I would thank them for attracting all the bugs away from me.

How do you find a campground that allows five dogs ? Most we have been to have restrictions to two.

We recently stayed at a CG that had (at our site) a very bright light. It was right over the fire ring making it less attractive sitting there trying to enjoy the fire. Mentioned it to the owner and was told they need the lights every so often for road safety. I get that, but it could be deflected from the camp site.


I wouldn't mind someone approaching me (with manners) if something I was doing offended them or was causing a problem. That is one of the reasons I follow the CG rules. Quiet time at 10pm. we are quiet. Usually quiet before that. Keep our camp site clean, our rig clean, and try to respect others.


Probably always going to be someone that doesn't follow that, but it can be approached carefully. "What kind of lights do you have on your rig, they sure are bright."

Turns out my theory of keeping the critters away is just a myth. .. had the leds on last night while we were down the hill at the camp fire. One dog was zonked out on the "patio". I looked up and saw a raccoon heading toward the sleeping dog and less than a foot away from him. So, in our case, l.e.d. and bird dog do not scare away critters...

Don't forget that many of the campers are from the city. We have been conditioned for years that "the dark is not your friend" and we have great encouragement as a first line of defence to have a well lighted house and yard.

My TT came stock with the LED strip under the awning. And it's not dimmable. Not much I can do if I want light out there at night short of using a lantern. I might look in to a dimmer module if the LED's are capable of that.

I generally don't have them on unless I'm doing something outside that requires the light. But, if they were bothering someone I'd gladly turn them off. One need only ask politely. I'll even supply some beers for the trouble.

isn't that the truth......it's a selfish world we live in. The RV crowd in general is more sensitive than any others that I've been around. No lights, no noise, no kids, no dogs, ect ect. Maybe they should buy their own campground where no one else is allowed in? I see the same types at every campground we go to. Riding around all day on their golf carts eyeballing every site. I can tell you right up front. If I need to fire the grill up after dark to cook because we've been out running around all day there's going to be lights involved in that......as many as I can turn on. If it bothers you then we need to get out the campground rules to see what those say. Unless they say no lights after dark then you can go pound sand.

I think some of it has to do with everyone living on top of one another.....
I have been in S. FL way too long....... If I drive 90 min up the center of the state. Away from the 'cities' it is another world............. I pulled into a county camp ground after Hr's and the instructions said to call a #.
Honest to God, the call back was like a long lost relative. IMO People living in major cities don't have much compassion. Everything is Dog eat Dog.....
In my area, 99.9999% of the time if you use your turn signal people speed up to block you out. Out west, you turn on your turn signals and they will let you in, I have even had oncoming traffic stop to let me turn.
Once I get out of this area, it doesn't take me long to unwind and rejoice at those wanting to help rather than those wanting to have a pis.... contest.

We live in a subdivision north of indianapolis. The sounds are different here - sirens, school busses, honking horns of impatience. .. the sights and sounds of business and stress. People cutting each other off, forgetting they are technically neighbors. I love the sounds of stress free activity at the campgrounds. As long as it's all in respect and thoughtfulness. I really think there's just such a boom in the industry that the common etiquette rules are truly unknown to some. The dilemma is, how do we inform them kindly without confrontation? I considered crime tape to keep the site trespassers at bay this past weekend But that's probably a little too passive-aggressive

It's not rude, at all. I would suggest asking, as opposed to telling, but that's just my opinion.
