I agree. Most perpendicular driveways even have aprons. The CG's that did this made a bad cost cutting decision. So how about they step up and correct it by at least filling the ruts on either side with some gravel? It's just not esthetically pleasing to have almost every site with 2 large mudholes bordering the street. Even though the kids on bikes dig it. ;-)

Those aren't mud holes. Those are campground locators

Speaking of pet peeves, you gotta wonder who designed the campsites that have the table and firepit and bbq on the opposite side of your camper from where your awning, door, and steps are going to be once you set up.

Some of those perpendicular drives would take a paving crew just a couple of hours to improve.
I think the campgrounds with sites allover the place are the worse.We went to check out a state campground around the Sebring, FL. Glad I went in the car first. The campground map was terrible and everyone was parked in every which way you could imagine. What a cluster...

Pet peeve... CG's with no trees! Stayed at one in Arkansas, you could see every camper from anywhere in the CG.

I know there are budget constraints at public campgrounds but I find it hard to believe they canít make a plan for the future to add aprons to the entrance of these campsites.

Itís even dumber to put a dumpster directly across from a campsite.

Looking at your second picture, I could not help but wonder under what circumstances could cause those drag marks in the asphalt.

Those aren't yours - they're your neighbors!

This drives me crazy. Especially when they see you trying to maneuver a 40 ft monster around it and they just sit and watch you.
