In the short 9 months of RV'ing, I have found people in the camp grounds to be exceptionally friendly. My wife says I am gabby and make new friends all the time, but I am also a good listener.

I guess it's being one's self and treating people with respect.

I actually seen a full-timer complaining on the Facebook group about too many "of those weekender kids" in the pool this weekend. Makes me wanna slap 7 different kinds of dog (crap) outta some people sometimes

But if you don't report/complain, there is no chance of correcting the situation. Now, if you are staying in a park that caters to kids(Jellystone, etc.) you might have to expect some running, screaming kids. Remember, you were a kid once. I wouldn't confront the individuals so as not to start other problems. But if they apologize, I would certainly thank them.
I was worried about mine barking when I go out. Day after I arrived I saw the lady that manages the place walking her dog around on the road. I asked her and she said she walks around every day. She said my dog was fine, never heard her barking. If you are not aure ask your neighbors, they will tell you.

I have had a problem with barking dogs in the camper next to my site and I remember that and late at night I get out my silent dog whistle and let them hear what I hear all day. I love dogs and kids but how they act in public is how they act at home

You are so right. I use to sub at school and I would tell the kids I was Superman because I had X-Ray vision. I could be around the kids a little while and I knew what they were like at home

Ok, this one is has strayed over into subject matters that usually causes a lot of unnecessary strife on these forums. The topic was about making friends at the campground, not to vent about kids and/or fur kids.

Hopefully there has been enough replies for everyone including the OP to get a good feel for the original topic.

For forum harmony, the site team is going to close this one down now.
