If you get one warning and continue out you go. They will even get the RCMP in to help if need be. But for the most part the people who are there camping are respectful and are all there to relax.
So thats what you'all call them up there, we call'm Park Rangers down here in the lower 48. And they don't put up with squat, either.

Well, went camping again this week-end, at Hueston Woods State park here in Ohio. And, I'm glad to say that we didn't have to put up with someone playing that stupid game called "Cornhole". Thank the Creator

I agree that camping is about having fun, and the loud music is about the most annoying thing I've encountered while camping, too. The worst part is the offending party does not have any clue when to turn it down (such as when most other campers have headed off to bed and are trying to sleep).

On a recent camping trip to lake Isabella, our group was several sites away from one such group, and even though we stayed up fairly late, they continued to play their music until the wee hours of the morning, long after most everyone in camp had gone to bed. Ugh!

The second most annoying thing I can think of that I've encountered while camping is the folks in the big old motorhomes that pull into a campsite, setup and adjust their TV antenna, then fire up the generator and watch TV for hours until they go to bed at night. What ever happened to enjoying the "great outdoors?"

I have never understood the desire to go to the woods, the lake, or wherever, just to bring along everything that you had back at home. The idea is to simplify your life and enjoy your visit in a natural environment, at least in my opinion. Why do some people need to bring all the annoyances they left home to get away from?

Thats one of the reasons my wife and I load the canoe, bikes and my fishing pole. But when we're back at the camp site, we like to just sit there infront of the fire, talk, have a little wine and listen to some soft music (NOT LOUD) and enjoy looking up at the stars as the fire sparks flow upward.

I don't really mind soft music when played in a campground, since it rarely affects people in the next camp, let alone several camps away. I actually enjoy soft music, too, but enjoy it most when it's from singing around the campfire to a guitar accompaniment!

What I really don't understand is the need some people seem to have of watching TV inside their RV when they are "camping," especially when it's beautiful outside. That's the one I can't figure out.

Agreed on both accounts. I love to hear guitar music drift over and HATE when they bring the TV outside. I watch TV, but inside.

Right on all accounts,

And the little lady and I usually only turn the TV one to find out what the weather going to be like for that day, or at night just before we drift off to sleep.
All of the Ohio state parks have a 11pm til 6am quiet time, its the privately owned camp grounds that the idiots cut loose all night long. Thats why we tend to stay away from the non-state controlled camp grounds.

Thats OK, I'l sneak over to thier camp site when they all go to sleep and spray a little raccoon lure on the bag, or maybe some cooking oil should do the trick.
