    We are campers with 4 children and it's inside our camper until 7.30 and no leaving except toilet until 8am.

    I would think daybreak, tbh. When I've been camping, I don't even know what time it is... I wake with the sun and go down not long after it does.

    I would be pretty p*ssed in your position anyway though OP. I am not exactly tolerant of random kids, and I am very intolerant of being woken up by someone else. Combine the two and there's no doubt they'd have heard me b*tch and moaning about what inconsiderate expletives they were.

    (Yes, I realise my paragraphs contradict... but I am one of those people you just don't wake up unless the house is on fire).

    I would say daylight.
    When we were camping we would often be up then to go fishing or go looking for birds or animals. It would be pretty hard to keep kids inside a tent from dawn until 7 or 8am like some pp are suggesting. You don't take kids camping to keep them cooped up inside!

    I think if you want peace and quiet you have to camp in isolation (like in the bush) or you need to be inside a building (like a hotel room).

    Day break.

    Whenever we go camping there is usually people up before day break to go fishing, chatting and starting cars etc. anyway!

    Where we go camping the kookaburras start up just before daybreak but my kids sleep thru the noise. I am an early riser so up just before the kookaburras start to walk the dogs but I try to be quiet. We also have a lot of noise from the dingys heading off for fishing. What bothers me more is those who party on til the early hrs, they are usually the ones who cause the most disruption and leave rubbish all over the place.

    Yeah we camp heaps. Whenever the kids get up. We dont have rules as such. They will usually wake around 6 to 7 am they're kids and excited. Part of the fun I say. But if they were really stupidly loud or disruptive id rein them in. Its usually just chatter and giggles oh and I hear the farts! Which they think are hilarious in a tent!

    This is why I don't enjoy camping in close proximity to other people. I like to sleep in a bit and I hate being woken up . I like camping when my tent is sort of far away from others..

    We try to keep our 4 quiet til at least 7am in our tent sometimes we get up earlier and give them breakfast to keep the noise down but they aren't allowed to go running around the campground til at least 7 or so.

    Why 7am?? For me 7am is wasted daylight no matter where I am. 6am is an acceptable time to start my day. It would drive me insane laying quietly in case I interrupted someone "wasting" their time by sleeping cause then in turn they're also wasting mine.

    What if someone elses acceptable time is 9am and your kids disturbed them? (Hypothetically).

    Of all the things I dont understand, people thinking their way of doing things is far more normal and acceptable and less annoying than someone elses is really up there.
