How to be a good neighbor at the campsite?

How to be a good neighbor at the campsite? – main image

If someone knows the basic rules of conduct in public places, it will be a cliche for him. On the other hand, if he does not know them or knows them, but disregards them, attempts to teach him to be a good neighbor are doomed to failure. And here we can imagine a noisy group that organizes boisterous parties until dawn, nags its neighbors looking for harassment, and leaves a pile of rubbish behind when they leave. Does it make sense to talk about it at all? It is because it is not about such extreme situations, but about a few rules that must be followed in order to have fun and not to make other people's lives uncomfortable.

Caravanning Savoir vivre

Everyone seems to know what is allowed and what is forbidden in the campsite. However, does everyone read the regulations ? And it should be a basic rule - maybe most of the rules in force in such places are universal, but it is quite possible that this particular campsite we are on is guided by its own and it would be worth getting acquainted with them.

"Tomek's freedom in his house"

A stay at a campsite is a time of rest, fun and relaxation for us, but you have to remember that everyone came here with the same attitude. Therefore, we do not make noise , especially at night (not only because such a ban is included in the regulations). Besides, we do not shorten our routes by treading paths in the neighbor's field - everyone has their own piece of the "yard" here and it should not be violated.

Rule number 1: We drive carefully around the campsite . The speed limit must not be exceeded, mainly because of the children playing everywhere. If you are coming back very late or very early, do not use the blinding lights. If you want to light a fire (if possible), use only dry branches - do not tear them off the tree. If we need additional roofing, you can tie the lines between the camper and the tree, we absolutely do not hammer any nails for attaching strings or cables.

Leave a good impression, no rubbish

There are usually special wash basins on the campsite where you can wash your dishes. Dirty water should be poured into the catchment area, as is the case with emptying chemical toilets - we do not pour waste into the lake, stream or on the ground. By following these recommendations, we will avoid contamination of drinking water sources.

We clean up after ourselves no matter where we are. We clean the picnic table after the meal, we also clean after bathing in the public bathrooms. Before leaving the campsite, collect all rubbish from your area, cut off and remove the lines connecting the tent or camper from the trees. And above all, you have to leave the field at the right time - perhaps the next holidaymaker is waiting for our place.
