So far never. But we always put the valuable things locked up in a vehicle, locked to the trailer or with us.

Never, leave valuables locked up.
A bad day in the woods is better than a good day at work.

Year before last I had a drawbar and hitch ball stolen from the receiver on my truck in the middle of the night while camped at Alcova reservoir, Blacks Beach campground. I camped in the same spot this past fall and had no problems, I also got a locking hitch pin!
The main thing I am concerned with, is there won't be a vehicle at camp all day. We are hunting a HMA and since you can't camp there, we will be camping across the road and driving in each morning. I will also be bringing a small trailer and to avoid the hassle of pulling it around all day, I was going to lock the tongue and leave it at camp. The trailer would be the most valuable thing left but if anything comes up missing it could ruin a trip I been planning and looking forward to for 2 years. Thanks!
I doubt anyone would steal your trailer. Is it an enclosed trailer you can lockup?
If you are worried about the trailer, put a lock on the hitch. You can also chain it to a tree if there are any around. The next thing you can do for your valuables is get a cargo/toolbox that locks and mount it on the trailer if it doesn't have one already. Bolt it down with the nut on the inside of the cargo box on at least one bolt (this will make it where thieves can't unbolt and take the whole box). Store your valuables in there and keep the key with you. We have these on some of our work trailers (similar anyway).
I personally haven't ever had anything taken from me while camping, but we also hunt walk in areas that don't allow camping so we camp in a campground in a small cabin and lock all of our valuables up there or carry them with us. I would say most of your camp gear would be safe no matter where you are, but just don't leave a bunch of stuff laying out or it may be tempting for some.
Now therefore, please take your weapons, your quiver and your bow, and go out to the field and hunt game for me.
