I haven't had problems to the extent that you folks have. If there are 2 vacant sites back to back I will cut through there in case I need to make it to the bathroom in a hurry. I try to avoid sites that are near a path between loops, close to trailheads or adjacent to the bathrooms.

On repeat offenders, maybe you could ask them to share the cost of the space since they are already sharing its use.

A roll of yellow Crime Scene tape around the site should do the trick!

Another thought that might send the proper message - Hello ! We were just about to sit down for supper, and since you're already here, you are invited. We are having calf brain stew with mountain oysters, and jellyfish pie for desert. How about it ?

If that doesn't turn them off, then you might as well put down a walkway to guide them through your site.

I found that camping on a CG perimeter site greatly reduces the probability of having to deal with "walk thru's".

In all the years that I have been camping there has only been a couple of times that I had to deal with someone continually using my campsite as a short cut. At least in my case a polite "I would really appreciate that you wouldn't use my campsite as a CG pathway"....., worked for me.

How about using empty pop or beer cans with a few rocks in them. Tie them with fish line that is a tangled mess. It won't trip them but you will sure hear them comming.

Last Memorial Day, I had a family cutting through my site to get to theirs. I asked them twice not to cut through the camp site. The 2nd time the father told me it was too far to walk around. I said, are you kidding me? I put up a clothes line in their path and that ducked under it. I called the security people and complained, and they did nothing but go talk to them, and it still continued. The next time I saw them I got up and stood in front of their path, and told them to walk around. They started cutting through the next site after that.
Lazy people, who have no regard for the rules, other peoples things or privacy.

Chuck I would do that but being a Corrections officer for 24 years I have a tendency to dump someone on their A$$ when they get up close and personal. Camping is what has kept me sane from the weekly steel and block. If there is a small issue I just give the wife the look and she handles it. Cause when I get involved someone needs medical attention and bail money.
