Where to begin..... I went this past weekend (July 6, 7 & 8, 2012) with my girlfriend, my daughter and my son-in-law. We were appalled at the conditions under which people "camp". The place resembled what the Super Dome must have looked like after Katrina. Yes, a refugee camp is an accurate description. The sites are right on top of one another and even the "wooded" sites had zero privacy. The entire place had all of the comforts one would associate with a refugee camp as well: music blasting all night, enforcement of the quiet time rules non-existent, people walking arbitrarily through your site BETWEEN your tents for no apparant reason. And the bathrooms? I thought that if I left behind my waste products it would only serve to class up the place. It was thoroughly disgusting. On Friday night, we drove to the "security" booth to ask that they do something to stop the blaring music in the site about 1/2 a football field away from us. This was about 12:30am on Friday night. We were assured that something would be done. Of course, nothing was. I agree with BillSong: if you want peace & quiet, stay far away. I know that I will and I would advise anyone to camp almost anywhere else but Kittatinny.
