If you were told that the RV park you normally stay at was going to add a new charge of $5.00 per dog per day to their already high costs what would your response be ?

Pay it or find another park.

Their park: their rules.

Sounds okay to me. I don't have any dogs. I'm not particularly a dog person, either, so I don't think it horrid that they have a policy that may discourage people with lots of dogs from camping there.

As others said, their park, their rules; and it's your money and your patronage, so if you don't like their rules, take your patronage and money elsewhere that is more agreeable to you. If you prefer, you could think of it as a simple fee increase of $5 times however many dogs you have, rather than a dog-specific fee, and figure if you think it's worth paying that much per night for you.

My only choice would be to find another place. However, having been in the dog show and pet community for over 35 years, and seeing how so called 'responsible' dog (or other) owners and handlers can and do literally trash a motel, hotel, or campground, I can understand the extra charge.

We look at the final nightly price w/o much regard for how it's tallied. If we're okay with it and feel the campground is worth it then we stay. If not, we go somewhere else.

Too many people don't pick up after their pets. If the owner has to pay someone to constantly go around and clean up dog do, you couldn't blame them for charging extra. They could just raise the rates, but that wouldn't be fair to others who don't own pets. According to EVERYONE, they always pick up after their pets. The evidence seems to say otherwise.

We didn't have our dogs with us very often but I have no issue with that. As winniman stated too many people don't pick up after their dogs. I personally like the campgrounds that start with a base rate for 2 (as long as it's not over the top) and then do an a la carte type fee structure. I always willingly paid for 4 when we only had 3 in the hopes that the person with 5 or 6 got a bit of a break. Shop with your feet. I also believe that if it's where you want to be when you want to be there it's not too expensive but I'll also be the first to say we had a pretty large budget for travel.


I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be Douglas Adams

RV-less for now but our spirits are still on the open road.
