I couldn't care less and if I'm sitting outside, I usually chat them up and ask how their hike was and if they found any morels (in the spring). I've even offered beers.

My thinking is this: I'm not home, I'm not at work, I'm out in nature, and this is supposed to be a relaxing hobby, not a stressful one. Why should I get worked up about such minor stuff?

Of course, I realize that's just me and not everyone is so laid back.
In a slightly different way this is a good idea. Try to get the people to stop and talk. Delay them. Get them to stop and get involved in conversation. Act like you haven't seen people in weeks. Kill them with kindness. I think this will get old and they will find another path.

I get we are camping and need to maybe take it easy... I draw the line when they walk between me and my trailer as I am at my picnic table, use my picnic table to run across as they cut through or use my trailer as their support as they cut through...

I consider myself, for the most part, very easy going. Especially when off and camping, but there are a few things that just cannot be ignored..

I think that is what starts to happen when we have 80,755 members... Lots of personalities, all different.

In all seriousness, treat someone's campsite like you would their yard. Unless invited, or you need to speak with them for some reason, stay out.

We just got back from a two week stay at a COE campground in Tionesta, Pa. No issues at all. Last year we had trouble with a bunch of slugs with five tents taking up two sites that broke every rule in the book. Found out the park was cut back to only three rangers. Saw some people come in Fridaynight, left Sunday morning and never did register or pay.

OP, could you place something on their path to block them from walking through or reroute them without starting a spat? Perhaps move a vehicle or place an ice chest, chairs, totes, bicycle or something else. This is what I've done when I'm able to. If I can, I purposefully avoid spaces where folks can cut through but sometimes you don't know until you arrive. Some people take the shortest route and this is the "price" we pay to have a nice camping spot in a desirable location ��.
