In all the years I've camped only had one occasion that the people next to us were too loud. We left early the next morning about 4:30 A.M. and didn't hold back the noise packing up and making sure they knew why.

We were at a campground near Kingston Ont. several years ago. There was a small group of young people drinking and have fun. They were not making much noise till 3 am then the party started. Looked out and saw a group to 40 t0 50 people playing music and yelling at each other. Later found out the two boys at the site were grandsons of the owners and the security people did not want to get in trouble from the owners. After talking to the owner she advised me to call the OPP if they acted up the next night. The campers in our area of the CG got our own back. 7 am we were all up and making breakfast outside. The sound of pot and pans banging of tables and colman stoves had the 2 boys out of their tent and yelling at us to stop making so much noise because they were trying to sleep. They were told that at 3 in the morning when we were trying to sleep they did not care so why should we. The next night 11 pm when quite hour started they left their site and when to the overflow area to party. No one could hear them and everyone had a great time.

When I posted to this thread it was based on my own experience of some noisy campers.

My memories of noise ranges from not being able to hear a DVD while wearing headphones to waking up to find 7 teenagers with the giggles sitting at my picnic table chit-chatting at 1 am.

I should be able to watch a DVD and as well as being able to sleep at night. And fellow campers should be able to play music or sit by the fire & talk. But we need to have some sort of a middle ground if we want a win-win outcome.
Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...

They move around as there are some families that have been here 10-20 years. They take turns which site to party at. Common joke is I'll trade you hard wood for beer. The gals have too much beer and not enough wood. They tell me hard long lasting wood is tough to find if you are over 50. It's a hell of a fun place Turbs. AND the bar is within walking distance. Name of bar = pink diamond. Really!

Tolerating someone elses music is fine as long you it's somewhere in the realm of music you can live with. I don't think I could tolerate much Snoop Dog... Personaly I don't think even the neighbor next door should be able to hear your TV or Radio...Not being a prude I have 3 TV's and a Stereo and don't play them so loud that my neighbor could hear it.

Heck no absolutely no hard feelings at all. But the dog peeing on my new camper tire.....well....I love I would not make a super big issue out of it to the point of saying anything.....but I prolly would not be real happy about it to myself. The speeding car type of people I don't have much use for. Never could figure out....outside of emergency situations....why anyone staying in a campground is in a hurry to risk injuring a kid on a bike.....or a baby in a stroller or heck even a dog being walked. Makes no sense to me. Campgrounds are like countries all wrapped up into one small area. You look around and realize that people from far off places are sometimes very different than you are. But basically what it boils down that there are peopled with a lot......and people with very little common sense. What can you do. Deal with it the best way you can.....and try to enjoy yourself while doing it.

If you call the park office all they say is quiet time is at 1000 pm. But you can't contact anyone after 1000 PM and the park officers are never thru after that time. I camp mostly at Ohio State Parks and they used to be a quiet peaceful family atmosphere where you can get away from urban noise and enjoy a quiet campfire talking with your kids. Now it seems like they are a place for loud parties that go on until 3 or 4 in the morning and they usually leave their campsite a mess. Yes I am venting but this last weekend was terrible. Thanks for the internet therapy session.
Maybe it's an Ohio thing because I have noticed the same thing as well. It's a pet peeve of mine...sort of like the guy who runs his generator. In fact, I'd rather hear the generator. I'm not a fuddy duddy either as I like all sorts of music but for some reason I think of camping as a way to get away from it all and enjoy some quiet. For someone to play music loud enough for me to hear is rude...JMHO. Just beacuse they like to hear their music doesn't mean the whole campground does.

In Washington State, there's a law that says any vehicle's audio entertainment system must not be audible more than 50' away. With my audio response curve, "audible" to me may be loud to younger folks. We've invoked that law a couple of times in very crowded State Parks by going to talk to the Rangers.

Another way to combat the problem has been used for some time by 7-11 stores in our area who had trouble with large groups of teens congregating around the outside of the store. They started putting Grand Opera on the external speaker systems of the stores at fairly high levels. The crowds melted away like snow in the sunshine!

Living Forest Campground in Nanaimo BC have a no music policy. You are not allowed to have any music or tv volume outside your trailer. If you are listening to your music it has to be with headphones. This is a great policy because not everyone likes the music I play and I do not like the music that other people listen to. My biggest complaint is the people who sit around the fire all night drinking then at 2 in the morning they start to yell at each other. Not fighting but talking. You would think that they were miles apart and not only 2 feet from each other.
