I am kind of curious. One of my reviews was not posted / allowed because we had not actually stayed at the park. The reason we had not stayed at the park was because of our pets and the owners' views on them.

We have a pair of large (service animal) dogs, Labrador cross. We made reservations at this park. When we arrived the owner met us at our motorhome and asked to see the dogs prior to allowing us in the park. Now this is a "membership" park, and according to their advertising they are a pet friendly park, no breed restrictions.

Long story short she determined one of our dogs was an aggressive breed animal, demanded to see our service animal paperwork (which is against ADA), and then rudely told us it would be $5 per day per dog IF we stayed as that "people with service animals are lazy, and do not clean up after their dogs".

We left. We never made it past the front gate because we knew this was gonna be a hellish stay if we choose to bend to her will.

Now when I submitted this review, it was rejected because we hadn't actually stayed at this park; although there are other reviews of this parks from people who had experienced similar problems. As a pet owner I WANT to know IF I am going to run into a problem BEFORE I arrive or make reservations. Am I the only one? ? ? Just a little curious...

That comment about disabled people being lazy is just....sad. I'm so sorry you had to go through that.

Just curious though, how did you get ADA docs for two dogs?

First let me clarify, ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) does NOT "give" you paperwork. It is merely the government legislation that allows prescribed animals exception from the "pet" policies and stipulations many places have. As for what is required and not required, any computer literate person can find it online, also any lawyer can provide a person a copy of it.


My hubby and I each have different medical conditions requiring different training for the animals. As such after receiving prescriptions from our doctors, we visited our local human society to pick out our animals. As my hubby is a Disabled Vet, the VA trained his animal for free. Mine on the other hand was trained through a mental health program. Both animals are required for our daily life.

Thus we carry both their original prescriptions and their Companion Animal registration with us. However ADA makes it very very clear this is not required and against said law for someone to ask for it.

I hope that helps....
