Where we were this weekend (a State Park) there was little choice by evening as to what to do with your bagged garbage.

The caretakers seemed to only come through once a day....on a holiday weekend????...and by evening the few cans were packed full and people were placing the bags by the cans. And these people claim they have a very bad raccoon problem....ya think?

The other State Park we've gone to has very prompt garbage collection...*by the hosts* least twice a day.

Garbage was collected by paid state workers at the one we stayed in this weekend.

Go figger.


If age is a state of mind, and I've lost my mind, I'm AGELESS, right?

Castaways in Ocean City MD has curbside pickup. It took me by surprised the first time I saw it. I'm one that normally takes trash out (to a dumpster when available) in the evening, it helps to keep critters away.

We stayed in that same campground! I remember the bags! That was a great KOA!

It all depends on the cg - so I always ask when we check in so I know. The beach campground we frequent goes around and picks up the trash bags at the site around noon. They also have a truck at the cg store to throw it into if you don't want to leave it at your site (which is a good idea as the pesky seagulls love to raid it - just hate to come back from the beach and find your trash strewn all about). The Maryland state parks, you have to take it to the dumpster.

Our CG has curbside pick-up daily, both for the seasonal and non-seasonal areas. They also have a central dumpster if you want to do your own.

Gettysburg KOA has noon trash pickup but the trash was picked up almost immediately as the campground personnel were always driving around working on the campground. The staff was awesome.

I reported two poison ivy spots and the staff (John) beat me back to the campsite. He pulled the vines and made sure I was happy that the site was clear before he left.

It puts it in a better perspective knowing this is a common practice, although I've been all over Michigan, Ontario, Indiana, and Ohio (oh plz, Ohio LOL)....and have never seen this before.

p.s. Anytime I mention OHIO, I have to give a's a Michigan/Ohio thing...just so ya know...mean it in a spirit of rivalry. But honestly, Ohio? LMAO.
