of your campgrounds have designated quiet hours, abide by them. They
are usually from
11:00 p.m. to 6 a.m
tent campers that we are, I suppose we are more sensitive to noise
really surprising how disruptive a seemingly minor amount of noise
whatever kind of camper you may be -
try to remember that many campers are facing a day on the road or a
full day of activity in the morning.
the quiet hour comes we are just that -
we want to stay up we will do so being mindful of noise, In any case
we retire within an hour and are therefore "fully silent".
This may not be your idea of fun but it's really the only way unless
you're really secluded.
me I heard you "chatting' till 3:00AM!
there's a posted speed limit, abide by it!
15 - 20 MPH is suggestive
the proper trash receptacles for your garbage -
items in the recycle bin and garbage in the garbage container.
walking around the campground with a beverage, throw your empty can
or cup in the proper receptacle, not along side the road. These
things are not part of the nature you have come to see.
you are a smoker, please put your cigarette butts and package
wrappers in the firepit.
you smoke in your tent, bring along an ashtray.
firepit is like a huge ashtray, and it won't take much effort on
your part to put the butts in the firepit. The
next campers may not smoke and will very much appreciate the little
effort it took to put your cigarette butts in the firepit. Cigarette
butts are not a part of nature and don't belong on campground roads
or trails. After
a walk or hike, bring your cigarette butts back to your firepit or
take along a portable ashtray.
bottle tops need to go in the trash, not the firepit or the ground.
bottle tops on the ground will cause an injury and/or possible
damage to someone's tent if they don't see the top. Plus,
beer bottle tops are not a part of nature and don't belong on the ground.
burn anything but paper or wood in your firepit.
only melts and puts bad fumes into our air -
air you left the city for!
cans don't burn.
sparklers from the Fourth of July don't burn either, so please take
a few minutes to toss these in the trash.
each others campsites.
in essence "rent" out the site they use during their
camping trip. This space is theirs to use during the period
they have paid for.
don't cut through other's campsites on the way to the bathrooms,
showers, trails, etc.
you like music please keep it to your campsite.
campers (like me!) would rather listen to nature.
exactly "etiquette" but it will help you (and
more fun . . .
there is any kind of a problem in your campground do not hesitate to contact
the Rangers immediately.
Campground Hosts usually are able to contact the Rangers directly.
If your campground does not have a Camp Host, contact numbers for
Rangers are usually posted near the check-in/registration area. If
your Host is not available at the time you stop by to report the
problem, leave a note. Please don't wait until the morning to report
noisy campers from the night before. If campers are really obnoxious
they can and do get evicted! However, it is best if the Rangers
witness this, so telling them the next day won't often help.
campers are too drunk to drive that night, they usually are given a
time in the morning to be out.
worry about these obnoxious campers thinking it was "you"
who told the Rangers.
obnoxious camper could have been reported by anyone!!
on to the gross, but necessary. . .
don't potty in the woods.
so disgusting (and unhealthy!) to walk into a beautiful site and
find the edges of it dotted with white tissue. Or
consider this scene . . . campers
cruising the campground to find just the right campsite. They
finally find it and are proud. Then as their weekend or week goes on,
as they sit anywhere in their camp, you can't help but notice all the
tissue that is now dotting the perimeter of their site. If you really
do not want to walk to the bathrooms, please consider bringing some
sort of port-a-potti.
please properly dispose of your "feminine hygiene products."
it or not, these too are found dotting the edges of the campsites.
Will you pick this same campsite, the one where you left these
products at the edge of the woods, the next time you come out camping? Most
bathrooms have receptacles for these products. Please use the
containers! The next time you use the bathroom, which stall are you
going to pick? The one where you know you left your used sanitary
product on the back of the toilet or the next one???
gross, but necessary . . .
gentlemen, please properly dispose of your prophylactics. Yes,
believe it our not, these too, are found not far from where tents
throw them in the water either.
children not to play in the shower rooms.
is most annoying to go to the washroom and have children yelling, in
fun and exuberance to be sure. The acoustics in washrooms magnifies
sound so it can really hurt to go into a washroom where children are
yelling at the top of their lungs. They can do it outside, or in the
lake or river facilities where it is expected. Also this is very
unfriendly to take up time in the showers when you aren't using them.
Remember, everyone else uses those showers too, and some use them
during the day so the lines won't be so long at night or in the morning.
many campers have their favorite campsite.
before you leave. The next time you come to this site, is this how
you want it to look? Do you really want to walk into your favorite
site with your beer bottles still heaped in the fire pit and trash
left scattered around your site? Wouldn't you prefer the campground
staff is spending their time making improvements at your campground
rather than spending their time simply picking up after campers.
take 15 minutes or so and do a group effort to quickly pick up your campsite.
we all follow this simple, commonsense, camping etiquette the
beautiful campgrounds we are enjoying now with our families will
still be beautiful when our children have their families and want to
take them camping!!
