One of the main perks of RV camping at a campground is the opportunity to meet new people and make new friends. In order to make a good impression on your fellow campers, you should strive to be considerate and neighborly to those around you. Because RVers are such a friendly bunch, it is not hard to make friends; however, breaking the common etiquette rules could prove problematic.

Dos and Don'ts of Campground Etiquette

Campground Etiquette

Staying at a campground is much like living in a neighborhood except that everyone is constantly moving and your neighbors are always changing. There are common considerate actions that most campers adhere to in order to live harmoniously in campgrounds all over the country. If you are new to the campground scene, Greenwood RV Rentals & Sales recommends these four etiquette tips to remember on your next camping trip.

Dos and Don’ts

  • Don’t walk through campsites. It is OK to walk up and knock on the camper door to say hello, but don’t walk through campsites (just like you would not walk through your neighbor’s yard).
  • Do keep the noise down late at night and in the early morning. Keep in mind that an RV is different from a house in that you can easily hear everything going on outside. You never know when your neighbors are sleeping, so keep it quiet during normal sleeping hours.
  • Don’t assume that everyone likes your pet as much as you do. Some people find small dogs annoying and some people find big dogs intimidating. Some people have allergies, and others just don’t like pets in general. Be sure to keep your pets a considerate distance from your neighbors and, of course, don’t forget to pick up after them!
  • Do keep the outside of your RV neat and tidy. Don’t store items outside, except for a grill and chairs, because it will look messy. Remember that your neighbors will see the outside of your RV better than you will when you are inside.
Experienced RVers will agree that if you are considerate with your belongings and the noise level, and you treat others’ campsites and RVs like their homes, you will have a great time and make great friends.
