your just going to the wrong places. If you have never been to Savannah, you have probably missed the dog friendliest town in the nation. Dogs are welcome at any restaurant with outside seating, all will provide a water bowl with fresh water and some even have doggie menus.
We have traveled all over the east coast with our thirteen year old Chihuaha, Chichi, ever since he was a pup and he has been welcome most everywhere. Prior to getting the motor home, we would usually stay at the LaQuinta chain of hotels. all are pet friendly would allow quiet pets to stay crated in your room while you went to dinner.
If you took the time to research, you would be amazed at all of the dog parks along the major highways east of the Mississippi.
In the few short months I have been researching RV Campgrounds, I have already realized that the snooty ones aren't for us, too many rules and far too expensive for our taste. We can do without TV, the internet, and swimming pools. We would much rather have nature, stars, and fresh air.
BTW as far as your dog goes, get a good kennel such as this and secure it in the back of the pickup as close to the cab as possible. make sure it is big enough so your dog can move around in it freely so they can find the perfect position to lay down.
