Campground etiquette

We are currently staying at Up the Creek in Pigeon Forge, TN. It is beautiful. We have a deluxe creek side site. It is right on the creek. As we checked in, the printed rules were given to us which states that campers are supposed to respect other campers and not walk through others campsites. This is a pet leave of mine anyway. One thing I love is to be able to open the shade and look at the water early in the morning lying in the bed sometimes. Yesterday morning, imagine my surprise as I was lying there and the neighbor with two dogs was not just walking them by the creek but exactly next to my window. She was even looking in. We have a dog and I get early morning walks but definitely not right next to someone's camper or through their site. It would not have bothered me so much if it was a little further away. Anyone else have a problem with this?

its ignorance and by that I mean some just don't know better. My kids did that once and my oldest was 16 and I told them to go around , they thought it was like a public park not realizing that people are paying for the site and they're here to relax not watch strangers walk thru and maybe even get concerned that someone can take something. Its a bit rude I agree...

We've stay at that cg many times. The way the layout is with the stream running on both sides makes makes it undefinable like a regular cg. It's going to happen. As for someone looking into your windows....not cool.

My pet peeve is when the dog owners do not have their pets on a leash and let them roam over in our space to use the bathroom , And even this weekend let their dog urinate on our trash can while they were watching it do so

Having neighbors is part of 'camping'..... Live with it and enjoy letting loose a little. If one gets too 'uptight' about 'encroachment'..... then interacting with the great outdoors and the animals and people that are there may not be 'your thing'..... you do have a choice, be nice and welcoming to those that 'wonder' around or stay home. Yes, you 'paid for that site'. you borrowed (rented) it for a while, but it is also nice to share with others. We all seems to get the neighbors that we deserve. 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 rude 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.

I do tend to agree with this logic but there is a difference between those who "wonder around and are friendly" and those that are just "rude" and expect that everyting that is yours they are entitled too. I think the vast majority of campers are the former and I enjoy/welcome them. But I have zero tolerance for the latter!
