Take your dog along for your next camping trip in pet-friendly Oregon.
Oregon is a pet-friendly state overall, with pet-friendly patios at restaurants across the state. Many businesses keep water bowls outside during the summer months, and some gas stations even hand out treats to canine passengers. Dogs are also welcome on Oregon Coast beaches (except near snowy plover nesting areas), and across state parks, including in tents, at RV sites, and in some yurts and cabin rentals—the only exception is at the Dabney State Recreation Area in the Columbia River Gorge. There’s just one rule when it comes to camping with your pooches: They need to be on leashes no longer than six feet in length while in state parks. In addition, many individually owned, pet-friendly campsites and cabins put up no such restrictions, making a private Hipcamp a great option for those wanting the ultimate pet-friendly camping experience.
