Los Angeles is famously Fido-friendly, home to hundreds of places that welcome pup patrons.

Treat your pup to a once-in-a-lifetime experience by spending a night (or five) camping out under the starry SoCal sky. Keep reading to discover the top dog-friendly campgrounds near Los Angeles. Once you've picked the "pawfect" place, all you need to do is book a site and pack your bags! (Don't forget to include proof of rabies vaccination and your dog's license, as most dog-friendly campgrounds in California require both at check-in.)
This 14,000-acre expanse in the Santa Ana Mountains just 45 minutes from DTLA is the "pawfect" place for outdoorsy pups and people. The cozy campground here features only 20 sites with access to showers, restrooms, drinking water, and grills. Canine campers are welcome, with a few caveats. Steer clear of backcountry areas and trails and stick to the Rolling M. Ranch Day-Use Area. Pups are also permitted on Bane Canyon Road.
