The OP mentions an Email was sent, I assume before his arrival, informing him of reduced quiet hours. What else did this Email say? It seems this Email was trying to alert him that there was a group event planned that weekend.
Seems the OP missed, misinterpreted or ignored that warning!
Sounds like communication could have been better, but I don't fault the CG for taking advantage of a money making opportunity.

I am going to say "suck it up and move on" Write your review and forget it.
Campground owner looks at how high the stack of bills you payed as a single customer,compares them to the stack of bills that 25people and their guests left.
What would you do? Seriously 300 bucks compared to 45. U think groceries and making payroll outweighs principal in this case!

OP here. I can clear up a few things. Yes we did receive an email with the quiet times prior to arrival. I just missed that line. Nothing was mentioned when we arrived about a group. The other rules were the usual stuff about pets, no loud music, two vehicles, four campers per site and the basics.

The campground only has about 28 sites which are not much more than a gravel parking lot. FHU and clean but all the sites are side by side in two rows.

I feel they should have warned us upon arrival. The owners were very nice and accommodating the first two days but have totally ignored us since. Like they knew what was coming.
No thoughts of calling the cops.

My post was not so much about getting a refund or just complaining about a misadventure. It was to ask what others thought of the quiet time hours being between 12:30 am and 6 am.

We are half-timers I suppose so we are off today on a new adventure. This will be in the rear view mirror soon.

'Lantley' - I agree but why have a set of rules if they will not be enforced? I would have no problem with a group. We have traveled in a group at times. My problem is with 50 people together drinking, loud until after midnight, music all day and most of the night, cars and trucks everywhere clogging up the roads and every corner of the campground.

YOU should have called the authorities due to the size of the crowd and this little thing called COVID-19. Why do you think this thing is getting worse? It’s remote events like this that are causing Covid to continue to rise/spread.

No, not right. But, guess not much to do about it if owners will not take care of reported problem.


Agreed, post a nasty review in campgroundreview, and don't go there again. We have had a few such experiences in 40 years of camping. You get the bad with the good. Happily there is a lot more good.


Absolutely. One of my pet peeves is when a business of any sort will not enforce their own rules. And I would ask for a refund. They are guilty of breech of contract by not enforcing quite hours. Having quiet hours not start until 12:30 is nuts. Most cgs I've been in start at 10 or 11, with a rare exception to midnight, and go to about 7 in the a.m. You don't want to prevent people from sitting quietly around a fire at night but stopping the loud groups is only common decency.


I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be Douglas Adams

RV-less for now but our spirits are still on the open road.

There's a lot of merit to this as well. It would depend on what the state's rules are-they all vary.

I checked the State of Alabama and it limits groups to no more than 10 people.

So when you made the reservation, quiet time didn't start until after midnight and the group partied until after midnight. You didn't make the reservation based on the paper you were handed when checking in.

I'm failing to see where you have a complaint. It may not be your style park but unless the party went until WAYYYYY after midnight, sounds like you were informed of the rules ahead of time and you chose to go there anyway.

Now if you want to post a factual review that there was a group that utilized all the non-quiet time, that's legitimate but "slamming" the RV park seems a little excessive.

Being Monday, I assume the weekend group has left, so why leave early if it was otherwise nice?

RV parks rarely give refunds no matter how bad they are.
I almost went after a park manager once in a similar situation. It cost me about $100, but that was better than being arrested for assault.

This would be an example of why I like boondocking so much, and avoid campgrounds when they are crowded. The world is full of obnoxious people. You just have to work around them. If they want a reservation I think twice about going there. I do not like to pay in advance. I want to be able to leave at any time.
