I never ever turn mine on except at my home base site and only then if I'm sitting directly beside them with the volume very low.

I have been to numerous campgrounds over the years, both private and National/State. All of them have had times of "quiet hours". I really do not have an expectation of complete and total silence the entire time while I am camping. I feel that "campground noise" such as people enjoying themselves and children playing kind of adds to the experience. If it was dead silent the entire time, I would probably be a little more bothered. If I wanted complete silence I would stay in my house at home.


As far as the stabilizer jacks, power wrenches and drills go...I understand each one of us at the campground has to setup when we get there and tear down when we leave. We each have our moments of being "noisy". It is for a very brief moment and the power devices are meant to speed up the process. What makes me get a good chuckle is the people that do not grease the stabilizer jacks and all you hear is the ear-piercing squeal across the campground. This happens powered or manual. I know I have been there.


I am sure I have been the noise maker over the years and I know I have been the recipient more than once. Just try to enjoy the whole camping experience and have a good time.

Someone started a thread about "the sound of the door slamming" or something similar, that reminded them of camping. In that vein, I guess I always equated the various noises of setting up/tearing down campsites part of the experience, and our family is certainly not perfect when doing so. However, we are respectful and courteous of our neighbors, and simply expect the same in return. Most times we are not disappointed. The few times we are, well, camping is an experience whose sum total is greater than the individual parts. Healthy perspective keeps the equation honest.

I started the thread, not sure now I am glad I did it. I do not expect quiet. I have a kid and a dog. I am even a scoutmaster. I love the sounds of camp. I cannot camp enough. It is something about impact wrenches I guess. An electric drill does the job, and it is quiet and respectful. Maybe I have had a bunch of bad luck this year. We have had multiple people this year, right next to us reset three times, moving the tt a foot or so, and then level the unit using the stablizers, pounding hard on them. Another came in at 2am, first yelling directions to each other, then use their impact wrench, it's 2 am. When we roll in, at that time, we are quiet and respectful, headlights are off, parking lights are on use a flashlight and hand commands rarely we talk quietly via phone. Level, and finish up during the day.

It does not bother me if they are packing up to leave or even setting up. Now 2am may be a little dicey.

It just seems that common sense and consideration for others is lacking more and more.

Most have it and some don't. That makes for lots of conversation to say the least.

Norty, you're right on. There is no common sense and very little courtesy left, unless you're old enough to be old school. A little noise is normal for setting up, but not at 2 am. The state parks we like wont let you in after 10 pm, so it's a moot issue for us. Personally I laugh at using an impact wrench for stabilizers, onetime they won't be paying attention and then they will be buying a new jack. But will they learn their lesson????

This was at a SP, closes at 10, but this one does not have a gate. We now have self registration pay online or via a phone call, I guess this crew did not pay, as the Ranger was knocking at 7:30 am. So a little pay back.

It's not about age; it's about how you were brought up.

I have a Dewalt 18 volt impact wrench and I use it for the stabilizers jack. I have 3 sets. It does not take me very long at all to set the Jacks. We do not show up at 2 a.m. neither. It takes me about 45 seconds to set all three sets. Now if that bothers somebody then they have bigger problems than I want to know about. I have made blocks so the jacks don't go down all the way to the ground. Noise is something that goes with camping. Dogs, Kids, or even a party until it gets time for quiet time.
