Odd policy at Maple Lakes Seville Oh

While passing through the area we made an overnight stop here. Beautiful campground, nice pool, good utilities , and a nice pull through site. We are traveling in a motorhome and towing a car so a pull thru site is nice not having to unhook car for overnight.
At check-in the lady informed us there was no dog walking allowed! She said your dog (15 lb Boston terrier) can only be on the grass at your site, or be driven to the dog walk area about 1/2 mile from our site!! I asked again if she meant dog had to be on a leash and she said no "there is no dog walking allowed"
We have been RVing for 2.5 years and are constantly on the road . I estimate that 80% of RV people we meet are traveling with a dog.
Our little dog was happy enough to walk on the grass at our site but I imagine folks with bigger dogs might not enjoy this policy. FYI

Sounds like they must have had a lot of issues in the past. Kind of strict but their playground, their rules. Shame that a small amount of people can really ruin things for everyone else.


I wonder if you pulled the dog in a wagon what they would say.


My wife has a ridiculous dog buggy for our mutts. We've used it once in 2 years but I get to haul it around. Yay.

No doubt that they made the policy after rude people didn't clean up after their pets but strange to be in RV park and not see any dogs at all

WOW!
I agree they must have had problems but at this point they might as well change to a "No Pet" policy!

Yes I agree only being there overnight but if we were going to stay for a few days it would make me look somewhere else

There are a few State parks in Pa. That only allow dog walking in the dog section . You can not walk your dog on the roads in none dog camp site roads .

Probably about to piss off some dog owners here, but...........

I think it's a great policy! Even though we are all dog lovers my family does not have a dog. We just don't have the time for it. We are lucky to have a family member with a great dog and we take it whenever she goes. My problem with dog people is they think that they can just walk their dogs anywhere. My kids are constantly rolling around, sitting down, laying on, etc. the ground in my yard/campsite. People often don't pick up the poop and even if they do I don't care to have my kids exposed to dog pee or a spot where some dog just took a dump. When we have our surrogate dog we walk it in OUR yard or campsite or we go to the woods or a dog park.

Maybe I'm a little uptight about it but if I pay for a campsite I shouldn't have to deal with someone bringing their dog to poop in it. Funny thing is I had an argument with a guy about it one time and he said that since he picked up the poop I should just shut up. I told him that I was going to piss and s**t on his pillow but not to worry because I would pick it up. He locked his camper every time he was going more than 10 feet away that whole weekend.

Wonder if they had the same rule applied for children. Children are welcome at our family campground but must be kept quiet and on your site at all times. We have a child play area down the road but your child must be driven to this site.

Won't upset me. We take our dogs where they are allowed and follow the rules. Can't please everyone.
