    Anyone know of any dog free campgrounds in the Northeast? The last 5 outings we have had to endure barking dogs all day and most of the night. (Most recent, last weekend was 4AM to 2:30AM) Complaining to park office does nothing. Giving a bad review of the campground does nothing. We own and love dogs but usually board them if we go RVing. Any help finding a quiet dog free campground would be greatly appreciated.

    Out of all the years we full time traveled and then more years of part time travel we have yet to encounter a rv park that had a dog or dogs keep us awake at night. I guess we have been lucky. I know some parks restricted the size of the dog allowed or even where in the park pets were allowed to go but never ran across a totally dog free park. .

    You are certainly lucky to never have had the issues that we have with dogs barking disturbing our sleep and the entire next day. It's not just the barking, but the irresponsible adults. We've seen dogs poop and the owners not clean up after them. On one site after they left dog poop, little kids came in after they left and were playing in the dirt (and the poop). I had to run over and let the parents know what was happening. Pretty disgusting...

    We have had dogs come camping with us for at least 50 years. Back in the day, when there were no rules, it seemed most picked up. Now days, plenty don't. We carry spare poop bags with us. When we see someone that looks like they are going to leave it, we quickly offer one of ours. Very rarely will someone ignore us. I like the parks that say you will be evicted if you don't pick up. I don't know if they would, but it would be nice if they did. We have never been disturbed by barking dogs though. One would think the owners wouldn't be able to sleep through it,

    Four of the eight campsite loops at Letchworth State Park south of Rochester, NY are no-pets.

    yeah I'm not aware of any park that is completely dog free. I do know of 3 or 4 parks in the Northeast that seem to attract responsible pet owners. If your intrested post back and I'll list them. ( no promises but just from my experience)

    I think some of this circles back to how well the park is enforcing their policies, researching reviews, type of park and how well we accept dogs in situations. IMO :cool:

    Overall we never had any issues with any dog except once a couple of years ago but I blame that more on the owner than the dog.

    I agree with others, you will be hard-pressed to find a park that doesn't allow dogs. The best you can do is try to find parks that have rules about dogs and enforce them.
