If you’re RVing with your pets, there are plenty of pet-friendly RV Parks and campgrounds in Las Vegas. However, every RV park and campground has different guidelines when it comes to its pet policy.
Some parks only allow dogs under a specific weight, while others limit the number of pets you can have. A few parks even have restrictions on the dog breeds that they allow, or charge you an extra “pet fee.”
This post will give you all of the information you need about the pet policies at every major campground and RV park in Las Vegas. I’ll also let you know which RV parks have the best dog parks, so Fido doesn’t get stuck running around in a gravel pit disguised as a dog park.
Pet Friendly RV Parks in Las Vegas
Nearly every RV park in and around Las Vegas allows pets, and most of them even have on-site dog parks. However, their pet policies typically don’t mention other types of animals, like cats and birds. As a general rule, every RV park that allows dogs also allows other types of domesticated pets (animals like chickens and pigs aren’t usually allowed).

KOA at Sam’s Town – All pets at Sam’s Town KOA must be on a leash (maximum 6 feet), and accompanied by an owner. You cannot tie your dog up outside of your rig. This KOA has a large dog run with grass in the back of the park, and several clean-up stations located throughout the property.
Oasis Las Vegas RV Resort – The Oasis dog park is clean, and is made up of 7 small enclosed dog areas. This makes it easy to separate your dog from others if you choose.
