Your taking half the fun away... Talk around the campfire about the campground? isn't that human nature...what else are people going to talk about!!
Seriously though, I understand how false information could hurt the hard work that many campground owners/employees put in to their business.
Can't tell you how many times I've had to move my fire pit.. and I have been to many above average campgrounds where I never find the fire pits lined up neatly on the sites. The number one reason I have to move my fire pit is because I'll be smoking out my camping neighbor from a combination of his site being to small and his RV being over sized. A lot of campgrounds sell green fire wood, that doesn't help the situation either....Safety have been the other reasons also.
We now have a sign that says you could be charged if you move the firepits and damage the ground. Of course our pits are at the front of the site and the sites are minimum 30x50 so large enough to house the pit without smoking out your neighbour (unless you both have 44 foot rigs and insist on going in a 20 amp site
One thing I have found is that the rigs are getting bigger and bigger, as are the vehicles used to haul them - often we will have a 40 foot rig with three slides, a huge truck used to haul it and the wife bringing her car for the weekend in case they need to each go somewhere different at the exact same time over the weekend. They bring all that to our park that was built in the 60's when the largest rig might have been a 21 foot tow behind with no slide. We are lucky in that our sites are somewhat large enough but often we have to encourage people to park in the parking lots we have created to accommodate the extra vehicles so that you have enough room on your lot for all that you want to do. Still, our park looks crammed on the weekends for sure!
