X2.

I get aggravated with pet owners that don't follow the rules and just plain common courtesy....then again I get aggravated at anyone that can't show a little common courtesy...

Which ones?

I have not run across that and have been to most. You can not walk your dog in the loops / on the roads that serve sites that are not designated for pets which is understandable, But you're not restricted on the roads or loops that serve the pet sites. All the ones I have been too have the pet sites separated into loops or large groups. You are also only limited to those restrictions in the campground and other "sleeping areas" such as cabin areas. The entire state park system is open to pets. (other than beaches also).

That's a park I'll have to check out. Dogs barking, leaving stuff around. I like dogs just don't have one and not going to get another one

Gifford Pinchot State Park Campground was the last one that had this rule. I was chased down by the camp host and had directed me to read the sign that said "No dog beyond this point."
You were permitted to walk your dog on the roads that had dog sites.
We were so pissed off that we jumped in the truck and drove around the campground with the our dog hanging out of the window.

What's next stopping the dear, bears,raccoons and fox from taking dump on your site . Who's cleaning that mess up ? How many kids rolled in that?
I agree people should clean up after there pets. But don't stop people from walking around the campground.

Pine Grove Furnace and Poe Valley have similar situations. Fine with us and our 2 dogs as there is plenty of room otherwise to walk.

Site team reminder: These type threads (especially those pertaining to fur family) have historically shown to elicit heated and emotional responses. Please follow the posting guidelines and play nice. This thread is not asking a question and is a FYI thing, that no member here can change the campground policy on.

This thread (pardon the pun) is going to need to be kept on a short leash.

colnel denning st park also in pa.
This isn't a problem of anykind, you can walk them anywhere else in the park.

it also wasn't enforced that I saw, including the park ranger that patrolled through now and then.

I would say most people camping have a pet, DW is my pet. I see it all the time that people aren't picking up after there dogs. That makes it bad for everyone. I hear barking dogs left in campers, there should be a law against that.

I don't know why that pissed you off that much. Its an advertised policy in every PA state park that has pet friendly campsites. Its the reason they tend to keep them all in a specific loop or grouped together. You can walk your dog on the roads that service the pet sections but not on the roads in the non pet sections. Anywhere else in the entire park including trails is open territory, except beaches. Try that in a National Park. I don't know of any that will not allow your pet into areas like amphitheaters and such in the campground. Some have built pet trails from the pet sections to amphitheaters and activity centers.

The thing that sets me off are the people who knowingly reserve a pet site located in a pet loop and don't own a pet. People selfishly do that to get one of the limited full hookup or electric sites that are located in the pet friendly sections when the prime sites are booked in the non pet sections. That effectively denies some pet owner of a pet friendly site. The pet friendly sites are a small percentage of the non pet sites, so non pet people will hog them up and a pet owner can not get a site. At the same time there are empty sites in the non pet section the non pet person could of taken.

The people without dogs reserve them knowing they will be surrounded by dogs, then have a problem with a dog barking and go complain to the rangers or manager. I volunteer at a PA park and have witnessed it often. My suggestion was if you reserve a pet friendly site you should be required to have a pet. The park superintendent agrees but unfortunately policy gets set in Harrisburg.

How long have you been camping in PA parks? You would have really been pissed back before 2008/2009 as no pets were allowed in any PA state park campground before then. I have not kept up with it but as of a couple years ago there were still some that did not allow pets, one being one of the most popular in the entire state, Ohiopyle. I think they opened some sites to pets around 2012 or so. There may still be a few that do not allow pets.
