All the above are useful. If someone really wants your spot, they will park their lazy body in your selected spot.

We like to believe that almost all campers are honest. We used to travel 100% by motorcycle and if we wanted to tour the area without loosing our spot. We sewed a bright orange cloth about 24" x 24" with a small round grommet in the corners. Placed a sturdy wire tent stake in the grommet. Painted a message on the middle TAKEN by Gene and Lanida. Have not lost a sign yet.

We leave lawn chairs and table cloth and have never had an invasion.

Harvey51 X 2 Plus a small length of chain to chain chair to table. Does keep the folks next door from 'borrowong' your chairs.

Not sure what the problem is here. If I return to a site that I have paid for and is posted as mine regardless of what I have left behind, the trespassers are leaving in one of two ways... Immediately or in handcuffs. Heaven help them if anything of mine is missing.

I have never had this problem and probably never will but come on now folks, a little common sense and a phone call to the authorities will make this problem disappear. [emoticon]

I would leave a slowly leaking portable sewage tote right in the middle of the site. It would be full of pure water, of course.

How could it be that simple? Personally I would rather worry to no end before every trip.

At government operated campgrounds be they Fed/ACOE, State, County, etc, youalways some type of administration / enforcement available be it campground hosts, Park Rangers, etc. They may or may not be full time on site, but a phone call or short drive will get them on the issue should it occur.

Now if Boondocking on BLM or Forest Service land out in the sticks somewhere, then you're on your own I guess. IF it's cause to worry don't put yourself in the situation to begin with.

It is only posted if tag still on the post. We have seen groups of youths taking tags off and destroying them. By the time the ranger/host gets there they are long gone. ( National/State parks, Ca)
