    Great Stay with Dogs!

    Our family loved it here! We have 2 boxers 14 months old and they loved being able to run around in the parks. They enjoyed swimming at the dog pond park too and getting to know the owners! The park is so well kept and clean, and the campsite we stayed at had a deck with a fenced area for our boys. My husband and I throughly enjoyed our stay!!

    Dog Heaven - Camper Heaven !

    Been traveling in a 19ft campervan for two weeks with two dogs and two adults. We needed a break and got that break and more.
    Bathrooms are clean and ac. Dog parks are incredible. Staff is friendly.
    We'd stay forever if we could. No idea how to keep this place so well maintained. There are not allot of campers here, a weekend after July. So the dogs have most of it to themselves.
    100% awesome. I work with rescues, and I will send all my dog loving friends here for now on.

    Dog paradise

    Everything is built with dogs in mind - there is even a service to check on/walk your dog if you're out for the day. The dog parks are perfect for old dogs like mine (he did the agility course yay!), swimmers, athletic dogs and everything in between. We stayed in the yurt which was clean, welcoming and well stocked. The bathrooms are sparkling clean and the camp store is well supplied. Super quiet at night, convenient to the horse park & dog-friendly wineries. Perfect places to make memories w/ your dog(s) w/ dog savvy, outgoing staff.

    Doggone good time

    We spent 4 nights here in a travel trailer. Ignore the poor ratings. The people here are fabulous. We added a day with no hassle when on the road. We cancelled a day when we encountered an emergency, no problem.
    The sites here are quite large. They have Rv sites, campers for rent, cabins for rent and yurts.
    7 dog parks that are completely fenced in including big dog, little dog, main, agility, lure, private and pond.
    Each werkend they have activities. We were here during a 4th of July weekend and the pulled chicken dinner was amazing!
    Bathrooms are spotless. Rv sites have water, sewer, electric, WiFi and they pick up garbage from your site twice a day.
    Firewood and ice are delivered to your site.
    AT&T has no signal here.
    No one under 18 allowed.

    A howling good Halloween

    One of the best campgrounds I have ever camped in! Sandy and Connie know the true meaning of customer service.

    We camped in site #12 (Benji) for three fun filled nights. Our dog, Pasha, took full advantage of all of the amenities #FourPaws had to offer. She swam in the lake, played with her other four pawed friends in the dog park, and enjoyed shopping in the store for snacks. The fenced area at our site was an added bonus.

    Bark-or-treating was the highlight of our stay. We'll definitely be back next Halloween weekend.

    Question the Other Reviews on This Site

    The two 1-bone reviews that have recently been posted on this site don't sound like the Connie & Sandy we know. They have always been more than accommodating for any issues that arise with reservations. We would recommend that you call Four Paws to discuss any concerns you might have after reading these reviews. In our opinion, these two reviewers must have done something pretty bad to get that kind of reaction from them.

    Best Place for Humans and Dogs

    This campground is awesome! Clean, well-kept, and over-the-top amenities for dogs and their humans. The owners and volunteers are great ... They go above and beyond to make sure everyone has a great time. Thanks for an awesome stay!

    Bad policies, communication and customer service

    I booked a 2 week cabin stay, a year in advance. Discussed adjusting my stay by 1-2 days, once the local event I was attending confirmed their dates. C***** told me over the phone that she would be happy to make date/fee adjustments. I paid a deposit and was told the balance was due at check-in.

    Event dates confirmed, I contacted to adjust the reservation by 2 days to reduce the cost, as per our phone conversation.

    She responded that the reservation now fell during a “special event.” She charged me a standard “weekly” rate, when she should have charged me a higher “special event” rate, therefore she would remove 2 days from the reservation but would not deduct from the remaining balance. She said the balance was now due 4 months prior to check-in.

    If I had realized my booking was “weekly”, then I would not have asked for the 2 day reduction - obviously I would have preferred to stay longer. I stated that, and asked why the balance was now due early. (During our prior phone conversation she said it was due at check-in. The footer in her emails states check-in).

    She informed me that the changes were “special event policies” (unknown to me at the time of booking) and that I would have to pay an additional $238 to KEEP those 2 days in the booking.

    I felt a little insulted and told her I was disappointed in the $238 fee to keep my full booking. While I found it rather strange to change the balance due date, I had no problem paying in full early. At NO time did I ask to waive the $238 fee or cancel the reservation.

    To my shock, I received a voicemail 2 hours later stating she was cancelling my reservation because I expressed “disappointment”. She said “We don’t want you to come with bad feelings or have anything happen once you’re here”. (No idea what that last part is implying??)

    Flabbergasted, I called. Of course I was disappointed in the charge. Of course I was surprised that my balance was due early. I never contested her policies, but felt it was within my right to ask questions and understand the changes. I certainly had not cancelled the reservation. She said, “I know, I’M cancelling it right now”.


    I received a snarky follow up email that said she would give a refund and accused me of trying to take advantage of her by “adding 2 days back” to my reservation. (Remember - she told me I could keep the full reservation IF I paid an extra $238, despite admitting that the standard weekly rate included those days, OR I could have chosen not to stay those two days and not been required to pay the $238. I can’t understand how either option would have been taking advantage of HER.) She also reminded me that she had the right to raise her rates at any time. (And apparently does.)

    I had read several negative reviews from others regarding this business, but thought perhaps someone was just having a bad day. Instead, it appears to be bad policies and customer service. Perhaps I dodged a bullet, and hope anyone reading this will as well.

    Pet paradise

    we have been to 4 Paws Kingdom three times now with our 2 Labrador retrievers. they love it as they always have somebody to play with or can go swimming in the pond. after they get tired out from playing, the adults have a fun time at the pavillion on Sat nights. The food and entertainment are both good! Really a fun time and the campgrounds are very clean. the bath house is very nice and clean. no taking showers with spiders here. you won't regret this one if you are a dog person.

    Gone to the Dogs!

    This place is more than just dog friendly. There are many fenced areas for dogs to be off leash including a private park for those dogs who might not get along with others. The park is well maintained and full of shade trees. I rented a cabin. It was very nice and clean, as was the bath house. It is super close to Chimney Rock Park and Lake Lure.
