Thought we could start a listing of campgrounds that are pet friendly. Not just because they say they are in their advertising, but because you have stayed there and know for a fact that they are pet friendly. Might make it a little easier for us with pets to find new campgrounds to stay at.

These are the one's I can think of now:

Pioneer Park
Laurel Hill State Park
Kozy Rest

There are more campgrounds that are very pet friendly than ones that do not want pets there...

The really absolute worst campground I have ever found for dogs is Prince Gallitzin State Park.

The rangers there have devised a complete list of where dogs are and are not allowed... They are like dog nazis!

They are unbelievably ridiculous about controlling every thing about your dogs...

You are not allowed to walk them on any roads except the ones in the pet loops... They only allow dogs on certain trails around the campground... Never seen anything like it...

The pet loops are in the loops that have very limited electric sites and are always booked... Try getting a pet site there through the year... They really new to add more pet stes, but I dont think that will ever happen...

Anyone else have any hoorible pets campgrounds? Or experienced PG State Park at all?

clear creek is pet friendly.they do watch very closely for leash laws and hard to let him run. dogs need freedom to run and play.they have a play ground for the kids.need one for pets too.

Kenshire Kampsites is pet friendly. I have stayed there many times with my dogs. They are located off RT 6 in Gaines, Pa on Pine Creek.

Very pet friendly...
Sill's Campground
Twin Grove
Mountain Vista

Says they are pet friendly but aren't...
Evergreen Lake...allows pets but you cannot take them for a walk.

Agree on pet friendly
Twin Grove
Sil's Campground (we actually went there before we owned a dog - I will note there were a lot of BIG dogs there, if you have a family member that is not fond of big dogs you may want to avoid)

Also can recommend pet friendly:
Jonestown KOA
Sun Valley in Bowmansville

Out of PA - but pet friendly:
American Heritage - Williamsburg VA

Wow- what a great thread- it is awesome to know this stuff in advance-
We have a dog and the biggest thing about going on vacation before was finding someone to watch her- she can't go to a kennel- she has such a nervous belly!
it is such a less stressful situation knowing we can take her where we are going with a camper now

I know Black Moshannon was very easy to take her to- everyone who had a dog- was walking them and noone bothered you

Twin Grove has a nice sized, fenced in dog park/ playground. Seems to be a very popular pooch hangout.
