Since there's an etiquette thread on fishing I thought I'd start this thread on camping etiquette after my experience this weekend. When I'm at my place of interest and searching for a camping spot I will go onto the next spot if someone else is already there. I have never camped right next to other campers that I do not know. We were meeting some friends at Wickiup this weekend and experienced some rude campers, IMO. My buddy had a place with his stuff set up and while he was out getting firewood other campers came in and staked a claim at the spot my wife and I were to get. I'd understand if the place was packed but it wasn't. Why would people do this? This is only the second time I've camped in the Dechutes Arm. Is this normal camping behavior in the Dechutes Arm? I have never experienced this in my 22 years of camping at the Davis Arm.
