    Another reason I'm getting disillusioned

    I'm at a campground at the southern coast of Georgia for the month of March to get away from the cold and snow that plagued my home area all winter. Upon arriving I had issues with my fifth wheel breaking which hasn't made this pleasant so far. They are being addressed but not the focus of this post.
    I have stayed here before, it has been generally a quiet place with generous campsites, amenities and lots of preserved low country surroundings and ambiance. When your neighbors are screened by cabbage palms and palmettos it can't be a bad thing right?
    Wednesday, a week and half into my stay, five toy haulers arrived and took up residence along the row where I am parked. Four are GD Momentum and a Spartan, whatever that is. Within an hour all the golf carts came out and started their parade every which way well into the night. No regard for traffic flow around the campground or spot lights shining into others campers. Then there are the blinding blue lights on the fronts and underneath those Momentum's that were enough to light a small city. I'm generally up early and take the dogs out with me to sit under the stars with my coffee and watch the skies. Because there is no way to see anything I haven't bothered to bring out the telescope since they got here, the light pollution is worse than any I have at home, they literally light up this whole side of the campground and it's not as if they are outside and need the light. Also the party that ensues and carries on into the late evening. The nice fellow that is camping next to me with his family even commented how loud and late they were. The mother and daughter on the other side packed up early and left yesterday, I think influenced by their new neighbors.
    Yesterday it appeared another three arrived and joined them, two of those being GD rigs. More golf carts on the roads which are gas powered, not electric BTW. What I don't get they jump into the carts to go to one another yet are no more than 100 yards away at most. Are they really that lazy?
    While walking the nature trails with my dogs I saw golf carts riding on them (prohibited by campground rules and if there was any, common sense) and one was even off crossing a foot bridge across to the other side of the lake.
    I avoid the commercial campgrounds and stay to county, state and national parks to find the quiet outdoors I thought camping is supposed to be. Maybe I'm getting dour in my old age but the lack of consideration and respect for others is becoming more than I want to put up with anymore. That's my rant, and maybe I'll look for a house here to winter over in. Prices for a used 260RD are really good right now.

    This type of thread is all too common on just about any RV forum. One mans way of enjoyment becomes anothers PITA.
    There will always be someone that doesn't like what you are doing.
    This is why I don't use campgrounds. we boondock exclusively far far away from people.

    For some reason people are generally drawn to other people like a magnet.

    My brother once just wanted a quick throwdown overnight camp.No RV this time.
    He took a dirt road on public land several miles out into the sagebrush. A couple of hours later while he was cooking dinner, a car appeared on the horizon. It got closer and closer until it parked 50' from him. My brother walked over to him with his sidearm strapped on and politely told him "If I wanted neighbors, I would not be camped here."
    The fella left immeadiatly,

    I feel the frustration. Sounds like a beautiful place to camp until the noise and light pollution which would have ruined it for us as well. I already deal with golf cart noise late at night and atvís even in my neighborhood despite the HOA rules, wouldnít want it while Iím away looking for peace. It just comes to lack of consideration and respect for others and I sadly see it everywhere these days.

    Only 8AM to 5PM after hours its the honor system which during 5 previous stays has worked. I did take it up with one of the facility employees late yesterday. I fear that this is the future trend with camping being politicized now as well.

    THAT IS NOT my idea of how to engage with others.

    It does seem more political lately. Look at the 'show your rig' pictures, there's a fair number of political flags being flown. Everything is a team sport now.
