I often get on this just to read and have a laugh. Its amazing just what some people complain about.
The caretaker patrols the camp ground and so far has done a good job of keeping the noise down so some of us can get sleep before we get up for work.
Every other year the MCG has been known as the party ground. But this year many of the party goers that have returned have found out that its not anymore. To the benefit to the many.
If you are one of the few that have got on the wrong side of the caretaker i just have to ask why?
Would it be because you couldn't walk a few meters to charge your phone?
One of the many signs people are complaining about say you can charge at the office or at the caretakers van.
Instead we have to wait on your phone to be charged before we can cook our meals?
You left your mess so the rest of us or the caretaker had to clean up after you? (The please clean up after yourself sign).
Or you made noise to keep the rest of us campers awake.
Or were you one of the many that has tried to smuggle others into the camp ground.
Just to save a few bucks? Warning, he finds you.
How did the other person say, he creeps around after dark looking for the sneaky people smugglers.
As for 22 rules that cracked me up.
If anyone even bothered to read them they would see that the 22 rules are for the whole caravan park not just the camp grounds.
As for the cleaning I have seen them spay chemicals and scrub the benches yes they do use the hose but to wash off the excess chemicals.
And yes if you open and close the fridges all the time it will reduce the effectiveness to keep food cold. (Health and safety reasons for those signs.)
All signs are there for the benefit of all of us campers !!! As many of the travelers coming through don't seem to care or respect that some of us are here for the long term that we need to work ect.
On a number of occasions where i have to visit the office. I have found the staff extremely busy but friendly. Yes sometimes they seem a little under pressure trying to meet all the requests and demands made on them.
The phone seems like it never stops. Not to mention the abuse I witnessed someone give the staff member the other day when they couldn't give the customer a water front site. Or the amount of times they had to say they were full and didn't have any powered sites.
And here I noticed someone has complained that they got told about some thieves in the park. What you would prefer not to know. And just get robbed.
I did notice further down in the comments list about a dump point being a hole in the ground in the toilet block.
If you had of asked the staff where it was I am sure they would have told you they are in the laundry. Not the drain in the shower block.
In my time at this park so far I have witnessed many things that astound me and many things where simple respect or common decency would go a long way.
So if you want to have a pleasant stay and don't want to get on the wrong side of the caretaker do what the rest of us do, Obey the few simple rules that are in place for all of us !
