I don't like all campgrounds, but i don't have to stay in one if i'm unhappy with the space. We are all free to leave at anytime and we can own a campground if we wish.

Love how today the phrase "a beverage of your choice", pretty much means an Adult Beverage. A 'read between the lines' thing.

Also don't allow Land Yachts & Mega Glampers in your campground if it's Small!!! (Oh i'm sorry I forgot it's not about the camping or the comfy sites)
IT'S JUST ABOUT THE MONEY!

Wow! Be honest. It doesn't matter the size of the campground or the rig. Some people would manage to hit the pedestal no matter how wide the site is.

They have the right to set up their campground in any manner that pleases them and maximizes their profits, including packing in the units so tight you need a shoehorn to open the door. It has nothing to do with "right" or "wrong". It's a business decision, nothing else.

You, on the other hand, have the right to take your camper and money down the road to whatever campground that pleases you. However, be prepared to pay extra $$$ for all that space. Everything has a price, including elbow room.

Absolutely! Some people think the world should revolve around them.

Probably from Australia! Even their water goes down the drain in the other direction.

The picture doesn't show anything wrong. I see a camper that is using the spot that he (I assume) paid for.

We backed into our site with someone next to use who pulled in backwards and was using our utilities. When I approached them, they said, "first come first serve". The ranger came down and told them to connect to their own utilities but they said it wouldn't reach. I offered them my extra hose and 30A extension. Two days later they took off with my items. Luckily I was able to get their information from the office. After first denying they took anything and me telling them I would report it stolen (with witnesses) and making their name public on all the message boards, they mailed the items to me. Cost them $35 extra dollars.

Narcissism is on the rise among campers!

Man, that's a sad commentary on what some of our fellow campers are coming to.
