We welcome most breeds of dogs to stay at our campground (exempt are American pit bulls, staffordshire terrier, American Staffordshire Terrier, American bullies, Doberman Pinchers or Rottweilers... including any dogs that are mixed with these breeds). Also we do not allow any aggressive dogs in the park.
We ask that all pets be kept on a 6 foot lead at all times and under your control, not tethered to trees or camper etc. and not running loose at any time except in Kamp K9. You must pick up after your pet.
Pets are not allowed in the pool or playground areas.
We offer a dog park for your dog to be able to be off leash and run, attended by the owner. Clean up after dogs is the responsibility of the owner throughout campground, walking trail and in dog park. Barking dogs must be attended to.
Pets are not allowed in the pond. Any aggressive behavior in pets will result in being asked to leave the park for the safety of our campers.

Please do not move the fire pits and keep your fire within your fire pit. You will be notified upon check in if we are ever under a burn ban due to dry conditions.
