Looking at the rules (Chapter Contents), I think this ranger may be digging too deep into the concession area of the rules. But, I would send an email out to get clarification on this.

As a State Park Camp Host

In Illinois, I can tell you that we would stop the tow/ repair vehicle as they were coming into the park to 1. Verify their mission, 2. Get some proper ID, and then 3. Give them a map to the site.

There are no regs about outside service vehicles requiring a permit but for the protection of our other campers we would want to know who they are and who they are coming in to service. Then we would give them all the help they need to solve our campers problem.

The OP did say the camp host came down and was apprised of the situation. While I think this situation was blown out of proportion by all involved I do wonder why the ranger felt the need to assert his authority when the camp host was already involved. I live about 10 miles from this cg and was shocked there was a ranger there at all. Must of been his yearly visit and he had to make it worth his while?

Then another batch of RVers have to put their two cents in on how they would handle the situation. Some even inferring that this camper should have complained to the park rangers superiors just because the ranger took the time to explain to the camper that the state park they were in had certain regulations.
Regulations that were most likely listed in the state parks visitor manual, had the camper taken the time to read it.

If this is an example of how the average RVer acts in real life. maybe Murelene and I should just keep to ourselves and steer clear of other campers when we visit state park campgrounds.

I guess some people are never happy unless they have something to complain about

Opinions are like butt holes, everyone has one and none are the same.

just my two cents worth
Gee, it seems to me that this forum is about campers helping campers. I don't get the part about the other campers putting in their two cents as seemingly being some sort of problem.

Well, since Fire and Rescue Trucks are classified as "Emregency Vehicles", not "Commercial" vehicles then no, the hang tag rules don't apply.

In California tow trucks are not allowed to drive around and solicit services to anyone. Most states have this rule. This is to protect people from being gouged by cons.

It appears that after reading some of the new Mexico state campground rules that it seems simple enough that the commercial driver (tow truck/tire dude) needed to stop and get a no fee day use pass. This is for a specific event (repairing a tire at B56 and then leaving the campground). It says specifically that the commercial/contractors are not allowed uses of any other facilities on the grounds (lake, etc) without paying fees. It sounds like to me they may have had a problem with free loaders driving their work trucks into the parks and not paying the fees. Seems pretty legit to me.


(And this is not directed to youroo) but there seem to be a lot of people on this forum that have thin skin and have their feelings hurt for no reason. Rules are rules. They are posted either o a board, in a pamphlet, or online. If people choose to ignore the posted rules, get called out on it, plead ignorance, and then whine to their friends about their mistreatment because THEY cant understand or follow the rules is plain silly. (And that wasn't directed to the OP either).

I got yelled at for driving 8 MPH in a park when the posted speed limit was 5 MPH. I said sorry and adjusted my speed accordingly. When I was at another park operated by the same company, there were people passing me at 30 MPH, unsafely, with no one enforcing the 5MPH limit. I actually missed that lady that yelled at me at the first park. Wished she was at that one.

Enjoy camping people!
