From my experience at Shuswap Prov Park over two summers, it sort of runs in cycles. We'd go for a couple weeks then all hell would break lose. Even during the day. In two years we never caught anyone and that wasn't from lack of trying. We'd lie doggo out in the weeds and nothing...go have lunch one day and the radio would just take off, with reports of mad campers, coming back from the beach to no beer, no dinner steaks.

And the economics of having the police spending much in the way of resources just doesn't make sense. A cooler is anywhere from 20-100 bux. Some beer or food...a few more dollars vs $100,000 a year for a patrol officer doing that rather than their regular work. I know..it sucks, but there it is.

understandable, however when several sites are being hit every other evening for weeks on end, then I would say its time to bring in the police, confidence in the security of the park, everyone's ability to relax and enjoy themselves without having to worry about someone prowling around your trailer or tent at night while you and your children are sleeping.......

I have a police officer that lives next door to me and he is an avid camper, he said himself "give me a free site for a weekend and I'll catch the guy"

We had a rum bottle stolen off our picnic table one night. Unfortunately for the thieve it contained naphtha fuel.

The original naphtha can got dropped and punctured and the only available empty, none plastic, container was a rum bottle and necessity being the mother of invention, the bottle became a fuel container.

I often wonder if the thief survived?


LMAO !!!

gets what he deserves, cough cough puke gag, geez that might curb one persons stealing habbits

I doubt this was the work of some 13 or 14 year olds, and it was definitely not someone in the park(a camper), the rangers found a couple coolers and non alcoholic contents dumped out outside of the campgrounds, like it was a gathering point, constant repetition, someone is stockpiling,,, either for winter or to sell. I have a strong suspicion that its someone over 19 is alone or with buddies at one of the cottages.

I have Never had this happen in a provincial park, I have had it happen a few times in conservation areas, but there is a noticeable difference in the to types of parks,, and how they are run,, if you are in Ontario or spent time in several of both you would know what I mean. and have had it happen in private parks.

when ever I have run into this in the past its only 2 or 3 coolers, not 8 9 or 10, and its a couple teens or early 20 somethings that run out of booze, some end up getting caught the next day when they leave all the evidence laying around their campsite, especially when theres wine bottles that they can't explain where they got because they can only be bought at the winery which at that particular place is 100 and something miles away and they have no clue where.

Theft is theft no matter how you try to dress it up, its not kids being kids,,, its someone being a criminal and they need to be treated as such, back when I was a kid you did not do sh** like that cause if you got caught you would get beat real bad not just by the person you stole from but your parents to,, and the cops if they were called, there was non of this whiny liberal BS "ohhhh but he/she is just a kid,,, being a kid"

Put a hornets nest in a cooler. By the time they drag and shake it to the woods, they should be good and awake- even at night!

Problem is, you'll be tired the next day from laughing all night when you hear the screaming and cursing.

In Algonac State Park in Mich. it happens where the highway goes past the CG in the fron row of campers. I know that isn't in Canada but if you look across the river you see Canada.

The only thing I ever had stolen at a campground was a hot dog......Laid it down on a picnic table seat that was beside me.....got some mustard...reached back over to get it and it was gone.......No I wasn't drunk.
I put another on there for bait, and out of the dark comes a really big coon. Freaked the daughter out, and she wouldn't get out of the camper for the rest of the evening.
