We have a great thread going about pet peeves as campers so I think maybe one from owner/managers might be a good thing. I know I see things differently since I started managing campgrounds compared to when I was just camping. We always cleaned up our sites and tried to follow the rules but I'm sure we did things that irked the managers.

One of my big ones is people that bend the rules. "My dog won't run away if not on a leash" kind of thing, another is "I only took a couple of puffs on my cigarette in the no smoking bathroom".

I know that if I go back to just camping I will make more of an effort to see things from the CG's perspective.

Any other owner/managers want to add something?

Hmmm....there are one or two pet peeves....dogs off leash, big one...and yes, I know your dog won't run away but we have 212 sites here, and if each site had a dog on it and I let your dog roam free I really have to let all the others ones go too right? Rocks on the grass...total danger there...biggest one for us........moving the firepits!!! If you want to ruin my husband's weekend, move that firepit .. you pull in and look up the field you see no burnt marks on the grass; you see the fire pits are all lined up neatly, so then why should your fire pit need to be at the back of your site???? Near the water lines and electric???? One other one for me personally, the camper who is booked in for a Saturday and shows up at 8 a.m. instead of the 1:00 p.m. check in just so they can get the whole day in. I have now implemented a early check in fee that makes us all feel better! smile.gif

Now....having ranted a bit there that's not to say I don't have wonderful campers.......I do....and I absolutely LOVE my park, my job and my campers.

At the other end of the spectrum - that camper who books in for 3 weeks every year and makes me dishclothes each year; that camper that emails me and keeps me up to date on her husband's health; that camper that sends me an email to let me know her kids had a blast............THAT makes it all worthwhile smile.gif
