huh?

Breaking camp makes noise. Cranking in awnings,putting BBQ's away, campchairs, slamming storage doors like an idiot. It woke our entire family up.

If you are underway by 7AM you are making noise during quiet hours and a bad camper IMO.

Some of us are NOT retired and have time limits to meet so sometimes a 6am or 7am pull out is needed. And then sometimes we pull in late too.

But then again that person may have gotten a phone call that was an emergency of maybe a family member in the hospital or something and needed to be gone to be there. You don't know.

And that is why some of us boondock at rest areas, truck stops and where ever else.

If it's that upsetting, I'd shy away from campgrounds that are "line 'em ups" and look for places like The Pinery Provincial Park in Ontario where there is a 50m "buffer zone" between each site.

I'm not trying to be critical of you because I've encountered some these same inconsiderate poopheads at campgrounds from time to time myself. However, the majority of real RV'ers and campers are trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean and reverent folks- just like Boy Scouts. They respect their camping neighbors and the environment.

Breaking quiet hour rules is no different than breaking leash or pet cleanup rules. Emergencies aside. When you checkin into a CG you agree to the rules IMO.

When traveling we stop early in the day, usually about 1-2 pm. We have had to wait only twice in 7 years. We normally hit the road about 11 a.m.

If you check in right behind a check out, please don't complain that the site was not perfectly clean. Hosts/Staff need time between campers to clean.

7am is not early for the majority of people. most cg's do not consider people leaving by 7 breaking quiet hrs. [moderator edit]

It is annoying when people bang things around, talk loudly and let their diesels idle for 30 minutes when they are only 10-20 ft. from your window.

We are fulltimers and usually spend months at a time at our campsites. When we are traveling, especially during hot weather, we like to be at our destination as early as possible. We only cover 150-225 a day so an early departure is preferable to escape the hottest part of the day.

We will get as much done the night before as possible so all we have to do is disconnect the electric cord, do our walk-arounds and leave.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

I like to start out around 8 am. Sandee likes to start out when she is ready. Guess who wins. A few times we have left after check out time.

So far it has been pretty good. I've been parked in the same CG since May except for some side trips. Often I have had folks pull in next to me and not even hear them. Perhaps that is because my rig is well insulated.

I enjoy the sound of a DP...then again, I LOVE the sound of jets too.

I agree. If our travel plans require an early departure, then we depart as scheduled.

I adhere to quiet hours but actual departure quiet often depends on timing my arrival at next campground. However, I never leave after checkout time ... always before or at that time.

We always check out and leave by the posted check out time. If we want to stay later, we always check and obtain approval for a late departure. If it cannot be granted, we make other arrangements.
However, I have never been in campgronds with checkout times after 12 noon. Some require departure by 11:00 AM. Most campgrounds have posted checkin times of 2:00 PM, at the earliest. some have checkin as late as 4:00 PM.
