I knew there was a reason I enjoy camping in Canada.

We are looking forward to camping in Canada in the future. Always wanted to visit the Great White North in our AS. And we know we won't run into any noisy neighbors in the campgrounds.

There was no ranger in sight and the camphost didn't seem to care much.

Both times we ended up moving: we unhooked water and electricity and towed our AS to an empty site, away from the noise makers.
Very frustrating but what can you do...

What can you do about noisy neighbors??
Time for bagpipe practice . . tuning and scales should take the first hour. Between drinks.

Scales? You don't need to play scales to run someone off. With a couple of good drone pipes you can annoy the hell out of them and keep your hands free for the uisge beatha.

Okay so let's see, How to handle noisy neighbors: Pop out of the Airstream naked with a bagpipe and a yellow flashlight. That is funny!

Without a doubt, picking (guessing) a campsite is the worse thing about camping. Barking dogs, loud music, early risers with big diesels that want to run for 30 minutes before leaving,whatever can disrupt my sleep is checked out before unhooking the trailer. We usually try for state campgrounds with quiet time rules. Then, at least we have a last resort for the unexpected. I also carry ear plugs.

We own a campground and we have radio free areas to avoid those campers who feel everyone wants to hear their Shitty music!...lol. It's a fine line those people also paid their money but but are very inconsiderate of others for sure.

Sorry, Canadians do make noise, and lots of it, especially when young and drinking. I have been next to them in Canadian National Parks... trust me... grin. But the ones I have encountered are mostly friendly, and want you to come over and have a drink. Or many.

Absolutely Canadians can make a ton of noise. Anybody ever attended a "bush party"-- or been within earshot? One of the scariest tent camping experiences of my life was in a provincial park over Victoria Day weekend, when the guy next to us got roaring drunk (and I mean roaring.) We didn't know if he was armed or not, but he seemed pretty violent. We hunkered down quietly and I suspect he eventually just passed out.

At least the Bambi provides a lot more insulation than a couple of layers of nylon.

We have asked the odd group of campers to tone it down, and this has never been a problem.

Our Secret Weapon is to get up early, and make some noise right next to the late-night party people, if possible.

If you are offering free drinks, for sure, come on up! We have lots of parking spots.

At my previous apartment building, in the New Orleans Garden District, the unspoken rule was, "if you can hear the party, you're invited!" Didn't always get as much sleep as I needed back in those days, but I had a great time.

So one way to handle noisy neighbors is, crash their party and make it your own.

Perhaps Canadian campgrounds are quiet, but the campground we stayed at in Brimley, MI was filled with Canadians because it was Canada Day weekend. It was overcrowded with extra tents, cars and dogs at almost every campsite. The radios were loud, the dogs barked all night and one fellow decided he needed to run his noisy old diesel every half hour for a few minutes. We will not go back to that campground on that weekend.
