How to Find Dog-Friendly RV Spots and Campsites

Posted on: July 29, 2020 at 9:21 pm, in

There are a lot of factors to consider when deciding which campsite or RV park to go to next. Price, location, hook-ups, facilities. If you travel with your dog, then one of the most important factors is whether or not your pet is welcome on-site. This article will help you navigate dog-friendly RV parks and choose the right one for your next trip.

Finding dog-friendly campsites online

You’ll usually be able to find a good range of dog-friendly locations just by searching online. Try typing ‘dog-friendly campsites near me’ or ‘dog-friendly RV parks near me’ to see your options in a close radius to you. Or, if you’re looking for a site in a specific city, state, or area, then include that in your search term instead of ‘near me’. You can then check out the websites of each result that comes up to see which suits your needs best.

If you have a specific site in mind, then their website should contain information about whether or not they allow pets onsite. FAQs are often a good place to look. If you can’t find this information, then check their ‘contact us’ page to call or email them with your specific query. You should always find this information out beforehand rather than just turning up with your dog in tow. You might end up getting turned away, leaving you having to look for another option.

Make sure you know the rules

Even dog-friendly campsites will usually have rules when it comes to your pet. Is there an additional fee for bringing your pet along? Can your dog roam free around the campground or does it have to be on a leash at all times? Even if your dog is well behaved off the leash, letting them run free could lead to embarrassing incidents, like your pup stealing a sausage off a neighbors plate.

Even when you take your dog for a walk in the surrounding areas, make sure you know the leash laws and any areas that are off-limits for dogs. Some dog-friendly campsites might even have facilities designed for your pets, like small dog parks or an enclosed area where they can roam free and play with other dogs.

Are you ready to take your pooch on your next adventure with you and the family? Make sure your dog can stay comfortable in your RV, when you’re on the road and when stationary. RV shades can help to keep your RV cool in the sun to make sure you and your pet don’t overheat. Get in touch to get a quote for your RV windshield shades.
