Noisey, smelly bloody things, they should be banned at any camping area, I hate them and the people that use them to run things while camped because they too stupid to use 12v or gas and don't give a rats arse how it affects others around them.
Our last camping trip, 3 young blokes camped for one night and ran their generator all night until they went too bed and for what, to run one fluro light
We have never had the need for a generator and have never even considered one, solar is the way to go, it costs around the same price to set up solar as it does to buy a good genny and if we have started to lose power and can't charge via our solar panel because of bad light or rain, I just hook up an inverter and battery charger to the cars auxillary battery and charge the battery that way, usually overnight.
