    Ms Sandy had her 3 last year, may be restrictions on being leashed, but her's didn't get much of a chance to walk around as the kids were carrying them everywhere!

    My answer is yesmaybeish/it depends. Sandy had her two little dogs last year. I think the thing to remember is that 1) There will most likely be other dogs 2) There will most likely people there that aren't huge fans of dogs (so having very well behaved dogs is probably a good idea) 3) There are hogs in the area 4) And last, but not least... it is bear country


    If you are ok with all of those then I think it is ok (based on Sandy having her dogs last year).

    And, to add to that, there will be hog hunting going on during the nights, using hunting dogs. So, if your pets are likely to be bothered by the sound of hounds on the hunt, well...

    My only problem with Ms Sandy's dogs was the one growling at the 'bear' in the wee hours. We were down in the senior citizen section, not implying she is a senior but Grinder and I are. Had me reaching for my gun! With all the grub we had around that weekend I just knew it had to be a bear. But then I kept her up with my snoring.

    The Snoring you heard was most likely me. I keep The Bears wondering what all the gawd-awful racket is. I was on the other side of Buck Lake last time...more hammock camping & snoring to come for this next gathering.

    RE: dogs
    I had mine there and they were fine. A number of others have had theirs there too, and as far as I could tell, they were also fine. So yes, there will be other dogs there.
    And Samsara is right. Everybody (okay, almost everybody) likes a well behaved, leashed dog. Nobody likes a nuisance.
    Like always, you have to be aware of the environment for them and keep them safe. From the bears, gators, curmudgeon kids and rambunctious seniors.
    Sandykayak had three little dogs in her hammock with her. With the temps in the 20's, that sounded like a great idea!
    .
    So many trees, so little time...
    We follow where the Swamp Fox guides,
    His friends and merry men are we;
    And when the troop of Tarleton rides,
    We burrow in the cypress tree.
    The turfy hammock is our bed,
    Our home is in the red deer's den,
    Our roof, the tree-top overhead,
    For we are wild and hunted men.
