I have to put a lot of the blame on late night noise on the campgrounds themselves for not enforcing their own rules. If someone arrives after hours with a VERY load vehicle, etc, I feel it's the campgrounds responsibility and right to just park them on the entrance road until morning. I've been in campground where the security drives around in golf carts and trucks you can hear a mile away, it's no wonder they don't enforce quiet time, the campers hear them coming and all noise quits till they're gone. It's up to the campground to start enforcing quiet times, and rules!!!

Perhaps the best solution of all. Wish I could pull it off personally . . .

We have found though that the best solution to NOISY people at night is a good set of
EAR PLUGS, does wonders to quiet things down real quick

I don't find it quite as bad when the loud party people are young(being not so old as to remember what it was like to be young myself),but when they are old enough to know better,and sometimes even have a few kids of their own with them that it truly gets annoying.

As I see it quiet hors are quiet hours. If a big 1 ton dually with hopped up exhaust pulls up after quiet hours, I have to agree with another poster. The cg operator should park them and let the roll in at 7am... If I was kept up by a loud late arrival, I would at a minimum be asking for a refund of my nights fee.

What I wonder is why the truck makers don't do something to help quiet these diesel engines. I know it's possible as there are semi trucks with quieter engines than most 3/4 or 1 ton pickups. Not to mention plenty of smaller diesels that sound almost like gas engines (neighbor has a BMW suv with the diesel, took me quite a while to even realize it was a diesel).

Recently when camping in Brown County State Park in Indiana, we arrived to a group of college students, likely from IU, just across from us. They were drinking it up and having a great time. We figured they would be loud and rowdy that night, but they turned in before we did. They also broke camp and were gone by 8:30am.

Loved the early breakfast story by the way!

I agree. You never know what the situation was to have them arriving so late. It could easily be you and although YOU don't think what you're doing is annoying or bothersome it may be to someone else.

All I have to say is I love my Sons Sound Machine. I probably couldn't hear a chainsaw going outside our trailer because of the white noise. I'm use to it and love it.

We have been camping for several years. We started with the tent moved to pup now in ultra light (surveyor). I must say we have always been careful of the noise we are generating. I think coming from the tent and working our way up it made us very aware of noise and how it travels in a campground. Most of our camping is in NY state parks, some with electric some without. I agree most of the time the weekends are the loudest times. I imagine the folks that make noise too late, early or just all of the time without concern for their fellow campers are the same that you would not like to have as neighbors at home. We live in a rural setting and at times can hear the "neighbor" about 1/4 mile down the road yell at his dog, or wife or kids...now grandkids. Generally alcohol is involved. I believe the parks do not enforce the sound rules like they should at times.
I would like to know from those that have had this problem in a campground how to best handle it... or what has worked for you?

I have found that turning on the A/C fan helps a lot with masking outside noise.
