Can't say we ever had a problem at any campgrounds we have stayed at in the 4 yrs we have been camping. Just one morning when some teenagers decided to crank up the geto blaster.
Just back from Allegany State Park in NY which was full of Ontario campers due to Victoria Day holiday and all were well behaved.

This is the same reason there are gated communities, upper end RV resorts, Homeowner Association and the like.
If people wouldn't be so damned inconsiderate, these would never exist.

Seem to me some folks weren't raised with a "Peach Switch" or a "Narrow Leather Belt".

"Time-Out" is fine, up to the age of One. After that, you've got to get serious if you want them to grow up respecting others. JMHO

Couldn't agree more with all the postings! It's no wonder the kids are so rude - the parents don't behave any better. Their attitudes say they are 'entitled'. What has happened to common courtesy? We actually have been very fortunate when camping at most of the VA State parks, but it seems like there is always at least one bad apple. Our last trip last Fall, there was a group of about 10 year olds who played footbal in the road by our site - not their sites, but ours. Lord knows where their parents were; they appeard to be there but they didn't seem to see their kids. The football was continually landing at our feet and our dog. When asked to move the game a little farther down the road, they just looked at us and kept right on playing. We're all for kids playing outdoors, but play in your own 'yards'! Then there are the people who go off and leave their dogs tied up at their site for the day. Of course the dogs will bark while they're gone. The older we get, the more we like pets. Now I've vented for the day - got it over with early.

And you want to know what is really scary? Every one of those morons has the right to vote!

I was just in New Orleans on business and on all of my flights I'd watch some jerk throw his carry-on in the overhead in row 8 while he sauntered back to row 19. Then the folks in row 8 had no place to put their carry-ons because lunkhead decided to use their space. What is wrong with people? Don't they think or are they not capable of thinking?

I am thankful that I have not encountered the kind of problems others have had. We camp a lot, including major holidays, and we have had only one negative experience. We always camp at state parks, and campers come in everything from minivans with the seats removed to large class A's, and people are having a good time without bothering others. That's why I camp.

Yep we have run into some people that have no consideration for other campers. This is why we have a few campgrounds that we visit often because these problems do not happen. This summer we are parking our rig from July 10 to Columbus day at wild duck campground in Scarborough Maine (Wild Duck Campground RV Park - Scarborough, Maine Campground). Campground is small but its quiet. We are going there this weekend.

It really is a shame that a trip to enjoy the great outdoors seems to always be disrupted by what I would call the "ME" people. There's no one else but ME and that's all that matters to ME. We went camping in November in Lancaster PA. We really love the area but while setting up a group of camper just below us started with the BOOM, BOOM big BASS thudd RAP music. Everyone is entitled to listen to what they want but when it's blasting to the point where it's louder than the TV inside my coach I get a little ticked. Someone must have complained because it only lasted about an hour but then the screaming to each other from the site to the roadways was even worse. The language wasn't very considerate of other either. After putting up with it for a while I went down and asked them to please watch the language as well as informing them that the screaming was a bit disturbing. The reply I received was "Sorry we didn't realize we were that loud" I can only figure it's an everyday thing with them but they were better after that.
