    I would also add (and we teach), that you should never walk through someone else’s camp site unless invited. We have had this happen to us over and over. People cut through our site because it is a short cut to the bathrooms, or some place else, at all hours. It is polite to stay on the trails and keeps everyone feeling a bit safer.

    Ack! I can’t believe I missed the paragraph about cutting through campgrounds above! Sorry! Can I just blame the craziness if summer? 🙂

    I love this article. I grew up camping and these were the “rules” of camping my parents instilled in us. I’ve had more than a few recent camping trips ruined by some of the bad behavior you mention here. Can we require that campers read this article when they check in at the campground?
