I wouldn't have, but I likely would have notified the campground. A renter may be receptive, but I have found that most folks who are "experienced" are set in their ways.

Best to take notice maybe notify the staff. Not worth ruining a vacation if you get into it with someone and it escalates. Be safe think smart and just notify staff to be sure they clean the site for the next renters. They could probably charge the credit card on file some type of cleanup fee.

Disposable rubber gloves, buy some you will be glad you did.

I use the automotive type because they seem to be a little thicker and more chemical resistant that the ones you get at Walgreens.

I am thinking that a spray bottle with bleach/water solution may be in order!

It is a help but the gloves add an extra level of protection.

Sheesh, after reading the OP, it makes me wish you could buy that purple glove material (nitrile?) in 4' rolls. Just roll it out over the entire camp site and dispose of it when we leave. Just glad we don't have toddlers to worry 'bout...no kids...just a fid (kid with fur) and Lord only knows what he gets in to.

Maybe we need to add a pump up sprayer full of bleach to our "must have" equipment.
