Choose The Perfect Site
Did we mention that Jellystone Park™ Kozy Rest is a great option for pet friendly camping? We offer a variety of pet friendly cabins and RV sites to fit your needs. Explore our accommodations below!
Pet Friendly Cabins
If you're a glamper at heart, you don't need to give up the comforts of style in order to camp with your pet! We offer 6 different pet friendly cabin types for you to choose from. If you're looking for a cabin with only the necessities, book our Kozy Cabin. Looking to experience luxury camping? Book one of our Heathwood Cabins, Cindy Bear™ Chalets, or Boo Boo™ Bungalow. Or, if you are interested in a cabin that offers a little more than our rustic options but you don't need everything in a top-notch luxury cabin, we recommend booking one of our Ranger Ridge Cabins. All of these cabin types are pet friendly, so we are sure you will find a cabin you'll love!
Pet Friendly RV Sites
It's easy to go rv camping with your dog at Jellystone Park™! We offer 4 RV site options that are perfect for camping with pets. When you book one of our RV sites, you can enjoy full hook-ups, a fire ring, picnic table, and plenty of space for your pet to roam around. You can choose from gravel or concrete pads as well!
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 Jellystone Park™ Kozy Rest, 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 Camp-Resort!
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 Jellystone Park™ Kozy Rest, we have 3 major policies you should know that will help you prepare for camping with your pet.
First, if you are booking a pet friendly cabin, you must bring a crate with you. Whenever you leave your cabin and your pet is left unattended, your pet must be put in a crate. This is to ensure that all of the cabin's belonging are protected while you're away, as well as provide your pet with comfort that they are in a home they are used to.
Like most campgrounds, our Camp-Resort requires that pets be kept on a leash at all times, unless in your cabin or 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.
Pet Camping Checklist
It's hard enough remembering what you need to bring for you and your family, so how do you prepare for camping with your pet? We made a list of items you should add to your camping checklist for your furry friend!
Crate/Leash: We've touched on this before, but it's important to bring a crate and leash with you when camping with your pet.
Doggie Bags: You can never bring too many! Your pet and fellow campers will thank you for it.
Food: The pets have to eat, too! Don't forget to bring pet friendly food on your camping trip so they stay healthy and energized.
Favorite Bed: Make your pet feel at home during your getaway by bringing their favorite pet bed! Whether you're camping in a pet friendly cabin or RV site, your pet will have plenty of space to roam (and sleep).
Treats, Treats, & More Treats: All humans love a good dessert, so don't forget about your furry friend! Bring lots of treats and reward them for being the best camping companion around.
We hope this list provided you with some tips for camping with dogs or any other pet you may be bringing on your Pennsylvania camping trip. Once you camp with your pet, you'll never want to leave them at home! If you're ready to book your pet friendly camping adventure at Jellystone Park™ Kozy Rest, you can book online here.
