Rowdy Weekend

Judy and I have settled back into the slow pace of the park although, there were a couple of WTH moments over the weekend.  Six sites in our loop were occupied by approx 40 “frat Bros”. They came into the park after hours so I was not aware of  their presence until Sat. AM.

Each morning I make an early trip to the comfort station to check that adequate supplies are on hand and to do an initial light clean if needed.  Sat. morning when I did this survey I found a Mess in the men’s side.  The morons had puked all over the floor and stopped up one of the toilets.  I immediately closed the men’s side.  A couple two sites over came over and told me which site had caused the problem and also told me the group was raising hell until about 3:00 AM.

Needless to say I was a tad irritated.  I do not suffer fools lightly, maybe as a result of being a Master Chief in the Navy.  I radioed the Ranger Station and ask that a staff person be sent to the comfort station. Once the staff person I showed them the mess and suggested that they go over and have a talk with the group. I also indicated that I would not clean up another mess like this from the group.  I hosed out the comfort station and bleached mopped the deck and sanitized all the sinks and toilets. I was a little surprised that  two hours passed and another report of inappropriate activity before an authority figure was sent to talk with the group. I know at least two campers left early.  For the most part, other than being loud they didn’t cause any more problems.

Once the group left Sunday things got back to normal. I love tranquility! 

That’s all for now, thanks for stopping by.

  1. One of the hazards of being a camp host, I guess. Sorry you had to experience the mess though.

  2. A large smoke bomb dropped in their site might have sent them packing:)

    1. Yep, and I would have liked to be the one to lite the fuse!!

  3. Ewwww..I would have made them clean up their own mess, and then kicked them out!
