Yes at this stage we are still dog friendly, however we take other people’s concerns and complaints seriously.
Our dog policy is that ALL dogs are to be on a leash at ALL times. If your dog is seen unleashed at any time, you will be asked to remove your dog from the park.
Yes this means your dog, however big or small or however well you believe your dog’s behaviour is.
It is unfair on other campers who do not share your passion for dogs who have to have them running through their camp.
It is also unfair on other campers who do the right thing with their dogs only to have other dogs running free often causing their dogs to be stirred up or wanting to run off and join in.
It is also your responsibility to pick up after your dog EVERY time.
Please do not let your children take your dog for a walk unless they are prepared and comfortable to pick up after your dog.
Please do not take your dog to and then tie up at the amenities block whilst you are inside, as there are too many unclaimed deposits left in this area.
Please note:- Dogs are not permitted in the cabins or amenities block at any time. You will be asked to remove your dog from the Park if it is seen unrestrained at any time.
Any of the above breaches and you will be asked to remove your dog from the park.
