Dog Friendly Campsites

Camping during the summer months is a quintessential American activity. We hate leaving our dogs behind to explore the great outdoors, so we've rounded up some great campgrounds that allow our furry best friends to join in on the fun. 

Everglades National Park

If you're near the south, the Everglades in Florida are a beautiful place to explore. Your furry best friend can stay with you in designated campgrounds and picnic areas. You can even take them along on a boat ride through the swamps. View their website  for full details to plan your trip.

Rocky Mountain National Park 

Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado is a top summer destination. Here you can bring you pup along on walks on the paved roads, campgrounds, and picnic areas. Unfortunately, dogs aren't allowed on the trails. However, Arapaho and Roosevelt National Forest nearby have many trails you can hike with your dog. Find them here

These are just some of the top destinations we found throughout the country. Check out our friends at to search more dog friendly campsites near you. Don't forget your Flea Away and DE to keep your camping area and dog safe wherever you go! 

Make sure you do your research before heading to a specific campground to be sure and follow the rules. Always be a good earth citizen when visiting with nature and pick up behind yourself and your dog.
