camping NIGHTMARE!

We had a HORRIBLE! camping adventure. My dh is a VERY relaxed, easy-going kinda guy and he even ripped the guy at the camping place!

the run down: -Knights Beach (aka -NIGHTMARE Beach!)
-WAY overpriced ($147 for 2 nights)
- "campsites" = aka -an open free for all FIELD! We were told each picnic table is considered a "site"
-Family camping -NOT! more like Trailer Park boys!!! People were camping on top of people, there was a domestic dispute with VERY colourful language until 4am!!!
-4-wheeler/Atv's riding around ALL HOURS!
-radio's competing with each other LOUD -even until 4am
-guy smoking crack pipe right out in plain view Need I really say more?

then it rained/lightening and thundered. Like Steve said - that was the LEAST of our worries! The last that Steve looked at the time it was 4:45am and I burried my head into my pillow (my back was KILLING me!) and then the rain started to leak through our tent and onto my head! SERIOUSLY! We got up at 6:45am and by 7:30 we were packed up and ready to leave. We complained and got a full refund! (thankfully!) and they have STIFF policy of NO REFUNDS / RAINouts etc. I do NOT recomment this place to ANYoNE! we stayed over at my inlaws Sat. night (they live on the lakeshore of lake Erie) -maybe 20min. drive from the NightMare Beach campground. Then we came home last night ahhhhh!!

Hey girlie!
Sorry about your camping trip, but're making memories!!Just think how boring it would have been had everything been perfect!! Awesome that you got a full refund, because I agree that fee sounds exorbitant. Your experience reminds me why I stopped camping my my kids were in high school. What ever happened to the peaceful outdoors? Now campgrounds are noisier than a 4th of July parade with all the loud music, screaming at all hours, ATV's etc. Don't get me started!
