When it comes to picking an RV park, are Fido and Fluffy are more important to you than s’mores and slideouts? If so, you should paws to read about the following private campgrounds catering to man’s best friend. Not only are they “dog-friendly,” but your pooch will be treated like the Hound of Heaven! Take a look at three campgrounds that will send your best buddy into a tail-wagging frenzy:
This private dog retreat is the cat’s meow (although there are no felines to be found here). Canines revel in the lap of luxury with four dog parks, an agility course, a swimming pond, hiking trails, doggie bathhouse, and a grooming station.
Humans are not forgotten either, with back-in and pull-thru campsites that include a fenced yard for your four-footed friends, a bathhouse with private restrooms, showers, and laundry room. A camp store is on-site, along with a large covered pavilion for community events and entertainment.
Your pup will enjoy choosing his playground each day: from a dog park for smaller breeds, one for larger dogs, a tiny tots park, or the private escape park. Each has its own charm and loyal clientele. Then let him dog paddle his way across the swimming pond, where sticks can be retrieved, and splashing is encouraged.
For more exercise, take your pooch on a hike along several scenic trails at this western North Carolina location. Then pamper him with a spa treatment at the doggie bathhouse, where cleanliness is next to dogliness. And while you’re at 4 Paws Kingdom, be sure to participate in the varied scheduled events like “Woofstock” and “Barktoberfest.”
A new campground that looks just as enticing to humans as it does to canines, the Wanderlust Crossings RV Park in Weatherford, Oklahoma, has two beautiful dog parks. There is also a dog run available for those who crave more adventure. If Fido needs some sprucing up, the campground has a large self-service grooming station on site.
Two-legged travelers will find spacious campsites with full hook-ups, fire pits, and picnic tables. The campground has bathroom and laundry facilities, along with a playground, TV lounge, rec room, and shuffleboard. Residents will enjoy a koi pond, daily trash service, and propane is available on site.
Follow the Mother Road just west of Albuquerque to find the Route 66 RV Resort, where dogs AND people are treated to excellent facilities.
Pups will love the two large dog parks provided for their furry fun, and the thoughtful park owners have included a dog wash station to keep coats shiny and clean. The park is accessible to golf carts, too, so if RVers travel with one, Fido can hang his head in the breeze while making the rounds at the campground.
Human visitors will discover large campsites with pull-thru and back-in spaces, luxury sites, and an RV-specific camp store. The campground offers a pool with cabana, putting greens, pickleball courts, sand volleyball, and a rally barn for large group gatherings, along with a bathhouse and laundry facilities.
With a casino on-site, the RV resort provides free shuttles from the park to place your bet at the blackjack table, or enjoy dinner at one of five dining venues. Take in a show, then hop on the shuttle back to your rig, where your buddy will be waiting for the next day’s adventures!
Many campgrounds realize how many RVers travel with their pets, and most are responding with amenities to cater to our four-legged friends. These are just a few, so be on the lookout for dog-friendly RV parks along your travel route. You are sure to receive the bark of approval from your pet!
