Camp Wo-me-to is for cub scouts & 4-H mostly. The conowingo dam has nice camping areas around. It's about 20 min. away. DNR of Harford County will be able to give you better answers.

I see no reason why not. The hike is not technical and the trails are easy. There were several children and dogs there. Of course, be careful around the edges so they don't fall, but it should be no problem for a 5 year old.

The dog should be able to handle both. You will probably have to carry it over some of the creeks on the way to the falls depending on how small it is.
