Goofy,
As a campground owner, may I reply?
You are a nice guy AND you need to complain to the campground host or owner!


I would have if it continued. As it turns out, they were loud, their kids were louder - but then kids are. The next night the kids were in bed by 9, the adults sat out on the picnic table til about 11, and then peace reigned, ah, blessed peace. They set up a badminton game on their side, and the birdie bonked our bus a couple of times, but heck, I remember being 13 and not exactly in control of the racket myself.

I appreciate the nonsense that campground owners must go through; I can't tell you how many times I've come into a site and found a load of garbage in a fire ring - and know that you can't inspect every fire ring 10 minutes after somebody leaves - or, well, you know the litany of abuses far better than I.

So we just try to get along, and hope that when I start my generator at 3:30AM or drive off with one of your picnic tables you don't get too cranky <grin>

Goofy
who saw a campground in Gatlinburg rated 10-10-10 that he wouldn't have given a "7" to.
