• There are designated area’s within the campground map where dogs are/ are not permitted, including camp sites. Please call our office or ask when you arrive what sites allow dogs. If you book sites that do not allow dogs (such as our Beachfront Sites), you will be moved to a dog friendly site in the dog area.
• Dogs are not to remain in the campground without their owners. If you go out, your dog goes with you.
• All dogs must be on a lead at all times, especially during the night and toilet stops.
• You must have a bag and collect any droppings and place in rubbish bins, at all times.
• Your dog must not cause noise or other nuisance events. Please ensure you are the party to control your dog to avoid the embarrassment of management asking you to leave.

Please read our policy in-depth. Our biggest issue is guests believe the rules apply to everyone except themselves! Please don’t make us hold you to account, because if you are unwilling to follow our generous rules, you will be asked to leave without warning. This sort of behaviour ruins it for all.
