  1. And, never, ever walk through someone’s campsite EVER. That is THE rudest thing you could ever do. It’s like walking into someone’s living room.

  2. Barb I am a full time rv’er, just curious why you think washing or flushing off your jet ski is not permitted in the campground?

    • For the same reason you shouldn’t wash your car or RV on the site…
      In many campgrounds, potable (fresh) water has to be treated and there is an additional cost associated with that! Other CGs have spring water and may be in limited supply…

  3. My two pet peeves! Pick up your dogs droppings/waste/poop! We have no pets and we pick up others dogs droppings! Also, many times people have walked through our camp. Such rude people. It makes me want to get yellow caution tape! We have only 2 outdoor chairs and one small barbecue, so our area is small.

  4. And those darned blasted outdoor lights on campers. Turn them off if it’s shining on another camper. Some are so bright we don’t need to turn on a light to go to the potty! I can’t believe that some are so ignorant to leave very bright lights on all night.
