Not that Ruth and I are experts at RV Park camping! We much prefer boondocking. But we have spent a lot of time workcamping at two different KOA kampgrounds. We spend 6 weeks at the one in Cavendish, PEI, and 6 months at the one in Kingston, Ontario. In fact, we're going back to the one in Kingston when we return from our Florida trip! We feel this amount of experience has taught us a great deal about RV Park etiquette.
One day, early in the summer of 2008, we were parked up in our spot at the Cavendish KOA.
We had a fairly large site at the Cavendish KOA. You can see the shadow on the ground of the motorhome parked in the site next to us. Well one day, not long after we had just started there, people who were parked in the row opposite us on the other side of the road started to walk across our site in order to get to the bathroom. Not everybody, in fact far from it...just one or two per day. Everyone else took the extra 30 seconds to walk around on the road.
We ended up moving the picnic table so that it blocked the part they were walking through between the little tree and Sherman. This helped fix the problem, but one day Ruth was outside in the front, and a woman who could have used the extra 30 seconds of exercise decided to cross through our site. Ruth stopped her and mentioned that it was our site she was walking through. The woman says "well I'm only going to the bathroom", and Ruth says "well could you please walk around the way everyone else does". The woman gave Ruth a look, and exclaimed "hmph, somebody got up on the wrong side of the bed!".
We have since learned that there are a few people who simply don't care if someone walks through their site. But the majority of RV'ers feel that they have paid rent for that little piece of property, and feel like their space is being invaded if others walk through it nonchalantly.
