Pets not allowed?


If a campground does not allow pets, would that include indoor-only pets? (e.g. A cat in the RV)

It's worth calling and asking, we have experienced both yes and no answer that that question at different parks.

hmmmm......no pets allowed written .....would most likely mean no we do not accept pets on the property.....due to abuse parks that post it have there reasons........dogs not being cleaned up after.....dog bites......cats not being cleaned up after......cats left behind and becoming ferril around the campground.......they should just let the pets in and remove the people....

However,
our experience has been that most times when they refer to pets they mean dogs. we travel with a cat and whenever we are asked about "pets" we say we have a cat and are told "oh well thats ok" like cats don't count.

PS we always tell them about the cat because God forbid there was a fire when we weren't home.  I sure would want them looking for my cat!!

As Mike said, they may have their reasons. In a private CG, that would be their right. "No Pets" policy CG owners, presumably, are comfortable with the lost potential revenue caused by poteniallly negative PR aura that will get around from word of mouth or the internet.  Such policies tend to be overreactions that throw the baby out with the bathwater... but that is their call. It's too bad that such policies also tend to come about from being more lenient with reasonable requests to "clean up after your pet" and "all pets must be on leashes" etc. and then irresponsible pet owners ignore such rules to the detriment of everybody because of some failure to pay proper attention to their pets or some misguided self-righteous attitude they or their pets are better than the standard or rule made by the CG owner. Lack of even-handed enforcement is also a problem.

If we encounter a CG with such a policy we will move on and note it accordingly. It is, what it is. So much for the Golden Rule.cry

Sue, any CG that says "No Pets" then allows cats, is being prejudicial and opening themselves up for potential legal action in the worst-case scenario if they POd the wrong person, or more likely the aforementioned negative PR and resulting cap on their business model and eventual decline as word gets around if they don't relent and change the policy to "No Dogs" or whatever specifically spelled out in their policy. They need not give reasons for the policy, but it needs to leave no room for misinterpretation by guests or those administering such a policy. 

JMHO, Brian

I'd say to ask anytime you are e-mailing or calling a campground.  I can't imagine they would have a problem, provided that the cat NEVER got out of the RV.

I guess my biggest pet peeve are those that ignore the leash rules, thinking they can control their pets.  I was in the lounge at Mountaindale last year and looked up and through a window.  A deer went flying by, followed by a fairly large dog with no leash.  About 30 seconds later, the owner of the dog went running by, trying to get the dog under control.  Unfortunately, being 69-years-old, even as irritated as I was, I couldn't catch up with any of them.

If I had an indoor cat and it said no pets I wouldn't even mention it. So far we have only stayed in one part that allowed no pets at all. It hasn't been as common as I thought it would be.

 But then I would worry if my cat looked out the window, and someone saw him.  Not worth the stress of dealing with that. I'd rather just stay somewhere else. 

some times the CG is more interested in whether the pet goes outside.  If I don't let the cat out, they don't care that i have him.

Many of the parks in Mesa area have specific pet areas and make us park where all the dogs are.  No one likes it because my cat DOES go out on a leash, and gets all the dogs riled up.

 

I always admit to the cat because as I said, if there were an issue, I would want them to know theres a cat in the rig.
