If I am nice and friendly to my neighbors, I have made a friend for life, if I am an axx to my neighbors, then I should not be surprised if they are pricks right back at me. Campers are almost 'open air' view points and it is very difficult NOT to look into some campers when one goes down a hiking path or the road way. People deck their campers out TO Be Seen.... and Show Off....
Learn to live with it and have a good time, or stay the way you are and live with a lot of unneeded stress.
Sorry, but we have been camping a very long time and enjoy it. We also respect other people and their space. There is a huge difference between a hiking path, road and right next to the back of a MH where there is clearly no place to walk.

We are great neighbor campers. Love to visit and share. I will continue to respect others and their privacy and hope others will do the same for me.

Does anyone ever discuss these issues with the offending individuals, or do they just post questions on a message board about the events? Maybe the hope is that they are reading this post and will learn the ways of the long time campers!

Campers seem to be getting uptight these days.

My campsite not my shoes. Packed in kinda tight here in Zion and it is a rental next door. You'd think they would have enough sense to dry their shoes on their door side. Click image for larger version

Judging by the photo, the curb side of their camper may well be in shade. They certainly could have put them closer to their own RV, though.

Sometimes you just have to tell them, because their parents never taught them how to act when camping. Jake doesn't crap in anyone's site and if he does I pick it up, your dog crap in my site (which doesn't bother me) and you don't pick it up (which does bother me) I'll bring it back to you.

It really depends on the situation just how much you want to "poke the bear"

If you are there for just one night, go right head and speak your mind. You'll probably never see them again anyways. If you are going to be there a few days, you may want to pick your battles a bit more carefully.

What are they hurting? It's not like you are going to use that space. IMO, making a mountain out of a mole hill. Just a bit "territorial" me thinks.

If it bothered me that much, I would have put them in a bag and pitched them under their trailer.
