Have you ever thought about dog friendly camping? No? Well, let’s go camping! Whoo!

I can already smell the roasting marshmallows by the fire, that’s making my mouth water.

The feeling of being out in the wild (close enough too anyway) and getting bitten a million times by mosquitoes, no matter how many cans of bug spray I use.

Telling spooky stories out in the wild preventing me from sleeping. On the plus side, I can just gaze up at the stars all night.

Hang on…

What about your fur-baby?

It’s never easy leaving a loved one behind and left in the care of someone else, regardless of who it is. I always end up calling a few (hundred) times a day to check in.

So instead, take them with you! Yup! your read correct, lets go dog friendly camping.
dog friendly camping
I already know what you’re thinking. And I’ve taken away that stress of where you can stay that is pet-friendly.

So, I’ve created the ultimate guide of Australian camping sites that welcome our fur-friends.

All of the campgrounds and holiday parks that are listed below are all pet-friendly.

Tip – There are a few rules that you need to adhere to, so be sure to check out their website before making any bookings.

First Things First: Before you hit the road

Health Check and Vaccinations

Check with your vet before you head off. To ensure your fur-baby’s vaccinations are up to date and that they are in tip-top shape to hit the road.

Pet Friendly First Aid Kit

You never know if you’re going to need it and hopefully you won’t, but having a first aid kit is great for a just-in-case purpose.

Secondly, let’s go through some dog camping etiquette so you’re fully prepared.

Dog Camping Etiquette

Scoop your Poop!

Nothing worse than seeing poop on the ground around the camp sites. So take some poop bags.

Identification Collar and Leash

Must wear an identification collar at all times and remain on a leash. We don’t want any dog fights or dogs wandering off into other people’s campsites.

Obedience

It’s courtesy for your pet to be trained in simple commands like sit and stay.

No Barking

Continuous barking (yappy dogs that bark at every.single.thing) will annoy your fellow camp goers and also upset other dogs and wildlife.

Never Leave your Dog Unattended

Being in a new place and in unfamiliar surroundings your pooch may get scared or even lost if left unattended.

Most Importantly

HAVE A PAWSOME TIME!
