Not surprising, I guess. Maybe cold weather will temper some ... hope.

Good to know we are not the only place with inconsiderate people.

I was thinking also sad for the Canadians. Stress and pressures to get away from current situations of daily life in part, unprepared and inexperienced people, and some just plain slobs, I believe.

Wildlife displaced and growing more irritated by humans. Doesn't that sound like some of us?

I’m sure the problem is worse now in all camping areas in both the U.S. and Canada. We have done boat in trips in the Chapleau Ontario area over the past 30 years and I can assure everyone that Some of the Canadians who camp remotely are no better stewards of the environment than some of the people in the states.

"

I go both in the states and in Canada a lot and find the Canadian parks a lot dirtier. I’ll never forget the time I was standing by the fire pit in Algonquin and looking down to find a used condom on the ground. They have an entire force of workers constantly cleaning camps and fire pits out.
