Saw this story on my newsfeed the other day about some campers being threatened by some low-life's. Well, we were at that campground on our last night out; last Friday night and we had a problem another "camper"- a dude with two vehicles in his site looking like they lived there.
We pull in and back into site #2 (1-4 are away from the rest of c.g.). Then a guy comes up to us and says "RV's aren't really allowed and we would probably have to pay for the site next door too" - as our tow blocked some access to it from one direction. He was obviously trying to convince us to move, however I told him we would deal with that if and when it happened. He then starts his truck up and lets it idle for about 15-20 minutes- at 6 PM.
Then at 1 AM he does the same thing so I go over there and remind him of the quiet hour. He turns it off. Then starts it up again at 5 AM. We left at 6.
What we heard from the Parks manager is they've been having problems lately, and it started up when CA did their "Prison Realignment", whereby they over the objections to Law Enforcement started to reduce the rates of prison overcrowding by releasing "non-violent" offenders to county jails, parole or probation. Pretty stupid move IMHO.
So- in California when you see some folks and your radar goes off a little, there might be something to those instincts.
