I'm planning on camping with my hubby and beagles for a few days in July. We were planning on taking the pony and going to Myle Standish but he only wants to go for 2/3 nights so it's kind of not worth the whole pony/truck/trailer/fence etc
Does anyone have suggestions for somewhere quiet and pet friendly? I dislike those places where your camper/tent is just about touching the neighbors!

You can camp at Myles Standish without your horse. There are other areas for camping that are not equestrian, but I don't know how close the campsites are.

I looked at them. They are teeny tiny with no privacy. Hence hubby agreed to pony camp a little longer !

My favorite is Mt. Greylock in the Berkshires. It is a State Park, so very affordable, has very basic amenities [outhouses] and is part of the Appalachian Trail. The campsites are individual, and most are pretty private. You can drive to quite close to your chosen spot, and lug your gear 100 to 150 feet. Pets are welcomes but probably best on a leash. I've never seen an RV in there as the road is not really conducive to large vehicles. You are definitely not breathing down your neighbors' necks, though you might see lights off in the woods. The Camp ground is about halfway up the mountain, which can be driven to the summit and is definitely worth the view. Very quiet. #34 is my favorite spot.
