Bringing your furry-friend along with you on your camping trip doesn’t have to be a stressful experience.

It can be super fun, rewarding and will only strengthen your bond with your beloved pooch.

Here are some of the top activities to do with your dog on your next camping trip.


Before you head out on your trip- research some dog-friendly hiking spots for you and your furry friend to trek along.

Not only will you be keeping fit while on holiday, but your dog will be absolutely stoked to be visiting somewhere new.

All you need is a good pair of walking shoes and a lead- easy as!

Ensure you’ve checked out your destinations page to ensure your hike location is pet friendly!


Head to your nearest dog-friendly beach or dam and let your dog have the time of their life!

Even if your pooch isn’t particularly fond of the water, they’ll love playing in the banks and watching you have fun.

They can explore the sand, all the strange marine critters roaming about- and if they’re feeling mighty adventurous, they might just hop in the water with you!

It’s super fun for all involved, so hop to it!

Don’t forget to make sure you’ve picked a dog-friendly location before you head off.


Find your nearest local park, bring along some toys and you’ve got your afternoon sorted!

If you pack a frisbee, a tennis ball or your dog’s favourite chew toy before heading off on your trip, you’ll be able to play fetch and get your dog to stretch their legs.

Even without toys, it’s likely they’ll be zoomie’ing all around the place, especially if they’ve been in the car or the RV all day.


Dogs loooove to relax, potentially more than us humans do!

Pull out your favourite camping chair, a nice book, a glass of wine (if you’re 18 and above) and enjoy the fresh air with your pooch beside you.

Your furry friend can people-watch all the other campers passing by, and you can unwind and enjoy your day to the fullest.

    One thing you forgot to mention is that wherever you go with your fur baby TAKE A SUPPLY OF POO BAGS AND USE THEM!
    I am getting fed up with uncaring campers and visitors who let their dogs poop anywhere and walk off and leave it. I use about 2 times the poo bags I use for our dog picking up other dogs poop!!!
    Councils will ban dogs from areas if the owners don’t clean up after them.
