It's the ideal retreat--acres of beautiful land to explore, tons of activities, plush rooms and employees who cater to clients' every need. Welcome to the Golden Lake Recreational Pet Camp--a haven for pets and an opportunity for any animal-loving entrepreneur.

Set in the countryside of Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, Golden Lake opened its doggy doors in 1987. The facility includes bunk houses, a group play yard and a doggy den, and can house 50 dogs and 16 cats, with seven full-time employees on hand to care for them. Boarding rates start at $30 per day. Veterinarian services are also provided for an additional charge.
