My personal experience is that it is not the sounds of children playing that bother me, it is the late night loud music, drinking, fireworks, and carrowsing being done by the over 18 crowd, especially at some of the more remote camping areas. On a recent whitewater canoeing trip last summer, we shared a wilderness camping site with another group who insisted on loud music and fireworks till all hours of the morning. I was sure they were going to set the forest on fire. Next time I will bring a set of construction ear plugs to try and at least address the noise issues.

Dave, I have had the same thing happen on the forestry road by Edson on the North Saskatchewan River. We used to camp the night there before heading off on a 3 day paddle to Rocky Mountain House. These loud partiers did not particularly like the loud noise we made at 7AM, though I am sure they quickly brushed it off and went back to sleep. Now, even if we get there later, we always paddle downstream for a bit to set up a quiet camp.

I assume you meant Nordegg rather than Edson, Jim. We had same issue as you on the FTR bridge on the North Sask R. Loud neighbors and no sleep made for a miserable night before starting to paddle next morning.

Yeah, Nordegg. You would think I would know better. I have only run that section of River 20 times in the last 30 years.
