3 days at one of our favorite places. Arrived at 2 but check in is 4. Never been an issue but there was a tent on our spot so we killed time for 1.5 hours. They had packed up, but not loaded & ready to leave yet. We drove by & I could see there was fighting between them. We found a place to wait & 4:15 we talked to office. He said they’ve been reported for disturbance during night & sheriff’s coming. They were removed & I heard they’ll not be allowed back since it’s not first time. Now I’m hoping they don’t show up & make trouble for us.

Caretakers were called in to clean up garbage they left. I asked if they would wash up the aluminum picnic table & they scoured it up good. Made me feel better.

Next day I went to restroom & when I closed stall door, one hinge broke & door came down on me so I’m alone & trying to lean it on a wall, then 2nd hinge broke so I could at least set it aside. These are almost new partitions but hinges appeared to be ....plastic.

You say they were reported for disturbance during the night but at 4:15 pm they were still there. What did the CG mgr. say about the lack of response by the sheriff's office? I hope you don't ever have an emergency there!!

Our most memorable camping experience was many years ago: I had been told by a friend of a great campground where their church group had camped. What we didn't know until we got there with OUR extended family, was that the campground had been taken over by a group who dubbed it "Cannabis Camp". The good news: there were no fights, everyone was wonderfully-friendly; and we had live music all day long :-) The bad news: any maintenance that needed to be done had been neglected, like replacing the water heater for the ladies' shower; or removing the massive wasp nest from a common pavilion.

Best moment: our 5 yr old granddaughter said "Mom, why are so many people wearing shirts with leaves on them?" and our daughter never missed a beat: "They're Canadian, honey" (my apologies to our northern neighbors, but at age 5, a leaf is a leaf)

It was not a life threatening emergency.

I read that multiple times and cannot see how you think the sheriff never showed up. Perps were removed. By who is not stated, but maybe the sheriff provided motivation?

Anyway, seems like the OP handled it all very properly.

To clarify - sheriff came, even ran siren for a bit as he approached, presumably to get their attention. He moved them along.

I had problems with a dog barking all night at an RV park in Elk City OK. The dog was tied to the fiver and left out all night while the occupants left in their tow vehicle for a few days. Evidently, a neighbor looked after the dogs while they were away. One night I couldn't take it any more and called the police since I couldn't contact the manager. A day or so later my noisy neighbors were gone.
