Be aware that some campground only allow two dogs per site.

Amen to that one!! NOTHING ruins a camping experience more than a dog that barks incessantly; except perhaps the construction site style generator.

We travel with a Lab and an English Setter. They are always on a leash of some kind, depending on the activity. We even keep them on a leash when they swim. We would be devastated if they got lost or bothered someone who didn't want to be bothered. We also always have their shot records but have never been asked for them. At the campsite, we use a long training lead attached to something immovable, but when out and about, they are on the required 6 foot leash.

Your front yard is boring
Just wait till they get out in the woods with all those new smells, sights and noises!
LOL!!
Write a list out of the 'things' your dogs should be able to do to enable you to have a worry free camping trip with them.
Practice each item ( or behavior) on the list until each of your 3 dogs obeys them perfectly.
If you have trouble with something, get a dog trainer to come in and give you some pointers.
Probably if you have 3 dogs, one is always the instigator so start working on that one first.

One of the many things that I love about camping is the ability to bring my dog.
However, this feeling has a direct relationship to the obedience level of my Lab; if she was less obedient, I know I would dread taking her. But after many, many, many hours of training I can say that I have the 'perfect' camping dog

IMHO
