We camped and floated at Blue Springs Ranch in Bourbon MO this last weekend. This is by no means a bash on the owners or their employees because they are always great. Apparently the people who stayed in the cabin next to our campsite either have never camped before or just not often enough to learn basic campground etiquette. The very first night, one of the drunk people from the cabin walked right through the middle of our campsite because they knew the people staying 3 campsites down from them. So about 45 minutes later he comes back through and decides it was a good time to stop and chat while we were sitting down to dinner. I let him know we were eating, in case he couldn't tell, and asked him to continue on his journey. The next morning while my wife was out walking the dogs, more people from the cabin walked through as our dogs were letting them know their presence was not appreciated. About 2 hours later they walked back through using a different path but still through our campsite. I was cooking breakfast and they tried engaging me in conversation. I said nothing and they continued. I guess they finally took the hint as the next time from their cabin the cut through a tree line that separated the road from their cabin. Are people that oblivious or am I too old fashioned to expect basic common courtesy?

For me it kinda depends on the park. We just left a "resort" park, that was a "Resort" park, not just part of the title. Lot's of rules, etc. It didn't happen and I would have addressed it if it did, as nice as possible. I'm not out to make enemies, but I don't have to be everyone's friend either, I'm at that point.

KOAs, Beaches, State Parks, I really don't care too much. I usually wave and talk a bit if I feel like it. If my wife is out I usually leave...she talks it up too much. I'm usually in the A/C waiting for the report.

The point I do care everywhere is if you smoke or are drunk and walk through or have your dog dump near me, have loud, obnoxious kids, or are dragging a bunch of junk through, like rafts, boats, tables, chairs and mother-in-laws, stuff like that.

While this is not about campsites, it is about etiquette. While I driving thru the NPs I had no toad vehicle so I was using my motorhome. I would drive to various vistas and in the parking lot there were spots for RVs and buses, but off coarse they were filled with small cars and motorcycles. I noticed that the worst offenders were from either Calif. or Oregon.

Along those same lines we stop in Cracker Barrels every so often and find cars parked in the spaces reserved for campers. The parking lot has plenty of open spaces for cars but there they are, in the campers spots.

Your expectations make perfect sense to me.

Just say "oh, be careful, my holding tank was leaking pretty bad".
Tell them all about your Bigfoot sighting and walk with them as they leave.
Set a little porta-potty out and hang a towel up for privacy.
Wear some daisy Dukes and a wife beater a yell get off my lawn.

Avoid spots that are close to popular areas.
