I've know a few friends of mine that had their portable generator stolen at a cg and it was locked up. They told me the thieves stole around 6 portable generators that were locked up in that cg that night. I personally had my boat cover stolen from my storage yard and the guy parked next to me got his prop stolen as well his tt getting broken into. I hear less thefts that happen while camping and more while in storage... How often do we actually check in on our toys while in storage? Even with cameras my storage told me there was no way to identify who stole my cover and thieves would seem to have as much time as needed to take what they like. They could even scout storage lots to see which lots would have the most valueable equipment with the lowest chances of getting caught. Just food for thought since this topic has been brought up.

We have never had anything stolen. But my cousin who camps with us 4-5 times a year was with a group a few weeks ago and others in the group had 2 coolers full of beer stolen. The CG workers ended up finding out who it was when 2 kids in their early 20's were seen throwing 2 coolers, full of empty cans, into one of the dumpsters the next day.

Only thing we have ever had stolen was a couple of pieces of firewood, and it happened right in front of us. A young child was walking around looking for firewood and walked up to our pile and picked up a piece and started to walk away. He couldn't have been more than 5 or 6 years old. We sat their just stunned, not knowing what to say. Then the child's father came around the bend and saw what his son was doing he was so apologetic and embarrassed. We were just like hey he couldn't carry more than 1 or two pieces anyway, no problem. One thing I have noticed more of though is lack of respect for other people's sites. What I mean is I would never take a short cut and walk through someone's site, whether they are there or not. It seems lately that some people, mainly young adults think it is perfectly OK to just cut through your site .

I've never had anything stolen in years and years of camping except a loaf of bread...the culprits were racoons. They were polite, however, and put the lid back on the container (back in the tenting days). They were also polite enough to leave the bread bag at the back of the campsite so it wasn't unsightly litter.

The only real issue I've ever had was a Raccoon getting into a cooler!

Skeeter, you too? I had a raccoon get in my cooler and take some pizza I had, no kidding. Kinda blew my mind that they were able to do that, yet leave the Miller alone.

That is also something we've been noticing and yes its mostly with teenagers. One time I made the mistake of getting a site that was next to the Camp areas restroom and showers Never again will I do that. Everyone and their mother was cutting through our site. What I usually do now is get solar lights and make a perimeter around my site. That has actually helped.

What a great setting for a child to learn.
