Disgusting camping practices

In an attempt to inform anyone who wonders, what are some disgusting things you have seen in a campground?

Keep it family friendly!

My first and you could call it a pet peeve also is watching someone break camp and hold the dump hose under the site fresh water faucet to rinse it out.

Things like that can be very helpful for campers who may wonder if the fresh water faucet is ok to just put your hose on!

Anyone?

People filling their fresh water tank and the dump station using the dump station's flushing hose (i.e., the one that clearly states not for filling fresh water tank)

Dumping breakfast cereal, egg shells and dirty diapers in the fire ring when leaving.


Defecating in the showers, up chucking in the showers and just leaving it.


Not making sure the sewer hose is firmly held in place and dumping all over yours and the neighbors site...and leaving it.


Need I post more? Always leaving your camp sight full of trash and debris...

Just the general laziness of some campers. Throwing trash around, beer cans in firepit, spent bullet casings, used diapers.
You would think people who enjoy camping would want to take care of their places...but no

That's why I always carried a spray bottle with strong bleach water in my utility compartment. You never know what idiot was there before you.

Pet peeve: Laying the sewer hose on the picnic table.

Your post on the other thread gave me the idea for this thread.

Saw a dog lift his leg on a fresh water spigot once. Every since, I use disposable wipes before hooking up the FW hose.

We were camped on Florida at a state park. I was dumping my blue boy at the double sided dump station. A motorhome pulled up to the other side. Pulled his black drain and let it run out on the ground and into the sloped drain hole. No hose! then drove off into the campground.

I reported him and he was evicted. The fire dept was called to wash the whole area off.
