|I'd bring a good sized stake tie-out for each just in case the trees aren't convenient or will be too far from the people. The large cork screw type things appropriate for the weight of the dog. Last summer I bought the whole set up for under twenty bucks for my one dog. The tie out line was very strong metal cable and plastic coated so that it wouldn't get chewed up on edges, helps if things get wet. Lu was quite large and was really rambunctious at the time and it still worked great.
I also rigged up a homemade hands-free leash that went around my waist. Lu was still in that bouncy puppy phase at the time, and the campsite got frequent visitors, so that really helped work on greetings. I didn't want her jumping on random people coming to say hi. That also helped me when carrying things and doing chores, she was happy to be by my side, and I could use both hands. We both needed the focus heel practice, turned out to be a bonus!
(With a SD I know you don't have those problems, that's for anyone else reading this that might have the same puppy issues to deal with that I did. Camping was a great chance for us to stay close and learn how to work well together.) Have fun!
