Popular dog friendly campsites

Whether you’re staying in a mobile home or a tent, camping holidays are ideal for bringing your dogs along. We’ve a number of dog friendly campsites to choose from, perfect for walks by the beach or escaping in the mountains.

Camping la Baume is set on the edge of the Esterel forest, providing the ideal place to take your four-legged friends for a walk. Make the short drive to the coast and they can join you for a swim in the balmy waters of the Mediterranean Sea.

Travelling to Europe with your dog

Getting there with your pooch

Your dog can cross the channel with you in the car via Eurotunnel and most cross channel ferries allow dogs, although they are often expected to stay in the car.

Most trains, trams and metros in Europe allow dogs, but always do your research and check ahead. In many ways, the easiest form of transport when travelling in Europe with a dog is by car - just be very careful, and never leave dogs in a car in warmer or hot weather!

Always check that your travel provider allows pets before you go as their rules for pets on board may differ - there will also be an additional charge.

What you need before your pet goes camping

Holidays with dogs

Check the campsite pet rules before you go: Most dog friendly campsites will require your pet to be kept on a leash at all times while on the campsite grounds and for you to clean up after them. Be mindful if you have vocal pups, it’s expected that you be considerate of other guests and keep noise to a minimum.

Packing for your pooch: While you can always buy dog food and supplies when you get there you can make your holiday a little easier if you remember a few of the essentials: lead (and muzzle if required), carry case for smaller dogs, dishes, basket and doggy bags. Just don’t forget their favourite blanket or toy.

Microchip: If your pet isn’t already microchipped, this is the first thing you need to look into doing. Microchips aren’t only useful for when you’re travelling abroad, they can also make it easier to recover your precious pet if they get lost at home.

Pet insurance: Before you go, check whether your pet insurance policy is valid overseas. Simply check your documents or call your insurer to ask them whether or not overseas cover is included. 

Camping with dogs

Following the UK's exit from the EU on 1st January 2021, new rules and regulations are in place regarding travelling with your pets. If you plan on travelling to the EU with your dog, you will be required to ensure that your dog is microchipped and carries a valid Animal Heal Certificate and Rabies Vaccination.

For more information on travelling to the EU with you dog, please visit GOV.UK.

Please note: in general, dogs of category 1 and 2 are not accepted and vaccination records must be presented. Additional campsite restrictions do vary and onsite charges will apply. Our knowledgeable team will be able to book your dog friendly holiday and guide you on any restrictions your chosen campsite may have.
