We love our four legged guests and for their safety and that of our other guests we have a few rules. Bring your helper! Service dogs are welcome at any KOA Kampground. Due to our insurance policy, dogs that are considered an aggressive breed can not be allowed on the park. Good behavior is required. Dogs of any breed that are hostile or aggressive will be asked to leave the campground, along with their owners. Bring the leash. Dogs must be kept on leashes no longer than 6 feet when outside their owners’ vehicles or rental units. Do not leave a tethered dog unattended. Of course, all animals must be cleaned up after. Remember manners. Constant barking bothers other campers. If your pet is too vocal, you may be asked to find other accommodations.
Dish washing is prohibited in the restrooms for sanitary reasons. However, we do have two locations on our campground that dish washing is permitted. Just ask us at the front office and we will be happy to point you to them. Quarters for the laundry are available at the front office.
