Shelly Smith says
Salmon Point discriminates against pitbulls so I wouldn’t call them dog friendly. Please be aware of the discriminations when recommending campgrounds because it’s a big problem for those of us with a dog people have determined is bad simply because they look a certain way. Don’t use the insurance excuse either.. they can get other insurance companies if theirs discriminates.
