"Quit picking the best sites for yourself" means that you have good taste and are obviously picking the sites that everyone wants. I was kidding.

Most of the campgrounds we visit are National, State and County parks with rules about generator hours, quiet hours usually 10-7, music can be played but not heard outside of your campsite and dogs must be on a 6 foot leash, never be left unattended or excessive barking. Yes, sometimes it's hard to find someone to enforce the rules.
My DW HATES when tent campers come next to us and have their car doors open blasting for lack of a better term music which can be heard 2 miles away while they set up camp.

The only problem with this is that everyone else thinks the rules don't apply to them. Their music is never too loud, their clock says 8:00 PM not 10:00 and their dog leash is @ 20' long and they don't know how to retract it.

I had a popup back in the 80's. Always had a good time and wanted to "go camping" again so bought a small TT. Have to agree, people have gone downhill from back then. No consideration for others is much more apparent. But we have been next to some nice folks too! Some were half our age or less. One bunch was having a pretty good time across the road from us. Three campsites wide! But they were all keeping each other in check. They even brought us a few of their Jello shots! 😃

We started as tent campers years and years ago. I never wanted to be close to anyone. If I wanted to be close I'd go to a hotel and use their pool. I'm from Texas...who would go to sleep in a tent when it's still 100 degrees outside. It doesn't cool down until about 3:00 a.m. and we only have about a month when it's what I consider cold.

I was laughing hysterically when I read this, as I could totally picture my wife and I in bed, after these neighbors had been keeping us up, now having to tear down in the pouring rain. We were both tent/Jeep campers back in our 20s, so soaked tents are no stranger to us. But now that we have a 5-er, it's funny how the "noisy neighbor tearing down camp in the rain" racket doesn't bother us (in fact would make us laugh,) but the "noisy neighbor drinking and partying" racket is intolerable.

Tent campers do tend to be younger, and younger adults party and drink more than middle aged or older adults do. Fact of life. See a tent camper...run like hell.
