There are garbage bins placed throughout the camp’s grounds which help keep the campground clean and make it easy for pet parents to pick up after their furry friends. Please pack plenty of doggy waste bags to last your whole stay. Although dogs should be kept leashed most of the time, there is a large, grassy field where they can enjoy leash-free fun and exercise. Although the grass is mowed and well-maintained, check your dogs for ticks after any prolonged stays outdoors to keep them healthy and safe.
The campground features a camp store with firewood for sale, a stocked fishing pond, a heated swimming pool, a clubhouse, and an LP station. If that wasn’t enough, there is a playground for kids to enjoy and plenty of grassy space for owners to walk their dogs.

From fishing in the pond, swimming in the pool, and hiking through the beautiful country terrain, both kids and adults will find plenty of fun ways to spend time. Make sure to check out the grassy, mile-long trail around the pond and through the forest, especially if you and your leashed canine companion enjoy birdwatching. If you want to explore the surrounding area, you can rent out a bicycle on-site.
