Not much of a difference I guess, but it sort of sucks when someone does that and then complains about a barking dog when they knew up front they reserved a site in a pet friendly section. That's called a busy body.
When the tent camper takes a full service site and you are without one do you have a conniption and make a scene? Maybe go and bitch at the host or ranger? I doubt you do. Maybe that's the difference.
At some of our State Parks pet owners are the minority.
Take Prince Gallitzen for instance...it has 406 campsites.
138 are pet friendly, 268 are not. That's 33% pet friendly.
Out of those 138 pet friendly sites, 3 are host sites which leaves 135 available.
Of those 135 pet friendly sites 48 have electric only which is 35%. Only 8 of those are 50 amp, the others are 30 amp.
Out of the 269 non pet sites, 4 are host sites which leave 264 available.
Of those 264 non pet sites 148 are electric with 50 amp service and 22 of those are full hook up. No sites are 30 amp. and only 116 are undeveloped.
Does that seem a little lopsided? You have to take into account that on a yearly basis, and proven by real numbers reported by the DCNR who operate the parks, pet friendly sites get double the occupancy rates as non pet friendly sites. Also in the state parks when they made the pet friendly sites available staring in the late 00's, entire loops that had seen little use for years at certain parks suddenly became the most popular areas when pets were allowed.
