Check Your Pet's Health

When camping with your pet, it's important to make sure your pet is healthy before embarking on your adventure. Many campgrounds, like Leelanau Pines Campground, have a pet waiver you must sign. This waiver indicates that your pet is healthy and up-to-date on all of their vaccinations. This is to ensure that our campers, staff, and all furry friends are safe at our campground! 

Pet Policies & Rules

In addition to checking your pet's health, we also recommend looking into the campground's pet policies and rules. Here at Leelanau Pines Campground, we have 2 major policies you should know that will help you prepare for camping with your pet.
Like most campgrounds, our campground requires that pets be kept on a leash at all times, unless in your RV site. We encourage you to take walks around our wooded campground with your furry friend, but just make sure they are on a leash. This way, you can keep a close eye on your pet wherever you go!
Lastly, please make sure to always clean-up after your pet. Whether you're staying close to home at your cabin or campsite, or are busy exploring our Camp-Resort, it's crucial to respect nature and our fellow campers in making sure the grounds are kept clean.
Knowing what to pack for your pet is one of the best tips for camping with pets.
