Top 10 RV Parks to Go Camping With Your Dog

If you’re an animal lover, you know how painful it can be to leave your four-legged best friend at home while you’re out enjoying your vacation. Well, with these amazing RV parks, you can go camping with your dog and take advantage of tons of pet-friendly amenities. Keep reading for the best places to go camping with your dog! 

How to Go Camping With Your Dog

If you’re ready to go camping with your dog, there are a few things you need to keep in mind. Most importantly, remember that an RV is a vehicle. When it gets hot outside, your RV is not a safe place for your pup to be left unattended. Even if you run the air conditioning, you should have safety protocols in place, like a temperature monitor to alert you if the AC goes out. This alert will give you enough time to rescue your pet from the heat if necessary. 

Also, not all RV parks and local attractions are dog friendly. Make sure you do your research beforehand so you don’t find yourself without appropriate accommodations. For example, most National Parks don’t allow dogs on most trails.

With a little planning, though, you might be able to find a National Forest or other activity nearby where Fido can come along! 

Dog-Friendly RV Parks

Dog-friendly RV parks are not too difficult to come by, although some places do restrict breeds or size. Additionally, most RV parks have rules that your dog cannot be a nuisance or vicious.

If your dog likes to bark at everything or is still working on its socialization, you might need to practice these things before you go camping with them at an RV park. Remember, “pet-friendly” does not mean “anything goes.” Your dog should still be well-behaved even at a pet-friendly campground. You might want to brush up on the rules for RVing with your pets and the Golden Camping Rules.

Fort Wilderness was a fantastic trip for me and my pup Jacque, he’s a four year old min schnauzer who loves to run and play. Disney was wonderful taking care of Jacque while I enjoyed the parks. The campground as all things Disney, was immaculate.
