Keeping Apache Family Campground Clean: A Guide to Pet Waste Cleanup

At Apache Family Campground & Pier, we pride ourselves on providing a welcoming environment for all, including our furry friends. We understand that many of our guests love to bring their pets along for the camping adventure, and we wholeheartedly welcome them to our campground. However, with this privilege comes a responsibility to ensure that our campground remains clean and enjoyable for everyone.

One of the most important aspects of responsible pet ownership at Apache Family Campground is cleaning up after your pets, particularly when it comes to their waste. While it may not be the most glamorous part of pet ownership, proper waste cleanup is essential for maintaining a clean and sanitary environment for all guests.

Here are some tips and guidelines for pet owners to follow while staying at Apache Family Campground:

Bring Waste Bags

Always come prepared with plenty of waste bags whenever you take your pet for a walk around the campground. Keep them handy so that you can quickly clean up after your pet whenever they go potty.

Dispose of Waste Properly

After picking up your pet’s waste, be sure to dispose of it in the designated trash receptacles located throughout the campground. Please do not leave waste bags lying around or toss them into the woods—this not only creates an unsightly mess but also poses environmental hazards.

Be Mindful of Others

Remember that not all campers may share your love for pets, and some may have allergies or sensitivities to pet waste. Always be considerate of your fellow campers and clean up after your pet promptly to avoid any discomfort or inconvenience.

Lead by Example

As a responsible pet owner, you can set a positive example for other campers by consistently cleaning up after your pet and encouraging others to do the same. Together, we can create a culture of cleanliness and respect within our campground community.

Pets on the Beach

We kindly remind our guests that while pets are welcome at Apache Family Campground, they are not permitted on the beach between the hours of 10:00 AM and 5:00 PM from May 1 through Labor Day. This regulation ensures the safety and enjoyment of all beachgoers during peak hours. However, outside of these restricted hours, we encourage pet owners to take advantage of the beautiful beachfront area and enjoy leisurely walks with their furry companions. Our goal is to create a harmonious environment where everyone can relax and unwind, both on the campground and along the picturesque shoreline. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding in adhering to these guidelines.

Animals on the Pier

For the safety and comfort of all our guests, we strictly prohibit animals on the Apache Pier. This policy helps to maintain a secure environment for visitors to enjoy the Pier’s amenities and attractions without any risk or inconvenience posed by animals. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation in adhering to this rule, ensuring a pleasant experience for all who visit our Pier.

By following these simple guidelines, you can help ensure that Apache Family Campground & Pier remains a clean, safe, and enjoyable destination for all guests, both human and furry. We appreciate your cooperation in keeping our campground beautiful and welcoming for everyone to enjoy. Thank you for being a part of our camping family!
