For many RVers, a family vacation means not only loading up the kids, the gear and supplies … they also bring along the furriest member of the family! And Cruise America is happy to be a part of it! We love our pets, and we know how much fun it is to take them along. Luckily for travelers, there are many RV parks that are designed to accommodate four-legged guests. Some are equipped with pet-friendly amenities that guarantee that “man’s best friend” will enjoy the vacation as much as his owners do.
As you plan an RV vacation with your pet, be sure to check out the campgrounds along your route to assure that they welcome dogs, cats and other furry friends. While several RV campground managers welcome pets, some facilities simply aren’t as well equipped to accommodate Fido or Fluffy as others. In addition, some campgrounds don’t allow pets at all, making advance planning an absolute must.
As you travel throughout the United States, you will find that many of the RV Parks will accept your pet with open arms. However, not all parks are created equal. There are some facilities that are much better suited to provide the needs of you and your pets. As a matter of fact, there are some campgrounds that stand head and shoulders above the rest when it comes to these special accommodations.
With a name like Four Paws Kingdom, it’s easy to see why this campground in Rutherfordton, North Carolina, is one of the best choices for families traveling with pets. Dog lovers will feel right at home here, and so will their kibble-munching companions. This RV resort is geared to people and their canines. A huge, fully fenced dog park lets dogs run freely while always remaining within safe limits. An agility playground, doggy bathhouse, swimming pond and trails are all part of the amenities.
Of course, even when you’re traveling with pets, it’s nice to have some inclusions that are just for you. The park’s entertainment pavilion assures that everyone will enjoy their stay. The private bathrooms provide an extra dose of luxury. An art gallery and gift shop, along with free Wi-Fi access, make it easy to stay busy and well informed. Fishing and swimming are also available as part of the fun.
If you were looking for the heat of the desert and a great place to RV with your pets, take a look at the Springs at Borrego RV resort and golf course. This park features 90 pull-through sites, as well as 53 back-in sites. And no worries, your puppy is welcomed in every one of them.
This RV resort is nestled within the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, making it one of the quietest (and most relaxing) getaways in the entire state of California. Some of the unique features include a saltwater swimming pool, mineral baths and a golf course. There is also a fitness center on site. Then it’s time to get pampered and massaged at the Wellness Center. You will find fishing opportunities at the catch-and-release pond, while an astronomy center allows guests the opportunity to explore the vast nighttime skies.
In the meantime, your four-legged companion Will thrive in the well-equipped dog park. It’s a large, grassy area that provides all of the space you’ll need for practically unlimited off-leash roaming. The 250-foot dog run gives your pet plenty of room to stretch out and run.
In the state of Massachusetts, located between Boston and Cape Cod, is Normandy Farms, the recipient of two RV Park of the Year awards. This park is one of the best campgrounds in New England. This facility features a Creative Arts Center that offers first run films, as well as craft activities and assorted games. You will also find a disk golf course, two playgrounds for the kids and a fitness center for mom and dad. If that’s not enough physical activity, there is a basketball court, volleyball court and two softball fields. For those who enjoy a gentler way of playing, there are the traditional favorites such as shuffleboard and horseshoes.
Your pets will be thrilled with the Freedom “Tail” Park. This one-and-a-half-acre doggy park comes with an agility course, a doggy drinking fountain and a dog wash station. Pups are offered their own “Canine Coop” while mom and dad get some relaxation. Each coop features a dog house, complete with all of the accoutrements that your pooch needs to be comfortably spoiled. Any dog would rate this park as a five-star winning experience!
Vacationing with pets can be a rewarding and memorable adventure … especially when you’re traveling in a Cruise America rental RV. Not only is it comfortable for Fido, but it is extremely comfortable and convenient for you, too.
