We were at Ocean Lakes in Myrtle Beach in the middle of July where there is no peace and quiet. A lady to my right and behind asked me to turn my music down. I assure you I had it at a moderate volume. I got up and walked over to her site and I could barley hear it but I guess just the fact that they could hear it bothered them so rather than get in a ( ) match with them I turned it off. Later that day I could hear their music but I said nothing. My peace and quiet is listening to my music and sipping on a craft beer but I had to give that up to maintain civility in the CG. It always works both ways and there is always that person. Sometimes you are that person

I have mixed feeling about this thread because I've been on both sides--the "party site" and the "site that thinks the neighbors are too loud." I guess it depends on the setting. As stated earlier about NASCAR events--if you think you're going to a NASCAR event for a peaceful quiet camping experience, than you have unreasonable expectations--NASCAR is a big drinking party that has an inconvienient race thrown into the middle of it. So don't go to the infield if you're not willing to participate in the revelry, or at least put up with it. (This coming from a guy that does not go to NASCAR events, even though I live 15 miles from the Pocono track, which has the reputation for being the biggest infield party on the circuit.) The same holds true when we do our off-road events at the local off-road park: people go there to wheel, and partying after is almost 2nd nature. We actually set up our campers in a "courtyard" set-up (2 campers parallel and one blocking off the end) to keep the noise inside. I've already walked out into the lot with our party going (music, people talking, laughing, etc) and you can't hear anything. So we do try to be considerate.

Now if I'm in an RV park or CG, then it's way more toned-down, quite time type camping, and I will purposely walk away from my site to make sure the noise isn't noticeable. I think its about having consideration for your neighbors, but also considering your setting. If you're in Rome, you're gonna party like the Romans. But if I'm somewhere with a more resonable expectation of quiet, I'll keep it down, and I have no problem either telling people or being told to keep it down. If the alcohol-drinking people next to you bother you (at least in PA,) you have the option of using PA State Parks, which are (still) alcohol prohibited areas.

Common sense. Rational thought. Rare, I know.

Not to be diasagreeable, but leaving your dogs in a Camper is no different than leaving them in your house in the eyes of the law. If there is some type of neglect such as hot as Hades and no AC that is one thing. But a dog being in the camper is the same as being in your home. Noisey or not

Doesn't take away from the fact that it is rude to your fellow campers
