Loudest thing in my RV park..........................Drunk women laughing late into the late nite. Yes the new campers have big screen tvs, surround sound stereo with sub woofers, and outside speakers. The campsites that have "girls only weekend" win the award for screw quiet time rules. Their husbands and boyfriends aren't around so they are having a blast.

About that "mr. Terier sir" - Just letting you know that I'm not a guy so think Pink!

Not sure what was in my post that didn't sit well. You are saying that you should be able to enjoy your trip and I am saying I would like to do the same. Perhaps you missed the key part regarding "to the point that I cannot enjoy my time"? And if you didn't miss it... well, we all have our views for various reasons.

I love it when people are outside enjoying the campfire or whatever but let's admit that not all people make good campsite neighbors.

Wow! So your saying that if other campers don't like your noise, find somewhere else to go? The way I see it is, if YOU got your own 40 acre lot, you could be as noisy as you want and not bother anyone. Or, find a private campground that allows being loud all night. I don't mind people having a good time and enjoying each other's company, that is what camping is all about. I love the sounds of people and families having conversations, playing and connecting. But it is no different than being at home, you have to be respectful of your neighbors, it is the civil thing to do. State parks have rules, one of them being quiet time is after 1000 pm (at least in Ohio Parks) But, when others play music so loud i can hear it from 80 sites down, or keep going after the quiet time, that is when it is being rude and inconsiderate of others. But to some, the rules don't matter as long as they are having a good time. They have rules for a reason, so we can all get along and enjoy camping.

No....I don't recall typing that.....and I re-read my post....and did not read it in there like that neither. Never said that I was a noisemaker neither. Just a guy with a family and camper and enjoy the outdoors. I don't mind people having a good time as long as it is during normal hours....and does not hinder the time of others. I don't particularly care for chain saws running 2 doors down in my neighborhood where I live at 9:00 in the morning on a Sunday......or Hammers pounding on a Saturday morning with the guy across the street building a pole barn. But I deal with it....because it might be me cutting wood a month later....or me building a shed a year later. Things that you may find annoying of other people on your camp outings.....may not seem so annoying to the next guy. Maybe you are driving back to your camp later than normal after dark on a particular night that I am already in bed relaxing and your headlights pass thru my window and awake me. Does that give me the right to pound on your door 5 minutes later and tell you I did not appreciate it? No....absolutely not. For one I would be understanding....and realize that we all have our own things going on. Nowhere in my post did I promote carousing all night beating on pots and pans outside your camper window. But during daylight hours.....If my son and I are out throwing the football or frisbee around and one should happen to stray onto your lot.....and you give me crap about it......just remember it works both ways. I treat the people on the lots each side of me like I treat my neighbors at home. Borrow anything I have in my garage if you need it.....bring it back when you are done. If its broke buy me a new one. When its my turn in need....open your garage to me.....if its not open to me......don't ask to borrow anything from me. Same goes at the campground. If you wanna be friendly....I will as well. If you wanna gripe about kids playing at 4:00 in the afternoon and it is affecting your nap time. Guess what....turn your A/C on and drown out the noise.....or go to the office and asked to be moved. We were all kids once....and thats what kids do....play and have fun.

Terier....quite honestly.....there was nothing in your post that I took personal....hence my remark....about how at times I wish I too had a 40 acre parcel of land all to myself. Was merely stating....or trying to get the point across....that different people camp for different reasons. Someday...My wife and I want to retire and travel across the U.S. with our truck and camper. At that point my RV interests will have changed more to along the lines of peace and quiet.....and you certainly won't see me camping at a State Park on a holiday weekend or at a campground situated around a Nascar event. I will be selective and seek out quieter camping terrain. Camping is sorta like being a chameleon.....sometimes you have to change a little to match your surroundings. Its called tolerance. I try not to judge other people....and get along with all. In my opinion....I would rather be camping and deal with a barking dog.....than be home doing nothing. Yes I am a new member....and not here to ruffle any feathers.

Terrier, just wanted to let you know I thought you handled his remarks well. What I read of his remarks "sounded" a bit rude to me. Then I could see from his other posts, that wasn't what he meant.

Grey, hopefully we can shake hands and say things are cool and we are "discussing". When I started this thread, I didn't say anything about kids being loud by playing, cars going by or a stray football landing in my camp site.I think it is great that you are spending time with your kids as I have done the same. My gripe was with loud music, especially if it goes after the posted quiet hours. The culprits usually don't have kids, speed thru the campground, burn trash or nail ridden wood (that they leave for the next occupants to clean up so their kids don't get nails in their feet) and leave the camp site littered with red solo cups and trash. I think this thread is getting a little blown out of proportion to includes families and friends having fun. I don't mind kids in my site, dogs peeing on my tires, people stopping by and talking or the occassional stray toy flying by. Wanting other visitors to obey the rules and respect others is all I was trying to express. You said above exactly how I feel... "I don't mind people having a good time as long as it is during normal hours....and does not hinder the time of others". Hope we're golden and no bad feelings.
