Jetboater,

When I pull into a RV park I always leave my rig at the registration spot and then walk to actually see the site before pulling into it. If I see the things you are describing, I walk back tell the management to take care of the issues before you pay your money.


X2! I look at several other things, too... like satellite access through the trees, party animals in close proximity, electrical functioning properly. All things are far easier to resolve before moving onto a site.

One more thing to look for after seeing a recent post: Being sure I'm not under a transformer!

The sites we had in WI were large sites.He didn't want his toad blocking his view from his patio so he thought 5' of our site was good for the front of his car.Also the firepits are set in the ground so no way to move it.
If sites were close I wouldn't of even thought about a fire.


Other half is camping with the angels,Riding alone for now.

You need to rethink the CG's you are visiting.

Thanks for all the replys.Ya the Jellystone parks are not my favorite places to stay.I would have asked for another site but none were open.IF i ever go back,and thats a huge IF,we found sites on a hill in the woods that offer trees for a little cusion from the neighbors.Far from the lake but i believe it would be a nicer atmosphere.I do like the idea of walking in and seeing before paying.I will start doing that from now on and if nothing works ill just pull out and find someplace else.

Thanks again for all the replys.

I'd have no problems telling anyone to get their stuff out of MY site. They can grumble all weekend long for all I care.


This is what I would do as well. I don't feel bad asking someone to move if they are obviously on my site, particularly if it is a small site to begin with. They know better, so if they are irritated with my asking them to move, oh well.

I would rather ask that they move then have bad feelings about it all weekend and not do anything.

Honestly...I would worry about coming back to slashed tires, broken windows, contaminated water tanks, or my dump valves pulled.

Thanks again everyone.from now on we will take a different approach to our camping.I was brought up in a way to turn my head alot of the times and i guess when i was younger it worked.Time has changed and i think people have too.I think i seen in the Jellystone store that a seasonal site on the water was 2400 dollars plus electric so i guess this person thought they would squeeze every inch they could.Oh well its over and done now,leason learned.We will have to find better CGs in the future and hope for the best.All of your comments have helped and will be put to use on our next trip.Might come down to maybe im a boondocking kind of guy.Pack me, the wife,kids and the dogs and find a nice empty quiet place,lol.I can tell you it will not keep us from camping and we will continue to go out and have fun.Sooner or later we will stay next to some great people and that one time will make up for all the bad times.Hope to see some of you on the road,thanx again

Tell them to move off your site. If they dont get the park management to tell them. You are paying for thr space.

Absolutely, stay at campgrounds, not parking lots. If I can throw a rock and hit my neighbor's TT, then they are too close. (No, I don't actually throw rocks at them).
