I love real camping,  but sometimes nice RV parks can be a nice change of pace.  What I can't understand are the people who think "rules" don't pertain to them.  This morning at a five star Park in Northern California I witnessed the following:  Three dog owners with off leash dogs.  Two ran to my dog ( on leash ) and nearly caused a fight.  Two of the owners came running up telling me their dogs normally don't do that.  I ask both a question in a nice pleasant tone, "why would you think the leash rules don't apply to you"?  Both seemed taken aback.  One said "Bobby" never goes outside, I replied, "apparently he does"!  The other said "Sam" stay's near the fifth-wheel.  I said apparently he does not! The third dog sniffing at my dogs butt, had no owner close enough to care!  The Park Manager and I had coffee afterwards, and she told me the amount of people who "can't" "won't  " or simply "ignore" the rules is staggering.  Not just dog rules but all rules!  She said her staff is always asking people to please do this, not to do that, as politely as possible , then these same guests write a "bad" review on line, about every aspect of the park.   I understand her frustration.  What are your thoughts?

The "great societ" where you are not responsible for your actions.


This post is my opinion (free advice). It is not intended to influence anyone's judgment nor do I advocate anyone do what I propose.

I can sympathize, but the only effective solution is to avoid parks in general, and busy parks in particular.

It goes on in all walks of life, doesn't it?

"Express checkout" lines
Aircraft boarding lines
Overhead bin size limits
Traffic lights
Driving under the influence
Parents versus schools
Speed limits
and on and on and on...

After camp hosting for 6 weeks this summer in State Parks I can honestly tell you the number of times I had to approach and ask people to leash their pets was maybe three times. It is I believe a matter of where you are and the clientele the park caters to.

Artemus,

I am constantly amazed at how often I end up living in someone elses world or driving on someone elses highway or camping in someone elses campground.... I know these all belong to the other person because they don't care about the rules that I obey.

By the way I really enjoyed your TV show...too bad Jim West got all of the press. See, even back then you were living in his world. :-)

Just curious. Are those pet owners that are staying at this five star RV park just passing through, or are they seasonal residents?
