As someone else similarly commented, My brain told me not to open this thread. My curiosity made me do it. However, thankfully for my sanity, I managed just to peruse it, not read every detail. The thread that seems to tie it all together is:
"I want campground rules to allow what I like and ban what I don't, and I want others to obey them."
I am commenting on the entire thread not the original post.
Lets face it ,we can't please everyone. My advice is to read and understand the rules before you pay and setup. If you don't like them move on. If you want to have near total freedom, camp in your backyard. and even then, your scofflaw neighbors may annoy you.
"Others not obeying the rules that you respect" is by no means limited to campgrounds in our modern society. In fact, I'm guessing that campgrounds are well above average in rules obeying.
One thing I have noticed is that campgrounds are like neighborhoods. The more money people pay to live (or stay) there, the more orderly you will find it.
Since I went to all this trouble, I will touch on my favorite, campfires. If I were chosen as supreme ruler, I would totally ban burning anything just for amusement. It is wasteful, unhealthy, and polluting. For the few who are enjoying the warmth and atmosphere of the fire, there are many more downwind who are coughing, choking, and having their eyes sting.
