Gina, if we had camp hosts like you at our favorite USNF campgrounds we would consider patronizing them again. Some of the worst camping etiquette we have ever experienced was by the hosts themselves. Generators running from 7am to 9 or 10pm. The hosts even constructed a dock(pier) on forest service waterfront. The dock wasn't for a boat or swimming but to mount their satellite dish. The hosts weren't able to provide the simplest answers regarding the local area and didn't even know where the nearest first service station was. Thankfully I did, and was able to register my complaints. Unfortunately the USFS has outsourced the management of our favored campgrounds, and closed many more.The management company doesn't appear to have many standards for their hosts here. We will continue to dispersal camp in the first for now.

All green of skin... 800 centuries ago, their bodily fluids include the birth of half-breeds. For the fundamental truth self-determination of the cosmos, for dark is the suede that mows like a harvest.

I am a big fan of the O Fortuna, from the Carmina Burana, but I would be afraid of a creepy kid in golden armor riding through the campground, laughing maniacally. Plus I believe that since 1981 it is a requirement that you must fly the Pendragon banner if you play it.

One of the biggest mistakes we ever made was camping on a private site over Memorial Day Weekend some years ago. Never again.

The campground manager was a veritable prison warder, reprimanding all and sundry for the most trivial offences. Parking in the wrong area while registering, fishing from the wrong bit of the shore and otherwise not following rules which I'm sure, she was just making up as she went along. turned dark and I suspect, she went off on her broomstick. Because she sure as heck wasn't enforcing the rules by now.

Country music* blaring from open truck doors, language that would have made a longshoreman blush, drunken yelling, even gunshots.

Around 2am, one brave soul called out "Can you guys keep it down a bit" only to be met with a barrage of foul-mouthed abuse and the music being turned up even louder. And this was from people well into their 30's and 40's.

The next day I drove over to the manager's office to lodge a complaint but before I could open my mouth, she shouted "You need to slow down!". There were no posted speed limits and I doubt I was doing more than 15mph.

I'm proud to say, I lost my temper and gave her a sample of what we'd endured all night.

* Yeah I know, that's an oxymoron.
Think before you speak and you'll find someone has changed the subject.

Sometimes it's an overzealous junior park person that causes the problem.
We made reservations to camp in Jasper. We told them that there would be two families and two vehicles..... No Problem, sir.
At the main gate we showed them the reservation info and pointed out that there were two vehicles....No problem, sir.
At the campground entrance we did the same and pointed out that there were TWO vehicles...No problem, sir.
Three hours later along comes a park attendant...".Excuse me sir you will have to remove a vehicle as you have one too many for the site."
"OK, where is your overflow parking area?"
"I'm sorry we don't have one. You will have to park on a street in town"'
"Then you will be personally responsible for any damage to my vehicle or theft from it, while it's in town and I am 3000 miles from my home?"
"Oh, no sir. That's not our responsibility.
"But your reservation desk, the main gate and the campground gate persons all gave their OK".
"Sir thet's not my problem, you will have two hours to remove your vehicle or have it towed".
Could I please speak with your supervisor?"
"No, sir, that's not possible. You have two hours.".... She left.

That's when the guy next door with a huge mobile came over and suggested that I park on his site well backed up against my area. My trunk lid was actually right beside my trailer hitch. ....The young lady came back and walked all around both sites for about five minutes before getting back into her truck and without another word, making a hasty retreat. About an hour later a senior official came by, stopped, looked the sites over and waved as he left.
I know that she had her rules to follow BUT, it did leave a bad taste in the mouth.

That's annoying when e'body doesnt know the (same) rules and then you get penalized for their lack of knowledge.
