My father-in-law Always chose to come visit us in St Paul in July-August. Like Mark Twain's father, it is amazing how much the old man learned as I became older.

Love Gilbert Rey campground and their policy of no reservations 7 day max then get out for 7 days before wanting to come back.

Lately we've realized that a lot of the parks we like are county campgrounds yet they are many times unlisted on maps or camping guides. We now search by county name to bring up their campgrounds.

Yes, I have the impression that there are many county and town campgrounds that are not on the usual lists from the big organizations and are not state or federal. We come across them frequently.

View from outside our trailer where we were sitting, glass of wine in hand, watching the hawks dart across the sky. We were in site C11 at El Chorro Regional Park in SLO (CA) which was recommended by some of our fellow "Escapees". Very nice campground with a fantastic dog park within walking distance (it's the photo with the tan bark).

We travel with 2 dogs so we love those cg's with "Dog Parks", too bad they are so hard to find.
Maybe a dog lover will create an "app" for other owners.

I agree Jim. We also have two dogs and really appreciate those dog parks. It would be nice to have a thread dedicated to this topic along with ratings as some parks are definitely better than others. I would give these parks (there are actually two, a "big dog" and a "small dog" park) five stars.

When using campgounds, with most we visit being in a National'/Provincial/State setting, one can usually hike to just outside the campground, and find lots of space for the dogs to run. If not, as a last course of action, we will load up and find a place. With Jasper, there is no getting away without at least an hour a day run. Most days it is just fine though, as we are often out hiking for a few hours anyway.

But, it certainly would be nice to see more areas in campground designated for dog use. I would think a developer of an existing app could easily add a parameter to the search for dog friendly campgrounds, a good idea.

There are some KOA that have "canine parks" where there is a large fenced in area to let them loose as well as some obstacles to play with. When we travel to Osoyoos the dogs are confined either to the truck or the trailer or on leash for days, so if there is a chance to let them go we take it.

Nk'mip has an off leash area on the beach, and lots of room around for walking, which is nice. They are quite pet friendly there. When there, or any other campground, I usually go for a bit walk with Jasper before most folks are up.

When doing the distance travel, we always stop a couple times a day somewhere he can go for a run, for at least a short while.
