Been reading the posts on this threads, reminds me of a camping trip last year at a state park nearby. We were camping in our PUP, a group came in and began setting up camp across the road from us. They parked their vehicles in rear of the spot, started putting up tents and then the big covering. Too many people on a spot..and children, this was going to be a noisy night...wonder why they parked their vehicles with no way to get them out? Well, it started raining..and then....BOOM the lightening bolt hit behind them. In just a very few minutes the camp site was vacant! Someone above saved us from a noisy night. I respect my neighbors when camping and keep the music low. My Puma has a good design on the speaker system. I can listen to the outside speakers without them blaring all over. As I mentioned, I respect my fellow campers and I hope they respect my rights. Yes, I am retired, don't stay up all night. I have been camping since I was about 5 years old, I was taught by my parents to respect other people rights. I have been trying to do this, 57 years later. I often wonder about the new generation and the values that have been instilled in them.

If its too loud, you're too old...

You know, going deaf in my old age might be a good thing.

That said, I prefer camping out in the middle of nowhere where I can be the loud obnoxious drunk and not bother another living soul.

I for one do not consider myself too old. Check out my login name. My choice in music is not everyone else's and must be turned up loud to be appreciated, yet, I am respectful enough not to play it thinking everyone else in the campground will enjoy it too. That's my beef with playing music in the campground.

If your neighbors can hear your music you are playing it too loud. I don't go camping to listen to other people's music and don't force other campers to listen to mine. It's a respect thing, something we are seeing less and less of.

X2...that was the point I was trying to make but Len and Cheri said it much more succinctly.

I have had my sound loud at night when we had the children trick and treating for Halloween. It was spooky sounds and we only had it playing for 1/2 hour while the children went around. If we are playing music outside it can only be heard while sitting below the speakers. If we move off the deck you can not hear our music.

It is annoying to hear other people's music. I love listening to music while camping, but very considerate about how loud it is. But I think what annoys me more, is people sitting around a campfire 4 sites from you carrying on conversation like it's 4pm at 2am!
