Some of the posts made good points such as Nascar. It would be obvious that there will be a lot of partying going on and assumed that noise is expected. We pick and choose where we go and often learn while at a campground whether or not we will return. There is a campground in Myrtle Beach that has a golf cart parade for about 3 hrs in the evening. We didn't like it and choose not to return. I'm respectful of what other campers are doing but when it's quiet time hours. Then it's quiet time and that should be respected. I've been on that end. We put up a big screen and watch movies at our site. Some campers in the next site complained. Management didn't have a problem with it but at the start of quiet hours I was asked to turn it off which we did. However, those that complained sat out for about 3 hours drinking and carrying on. We said nothing. Guess you just have to pick and choose your battles.

We were camping up in the Oregon high country one time;; in a state run campground, and an altercation between neighbors ended up in guns being involved. long story short, Sheriff got involved and a bunch of arrests were made. Thankfully I was on the lake with my two boys when it finally blew up as our site was right in between the involved parties.

We were in a Canyon, of those Yogi parks. I have to say their staff handled it really well, or really well to my standards. Really loud group of drunks, with teens, same old situation we all complain about. The Yogi staff came in, confronted the group about rules, etc. told them to leave or be escorted out by police. They left, we cheered.

Way back in the day when there was no such thing as a cell phone:

Our 1st camper was a Coleman pup. We stayed in a state park where the loops backed up to another loop. Behind us was a group of boys who basically were sleeping in their cars at their site. I guess they were trying to impress each other with their car stereos, all thru the night. As most of you know, a pup doesn't block any noise out, you hear everything. The first night we endured the noise. After returning to our site from a day at the waterpark, as I open the door of our van, I heard the music. Like I said about the cell phone, today I'd just call the office and complain. But there was no cell phone. So I drove to the park office and told them I had heard it all last night but I wasn't going to hear it tonight. Well, before I could get back to our site, the ranger had beaten me back and told them to turn it off or they were out of there. The ranger told me he would be patrolling throughout the night and if I had any more problems, just let them know.

Maybe that is what the OP should have done.

I did report it and management took care of it. That said the next night rather than make noise outside, the music was so loud in their RV I had trouble hearing my own TV. They left the next morning after letting their dog poop by the office without bothering to pick it up.

My late brother-in-law had this problem. We were all attending a family reunion at a State Park in western Colorado. We were parked across the road from my wife's sister and her husband. They were in a Winnebago and we were in a Shasta. Some people moved into the space next to sister-in-law's rig and were quiet. Until sundown. The park had 10:00 all quiet rules but that didn't matter. They started partying, drinking, loud music, loud laughter, you name it. Nothing would get them to shut up and no Rangers were available after 10:00. So the Blozo Brigade partied until 0400 then quit. So, in the morning, we all get up, brew coffee and about 10:00 am, the sister-in-law and husband fire up a generator to charge the battery (allowed). You had to be right up on it to hear anything it was so quiet. All hell broke loose in the Blozo Brigade Party Camp!!! They came out cursing, swearing, threatening body harm against my brother-in-law. Someone called the Ranger, who after hearing both sides, ticketed the Blozo Brigade and ordered them to leave immediately. Apparently, this was a common modus opperendi with these boobs and the Ranger knew them well. He told us later that they had been banned from other parks for the same activities and would be banned from that one as well.

This stuff definitely sucks. We have all been there but I think it is just the price we pay to camp with the public. Dealings with the public can occasionally be difficult.

I camp at Ontario Provincial parks, can not see the neighbors through all the trees. In all my 40 plus years of camping never once had an issue at provincial parks. After May 24, our first long weekend, when iIwas a kid used to make a fortune collecting beer bottles though!

I have not heard that in more than 30 years. Awesome!
When they say choose your weapon, I am going to fire that up on the music box.

Maybe I should just play that over and over 24/7. Might not have neighbors...
