As we travel around this great country i am pleased to be able to share some fantastic Dog friendly Camp Spots in Victoria. We have searched high and low to inspire you to bring the whole family along on your next holiday.
We would love for you to share some of your dog friendly destinations with us also.
Blue Pool camping area, Briagalong State Forest
Blue Pool camping area in Briagalong State Forest is all about water, both for its proximity to the refreshing deep swimming hole of Blue Pool, and also for being the only campground with toilets in the state forest.
This could almost be the perfect summer campsite. There’s also a relaxed attitude to dogs and campfires (both are allowed). But always check with rangers regarding fire restrictions and whether you need to keep your pet on a leash.
Andersons Garden camping area, Mount Disappointment State Forest
If you are looking for a campsite that’s an easy drive from Melbourne, you could do much worse than Andersons Garden camping area. This camping area was damaged in the Black Saturday bushfires in 2009, but it’s well on its way to recovery, supported by regeneration initiatives and a few wet winters.
There aren’t many facilities here, but it’s free, dog friendly and you can also have a campfire (but remember to check fire warnings and restrictions before your trip). Sit back and enjoy the peaceful forest surrounds, or for more adventurous campers, this camping area makes a great base for bush walking, mountain-biking or horse riding in the surrounding forest.
Ada River camping area
Just on the outskirts of the enchanting Errinundra National Park, the free campsite at Ada River is a fantastic option for people travelling with pets or in caravans or motor homes, as the only campsite inside the national park is not suitable for pets or large vehicles.
There’s nothing particularly flashy about Ada River, but if you are looking for a campsite from which to explore the cool temperate rain forests of the national park, or even just a place to relax with a few mates in a nice forest setting, Ada River camping area could be right for you.
