I've been meaning to come here and ask about our dogs and their need to poop and pee when in the CG.

We camped in a park that had a dog exercise area. It was a small fenced area with waste bags. Not huge and on the far side of the CG from where our site was. However, right across from us was the public restrooms, not the showers just the restrooms. The back side of the restrooms faced our site that had a patch of grass. Not lush or fantastic looking, sort of crab grassy and some blue grass but maintained and mowed.

Both of our dogs are young. A puppy that was almost 4mos at the time and our other dog just a little over a year old. Every time I tried to walk them down to the dog area, they spent the entire time sniffing all the other dog smells. But they were more than happy to go on the grass behind the restrooms. I picked it up immediately but was wondering if this was something other campers would frown upon.

As a neighbor camper, would this bother you? The grass was not set up for picnicking or big enough for kids to play on. Or are dog owners expected to only allow their dogs to poop and pee in those fenced dog yards?

You did fine. No problems from me if I were camped there. Dogs are gonna "do it" wherever they are at. The problem is with "parents" who don't pick up after their kids have "done it!"

No pee, no poop, no barking except in the owner's rig or a designated area.
Amazing number of rude owner's don't pick-up after their pets or themselves.

We allow are dog to poop & pee on our site..rarely take her to any of those dog runs because they always seem to be full of poop even when bags are provided.

Regardless of where she poops we pick it up. That is what I think most folks appreciate...I sure do!

We always follow the campground rules that they post. Most will post signs if they don't want your dog doing his business in a certain area.

I would have to add that if the grassy area was where people might cross it from anywhere to get to the facility, it might be best done somewhere else.

Often times people play games that can take them chasing balls (off road bocce, catch, football, Frisbee), and toys can and do often go everywhere.

Would you like to pick up an errant football that had skidded to a stop in a mostly cleaned up runny one?
