We went camping last week at a state park in Indiana that we had not been to before. The first evening immediately after eating supper, we went into the camper for a few minutes and when I looked out the window, there was a big racoon up on the picnic table licking my tabletop gas grill. We chased him away and put the grill away. Later that evening, when it was still light out, we started a campfire. Shortly afterwards, as we are sitting around it, I looked up to see another racoon coming towards me. He must have been only 6 ft. away. It looked like a younger one. We yelled at him and it did no good. We had to throw a stick next to him to get him to leave. He would go a little ways into the woods and come out in another spot. He did this for hours until I finally had enough of chasing him away and we went into the camper. Has anyone had an experience like this with racoons where they come so close and won't stay away? We did not even have any food outside at that time. I was so scared that he would try to come into the camper at night. My big question is...could a racoon actually get into a PUP? Has anyone had one try to get in? The park was also loaded with chipmunks. As we sat at our table outside, one got up on our stove that was attached to the PUP and was trying to get in. Has anyone had them get inside? We were also driving by a tent in the campground and saw a groundhog trying to get into the tent in the middle of the day. I never saw so many critters in one place before.
