5 Best Places to Camp with Your Dog

Your beloved dog is not just a pet. He’s your best friend and part of the family. So why not take him camping, too? These five campgrounds are dog-friendly, so you’ll never have to leave your furry friend at home while enjoying the great outdoors.

1. Shenandoah National Park

Out of 500 miles of scenic trails, there are only 20 miles that do not allow dogs. That leaves plenty of territory for you and your pet to explore! On a long hike, enjoy seeing the beautiful waterfalls or spend some time bird-watching.

2. Great Smoky Mountains National Park

As long as your dog is on a leash no longer than 6 feet, he can go almost everywhere you can, including the campgrounds, picnic area, and the Gatlinburg Trail and Oconaluftee River Trail.

3. First Landing State Park

For a small fee of five dollars a night, you can bring your pooch with you camping in any of First Landing State Park’s 200 campgrounds. The park offers a wide variety of activities for you and your furry friend to enjoy, such as swimming, hiking, or picnicking.

4. Normandy Farms Family Camping Resort

Take your whole family, including your dog, with you camping in Massachusetts. From hiking to sports to swimming, this beautiful camping resort offers plenty of activities for everyone to enjoy.

5. Grand Canyon National Park

Experience one of top places to visit in the US with your doggie. This incredible site is even better when you’re in good company! As long as your dog’s on a leash, she can go on any of the trails above the rim and in the developed areas.

Don’t let your beloved pets sit at home bored this summer. Bring them on your next adventure and enjoy camping together! To find more campgrounds that are pet-friendly, search by state at Pet-Friendly Travel.
