Exactly right. Just because we are there to relax and have a good time does not mean our expectation of basic good manners has to be suspended.

I hate people cutting through my site because in my case, it's absolutely a safety issue. I have two dogs that are out on leads. If they are on my site and minding their own business and someone decides to cut through, they will jump up and run towards them and bark at them.

Neither one of them has ever hurt anyone (they just bark a lot) but they will certainly scare the crap out of someone and then a million and one things could go wrong. They could wrap the persons legs up in their leads, the person could trip over them, the person could start running and hurt themselves etc...

Then of course I'm responsible even though I didn't do anything wrong.

Most of the post I see on this activity seems to be in state or federal campgrounds and I've seen this activity at State parks that I've stayed at. The thing is these are not private camp sites and people are going to walk through where they want to because it's a public park and they just don't care. One thing to is that these campgrounds are usually cheaper and that attracts a certain type of people. The main thing is, be nice and try to enjoy. Happy Camping

We have 2 Labs that we always bring with us but we are on a 3 month camping trip and didn't bring them. Maybe that is why it has never been an issue before. Lakejumper, funny you should mention placing something in the path. Our neighbor tenters flew out west to go camping. I guess they bought supplies once they arrived and could not take everything back with them. They offered us what they couldn't use which included 2 plastic chairs, great for sitting in the river to cool off. We found a perfect place to put them when not sitting in the river and of course will leave them for the next people after us. Most campers are fine people.

I am not advocating this creative idea but, in my mind I would leave a few gravel rakes laying around the site.

As long as you are not:
stealing,
leaving a mess,
making a lot of noise after hours,
tripping over hoses, cords, personal items,
feel free to walk thru our campsite...and we'll be sure to stay away from yours if you feel otherwise...
Don't sweat the petty stuff and don't pet the sweaty stuff...

Here is where the value of camping with a pair of large dogs comes in
