Personal Space Issues

Does anyone else have issues with people cutting through their spots? This year we've had kids AND adults doing it. Only once did someone approach to ask about our AS, so it's not folks curious about that, which we are okay with. I don't mean just walking nearby either. We've regularly had people walk between our table/firepit and the door. This has happened in spaces both large and small.

We're thinking about buying some string lites and plant stakes to define our space better so that people stop walking under the awning and across our mat.

Any other ideas?

That has happened to us also. We think it's just a sign of the times.

We were at a Campground and their handout said to be respectful of others yards. It said when you rent the spot the parameters are included and please don't cut thru them. We liked that.

That's one of the reasons we like to personally pick our spots. No spots next to sinks, bath paths, hiking trails, playgrounds etc.

Not sure the lights will help but maybe.

I haven't observed that. I would not be happy if someone did that, and I'd let them know.

I am like you - I do find it quite annoying and disturbing of my quiet space. I pick spots that do not show signs of "Paths" short cuts to water or beach paths, or other facilities.

Once unhooked I will actually park my truck (if possible) across the entrance to the site - even if I have to put it on an angle - that blocks the area on the curb side of my trailer.

Common courtesy is unfortunetly a thing of the past. Kids are no longer instructed in right or wrong by parents that never learned manners themselves.
When people walk thru my camp I have no problem letting them know how rude such behavior is.

Do you know what a learning experience is? A learning experience is one of those things that says "You know that thing that you just did? Don't do that."

Certainly there is no excuse for encroaching on someone's space if there are reasonable alternatives available. Sometimes the problem is caused by poor design of the park itself. I have been in parks where there was a circle of spots between me and the beach, and I have been forced to sort of sidle along the "property line" between two sites to get to the beach. Maybe they intend that way; there was no clear passage to the beach. If I'm in the middle of a row, and the laundry room is 50' away, but on the other side of the row facing me, and the only alternative is to walk 50 yards to the end of the row and then 50 yards back again, I'll probably walk between two spots. If there were a walkway between spots within a reasonable distance, I'd certainly take it, but that isn't always the case.

I have had people walk right across our patio mat, I guess because they are too lazy to walk around. Another came along and took firewood out of the fire pit. Common courtesy is a dying trait.

And how about personal pet space? We were at a site we really loved - right on a river, watch the boats, etc. park requires leashes for dogs. We comply. Guy comes waking through with 2 dogs NOT on leashes, both of whom want to run over to meet Daisy who is tied up. When she's on a leash and other dogs aren't, she gets VERY defensive and overly protective of "her space". I had to yell at the (thoughtless/rude) owner to control his dogs and keep them away from my dog on a leash. He couldn't have cared less.

I do not like you, strange man too self absorbed to care that others share the planet. 😕

Haha we've had it happen too but don't really care unless they are beer thieves but you could always have fun with it too you know. Just saying. Claymore mines are usually frowned upon in RV parks
