My favorite camping sound is also the sound of silence.

Although annoying, I enjoy the sound of the wobbling, random scuffling of a bicycle training wheel, made by young kids making lap after lap on the campground loop.

One sound I have mixed emotions about is one that is becoming rarer and rarer. I normally hear it in a place where I tent camp. It is the sound of the Eastern Whip-poor-will. Why do they sing when we are trying to sleep?

I have to go along with the distant train for my favorite sounds. In the mountain area is even better if the whistle sound echoes up through a valley. I heard a man say one time this sound "would bring a tear to a glass eye".

Lease favorite: Loud music regardless of type. Keep your sounds on your own site please or if you want to blast your ears apart, wear a headset. Music sound is right up there with the guy who has to leave a campground way early in the morning and has to "warm up" his diesel for 15-20 minutes before it will move.

Favorite: the sound of thunder as lightning rattles the skies

Least favorite: In Yellowstone, being abruptly awakened to the sound of a grizzly bear thumping it's foot on the door of your popup trailer at 2 AM. (true story... last trip ever in the pop-up)

Favorite - the muffled sounds of the grandkids back in the bunkroom while we're trying to go to sleep. Love having them with us.

Least favorite - when it's time to break camp, load up and go back to the everyday world.
