Sometimes the best way to make sure you camp next to good neighbors is to be the good camping neighbor. Here are a few tips to make sure you’re not obnoxious one at the campsite and what to do if you end up parked next to the guy who is.
- If you don’t like noisy neighbors then make sure you know when and how to be quiet yourself. In most campgrounds and RV parks 30 minutes or so after the sun goes down is generally when loud talking or shouting should stop. In the summer, that’s usually around 10 p.m.
- Once it gets dark and you’re using flashlights, do your best to keep them pointed at the ground. Light on a tent wall or pointed directly into someone’s eyes is just bad form.
- Not everyone loves pets. If you’re a pet owner, be mindful of that. If you’re not a pet owner, be considerate. Those four-legged friends are someone’s traveling companion.
- Don’t litter and keep your site tidy and clean.
- When night falls, don’t walk through someone else’s campsite. In the day, be friendly but remember some folks go camping to relax and not to party.
