We're in a private campground and everyone waves. You go for a walk, we all talk. Last summer at Ocean City, MD there were all kinds, from not friendly to very friendly.

As they attempt to take control of us with their unrelenting verbiage, that in and of itself, is a form of rudeness. They seem to be oblivious or uncaring as to how we may be feeling. Most reasonable people intuitively know how conversations are going and when to continue the discussion and when to back off.
Personally, I enjoy meeting new people but I try get a sense as to why they are camping. Is it peace and quiet? R & R? Socializing? All night drinking? Uppermost I am respectful of their wishes and I would at the very least expect likewise.

We're just the opposite. My husband slips quietly away (he's a pro at it) and leaves me holding the bag before I know what's happening.

We were on our way out west, taking our time....stopped off at a campground in La Hideaway Pond Recreational Resort.....what a mistake. We were assigned a spot between two family or friends....one had a dog that didn't stop yapping, and we got the feeling that we had taken this spot away from a friend that was suppose to arrive before us. They were not friendly, they made us really uncomfortable with how they parked there cars, having us to manuver our vehicle to be safe from getting hit.
We have made it a point to check out the site prior to us setting up.......and if possible even to check on the folks on either side.

This is why I like higher end CGDs. Eliminates most of it, not all but most.

We are TT and RPI members....the " RV Park" we stayed at in La. was an RPI park...we usually have a nice stay at any RPI and most TT parks are nice.
I guess there are exceptions to the rule

We have been in a few "higher end" campgrounds and found that the "higher end" people can be just as obnoxious as those in lower-end CGs, COEs, National and State Parks. It's not worth the extra cost.

Talking

My DH and I just got back from a trial run to Morro Dunes in Morro Bay, Ca and hit the same reality road block. I wanted to talk to everyone ..... some not so much. So I thought I'd put a sign that said Do You IRV2? After causing a few near misses, I finally added the dot com to help clear things up alittle, not to be....after more near misses I took the sign down
Reality sucks, I was hoping someone would recognise the sign and we could talk and talk and ....well you know. NOT THAT I WOULD TALK YOUR EARS OFF.. Just to meet someone who knows this site would have put the cherry on the top.
So, if ya see a 30ft Hurricane with the sign "Do You IRV2?" in front and back, please don't run the other way! I'm really looking forward to meeting IRV2 members. You just might be able to make some of my worries go away!

Safe travels

Gary and Marian w/THREE Poms (pray for us)

Now if we could get all you over gabbers in one campground, at the same time what a party!

Well My fiance, son and myself probably said hi and smiled at over a dozen people and only one smiled back and said hi. The rest actually just looked at us and turned their heads like we did'nt matter. Very very rude people! No matter what it did'nt spoil our time as a family, but it was a bit disheartining for us. We plan on still hitting the road to see more many new places with our RV and hope along the way people will be a little more kinder. Has anyone ever experienced this? Safe journeys friends!
Anthony the Problem was not with you. We use to live in Westminster so we know that area. That campground is how can i say this not for nice rigs or weekend camping. It is for people that are on hard times and are going to work from there. We are not snobs and have stayed at some Campgrounds across the country that have people that are working in the Area some are nice and some are not. Try to get reservations along the Beach. Glad to see you here enjoy.

People can be obnoxious no matter what price you pay to get into a campground.
