RV campsite space holder

Newbie question here: We have a class C without any toad so when we go out to sightsee we must take the class C. I'm concerned that someone will take our campsite while we are out sightseeing. What is a good method to show that the spot is taken?

Thanks!

Thanks for the response. I thought some public campgrounds are first come first serve, so I didn't want to return and find someone in our spot. Not a real big problem unless there are no other spots available.

We got a 'campsite occupied' sign but have never had to use it.

We put up a couple of folding chairs near the entrance which seems to be a universal sign that the site is occupied. We usually leave the electric cord locked to the power post and usually just unhook the water line and leave it connected to the faucet. I guess it could get stolen, but we've never had a problem (knock on wood). When we get back, it's simple to reconnect to the coach.

At least every public camp I’ve been too. When you pay there is a thing to hang on the post that marks the site saying it’s been paid for and who paid for it

...and I might add, how long it's paid through. I've always referred the "thing" as a camping permit. Walk-in sites are first come, first served. Majority of SP sites are reservable through Reserve America.com

Cheap pup tent from Walmart. That way no one will think you just drove off and left your chairs.

Most of the State Parks in Georgia are first come first served. However, they do issue you the little tag to put on the site marker post and most people leave a couple of things in the site to show they are coming back. I have never heard of or seen anyone move the items or take them.

no campground is going to allow someone to 'steal' your site, if you already PAID for it. If you are at a place that allows for 'pick your own site', then they will provide you a receipt/marker to put on the post in front of the site.

no worries. site 'stealers' are very, very rare : )

Here in Ontario each provincial park issues you a permit that you affix to the holder at the front of the site. It clearly shows your departure date. Sites are electric only so no hoses to unhook. We just unplug and drive away. Everything stays in the campsite. In over 40 years we have never had anything touched. We've done the same in Georgia New York State and Florida with the same outcome.
