Some campgrounds have sprinkler systems and don't want anything stuck in the ground. Always best to ask the campground management first.

The best investment is getting a professional dog trainer to teach you how to work with your dog. If you spend the time with your dog it’ll pay dividends for the rest of the dog’s life. My dogs will stay by our side as long as I want and can walk next to us without a leash (but I always have a leash on per the rules). It’s so nice to have these dogs behave better than our kids ever did.

Have used the X pens for 20 years from collies, to Cavaliers and now our two small kiddo's. I agree it's best to inquiry about using a pen. I know recent changes to Thousand Trail parks is two fold, the pens should be contained within the area of your awning and no more than 24" in height.

Our dogs are never outside without us sitting with them and we sometimes leash our excitable one in addition to the pen.

15 foot leash connected to stabilizer jack but she just sits with us and doesn’t bark or bother anyone.
She is a good camper!

One thing to remember is that it isn't just about how well-behaved YOUR dog is, but about all the other dogs and people.

I've had kids run straight into my campsite at my dogs. I've had loose dogs run into my campsite. I've had coyotes come near. And so on.

The last time I used a tether, two loose schnauzers stood just out of my dogs' reach, marked the area, and antagonized my dogs.

Having the dogs on a leash keeps them close enough to me that they are less stressed and/or intimidated. And I am close enough to them and have direct control over them so I can quickly move them away from a potential situation.
