Took my 6 year old basset hound here for the first time and it was worth the 90 min drive! We let him off leash and he had a blast, other dogs were very friendly along with their owners and the river and lakes were great for cooking off! Definitely returning!
Best place to bring dog off-leash in CT

This is the nicest place we have found in CT to being our dog for off-leash hiking. Beautiful running water for dogs to swim, long trails. We drive an hour to come here.

Paradise for dogs! Brought my 11yr old lab there this afternoon... He just loved it was able to swim and walk thru several streams of water! What a gem of a place!

Lots of water and logs of Dogs! The walk around the lake is relatively short (~2miles), but there is much to explore and many dogs to play with. I am definitely going back.
Awesome hike and lakes!

It's a wonderful little hike with your pup and I love to go the entire way around the lake. Nice little area for the pups to go swimming too!
off leash

Lake Mohegan is a great place to take your dog...and unlike the overview, dogs can be off leash as long as you are 100 ft away from the parking and picnic areas.
great place
Jim in shelton
This was a great place for your dog to walk and swim!!! It is a leash off place so if your dog doesn't like other dogs or is aggressive, stay away. Dogs come running up to you at all times.

Best place I have taken my dogs in CT yet! Hiking, swimming, waterfalls, beaches and best part...off leash in the woods for doggie run sessions. They swam in the water with 8 of their new best friends...going back within the week:)!!!
Water quality
Emily in Stratford
Do not let your dog drink the water! My mastiff got very sick a few days after swimming down by the lake and when I told my vet we had been to Lake Mohegan she immediately said the water was the cause. I got very lucky and got medical attention immediately but she has seen some cases where the dog can be sick for several months!
