Our Pet Policy


We love pets; all shapes and sizes! Our tent sites, RV sites and rustic cabins are all pet friendly. Please consider the temperament and general nature of your pet before making the decision to bring them along.Campground management reserves the right to deny pets that are aggressive and/or a nuisance to our campground guests. Please see below for our pet rules:

Aggressive Behavior
Aggressive dogs of any breed are not welcome at New River Campground Canoeing and Kayaking. If your dog exhibits behavior that is protective and unfriendly to strangers please do not bring it with you. If you decide to bring your dog and it exhibits this kind of behavior you will be asked to please find other accommodations. 

Nuisance Behavior
Dogs should be well behaved. If your dog should create a nuisance to the rest of our guests, you may be required to leave New River Campground Canoeing and Kayaking. An example of nuisance behavior would be your dog barking incessantly, disturbing other guests, though New River Campground Canoeing and Kayaking reserves the right to determine when a dog is being a nuisance. 


Leash Rules
All dogs are required to be under the control and visual observation of their owner at all times. All dogs are required to be on a leash whenever they are outside at all times.  No dog should be left tied up and unattended outside the owner's camping equipment. 

Clean up
It is the dog owners responsibility to clean up after their pets and to properly dispose of the waste.

You, as the owner of the dog, are responsible for any damages caused by your dog to our other guests or their property, and to the employees and property of New River Campground Canoeing and Kayaking. 

Service Dogs
Service dogs of all breeds are welcome at New River Campground Canoeing and Kayaking. However, these dogs must follow leash restraint policies and may not exhibit aggressive behavior.
