Beagle wants to travel too

We have been enjoying our 2016 AI for almost a year now, enjoying State and National Parks. Unfortunately our Beagle is not allowed inside these beautiful parks even with a leash. She loves to travel in our AI but often times we must leave her home.

What has been the experience of this community in handling pet restrictions in State and National parks?

They are certainly allowed in the Parks, just not on most trails.

We travel with two Great Danes everywhere; over 40,000 miles and 44 states so far. State & Nat'l Parks/Monuments, etc., are not that different from other private RV establishments which restrict pets from running free, being in certain areas, or entering buildings. All 'developed' locations require you to leash and cleanup after them. Remote locations like BLM or forest lands rarely impose restrictions. Take your beagle along so he can enjoy your company and not suffer separation anxiety from being left by his 'pack.'

Which specific locations have told you otherwise?

We've only run into one State Park that wouldn't allow dogs, and that was just in one section of the campground. Charlie has gone with us everywhere else, with the restrictions mentioned above.

ETA: I should have added that the section that wouldn't allow dogs is very close to a small stream that could potentially have alligators, which could be a problem with small pets.

Personally, I flat won't go places that don't allow dogs at all. That said, as long as I comply with the rules, my dogs have been welcome.

I'd say that putting the service dog vest on one that is not prescribed and certified is unacceptable. But it is a good question to take to my book club in November, we are reading "The Righteous Mind" and this is a good test question.

Which PA state park did you check? I know that Promised Land State Park explicitly allows leashed dogs in certain loops.

Definitely take the doggie. It's one of the top reasons people start RVing in the first place. Traveling thru the Great Plains states, we have yet to encounter a state park or Corp campground that didn't allow properly leashed pets. (We've traveled with 5 dogs BTW.) Many of the National Forest campgrounds allow pets with the same rules. National Parks can vary. But with a bit of research before you hit the road, you can have a really good idea where your fur baby is allowed. National parks, forests and Corp campgrounds can all be found on Recreation.gov. Most states have comprehensive websites for all their parks. Good Sam has a really big RV camping book they put out every year. Their emphasis might be more on private RV parks but they do list all camp grounds by state. They're big supporters of RVers traveling with pets, so the guide does mention if pet friendly. When in doubt, call ahead.

It's a little more complicated than dogs being allowed

For example in Yellowstone, you will get in trouble for leaving a dog alone and tied up, because they are sitting ducks for predators

Leaving an animal in an RV in warm weather is a no no

In cool weather the dog might bark while you are away.

In hot weather, you can't leave your dog in the RV, to dine or shop.
