"Dogs' lives are too short. Their only fault, really."—Agnes Sligh Turnbull


Stop and scroll down for information needed when bringing your pet to Clayton Park, including our pet policy, local veterinarians, and other pet services. 




Clayton Park gladly welcomes you and your pets, per our pet policy. [i] Please read this policy in its entirety. You can also watch this short video on Pet Policy FAQs.

You must recognize that you are in an environment where there are likely to be many other dogs and many small children. Therefore, we take our leash requirements and supervision of pets seriously. To provide a safe and pleasurable experience for everyone, all campers at Clayton Park agree to abide by this pet policy. Have you ever been asked to provide proof of insurance for your dog? Do you know if you are insured in the event your dog bites someone? What about if your dog is bitten by another dog? Did you know that in the U.S., a dog bite occurs every 75 seconds, and every day 1000 people seek emergency treatment for dog bites? As responsible campground owners, we must think about it. Have you? When asked, Campers must also provide proof of insurance (your declarations page) for their dog. Read more about why you should insure your dogs here.



RV sites may register up to two (2) approved pets weighing no more than 85 pounds each.

If you're renting an RV from Clayton Park, you may register up to two (2) approved pets weighing no more than 25 pounds each.

Allow your visitors to bring an aggressive pet. Your visitor may bring one dog that is 25 pounds or less. You are responsible for the visitors you invite to your site and ensuring their registration.

Campers must register all pets with the office prior to entry into the park. Pets requiring approval include cats and dogs. All pet owners must certify their pet is current on its vaccinations and licensing and the owner is prepared to present proof of such upon Clayton Park's request at any time.  Clayton Park reserves the right to deny a pet registration for any reason. Campers must not tie their pets to trees or create any sort of unstable tie-out condition. Persistent barking or any type of nuisance and/or disturbance which agitates other Campers will not be tolerated. Clayton Park reserves the right to revoke any pet registration in the event more than two (2) complaints are received from other campers about barking or other nuisance conditions. Pets must not be left under the supervision of minor children under age 18 at any time. 

Any dog that Clayton Park determines to be exhibiting aggressive behavior is not welcome at Clayton Park. Dog breeds known to be aggressive, or mixed breeds, which include but are not limited to the list of breeds described herein, are prohibited at Clayton Park.


Restricted breeds include Pit Bull Terriers, Bull Terriers, American Staffordshire Terriers, American Bull Dogs, Rottweilers, German Shepherds, Bull Terriers, Akitas, Chow Chows and Doberman Pincers. Clayton Park may grant a waiver and make exceptions to this rule on a case by case basis only, and with an abundance of caution. A special waiver and proof of additional insurance is required before granting a reservation whereby Clayton Park management will meet, interact, and approve of the dog in writing. This waiver may involve special restrictions and can be reassessed and revoked at any time. Written waivers do not eliminate the pet owner's liability, nor do they imply any liability for Clayton Park due to, but not limited to, the misconduct of the animal, or the owner's mismanagement of the animal.


Non compliance with this pet policy and/or any incident which demonstrates a violation of this policy will result in the dog's immediate expulsion from Clayton Park property and may include forfeiture of all monies paid.
