We happened upon 4 Paws Kingdom via a Google Search for dog-friendly campgrounds. We had no idea how seriously they took this claim. This place is the most amazing setting for dogs and their humans. A beautiful and relaxing space where dogs can safely run, swim, play and socialize with others of their kind. And the owners, Connie and Sandy,...

We stayed a week and decided to come back for another two weeks after another trip. Staff is super helpful. Unlike most RV parks where dogs aren't welcome into the office, they welcome dogs and even have a bowl of treats handy. They have well stocked dog stations all over the place (maybe every 3 spaces along the roads?) It...

Wonderful campground for pets and relaxation. Plenty of space and privacy. Very clean restrooms and shower. Great staff. Excellent location. Good Mexican restaurant in town. Very resonable prices. Good hiking trails around campground. Surrounded by trees with lots of shade. Abit out of town but a great place.

What do you get when you cross a dog park with a first class RV park? This place! We travel with 4 large dogs and have camped all over the USA. Nowhere have we ever seen a more beautifully kept or more brilliant place for our pets (and ourselves). Connie and Sandy were warm, welcoming, friendly, and helpful. Reservations via...

This is our favorite place to camp! The owners, the work campers, the campers, the facilities - oh and the FOOD are top notch. Not only are your pooches pampered, but so are their owners - love getting massages there - yes, they even have a massage therapist that visits!

I read through all of the reviews and have nothing new to add. The descriptions others have written are spot on... this place is awesome. It's like a B&B for dogs and campers. The private bathroom/showers are sooooo nice!!! We only use our camper for "middle of the night needs." There is lots to do, or if you want to...

The variety of dogs that are here weekly ensures that my girl almost always has a furry friend to run and roughhouse with. The variety of people who bring those pups are always amazing to speak with. I cannot say enough good about the owners this year, they have provided food, fun, and entertainment on a weekly basis, while making...

My wife found this wonderful campground online and I had the privilege of accompanying her and our new puppy, Darbie Doll, for a weekend getaway. The grounds are welcoming and very well maintained.

This is an adult only, dog centric campground. It is a wonderful place! Multiple dog parks for all sizes of dogs including a fenced pond for dogs who love water. The campsites are level, gravel and big enough for big rigs. The owners plan fun events for the human campers such as karaoke, potlucks and scavenger hunts. We plan to...
