  • Treats
  • Collar/leash

Tip #3:
Be sure your pup is up to date on shots and bring a copy of their records for proof of vaccinations.

Tip #4:
A brush and towel are handy if you have dogs that like to roll around on the ground or like the water. Wipe them dry and brush out the dirt and knots before getting back into your RV or cabin.

Tip #5:
Maintain their feeding schedule the same as it is when you are home.

Tip #6:
When camping with dogs, it’s important to give your furry family members lots of love and attention! Never leave them unattended, and unless in the fenced-in dog park, always keep them on a leash.

Tip #7:
Keep them active with playtime in the off-leash dog park and exploratory walks. Dogs can get anxious while sedentary.

Tip #8:
If you have specific concerns about camping with your pet, contact us with any questions you may have. We want you to arrive at the campground as prepared as possible.

Tip #9:
Know before you reserve your spot! Pets are welcome at RV sites and in pet-friendly cabins. Fido-approved cabins can be requested during booking. For 1 pet, there is a flat fee of $25. For 2 pets, there is a flat fee of $50.

Bring the pups along for a stay in an RV site or one of our pet-friendly cabins! Camping with dogs is an experience you’ll never forget. We look forward to welcoming you and your furry companion to Great Escapes North Texas this new year.
