Holiday Fun: Doggy Campgrounds πŸ•οΈ

Dogs love the great outdoors! Pet parents and their furry pets can now enjoy the outdoors safely together. Try a doggy campground designed for canines and their human caregivers.

You won’t find a description of a doggy campground in Wikipedia, but these safe doggy spaces are popping up around the country.


Doggy campgrounds are spaces catered to your dog’s needs from swimming ponds, agility courses, off-leash dog parks and a private doggy bath house. Special events can include a surprise birthday party for your furry pet, holiday celebrations, craft fairs, pet memorial weekends and even weekends just to chill out.

A sample list of doggy campgrounds are:

4 Paws Kingdom Campground and Dog Retreat (Rutherfordton, NC) specializing in fun canine activities for the entire family. Pet parents can rent RV space, a yurt or cabin for your dog and your family.


Camp Gone to the Dogs (Stowe, VT). This doggy camp has been around for 29 years! The camp is “a celebration of dogs and all the ways they bring joy into our lives.”

Camp Unleashed (Berkshires, MA/Blue Ridge, GA/Poyntelle, PA). Their tag line is “Where City Dogs Go To Ruff It.” Spend a weekend in your dog’s natural world with activities like scent game and barn hunting, canine water sports, canoeing and dock diving.


Maian Meadows Dog Camp (Lake Wenatchee, WA). Enjoy an off-leash, relaxing and fun weekend with your dog and other dog lovers. Activities include games like Longest Ears, Shortest Legs, Most Energetic and Most Laid Back and Best Sloppy Kiss contests.

Treat your furry family member to a stay at a doggy campground. You’ll both have a wonderful time!
