Nothing is more aggravating than to have someone camp near you. The opposite is a problem too....no one else wants you to camp near them. A good rule of thumb is to camp out of sight and sound of all other camps.
That is a good tip. The only case when it is acceptable to camp near other people, is when you are camping in areas right off of a crowded road. (Those areas are practically KOAs for people who are unwilling to pay the camping fee). It is still important to show respect for others, by being considerate with proximity and noise.
