If their noise bothers you, moving would be the correct way to handle it. One of the things about disbursed camping is that there ARE no rules and though MOST will not set up right on top of another camper, there are some who will so I'm always prepared to either ask them to move or be prepared to do so myself. What they are doing would be considered somewhat impolite but not against the rules.

That's why I won't go near places like Q. You either like that lifestyle or you don't. I don't.


X2; we have no understanding of the allure that Q seems to have for so many people. At least you'll never have to worry about us camping near you. Different strokes for different folks.

What's a conversation going to cost you........talk to them.

If the conversation goes nowhere........then you can weigh your options.

But you are in Q and could end up moving & moving & moving & leaving....

When we boondock it's to get AWAY.......Q doesn't fit.

If they park too close just plug into one of their outside outlets next time they start their genny. That ought to run 'em off.


LOL!!! That's a good one.

Have a radio set up outside with speakers pointed towards the location where someone might show up and camp. As soon as they show up start playing opera at as loud a volume as possible. They might think twice about that spot.

To add a little flair to your show get one of these opera costumes with the horns and a staff or spear and walk around your RV pretending that you are singing along with the music. Seeing and hearing your show they will probably move along.



But you might find someone that actually likes opera and then you are stuck with them as neighbors.

When they pull up first conversation Hello my name is (insert name here) and yours. Well Bill (or whoever) I kinda have to be forward about the fact I like my privacey as well as quiet serounding and untill I pass my anger management classes I think it is best if it stays that way. I also want you to no Bill I don't have a problem going back to jail. Now you have a great time and keep safe.

To the OP, I understand your frustration and have had the same thing happen when we camp out in the bush. Not much can be done, but wouldn't it be fun to be able to do something to help them choose a sight a bit further away?

What about getting a bigger generator than them? Turn it on when they shut theirs down.

Ever seen those cardboard cutouts of police officers holding radar guns and cardboard cutouts of police cars that are used to slow traffic down. How about cardboard cutouts of huge, noisy generators, mean-looking dogs or even large groups of kids that could be set around your site to cause others to think twice about setting up close by?

LOL

Roll wheels and find another quiet site and hope noone else follows you with the same idea.

Move.

I'm here too, and have unfortunately picked up neighbors with a dog. It barks at dawn. They look like bums.

I'm gone.


You're in Quartzite, not Outdoor Resorts.

Move.........and be prepared to move again......and again if necessary.

Yeah, agreed. This situation is unusual, I've never had this happen at Q. They must be newbies. Whether a couple posters 'understand' the Q is irrelevant.

Moving is your only option as I see it.
