Indiana Camping Tips
Help Your Dog be a Good Guest
Campgrounds can be busy, unfamiliar, even overwhelming places for dogs. Perhaps your furry family member is an experienced camper who is ready to stay with us in our campgrounds. Whether you brought Squeakers the Great Dane, or Butch the Chihuahua, there are some basic courtesies we would like you to remember while you are our guest:
Please pick up after your dog. Bring along your extra plastic grocery bags to hold your doggy droppings. Please place the bags in the campground dumpster.
Campground quiet hours (11pm– 7am) apply to all of our guests, including dogs. If your dog is fairly vocal outside of quiet hours, we ask that you leave your pet at home.
Because your campsite is a temporary home away from home, there is no need to be territorial. If your dog is territorial, or just plain aggressive, he or she should be left at home in familiar territory.
If you decide to go exploring, please take your dog with you. You must keep your pet with you at all times. Remember to think ahead for your pet, as well as yourself, and make sure he or she will be able to drink fresh, clean water frequently throughout the day.
Make sure your dog’s vaccinations are up-to-date. This is a state law. Your pet may encounter other pets (or wildlife) who may not be in perfect health, and vaccinations provide protection.
**If your dog finds these rules too strict, please ask about local kennel options.
