Wherever you roam on your RV adventures, most will agree that the entire family should come with. That includes the furry and four-legged. Unfortunately, not all campgrounds are on the same page, charging pet fees or refusing to allow dogs on the premises. To avoid any upset and make things a little easier, we found four of the dog friendliest campgrounds in Pennsylvania. These sites around the state are perfect for your best friend, as long as they remain on a leash.

This forested campsite offers both a connection with nature and echo of American history. Near downtown Gettysburg, this KOA campground welcomes your pup to join your tour though the historic battlegrounds. It also offers a pet playground for some exercise and agility training.


Before you choose a campsite, it’s always smart to check if pets are allowed on the premises. While the campgrounds listed here don’t mind, many will have pet fees and breed restrictions. We don’t want any pooch left behind, so make sure to double check online or by calling the campground! Happy travels to you and your furry family!
