Camping with your dog

Sunday, May 26, 2013
posted by Jim Murphy

If you are going camping this summer and intend to bring your dog, you must be prepared and follow the rules. Make sure that your dog is trained and follows your commands. Respect the other campers. Keep your dog on a leash or make sure he is restrained. Control his barking and always clean up after him. Remember that other campers will also have their pets along so make sure that you keep your dog a safe distance away from them to prevent a loud dog scuffle. Be careful, keep your eye on your dog all the time and never let him run loose.

Here are some general tips to follow when camping.

CAMPING RULES, SAFETY TIPS, AND OTHER HELPFUL INFORMATION

OBEY” “QUIET TIME‐ Be a good campground neighbor. Don’t make loud noises, especially at  night. Posted quiet hours are typically from 10 p.m. – 6 a.m. At other hours, limit the use of    generators to no more than one hour at a time.

VEHICLE USE ‐ Motorcycles, ATVs, UTVs, etc. are not allowed inside campgrounds, except for coming and going from your campsite to other locations. Their use is sometimes not allowed on
county roads. Drive all vehicles slowly through campground loops and watch closely for pedestrians.

• DOGS ‐ Dogs must be leashed or otherwise physically restrained in campgrounds. Do not allow pets to harass visitors, dogs or wildlife. Do not leave pets unattended. Control barking.

• CAMPFIRES ‐ Campfires must be inside fire grates provided at campsites. When no one is physically attending a campfire, it must be put out completely. Pour water on the fire and stir ashes until there is no smoke. Fire restrictions in effect will be posted at the entrance.

• TRASH ‐ Use trash receptacles provided. Some primitive campgrounds may expect you to pack out your own trash. Do not burn trash, because many materials will not burn to ash and leave
debris behind. Leave your campsite clean when you depart.
PROTECT VEGETATION ‐ Do not break off limbs, drive nails into or carve into bark of trees. This allows insects and disease to enter and can weaken or kill trees. Bring firewood with you or
check with campground hosts for firewood on sale. If you collect firewood, you may collect only dead wood on the ground. Do not damage shrubs. Walk on dirt or gravel to keep grass and
plants alive. Leave wildflowers for others to enjoy.
