Try putting out chairs, firewood, etc. to make it look like someone has already taken the spots next to you. I am not saying cause folks trouble if the CG is getting full, but when I am in an empty, dispersed camping area I do not like noisy people underfoot. I have had the "come to Jesus" talk with rude people a couple of times and it is just easier to head off the situation before it happens.

One suggestion to decrease the campers in ur immediate vicinity.....develop a leak in your sewer hose. They won't be able to pack up fast enough. The ambrosia is unlike any other. :-)

Be nice....... too nice

Be nice to your neighbors - your new best friends. Before they get unloaded, go over & introduce yourself. "Where you from? Do you know the ________'s from there? Need any help setting up? We usually do it like this. Here's the best way to _____. You don't drink do you? Play any of that snake crawling music? You're welcome to join us at church on Sunday morning... (helps if you can dial up a gospel station on the radio before you go over at a nice moderate level). (Not that there's anything wrong with that )
Make it their idea to pick another site. ;-)

Another option would be to quit picking the best sites for yourself. :-P

Happened to my grandson and I when we were individual tent camping this past month. Didn't take the 5th wheel this trip to get back to nature! Campground was 95% empty yet two women with 6 kids, 2 cars, and later 2 husbands (?) with yet another car set up on the site beside us! So at 10:30 at night their rug rats were still up running around screaming with lots of energy! Don't people put their kids to bed at a reasonable hour anymore? PS - real genuine campers too - not! - every meal they loaded up a vehicle or two and went somewhere (restaurant) to eat. One time brought back the leftover pizza judging by the pizza box brought home! Totally clueless! Thank goodness the kids wore them self out so next night was quieter. I did talk to the park staff as the had too many people and too many vehicles! Why don't people like this camp in their backyards or at least think a bit outside of themselves and choose a remote site or group camping site? STUPID OR WHAT?!

How about when you go to a Store in your RV and Park all the way out in never neverland and someone parks next to you!
I will post a pic next time I go to a store in the RV! before and after shopping. LOL

Lets recap;

"have noticed that tent campers are much more noisy then trailer campers and like to stay up all night ". possibly they just are getting away from it all, and think they are in the wilderness

"have noticed that tent campers are much more noisy then trailer campers and like to stay up all night ". Tell tale sign is how much "stuff" they bring.

"I was a tent camper once... 30 years ago. Much younger, louder and dumber then."
I agree, youth seems to bring that out in us more than later in life.

"And the tent area is where most the drunken brawls are too!" That my friend is the best comment yet. Interesting if there is an analogy with trailer parks. Close proximity, more interaction, more confrontation, hmm.

"Quite frustrating when the "owners" leave them tied up outside the TT barking for hours while they take off somewhere!" - non-dog owners would tend to agree with that statement over dog owners.

"the guy who brings the leaf blower (gas powered) to clean up his campsite. I can understand doing it one time when you first get there (actually I can't but tolerate it). But every day at nap time?? Why can't people respect the tranquility of the woods and outdoors?"
THAT is the second best one. Might just be a TYPE A personality.

"Next time take hot dogs and benedril feed to dogs if owners leave they will have nice sleep"
I would say something, BUT...lol So, it makes em sleepy, who knew. I'm kidding, relax.

"Another option would be to quit picking the best sites for yourself. :-P ". possibly you might be having a bad day. I have no idea what that meant. Whew!

You think it's bad now, you have no idea whats comming!
