3 dogs and CG

We have 2 small dogs and 1 medium ( 10, 13 and 32 lbs) dog.
We are finding it difficult finding CG that will accept 3 dogs.
What do you guys do? sneak them in and hope for the best?

Course we live in Iowa but have never had an issue with
a cg not allowing dogs.

I have found that many campgrounds limit not only the number; but the breeds of dogs allowed. Most have stated it is a liability issue.

breed not an issue here, sheltie, chihuahua and terrier type. all great dogs with kids. Number is the issue. I get the breed limitation for insurance purposes but # ? they are driving away business.

It may also an be issue of potential noise and nuisance. Imagine a campground if every site had 3 dogs. They may lose your business but gain business from others. It's probably an economic issue and they have it figured out. And the policy may be from hard experience. Not everyone is a responsible pet owner or mindful of the impact on adjacent campers. (I'm not saying you are one of these people). Unfortunately this is a world where too many people are not respectful of others. And it goes way beyond the dog issue. It must be tough to manage a campground when you think about it. Lots of people in pretty close quarters to manage.

We’ve camped numerous times with all three medium size dogs 35lbs up to 50 lbs never had to sneak them in. Camp mostly at Provincial campgrounds occasionally a few private. Only Turkey Point Provincial ever asked if we had dogs on board but simply asked for a description and name. Can’t say I blame them helps to keep things monitored some people aren’t responsible dog owners and they make the rest of us look bad. We take extra care not to offend anyone in the camp; pick up after the dogs, keep them on lease and the big one keep them quiet other campers have told us they were surprised to see one dog let alone three in our site. I believe as a camper that all dogs whether they are large or small should always be on lease, kept quiet and never allowed loose in their campsite. If someone has to shout out to another camper don’t worry he or she is friendly then they aren’t being responsible or fair to their fellow campers.
We’ve had the dogs at Bon Echo, Turkey Point, Emily, Balsam Lake, Bronte Creek, Haliburton Wildlife Reserve and even in the camp kabins at the KOA in Barrie. Spent three days at Awenda but found the dog beach unsuitable too much rock and Georgian Bay too rough for the dogs. The small inland lake is off limits to swimming dogs a shame really.

I wonder what type to camp ground your asking about? Private, state or national park or forest?

We don't stay at private CGs so can't help you there but the state parks that we mostly stay at do not have a problem.

Totally! We have 2 small dogs that always go camping with us. People are surprised to see me walking the dogs as they would never know they are at the campsite otherwise.

any type of CG really, I looked at a few KOA's, other private CG and 2 state parks. They either had a no pet policy or 2 dogs max. I did find a couple where they didn't have a number restriction but this 3 pets thing restrict my travels. .....
We keep them quiet and pick up after them, we are very good pet owners and they are no more bothersome than most kids can be

@ Cattledog, we wanted to go in April and most Ontario parks don't open until May long weekend
which is your favorite provincial park?
