At least it will make for a good supply of used campers. I've notice that these younger generations tend to give up on many things once they realize it involves some work.

Man we felt dumb! We beat feet to get moved the 3 sites down where our actual reservation was.
We also try and book the best sites and like you once found that several had already been taken. We took what ever we could and stayed for 5 days. During those days 3 of the 4 "reserved" campsites were unoccupied and the other on the last day.

The Ranger after looking on the reservation site said the occupants had stayed at other campgrounds where they had reserved other sites. Why can't they prevent campers from reserving more than one site at the same time?

As far as pets, doing their business", here are a couple of examples that have happened to us...

We were sitting at our site when a man was walking his dog by to the designated pet area. At that very moment his dog stopped and dropped a load. He apologized and picked it up. We replied that it was okay, we understand.

Another time and place a man was walking his dog when it did the same thing. He apologized and informed us that they were on their way back from the pet area and he had used the only bag he had on him to clean it up. He said he would return and pick it up. I told him that these things happen and my DW gave him a poop bag so he wouldn't have to walk all the way back. As he left he said he was going to carry more than one from now on.

Their actions of apologizing and attempts at rectifying the situations showed us their understanding of proper etiquette. Accidents happen, so as long as people are responsible and even learn from the incident we are okay with it. If they had acted as if it was their right then I probably would have been a little more difficult to deal with.

I raised dogs for 25 years. I raised kids that long. I never let either be unruly or inconsiderate to others, especially in public.......restaurant, or anywhere. I can't see just simply smiling while your dog takes a dump in front of me while I'm chillin' at my campsite. Apparently there are those that think my attitude is awful for that.

I don't understand that. But ok.

And no, I'd never hit anyone physically. But I'd ask them to move along. I see NO difference in your dog doing that on my campsite than on my lawn at home.

Am I that much in the minority????

If I went camping and the only thing I remember about the trip, is a story about someone else's dog poop. I would consider that a sh$tty trip. Hahaha....I'm sure we can all relax a little more.

It's remembered because these people acted responsible something you see less and less.

My favorite moment is about a NY state park that I started camping in when I was about 7. I knew this park inside and out. We booked one of our favorite sites 6 months in advance for a week stay. When we arrived, I checked in and proceeded to our site to set up. There was someone in our site and I noticed the site number signs had been switched with a undesirable site. I pulled out the campground map to make sure I was right. Back up to check in to find out what's up. The part time young man sheepishly admitted that the park manager changed the site numbers to accommodate a friend of his. We had to get the park superintendent involved so we could get our original site. Of course, it took 3-4 hours but I wasn't going to give up.
