I camp right on rivers in New Hampshire and people will walk in between the sites and along the river bank. They walk in between the sites to avoid walking long distances.

This is perfectly fine with me and I have also met some very nice people along the river banks.

What I was talking about is kids riding their bikes thru our site almost hitting my camper and friends tents while the parents sit and watch them do this. Also the adults would cut right thru also at a leisurely pace and just stare at you not even saying hi. So not only is it rude to cut thru the sites it is also rude to stare.

I could go on forever. The point is if you need to cut thru a site you can ask permission, or do it in a respectful manner by staying towards the perimeter of the site and not walking thru your gear/shelters.

Being from a motorcycle style of life for the last 40 years, You can stop people from coming through your site if need be! IMHO, I believe in being easy to a point but there is a limit to nice.

Rude people, good dogs!!!

Overall I have to say if you have the chance go for it. Now, on the otherhand, I have never seen so many rude inconsiderate campers in my entire life! Our sites were great, and really large but very close to the bath house. We had so many people and kids cutting through our lots all weekend it was ridiculous. Even had kids running between my camper and my neighbors camper jumping over water lines ect. I finally went to the parents and advised them them needed to keep there kids from running through the campers it was unsafe. I got so tired of asking people not to walk through, and advising the cabin campers is was very rude to cut through a campsite I gave up! While I was fueling up my truck my wife was sitting outside with our dogs, under our awning, when a older lady came walking through, practicly under our awning and walking around our grill, and had the nerve to tell one of my dogs to hush when she started barking at her, my wife is too nice and didnt say anything, me, it would not have been so good! I still get aggrevated by the thought of all these people! Maybe I am wrong and its ok to cut through campsites disturbing people!

We have 2 beagles that go camping with us all the time, nothing is worse than a baying beagle, times 2. We had one trip like this. I always stopped the dogs. I got sick of keeping my dog quiet, when they were warning me of someone entering our space. I gave up and let them bark and bay, the parent made a comment about the noise, I said if you stay out of their space it would not happen. After that they did not cut into our site and the dogs did not bark at them. I think she wanted them to so she could complain to the office. Thank god it is a place we go to a lot and the owners know our dogs. That has been our only bad experience. You pay for that site and no one has the right to invade it, I think maybe toll signs might be a good idea next time!!

It wouldnt have been a big deal if it was an isolated incident, or people were apologetic when i told them it was rude to cut through someones campsite, 90% of them gave an attitude, which in turn made me get one! Actually told one smart mouthed little boy to tell his father so I could teach him some manners as well! And my dogs are well behaved, but my older/larger dog can get protective, especially at night when someone comes out of no where within a foot or two of her daddy, last thing I want to do is try to explain to a police officer why my dog bit little billy in the middle of the night, or mommom while she was trying to get to the bath house. Worst part about it is, we were one spot from the end of the row, all these people had to do was walk another 20ft and they could go around us....UGH lazy

We could come up with a whole new thread on rude people cutting through sites and have enough material to write a book. I know I have enough stuff for a few chapters myself including waking up at 1:00am to find a group sitting at my picnic table chit-chatting.

I also want to say there are still many nice manner campers out there. These are the people I want to invest my time with!


Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...
