We recently conducted an informal Facebook survey on campground etiquette. We received so many great responses that we decided to compile them into a Top 10 list. In this episode, we discuss the top 10 campground etiquette rules to be a good neighbor. We’ll also share a few honorable mentions and the funniest responses!
As you might expect many of them revolve around children and dogs. I personally think that RV travel and even tent camping is an awesome activities for families to take part in. I can’t wait to take my (future) grandchildren out with us. But, not everyone has kids, and not everyone wants to entertain other people’s kids. So doing things like supervising them as required is the neighborly thing to do.
Same goes for dogs, and maybe even more so since they are (hopefully) the only ones who might poop on your campsite. Also, if you’re going out sightseeing for the day be aware of how the sounds of the campground can startled your furry friends. This can result in frequent barking, which can often be heard by your camping neighbors.
Litter is another pet peeve and really it bothers me anywhere, not just the campground. Yes, there are often camp hosts, but that doesn’t mean you have to leave trash and beer cans in the fire pit.
My problem with the Golden Rule of treating others how you’d like to be treated is that we’re not all the same. I personally don’t care if people cut through my site, but it you download this list of the 10 Commandments of Campground Etiquette, you’ll see it ranks high. I’m also not a stickler for quiet hours, but my Fifth Wheel is more insulated than a tent or pop up camper, so I can see why others would be more concerned. More than anything if we all are simply more aware of how our actions affect others, I think we’d all get a long better.
