find tent lines and stakes from his pop up expansion on my site. I got my mh in place and put my slide out. It went over his tent lines. It didn't touch and all was good. I could have been a jerk and yelled at him to move his tent. It didn't bother me at all. We're all out to have a good time.

You are talking about human nature in general. Which sucks in general. Don't sweat the small stuff. Be happy you are not getting beaten and robbed.

How about 6 guys setting up a BIG outdoor TV screen (they used 2 4x8 sheets of white styrofoam held together by PVC tubing and a projection TV) in the site just behind us. The "Big Game" was on and it was late at night. They did not hold back their vocal excitement when their team either scored or failed to score. Not only did we have to put up with the yelling, but the light from the outdoor TV!

But we did get payback. Their team was playing Kentucky, and they lost.

WOOOHOOO!!! C-A-T-S cats Cats CATS!

We live in the country & on a farm so we do not have close neighbors and about the only noise I hear from any of them is either farm equipment or donkeys. We like quiet so are probably over sensitive to campground noise but we realize that so try not to get too upset.

The only real issue we've ever had was when about 6 wild kids decided to play tag or whatever through our campsite. I spoke to a couple of them once, then they ran through again and then I laid into them with some pretty stern warnings which they ignored. My boxers were not happy with them and there was no way I was going to endanger my pups because of idiot kids. The dogs went inside and Gary found the CG host who quickly put an end to the game by talking to the parents.

I've yet to understand why the parents thought it okay to let their kids run wild through the CG. No way could they not have seen or heard them.

And that Karen is my gripe, parents who care so little for their children that they do not teach them manners and responsibility. Of course the parents may not have any either, but it is still their fault.

It's not going to change anything

You can vent all you want on how something or someone bothers you. It will not change anything. My wife and I have had uncomfortable campings due to all the above mentioned "things We don't like". We take it stride that not everyone likes the same things or even consider they are bothering someone or care. We mark those campgrounds on our list as "fun, but" experiences and move on. Like said in an earlier post "life is short, don't sweet the small stuff".

Diesel Pushers that start up early in the morning and then idle for a half hour before leaving.

Campgrounds have rules like Quiet Hours, control of pets and children. Sadly many campgrounds do not have trails/paths leading to Restrooms without having walking the perimeter and roadway inviting child and adult to walk the shortest route to the restroom, pool, clubhouse, etc.

What irritates me is parents who do not watch their children and walk the animals allowing them to crap and do not clean it up.
