Hello all. We have 3 pugs and they always travel with us. That was the reason for a TT. If you all ever come through Rutherfordton, North Carolina. There is a all dog camp ground just for dogs and their owners. You can look it up at. Www.4pawskingdom.com.

3 Dogs -- No problems

We camp with our mini long-haired doxie and 2 Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. They are one of the reasons we have a Class C (I work for a hotel company and could stay cheaper at our hotels ). We have never been turned away (usually camp in private camp grounds up and down the East Coast). As has been pointed out, in a few places (including Fort Wilderness at Disney) there is a small charge for having the dogs (not per dog) -- 5$ a night seems to be the average. While I don't necessarily agree (hey, they don't charge for kids), it is a small price to pay to bring them along. We have a fencing unit that we use to fence in our outdoor rug and it works well for the little guys. They are usually so tired after a day of play, they sack out early and aren't really barkers anyway.

I want to second the recommendation for Four Paws Kingdom Campground in Rutherfordton, NC -- it is a dog focused campground with wonderful activities for the dogs and adults. However, younger children aren't accepted and there are no activities for kids.

Just came back from Lake George RV park with our 3 dogs and no problem at all. We walk them twice a day minimum and they enjoy the fresh air with us. Barking is kept to a minimum

We have a 7 yr. old Lhasa and a 1 yr. old mix. We take them with us all the time. The 7 yr. old has excellent camping manners and hopefully the 1 yr. will learn from her. So far so good! Some CG charge extra for each dog and some don't, but that will not deter us if we really like and enjoy the CG.

We have never been to a campground that had a fee for dogs.What reason do they give to justify the fee?

Biggest problem we have is when owners go off and leave their dog/s in the trailer and they bark constantly. Becoming more & more evident. We have a dog and if we leave her, she has a bark collar on which stops her immediately from barking over one time. Love dogs, hate when they bark constantly with the owners standing there acting like nothing is happening.

I totally agree, that's why we are getting ours bark collars before we go in Sept. When we reprimand Daisy for barking she looks at us, laughs and keeps barking!

hahahahah! no kidding! our Sheltie is like that!
but we take them for a looooong walk before we go, shut the windows if hot and turn the air on and a fan just in case the air malfunction. Shut all blinds, turn up the radio.
I tested them by driving away, and walking back and waiting, no bark.
I then asked neighbours when I returned to be sure, and all was quiet. Seems like they are too tired to care and thankful for the nap time.

Barking, laughing dogs!

Yes that's what we do, and we'll have to always remember to walk them. Thanks for the reminder, although we generally walk them for their potty times.
