    Default Disappointed in Badplaas

    Hi all

    We returned yesterday from a weekend camping at Badplaas
    I must regretably state that I havent been so disappointed in a camp for some time - the facilities were once again excellent but...
    Somehow some "campers" find it special to share their taste in music (which usually stinks anyway) with the rest of the population
    This happened all throughout the day and there were only 3 or 4 sites that were the quilty parties, why cant decent campers who are there to enjoy some peace of the outdoors and are in the matority probably 10/1 just stamp down and refuse to let these idiots ruin the weekend for everyone

    Understand me right, I have no objection if you want to listen to music but then dont make me listen to it also, and people laughing and talking and having a good time is also part of a camp setup like that, also no problem from my side, but music pumping at 1000s of decibells are no fun

    Luckily they did stick to the 10pm rule. I would like to make a suggestion that if Badplaas have two blocks to camp that the one be kept for idiots with R50 cars and R500 000 speaker systems, and the other camp be kept for people who would like to camp without a nightclub on their porch

    I have a small child (4 months) and in a couple of years that is exactly the sort of places he would like to visit because of the pools and slides etc, but at this rate they wont see me again soon

    It is sad but introduce him to the camping spirit as portrayed in your signature picture.

    The world is full of all sorts of people. It's not nice but if they adhered to the rules then there's is not much one can do but to go where they can't go. You have a 4x4. Use it!

    This is Badplaas at its best for you! We're only 100km's from Badplaas, but after 3 weekends of camping there and every time the same experience as yours, not again. Facillities no problem, attitude of some campers, BIG problem.

    I am not even sure why they allow campers.

    Imagine the peace and quiet with any people.

    Read the camp rules more carefully next time.

    Many camps down here now ban any type of music, even guitars around the camp fire.

    4x4 campsites are also usually a safer bet. It keeps the mobile boomboxes out.

    Now, just to find a solutions to the MORONS that pitch up with floodlights and leave them on when they go to sleep! Maybe a WinMag will help!

    That's why we don't camp at commercial camps anymore... I hate it when I enjoy myself and then get told to turn my music down at 23:00

    So now we go and camp where other people can't bother us....

    Magtig ja nee, dit is iets wat ek nie kan verstaan nie hoekom sal iemand gaan kamp as hy in 'n club wil wees?

    Gaan dan na 'n pub of club of sokkie.

    Kamp is tog mos duidelik, kamp vuur, sterre, natuur geluide en 'n rustige lekker kuier en gesels.

    Hehe, het al gevoel ek vat daardie 1000w speakers en maak dit soos 'n headset aan die persoon se koppe vas.

    Want dis lekke om te Club in die veld (en baie min komersiele kampe klasifiseer as "in die natuur")


    Maar obviously is dit n ander storie as ons bv. overland en Botswana en daai plekke toe gaan... dan gaan ons om natuur te waardeur...

    Maar hier in SA kamp ons om van die stad lewe weg te kom... En dan werk n ou harde musiek en drank mos lekke

    Mnre

    Julle kan maar lekker spot oor Witbank ek het daar skool gegaan en glo my net soos in die kampe is daai soort in die minderheid

    As I mentioned I have no issues if you want to play your music, just please explain to me why your your music, enjoyment and fun is more important than the rest of the camp's?
    In my opion a lot to do with integrity and respect for other, sadly something that modern man (read idiot) has forgotten
