A good 15 years or more ago I & several other ladies had a pack of Girl Guides in group cammping at a Prov.Park when 2 of the girls --1 of them my oldest---came to use & said there was a man in the ladies shower soooo 2 leaders troop off to the showers==oh yha there was a man there but he was no alone --boy were their faces red--(ours too) we follow them to their campsite were there were many people both adult & kids -- then we reported to office -- ranger got back to us that this was not going to be happening again! we asumed they got kicked out

the only other thing that has happent to us,-- was before radio free sites when the kids were small & we camped with a tent-- some people have no brains -or no manners!!!
I belive it was Six Mile Prov.Park & the song was "Take this Job & Shove it" ( how long ago was that?)

we are trying this winter to find some maps of Crownland were we can camp come summer
even the MNR is not sure were(or how) to get the maps!

We were camping near Mantua, Utah in the Box Elder Campground. A Mormon youth group settled into the campground and they were so noisy that we decided to pull up stakes and boondock about a half mile down the mountain.

We STILL heard them all night. The screeching sounded like a pagan sacrifice ritual. If I hadn't grown up Mormon, I would have thought the strangest things about the religion.

We were at a campground that had a seasonable behind us with two really loud barking howling basset hounds half the night.....Next day when those idiots took them out I barked at the dogs and got them going immediately...she asked why I was stirring up their dogs....I told her to tire them out early.........she put them in that night..

There were no other spots to move to, so we went and complained to the office, got our money back and left.

I run into rude neighbors more in private campgrounds so we tend to camp in state parks where the rangers make the rounds and enforce the laws, at least in MN state parks.
Nancy, I would have complained and asked the park people to kick them out before I left, guess who wins there, the ignorant SOB's that are disturbing everyone else. seems they always get to do whatever they please with no consequences. no way would I leave and let them continue. thats awful

I know this doesn't exactly fit the topic but in over 50 yrs. of camping from Wi to Ca. and many places in between I have never had a camping experience to remotely compare to any previously mentioned, hoping it stays that way...

We twice had a very large and noisy party on the other side of my back fence until 3am. There were beer cans and cigar buts thrown in my pool and lights shining in my window... on a work night!
After the second time, I got up at 6AM to go to work. On the way out of the house, I took a boom box and a weed whacker motor to my back fence. The Boom Box was set on very loud Mexican Polkas and the weed whacker motor was set on WOT! I hung them both on the fence and left for work.
Great therapy for hangovers

By contrast: summer of 2010 we were camped in one of the campgrounds in Glacier Nat Park. Next to us was a Boy Scout troup and there was another across from us. ALL were very quiet and respectful. Nice to see.

We were camping at Itasca State park and our site was along the road that goes to the bath room. Many people lazy people cut through our site despite our asking them not to. Even walking between us and the campfire.
The worst one was Temprence river State park, and the park staff. We were staying there for 4 days and before we left the engine in the Suburban went out. We towed our Buro with a 4 cyl Sonoma and drove a second car. We had the largest site there. At that time my back problems were at there worst so I put the firewood in bigger bags in the pickup a little at a time and also the same with the cooler. The park ranger would not let us keep a second car at the site, so I had to lift a full 75 qt cooler in and out of the pickup every day and unload 30 gallon bags of oak lumber scraps from the truck. You could still have parked a 40' moter home in there on the pad with our two cars, Burro and tent and had room left over but the rangers said two cars was crowded. Yet the site across from us was for a 35' or so rig and there was a 40' motor home and large fishing boat there and the site to the left of us had the largest motor home I've seen and an enclosed car trailer in a 40' site. I missed 2 week of work from lugging the cooler and tubs of cooking stuff and we stay at private camp crounds now when we go to the north shore.

At that point, Jim, you produce medical proof and call upon the Americans with Disabilities Act. That kind of BS is what the law was passed to prevent.

A couple of years ago we were tent camping and had some party people setup a near us. Late at night, from 10:00 to 2:00, they were all around the fire and as they got drunker they started doing the soft yelling to each other across the fire, followed by high pitched laughing. A couple of motor homes next to them asked if they could quite it down, which worked for a good 2 minutes. They were at a site that had a trail to the bathrooms, so the next morning I stood at one side of their site while my wife was near the restroom and asked her how she slept last night. I had to sort of yell to have her hear, but we did have a great conversation. As I passed by the other neighbors they gave me a smile and started making a lot of noise making their breakfast outside, by banging pans and talking loud. It didn't take long until we heard groans and complaining from the party peoples tents on how noisy everyone was. As we went back to our site, it looked like even the kids were getting into the jest of it by playing on the street in front of them. I'm sure the parents asked them to be quiet, but kids will be kids.

CindyL we did take pictures and took down names and made notes, but when I got home I decided you can''t you can't fix peoples lack of common sense and after that I finally found a doctor that fixed all of my back issues with exercise which I will have to do the rest of my life ( I feel 20 years younger ) . We also stay at a wonderful private ground and reserve way in advance the site that is on a rock overlooking lake Superior. So in the end we are better off, and funny thing last year we stayed at the other camp ground in Itasca state park and had the same trouble with people two lazy to walk 5 more sites away to the path to the bath rooms, It must be something unique to that park.

Only twice in 40 years of camping have I had to deal with neighbor campers that would not listen to reason. One fellow ran a generator almost the entire night. When we asked him to give us a break he just responded with a litany of foul language. Early in the morning I made some adjustments to the carb on his generator. He didn't (couldn't) use it any more that weekend.
Another time we had some young adult campers getting drunk and playing loud music most of the night. They just ignored us when we asked for them to quiet down. The following morning, when they were very hungover I made sure my son's two cycle dirt bike rattled their tents.
