Safety Precautions for Your Dog While Camping 
It's always best for both you and your companions to be prepared to safely enter the wilderness, even when your companion is a furry friend. I have a few steps I take to keep my Golden Retriever safe while camping:
~Reflective color and leash
~Dog food=bear food, so take the necessary precautions with securing it
~Double check that your first aid kit is prepped for both humans and pets
~Periodically check their paws for any injury
~Conduct an end of the day check for ticks
~Train them to return to the sound of something louder than your voice, such as a whistle or horn

And remember your loyal friend will always be at your side, so if a trail is a bit too risky for you, it's too risky for them.

Does anyone have any other helpful tips?

Most dogs enjoy spending time in the “great outdoors,” and taking them on a family camping trip can be a lot of fun. You can go for a hike in the woods, go swimming in the lake, or just relax together at the campsite. However, before you go camping with a dog, there are things to consider and precautions to take. Careful planning will help keep your dog safe and ensure that the experience is pleasant for everyone.

We bring a copy of all of our two dogs shots from the vets with us just in case something happens. And some campgrounds want to see a copy just to make sure that the dogs are up to date on rabies shots even if your dogs has the rabies tag on their collar.

I like to make sure I have enough room in tent for my dog and something for her to sleep on.
