    I would do this - IF it was catered for. OK it is catered for dogs that you can leave on the patio tied up (around my area anyway) but none with actual little yards for them. Give me an excercise area for my dog and I would be there in a flash!

    The place that I go to when we go away I actually sit outside and plan what I would do if I owned the place (a chronic condition of mine. LOL!) There are 2 massive cabins and two larger cabins that are in a row down the end of the caravan park away from everyone else. There is actually room to put yards onto these cabins and then market them as dog friendly cabins - charge a bit more as well as a bond to cover any damage and your good to go! I have no idea about the legalities of it but it would be a great idea if it is legally possible!

    I love the idea of taking my dogs with me, but I have only camped once in my entire life and I hated it!

    *SOB* I have to camp at the Blues Festival at Easter and I'm dreading it - but looking forward to all the music!

    I've only been camping with Tay twice and it was in a state forest. I like being surrounded by nature. And it's fun going exploring.

    Ok I voted other.

    Explanation:

    Its not really camping but a getaway of sorts. My mum owns a cabin in a caravan park and I an go there with the dogs.

    Inside the caravan park is on-lead however as long as it is not a busy time i.e. easter etc the caravan owner knows me, my dogs and my mum and her dogs. He has no problem with us letting them out off lead for toilet time as they stick close, we pick it up and they return as soon as called...no matter what the distraction.

    He also lets us take them down the back of the park where its more open paddocks and let them off lead to stretch their legs and to play fetch etc.

    The river is literally a 2 second walk away and the murray mouth is a 10 minute drive so they get lots of exercise too.

    Its a great place and normally when we all go there noone wants to leave...even the dogs lol

    Hubby and I go camping a lot. Normally it's bush camping, but I loved it when we went beach camping up north last year and I'm bugging hubby to take us again! We hired a 4WD and spent 4 days exploring and camping. It was amazing!

    I'm up for any kind of camping/outdoorsy stuff - I just don't like it when it's stinking hot!

    ETA: I adore going fishing and our camping trips usually find us somewhere we can fish and where it's safe to eat the catch. There's nothing better than really fresh fish cooked on a campfire!

    I can't wait for our first trip with Batty!

    Nearly all of the camping we do incorporates fishing and i dont think Scoobs would like sitting in the boat for 8 or 9 hours at a time and most of the spots we go to are in national parks, so no dogs allowed.
    I'm looking forward to the time that i do get to take him.
