We went home to Augusta Georgia for the weekend and decided to take the RV with us and stay out at Lake Thurmond. Chose Ridge Road COE Campground as its been over 12 years since he had been there last. Got there Friday evening after 6pm sometime. Guy at the gate shack told me that the lady that was there for two weeks in our site had to be told to leave as it was a good bit after 2pm and she claimed she didn't know check out time was 2 pm. Didn't think it really concerned us, since she was no longer there. Get to the site and it was apparent that they didn't get a chance to clean it up. First thing after backing in, that I saw was pieces of a broken mirror all over the ground. Second thing was about an 8' partially burned log hanging over to fire pit. Then the fire pit. Looks like she was too lazy to take the garbage to the provided dumpsters at the front of the park and that she would burn her trash in the fire pit. I normally would not have too much of an issue as I would just see a bunch of ashes and not be able to tell what it was. I'm not a fire investigator, but it was apparent to what it was as it was not completely burned. Soda cans and other stuff was piled up in the fit. Also it was just not in the pit, but also a Ross the cooking grates. We weren't going to have a fire, but i didn't want to look at that all weekend and our parents were coming to visit on Saturday and I didn't want them seeing it. The next morning I rode my bike to the gate shack and explained to the attendant. They said they would send someone to clean it up and they did. The guy that came to clean it it up said the lady left so late that he didn't get a chance to clean it up. He even raked the site out and made it look nice.

Also on Friday evening, after setting up I decided to go and check out the bath house across from our site. Walked in and there is me urinal and one toilet. Someone had dedicated in the urinal. Really? I can understand that things happen you might gotta go and some one is in the other toilet and its an emergency, but would you really just leave it there? Wouldn't you have the decency to at least move it somehow to the toilet and flush it?

Nasty people.

I think kids poop in the urinal because they think its funny! We generally use our on facilities so we miss out on little treats like that.

You said a mouthful!

Did you see the other thread on this same subject? You think your fire pit was nasty- this poor guy found himself in a site where some slob had emptied their black tanks right on the ground!

I generally don't either, but in case we ran in to a circumstance of either having to unhook and go dump or just use the bath house, I figured I would scout out the idea.

Pooping in the urinal is likely kids. Pigs will be pigs.

At least if they thought they would be caught.

Seems the campground folks did you right........came and cleaned site & explained/apologized for not doing it before.

Bathroom facilities......what is that?
Haven't even seen the inside of one in years.
I have a self contained RV and I use it regardless of how many times I might have to dump.

I leave those facilities to the pigs..........which are abundant.

At least it was a good trip.

Truly a shame. But it makes you realize that when parks post regulations that seem outrageous it is because some idiot may have acted in a way that spoils things for everyone. John Wayne's famous statement: "you can't fix stupid" is as true today as ever.
Happy Trails
